Westvleteren Blond is the basic beer for the monks’ own consumption, since 1999, when the former 6° dark ale (red cap) was finally discarded, after the 4° had already gone that path.

MrOrla (4335) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2018
Botlle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of spicey yeast, slight grassy, peach, and faint bubblegum alike yeast, slight grains and hay - a bit bready. Taste is medium bitter with a moderate sweet touch of malts, loads of yeast - spicey and baguette alike malts, slight grassy hops - a bit herbal, light dry finish. Good stuff.

bierwolf78 (447) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2018
Uiterlijk: Helderblond bier met een krijtwitte schuimkraag. Geur: Kruidig, hop, gist, hooi, bloemig. Smaak: Hop, gist, citrus, droogbitter. Mond: zacht hoppig, olieachtig, eindigt aangenaam droog. Ik zal hoogstwaarschijnlijk (en dat is dan maar zo) heel wat heilige huisjes omver schoppen door dit te vermelden, maar dit is voor mij de beste van de 3 soorten die de bijna onbereikbare monniken brouwen, ik heb nog nooit zo lang gedaan over een glas blond bier, positief gezien hè. Een regelrechte topper in zijn soort.

PlutonowyMan (1051) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2018 Kolor złoty, silne zmętniony. Piana biała średnio wysoka, średniotrwała. Topnieje do grubego kożucha, przyzwoicie oblepiając kieliszek. W aromacie słodowość, kolendra brzoskwiniowe nuty owocowe i delikatne akcenty popiołowe. Po ogrzaniu słodowość nabiera nut miodowych. W smaku podobnie, kolendra, owocowość brzoskwiniowo cytrynowa, miodowa słodowość, nieco wilgotnej pszenicy i zakurzonej, betonowej podłogi. Finisz lekko kwaskowy z minimalną goryczką. Wysycenie wysokie w połączeniu z 'grubą' fakturą dość szybko powoduje uczucie sytości. Jest tu sporo ciała, piwo jest gładkie, miękkie, a nawet aksamitne.

DraftDodger (2173) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2018
Copenhagen 7/6 2018. 33 cl bottle from Den Belgiske Ølbutik, Vanløse. Simple bottle with no label. Green cap with the name of the beer, ABV and so on. Pours hazy, golden yellow with very big, bubbly white head. Settles asthin but intact layer of foam covering the surface of the beer. Considerable amount of lacing. Aroma is light and citrussy. Fresh grass, elder flower and citrus. Fresh and reminding me of summer. Humid basement rummaging in the background. Medium carbonation providing a prickly mouth sensation. Slightly thick texture. Flavor is medium sweet followed by a surprisingly strong bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter and finish is pretty dry. Pretty light yet nicely bitter Blonde with a solid foundation of yeast. If this is the Daily diet of Monks at St. Sixtus life seems to be tolerable for the Believers.

Mpuntmuts (401) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2018 Slightly hazy yellow pour with a big meringue like head. Smell of banana, wet dog, cloves, pilsner malts. Taste is halfway medium sweet, over medium bitter. Full mouthfeel and medium pricklies. Tasty tasty stuff!!! No mediocrity here!!!

dorain (960) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2018
Aus der Flasche (bbe 18-12-2016) im 2018-05 getrunken. Ein gut trinkbare blondes Bier was mich eher an ein Zwickelbierstil erinnert. Die Aromen sind langweilig und der Körper ist einfach dünn. Für mich ist es total unverständlich wie ein solches Bier so ein hohes Ranking bekommen kann.

langeveld12 (637) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2018 For a blond this beer is quite complex. It is gentle, smooth and well balanced. Perfect for a warm summer day. It is also medium bodied and not watery at all which adds to the pleasure. Very enjoyable and by far one of the better in its kind.
