Helder blond bier met grote witte schuimkraag. Geur: mout, hoppig, fruitig, bloemig, geparfumeerd. Smaak: gistkarakter, een lekkere bitterheid maar niet overdreven, licht fruitig, perzik. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter.

BlazerT (1000) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Aged four years. Bottle. Trappist glass. Golden, lightly hazy with small, semi-thick, white head. Aroma is mainly yeasty, citric, malty and fruity. Lightly grassy. Taste is very refreshing, fruity the sweetness is not really pronounced here, rather firm and clear malty profile, in the end lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery to oily texture, average carbonation, finish is malty, lightly bitter and smooth. In general this one is like good German Pilsener with some light Belgian yeasty profile ;) Not the best not the worst just above average.

Copid (167) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Aromat kwiatowy kojarzący się z plastrem miodu, lekkie nuty drewna oraz lekka pomarańcza/cytryna. W smaku bardzo kwiatowe z przyjemną nienachalną goryczką, chce się więcej. Z całej trjki poleciłbym to piwo najbardziej.

adamnowek (2399) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2016
Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin head that vanishes almost instantly. Aroma is honey and yeast. Oily texture, though the carbonation is a bit much. Taste is more of the same. If this is what these monks get to drink every day, then I might just convert.

Mahognybrun med tjockt gulvitt skum. Doftar stt och brnd karamell. Smaken mycket fyllig med brnda sta toner. Eftersmaken lng och lite besk.

jelledebont (122) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2016
Erg lekker blond bier. Zachte, ietwat bittere afdronk. Na een tijdje komen de frisse aromas goed vrij. Zeker een van de betere blonde bieren, of speelt de naam en faam van Westvleteren toch onbewust mee in mijn overwegingen? En maar 5,8% alcohol. De meeste andere bieren die ik zo kan waarderen hebben toch een veel hoger alcoholpercentage...

Kolor: słomkowy, delikatnie zamglony.
Piana: obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, dość wolno opada, utrzymuję się cienka warstwa.
Zapach: słodki, sodowy, lekko miodowy, lekko estrowy, owocowy.
Smak: wyraźna pełnia, słodycz, nuty estrowe, owocowe, lekka goryczka, całość dość ciężka.
Wysycenie: średnie.

Parmenion777 (243) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 A hazy pale gold colour with a medium sized tight white head. Sweet bready, citrus yeasty aroma with a little spice. Clean sweet flavour, bread, citrus fruit, spicy and yeasty. The yeasty spiciness coming through in the finish.
