St Paul White 4.5°

From Sterkens brewery

St. Paul White is the white beer of high fermentation of Brouwerij Sterkens. It has a beautiful, light colour with a perfect, white head. With a spicy aroma of wheat, thanks to the technique of dryhopping, and striking notes of coriander and orange, the St. Paul White is an incredible thirst quencher. This sparkling wheat beer is a light and refreshing beer with a subtle, but very pleasant aftertaste.
The St. Paul White won the bronze medal in the category ‘White Beer’ at the Brussels Beer Challenge 2015.

Affligem 1074 – 6.8°

From Affligem/ De Smedt ( Henneken) brewery.

Pours rather clear blonde, good white head. Smell is maltsyrup, sweet, some sugars. Clear notes of citrus, followed by a fresh fruity character with banana hints. The malt gives soft notes of sweet bread and nuts. Finishing on fresh and light bitter notes.
Affligem is brewed in an abbey established in 1074 A.D. that was forced to close its doors five times, due to destruction or the political climate. And still they brew beer, having remained open since 1886. In the 1950s, the monks turned operations over to an independent brewery, hence Affligem is known as an Abbey Ale because it is brewed in an abbey, but not by the monks themselves. But the recipes and, techniques and traditions remain the same.

St-Bernardus Christmas Ale 10°

From St-Bernardus brewery.

St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is the youngest descendant in the illustrious family of delicious Abbey Ales by Brewery St. Bernardus.

Pours a cloudy, dark brown/mahogany colour with thick, foamy (slightly creamy) off white head that lingers. Nice lacing. Sweet and spicy aroma with hints of fruits and yeast. High carbonation, kind of like a chimay. Really refreshing even though it is sweet as well. Quite boozy with tastes of dates, a hint of cherries and a lot of spices. Great palate with a nice balance. Very fitting Halloween/Christmas season beer.
