St. Bernardus

Pater 6 2016

Darkest brown patched with bubbles as lichens. Magnificent and noble head of sable; loose cartography of lacing. Brown sugar, dark, grainy malt and leather that all turns smoky with a swirl. Dry tobacco whiffs and roasted beets and grilled sprouts and caramelized onion. Light of touch in autumn woods, with applewood, cedar and late afternoon shadows of vanilla bean, caramel thread counts, clove smoke, and light malts to nicely bundle and button the parcel. These perfumes of devotion are lifted on wildflower scrub. #trappist #trappisten #stbernarduspster6 #abbeyale #peter6 #belgianbeer #bier #biere #birra #ale #brstbdrnard — 3 months ago

Brasserie de l’Abbaye du Val-Dieu

Val-Dieu Cuvée Spéciale 800 ans 2016

Peruvian salt crystals, brioche, and fittingly: beer. Hints of Egyptian musk. The aromas are constantly changing. Leather and bee pollen with a soap note. Golden and cloudy with a persistently sudsy head. Salinity is evident. Grapefruit, iron, sunflower seed, and a big yeast presence with lingering breaded stuffed clam misted with butter and all wrapped in grape leaf. #valdieu #belgianbeer #abbeyale #trappiste #trappist #monkjunk #cuvee800 #yeastbeast — 2 years ago
