33cl bottle, BB 28-06-19. Aroma is bready, spicy, citrus. Taste is soft and bready malts, floral, spicy, light citrus notes. Medium body and carbonation. Best Belgian Blonde I've had.
What a beautiful trappist ale! Very complex herbal aroma, flowery with hops and citrus. Strawberries even. Hopbitter taste with citrusfruit, some cinnamon and pepper. Some maltiness to smoothen the taste. Without any doubt one of the best beers in the world. Still my orginal rating was a bit too high (9 5 9 4 18: 4.5). Now a well deserved 4.3
330ml bottle from RusBeerShop in Moscow. Pours hazy honey yellow with a medium-sized white head with some minor lacing. Aroma is honey, citrus, spice. Taste is citrus (lemons), coriander, light spiciness. Really decent, shame about the price.
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. --- Beer merged from original tick of Trappist Westvleteren Blond on 23 Dec 2017 at 13:53 - Score: 7. Original review text: 3.5
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.
