St. Bernardus Christmas Ale (750ml Bottle)
St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is the youngest descendant in the illustrious family of delicious Abbey Ales by Brewery St. Bernardus. This specialty beer of 10% alc. vol. is characterised by its deep dark colour, with a creamy, thick head and a full, almost velvety taste with a fruity nose. It's a seasonal ale, brewed annually for the holiday season. The long winter nights are perfect moments to savour this ale with or without friends and to enjoy its unique, complex taste and after-taste.
Fine fruity notes with robust malt background. Not as pudding like as I could have expected but I am not really au fait with the Belgian attitude towards desserts such as these. As always though, a fine BSA.
