UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 Pours gold an clear with a brilliant white head. Smells of dry malt, a touch of lingering wild yeast, some pepper, some perfume. Tastes dry with a nice bitter hint, lots of spicy hints, touches of salt. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is peppery.

Bottle. Drank it in Brugges. How could I not give the baby brother of the other Westies a perfect score. The best I have had of this "style". If one can find it, drink it.

330ml bottle from Gambrinus in London. pours slightly hazed golden with a lasting white head. hoppy aroma with pils malt body and some funky rustic barnyard elements. flavour starts hoppy, the malt is lean and crisp, the funkiness is there but its subtle. crazy drinkable. best session beer on the planet.

Alright folks, to all of you who love the 12, the 8/BLonde is AMAZING. I loved it. It had a sour flavor with some sweet wheat attached. I loved it, If I could have gotten 10 crates to bring home I would have in a heartbeat. Its wonderful stuff. It was just amazingly unique beer. I would not pay tons for it if I could get it in the USA, but its still great and worth a try for sure.

In bottiglia al Gambrinus di Bruges; per me, la migliore birra al mondo. Secca, floreale, dissetante, un finale amaro fantastico. Da bere a litri. Restasse solo una birra al mondo, vorrei fosse questa.

Une bire extraordinaire de plus, mais quoi de plus normal Westvleteren Des qualits hors normes: la couleur or pur, des bulles qui scintillent comme les toiles dans un ciel nocturne la montagne, une mousse blanche paisse avec des cratres crmeux qui se forment partout. Des armes qui se peroivent 1 mtre du verre (excusez du peu), qui se rpandent dans la pice, vous font percevoir des crales, du houblon, une belle levure et une pointe dpices, avec un rien de citron. La lvre trempe dans la 1re gorge avec une volupt sans pareille, et le liquide vous fait parcourir les contours incroyables dun champ de bl au soleil en t. Rien ne vaut cette impression dune vaste plaine de la Beauce sous les petits vents chauds dt juste avant la moisson. Lquilibre est merveilleux et se confirme sur toute la longueur avec un dveloppement a mas comme disent les Espagnols. La levure est parfaitement calibre pour ce type de bire. La finale revient sur une amertume de toute beaut, qui rvle un travail de haut vol dans lart du brassage. O tempora, o mores, quand nous avons loccasion de dguster pareil breuvage. Lesprit saint surveille toutes les bires de Westvleteren... Et spiritus sanctus. Amen.
