Wrong glass too, and therefore poor pouring ;) http://www.trappistwestmalle.be/images/schenken.jpg

What's wrong with the dishwasher? I worked food service after high school. I only wash pots and pans by hand.

Just kidding. I don't even have that glass. But I would look down upon a pub that would serve me a Westmalle in the wrong glass.

For sure. Most bars just couldn't sustain an inventory of Trappist glass! I have the majors: Chimay, Rochefort, Orval and Westmalle.

I once had a few Trappist beers in a nice little bar where the NE corporate headquarters for my company is. They didn't have specific glass but they serve me in a wide rimmed chalice, which I thought was a great touch. In fact, there were two female bartenders there and when the first grabbed a generic tulip glass, the second corrected her, "That's monk beer. Put it in the chalice."

Was that one bottle spunded?  If so, what did you conservatively shoot for in terms of carb levels?

I wish!

That's an actual Westmalle.

I'm going to be targeting 3.0-3.2 to start.

Something like that is ultimately the goal of my upcoming trials.
