Hazy golden, slighter lighter colour than the tripel. Durable, lacing white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, grapefruit, moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

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.

Extra 4 is a classic Belgian “Single” style. Hazy deep hay yellow liquid with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, perfume, cloves, bread, spices and white pepper. Medium bitterness with flowery sweetness. Yeast, grass, fruit, hops and citrus.

An amber coloured beer with a small tan coloured head. The aroma is typical Belgian Strong: good yeast and some lemony hoppy notes. Aroma is a bit flowery, firm and sweet. The taste has good strong alcohol and is fairly sweet. Good yeastiness and spicy hoppiness. It is the ideal beer for a feeling of sheer voluptuousness.
Dark amber color; giant creamy head. Very nice malty aroma, with notes of liquorice, vanilla, lemon, roasted malt. Really balanced, with good malt, roasted malt, light liquorice, caramel, good hops. Long final. Excellent! Strong caramel and slightly sour aroma. Very rich in flavor. Toffee and sweetness dominate the flavor to start moving to a slightly tangy bitterness and finishing mildly to moderately bitter with a component of roastedness. Despite the greater than average upfront sweetness, this beer finishes cleanly for the most part.
Hazy golden color with a big white head. Spicy lemon, cookie dough, riesling, cream, pie crust, leather, herbal/spicy hops. Smells like some sort of spiced lemon pie. Moderately-heavy sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter flavor. Taste is a tripel but with a sweet kick up the ass. Sweet but not cloying. The smoothness masks how strong this beer is. Alcohol is very well hidden, but shows a little in the finish. Very tasty beer.
Lightly hazed apple juice body topped by large and rocky white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, apple juice, some honey, herb. Taste is medium sweet, herbal/hay, apple, honey, some spice, alcohol. Ends up more dry and lightly bitter.
