St. Bernardus Abt 12 | ZE Beer Review

St. Bernardus is the brewery that at one time had the contract to brew for Westvleteren. My understanding is that this beer is about as close as you can get to Westy 12 without actually drinking Westy 12.

I'd had this before, but not for a couple of years, and I believe this bottle was fresher than the bottles I'd had in the past. In any case, this was a really great experience and I think that shows on camera.

Absolutely with you on this one. Definitely one of my top 5 of all-time.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks, glad you liked the review. I'm doing an all-import month in January, and I plan on doing a lot of Belgians, so check back for that if you're interested.

Cheers!
