It’s a belter
The St. Bernardus Abt 12 is the pride of our stable, the nec plus ultra of our brewery. Abbey ale brewed in the classic ’Quadrupel’ style of Belgium’s best Abbey Ales. Dark with a full, ivory-colored head. It has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavours and excels because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite. Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It’s a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter, and sweet. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.
Oh yes indeed it is!
I was lucky enough to stay at the St. Bernardus Brewery for the night. Did the tour, had a fanrastic horse steak, washed down with several Abt 12’s.
A splendid evening.
Nice accommodation as well. Highly recommended for an ale oriented weekend in Belgium. 🖒
I’ve got a “winking monk” bottle somewhere. Isn’t that every thousandth bottle or something? Nice touch.
gender politics are fatal.
now that’s an unexpected blast from the past!
Rarest one !
If you can ever get some of this stuff, it is great. Kernow Bys Vykken
You pay £6.50 in the Booking Office at St. Pancras station, but you do get your pint in a pewter tankard so…
