davidpl (435) - Santiago, - FEB 15, 2009
Appearence: Golden semi-cloudy color. Big head, white, some rocky and very lasting. Aroma: dominated for the pale malts, the yeast and the hops with herbal smells and lightly citric. Notes of bubble gum, grass, grapefruits and flowers of chamomile. Flavor: pale malts from the start, some ephemeral, with quickly progress of the hops with herbal notes, medium dryness, also lasting and with a "elegant" touch. Fruity reminiscences like grapefruits, unripe pineapple and some of eucalyptus and ruta. The yeast has a harmony presence. Palate: medium body, silky texture and low carbonation. Remarks: with the "elegance, harmony and balance" characteristics of the Westy, nice-delicate hoppiness, without high complexity but it exists. Very good blond beer.

hauxe (582) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2017
Pours hazy golden orange with a frothy head that lingers. The aroma is overall fruity, dominated by pear, apple, and sparkling white wine. Taste is bittersweet, fruity, light spice, lightly yeasty, with a tart apple undertone. The body stays fairly light. Good.

KW92 (1414) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017

Butelka z datą: 18.08.2017
AROMAT: Intensywny. Dominują drożdże (fenole: goździki) oraz słody (zboża). W tle nuty estrowe (gruszka).
SMAK: Słodowo-drożdżowe. Posmak przyprawowo-korzenny. Odczucie w ustach: gładkie. Świetnie ukryty alkohol.
WYGLĄD: Barwa żłtozłota, zmętnione. Piana średniej wysokości, szybko znika.
OGLNIE: Delikatne, dobrze ułożone.To moje pierwsze spotkanie z trzech zaplanowanych spotkań z "żyjąca legendą" piwnego świata. Czuję lekki zawd, ale wierzę, że teraz może być już tylko lepiej.

GemmeDeReve (64) - FRANCE - FEB 13, 2017
Bire blonde, pas trop de mousse, une couleur dore, quelques "poissons" (faut dire que je les garde depuis au moins 5 ans) elle nen reste pas moins ptillante pour autant, un nez fleuri, herbac. Elle a un petit peu damertume mais reste trs douce, La rfrence dans les bires trappistes, une incontournable essayer...

rand (1610) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle. Superb blonde a little veiled with a pure white head and sparkling Champagne. Aromas of malt and hop, herbs and fruity, hints of honey. The taste is bitter-sweet, creamy with honey, toffy, fruity and very present hop with notes of grass, flowers and zest of citrus. The Bitterness prevail over the malted sweetness. Long and bitter finale.
