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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2017 P flaska. Dimmigt halmgul med mycket tjockt vitt skum. Doftar torrt, grs, sd samt lite brnd karamell. Smaken mycket fyllig med beska, lite sta toner. Eftersmaken lng och lite besk.

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 (259) - 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.

vincentvega72 (655) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2016
Mooi goudblond bier met romige witte schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Aroma van hooi, gerst, licht zuurtje. Vol en romig in de mond. Gist, witte druif, kandijsuiker, tarwe. Mooie zachte afdronk. Een van de betere blonde (trappisten)bieren.

cattaneopapa (385) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
330ml bottle purchased online. 5.8%alc./vol. Pours a hazy deep gold colour with one finger of lasting white head. Aromas of bread and yeast. Nothing impressive. Taste matches the aroma with notes of citrus and finishes dry. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Taste similar to Duvel blond. I recommend Westy 8 and 12 over this one.

Sweet cereal and yeast aroma. Malty clean and satisfying. Slight dryness at the end but the bitterness is very mild and balancing. Quite simple but really delicious.
