You will like to know that…

The Westvleteren 6 is a product from the Trappist brewery of Westvleteren, founded in 1838 in the Saint Sixtus Abbey ("Sint-Sixtusabdij") in Vleteren, Belgium. A small village near Poperinge, a city known for its hops production.

The local production of this beer is not designed to supply the growing global demand. It can only be sold in small quantities on a weekly basis at the doors of the monastery where only individuals (no companies!) can come and buy their previously ordered lot of bottles. This explains why Westvleteren 6 remains a highly exclusive beer.

4 /5

The Westvleteren Abt 6 is a Trappist ale recognized around the world and with the greatest beer lovers for its quality and its rarity. Brewed within the Abbey of Saint Sixtus in Belgium, its annual output remains fixed malgrès success because the monks remain committed to the rule of St Benedict, a rule of ancient abbey, which limits the annual production. The Westvleteren Abt 6 is recognizable outside of its simple green cap, the bottle is completely devoid of label. Once paid, you discover this Belgian beer with a copper color that is in the glass as a white foam expressive. Here the flavor seems to have rested for some time and the first oxidation colors are revealed. On the nose, you find raisins, black fruit, honey, caramel malt with dark tones. The palate reveals caramel, malt, dried fruit accompanied by light bitter notes. The Westvleteren are then also valued for their aromatic complexity, a good time awaits biérologue with this product.
