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.

На удивление пиво абсолютно не имеет пены. Аромат медовый и слегка кислый. Напиток имеет большой осадок. Вкус имеет ярко медовый вкус также ощущается хмель и легкая фруктовая горечь. Послевкусие медовое но через 10 секунд оно полностью растворяются. В целом весьма ценный экземпляр.

Subtle for a blonde, the right balance of fruit flavours and not too bubbly or bananary. Only happened to have a few sips of my friends glass as I was the designated driver. Picked up six bottles of Westvleteren 12 though, so it was worth the journey. Time to keep my eyes peeled for the 8 :D - all in all, a great beer but not really my thing.

Butelka. Po otwarciu gashing. Aromat drożdżowy, bananowy, nieprzyjemny. Kiepski wygląd - pełno syfu pływa w środku. W smaku wodniste, bardzo nagazowane, z nieprzyjemnym finiszem, zalegającą goryczką. Gdyby nie cena to bym wylał.

sjogro (4840) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle shared at home. Didn’t go through the ridiculous process required to ‘legally’ obtain a bottle, instead bought online from a Belgian webshop. Pale golden with white head. Sweet malts, slightly oily feel, cardboard, grains, chaff, dry, green tea. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body and soft carbonation. Drinks as a very nice, yet dusty premium pilsner.

Maakun (6543) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Bit hazy golden with big white head. Quite some bready malts, apricot, light yeast, bitter grape skins, green tea, light sweaweed, soft fresh grains. Medium sweet and bitter. Surprisingly full bodied for the abv with quite full carbonation. Nice enough.

Mishnok (415) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
A lot of very high scores for this beer. Is it just because it's Westvleteren? Anyway, it's a gold beer with a bit of a head and a yeasty aroma. A bit hoppy in the taste, hint of spice. Nice, but not that remarkable. Nice body, light carbonation. Aftertaste a bit so-so ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lekker goudblond bier. smaken van gist, kruiden, beetje degerig. Een weinig hop. ideaal voor bij brood & kaas.
