The Beers In My Bucket List

September 6, 2020 – 10:29 am 2 Comments

After all this way, at last I manage to try out The Westvleteren Trappist beer. This beer are always in my bucket list. I have goose bump opening the bottle. My heart is jumping up and down, that’s how excited that finally I’m able to try this beer!

Trappist Westvleteren 8
Can smell the complex malty with herb/spice and light sour plum.

The entry is carbonated with herb sweetness. Light grassy and have that dot of finishing of sour plum. As you drink a long the bitter of grassy hops do stand out a bit. A complex flavour and vapour of sweetness that come with light herbs kinda way.

Interesting flavour combination. This beer have been kept for 3 years, the beer is balance with flavour and aroma which really make it a good beer.

Trappist Westvleteren 12
The nose is complex with sweet and pleasant fragrant of bouquet. Bubble gum like with petrol. Sound weird but this is how I felt.

The carbonation of the beer is lovely. The entry have this biscuit/cookie like sweetness with nice carbonation. Can taste a light alcohol at the end. The beer character is complex with changes of taste. Can get a nice bouquet of after taste.

At last, after all this year I able to try it. I start to understand why all this beer is best kept for few years before you drink it. I think the 12 can keep for few more years to make it more rounded and balance. The taste and flavour are good.

I still have 1 bottle of 12 at home. Now I know what I’m storing and know the potential of the beer when it fully mature. Surprisingly the flavour will be more balance and the taste will be great. The next pose about this beer will be few years from now. By then I believe this beer will still give me the goose bump when I drink it. Thanks to Eiling for sharing this awesome beer with me! Cheers!

    don’t open the 12, keep it for few more years. The one I have a bit too young but lots of potential to aged it further!
