Westvleteren Blond (330ml Bottle)
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 out a straw topped a cream head. Aroma of light spice a nice fresh hop and some sweetness. Tast of a belg yeast a nice spice and some light hops. All around great brew.
Belgian-style ales seldom fit neatly into classic beer styles, but this category represents those "session" ales (in Belgium this means under 7% abv!) that do not fit other categories. Colour ranges from golden to deep amber, with the occasional example coming in darker. Body tends to be light to medium, with a wide range of hop and malt levels. Yeastiness and acidity may also be present.
