Poured from a bottle with a Best by date of 14.02.15 into a snifter glass.

Appearance: Blonde, slightly hazy, with a white head that lasts a while and fades to a creamy, thick crown and lacing.

Smell: Loads of belgian yeast, hints of banana, sweet creamy sugar. A bready malt comes though too.

Taste: Pretty standard Belgian blonde really. A tiny hint of skunk toward the end but not unpleasant. Basically the same as the smell. A pale hop character leaves some bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Appropriately effervescent and creamy, really lovely for the style.

Overall: A very solid beer. Not one I'll necessarily go out of my way to get again, but it's clear why Westvleteren is held in such high regard.

Appearance: What a beauty! Great orange hue with a decent head and lacing to boot. Little effervescence and no floaties.

Smell: Medium intensity. Funky, orange, banana, bready, yeasty and grainy. Very delicate and rustic feeling.

Taste: Follows on the nose, albeit in a slightly more muted and mild manner.

Mouthfeel: Near perfection. Everything you would ever want from a Belgian blond: Low carbonation, mildly acetic, medium full bodied, warming ABV and a long delicious clovey, banana and fruity aftertaste.

Overall: A beautiful beer that falls short only where it concerns aromatic intensity.
