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.

Rictus' rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 18/20
Rictus (126) - Dothan, Alabama, USA - SEP 25, 2007
A torrent of bubbles in a fuzzy medium gold ale. A large head that took up half the glass. Bright white in color and diminished as a tiny plateau in the glass. Dusty smell. Smells slightly sour and dusty. Some indescribable fruit an peppery bitterness. Leaves your tongue and cheeks feeling tingly. The palate definately doesn’t feel the way it looks. Prickly but not very heavily carbonated. The palatte let it down some but I’d definitely have this daily if it was widely available. The lacing was a beautiful firey pattern too.

Butelka. Po otwarciu gashing. Aromat drożdżowy, bananowy, nieprzyjemny. Kiepski wygląd - pełno syfu pływa w środku. W smaku wodniste, bardzo nagazowane, z nieprzyjemnym finiszem, zalegającą goryczką. Gdyby nie cena to bym wylał.

Bottle shared at home. Didn’t go through the ridiculous process required to ‘legally’ obtain a bottle, instead bought online from a Belgian webshop. Pale golden with white head. Sweet malts, slightly oily feel, cardboard, grains, chaff, dry, green tea. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body and soft carbonation. Drinks as a very nice, yet dusty premium pilsner.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Bit hazy golden with big white head. Quite some bready malts, apricot, light yeast, bitter grape skins, green tea, light sweaweed, soft fresh grains. Medium sweet and bitter. Surprisingly full bodied for the abv with quite full carbonation. Nice enough.

A lot of very high scores for this beer. Is it just because it's Westvleteren? Anyway, it's a gold beer with a bit of a head and a yeasty aroma. A bit hoppy in the taste, hint of spice. Nice, but not that remarkable. Nice body, light carbonation. Aftertaste a bit so-so ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lekker goudblond bier. smaken van gist, kruiden, beetje degerig. Een weinig hop. ideaal voor bij brood & kaas.

En bouteille aux HoppyDays de Liège. Blonde trouble, petite mousse. Nez subtil mais discret sur le pain, le citron. Bouche puissante, maltée avec goûts de citron notamment. Vive effervescence et légère amertume. Bonne mais pas "hors du commun" !

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 Bottle. Hazy yellow pour with white head. Aroma has citrus and mild yeast. Taste is round and balanced with herbs. Still very fresh. Medium carbonation. Light body.

Yeasty. Malty. Clove. Spice. Pours a murky pale yellow with a very thick foamy head. Retention for days. Dough. Spice. Just a little chewy. A hint of earth. A little bit of a hop bite toward the finish. Very clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Havde fornøjelsen at få fingre i et par flasker i Kvickly Allerød, til en fantastisk pris på kr. 45,- stk. Lækker ale, lys, flot og nærmest frugtig. Vil klart købe igen!

Belle mousse type bulle de savon, bon goût de houblon et amertume qui reste bien en bouche. Bière plutôt agréable pour une blonde, carbonation moyenne mais date de consommation dépassée. Bière sympa à boire
