Top 5 Beers – verbleibenden zwei

4. St. Bernardus Christmas Ale (Trappist – Christmas Ale)

stbern

I think this may have been my first true Belgian beer ever. When I bought this I knew only the tastes that were classic with Belgian darks, but this beer opened my world to a whole new part of the beer world. Tastes of dark fruits expload in your mouth on the first tip. The classic trappist Belgian yeast dominates the palate: spicy, warm and inviting. I am not sure if I just love this beer because a nostalgic value or because of the taste. This beer packs a punch at 10.5 percent, but it is the perfect Christmas night warmer.

5. Unibroue La Fin Du Monde (Tripel)

LaFIN

Anything that Unibroue touches seems to be pure gold. Their Belgian yeast strand is magically delicious. This beer is so powerful, yet it covers up the high mark of alcohol it carries to the party. This is my choice New Years beer. How better to celebrate the coming of the new year than drink a beer that is named “The End of the World”? Spicy, warm, crisp, this beer is a solid classic (more like the gold standard) of Belgian Tripels. Do yourself a favor, grab a sampler from this K-Beck brewing company, and have yourself a good night.

Cheer,
Eric
