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.

Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma is lemony, grassy, and really reminded me of Pine-sol. Taste was very hoppy, with some slight spice that didn’t really mesh well.

Bottle from Papsoe, sampled with Zinister. Thanks!
Pours cloudy yellow with a nice head and an aroma of Spring lemon, strawberry, and Sprite. Tingly lemon and coriander flavors with a subtle Pilsner finish. Coating mouthfeel. Pretty good; very refreshing.

Wow again tasted at the Trapist festivall in Niel. A not so strong trapist beer but heavenly good tasting

If the good brothers are guilty of any sin, it is of sloth: they make only enough of this delightful beer to fund their abbey, whereas with a little more work, they could bring even more joy to the world. Simply put: the best blond you will ever have (even if you’re Joe DiMaggio).

Unclear hazy yellow with medium white head. Hoppy aroma with some fruits. Not your common trappist with a hoppy flavor. Don’t get the fuss about this one...

Skyview (5942) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Sampled from the Yespr collection, shared at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear light golden blonde brew with a creamy white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of light white bread, some tropical fruits, honey and a touch of yeast funk. Taste is light bodied, smooth, creamy with a spiced tropical fruit with light bread flavor. Finish is semi-sweet at first and then a light mild bitterness.

Hellomynameis and I disagreed on this one. It wasn’t what I expected but I enjoyed it very much. It reminded me of Orval. Abundant hops in the aroma, like a saison. Gold in color and even for a bottle that I understand to be quite old, well carbonated and no oxidation. Flavor has Belgian yeast, salt, light malt with just a little sweetness. A dry finish and overall a refreshing beer.

light clear golden colour with a bit of a stark white head. The nose is hoppy and spicy. The flavour was both surprising and dissapointing. Lots of hops was very surprising but the flavour was aweful.

Thanks to Yesper for hooking us up. Pours a nice cloudy straw golden yellow. Nice spicy nose with hints of tropical fruit and citrus. Kinda dissapointing flavor, but a nice balanced creamines and spiciness, as well as a nice biscuity maltiness.

Bottle. Bought @ Wohlenbergs, Sønderborg. Pours a wonderfully clear golden. A wonderful array of bubbles reaching upwards like metal shards to the end of a magnete. Beautiful creamy white head, like whipped egg-whites. It stays and stays. Aroma is softly fruity, some pineapple and yeast. There is a feeling of barn in there mixed with a little soft spicyness, mostly coriander and vanilla. Wonderful creamyness. Flavour is great as well, very complex. Sweet at first with a very prominent malt character. Then it turns dry and frankly a little hoppy bitter (surprised me). The spices mix up nicely at the end. Wonderful, like a low-alcohol Houblon IPA :o)
