• Brasserie de Blaugies Saison D’Epeautre (Belgium)

    Dry with more than a hint of fresh wheat, sweet malt and balancing tart notes. It is very effervescent with persistent bubbles. The distinct, nearly coarse grain notes offer much intrigue and pleasure. Mildly earthy like great Champagne, and it goes down just as easy. 4 Stars

  • Riva S.A. Lucifer (Belgium)

    Bright pale golden color. Medium-bodied. Notes of tropical fruit, citrus, pale malts with mild bitterness. Pours with a big frothy white head. Zesty, lively entrance with subtle fruity flavors and a crisp edge through the finish. 4 Stars

  • Belle-Vue Framboise (Belgium)

    Pale brown-red hue. Aromas show cocktail cherries and oak. Sweet, dried cherry flavors with lingering oak spice character. A very pleasant oak-aged fruit beer though this shows very mild lambic tartness. 3 Stars

  • Brouwerij De Smedt Affligem Abbey Dubbel (Belgium)

    Bright red-chestnut with a rich, creamy head. Aromas show a sweet malted barley character with notes of dried fruits, allspice, cardamom, and sour cherries. Rich caramel malt flavors foiled by brown spices and tart fruits highlight the palate. Texturally it is very pleasing as the dense beads of carbonation roll and build to a creamy sensation Complex and balanced. Quite hedonistic. 4 Stars

  • Brouwerij De Smedt Affligem Abbey Tripel (Belgium)

    Pale yellow-gold with a lacy white head. Full-bodied. Hugely aromatic with apricots, spicy hops and pale malt. Full pale malt flavors are rich and intense, yet not sweet. Impressively complex, yet not remotely cloying or thick. 4 Stars

  • Pinkus Jubilate (Germany)

    Brilliant copper to amber color. The nose is filled with scents of toasted grains accented with a touch of a floral hop note. The palate comes across as quite light initially but it really grows on you blossoming with each sip. It shows great depth with a richness that is never heavy or imposing. If finishes clean with trailing notes that echo the nose perfectly. 3 Stars

  • Dupont Saison, Farm House Ale (Belgium)

    Cloudy with a bright golden color. Medium-bodied to full-bodied offering unique depth and style. Outstanding floral hop aromas provide a fruity accent. Pours with a huge frothy white head. The mildly sweet pale malt bite gives way to a bucket-load of wonderful hop flavors that never turn too bitter while giving the finish great authority and definition. 5 Stars

  • Brouwerij Van Steenberge Piraat (Belgium)

    Intense golden-yellow hue. Pours with a huge, rocky white head. Full-bodied. Candied, sweet malt aromas with complex spiced accents. Intensely malty and sweet with a chewy, thick mouthfeel. Spicy hops come through on the warm finish. This is a thick, warming brew, with a touch of intentionally cloying character. Beware of its potency. 4 Stars

  • Abbaye des Rocs Spéciale Noël (Belgium)

    Rich, complex fruit aroma of cherries, golden raisins, peaches, and assorted dried fruit, laced with honey and caramel. Smooth, rich flavors reminiscent of cherries dipped in caramel, finishing with notes of dried chocolate, roasted almonds, and a hint of molasses. 4 Stars

  • De Ranke Pier Noel (Belgium)

    Hazy copper color with a thick, rich head. The nose is quite vinous with deep accents of sweet malt, toasted grains, sour cherry, wood, ginger, nutmeg, citrus zest and gooseberry. The palate echoes the nose with soft cider flavors trailing on the finish. Often a favorite but this year’s version doesn’t live up to years past. 3 Stars
