Got it in Brussels and let it lager for 3 months. It's golden but cloudy from yeast. The aroma is weaker than I expected, but everything else is wonderful. It's a tad spicy, but wonderfully full-bodied. It tastes like a Belgian pale ale with a slightly dry aftertaste.

Fresh bottle poured at Kulminator in Antwerp. Pours hazy yellow with lots of yeasties floating around and a fluffy white head on top. Aroma of straw and hops, plenty of yeast and light fruits. Flavor is slightly dry, with apples and pears pairing with straw, a bit of sweetness balanced with hop bite, tripel funk, and some other yeast spice. Light bodied, medium plus carbonation. Really nice brew and glad I have some bottles to take home.

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.
