This beer has been sitting for a long time now. Like 20 months old. Thankfully it’s a Belgian Quadrupel and they’re more inclined to aging. Here goes nothing.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY Beer #5: DUVEL TRIPEL HOP
Duvel Tripel Hop is a rotating release from the world-famous Brouwerij Duvel. I received this Belgian IPA as a Christmas gift and just finally cracked it open only a couple of days ago. I fear that may have affected the flavor and not in a positive way. Duvel Tripel Hop has a buzz-worthy 9.5% ABV.
Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale is a Flanders Oud Bruin style ale. Brewed once a year, this “Old Brown” ale referments in the bottle and clocks in at a respectable 5.5% ABV.
While cleaning out my old phone, I found a review for another Christmas beer. This is for Fantôme de Noël from Belgium’s Brasserie Fantôme. This saison/farmhouse ale is a winter seasonal with a bigtime 10% ABV.
Grimbergen Dubbel is one of the Grimbergen Belgian abbey beers first brewed almost 900 years ago. This dubbel clocks in at 6.5% ABV.
N’ice Chouffe is a winter seasonal from Brasserie d’Achouffe out of Achouffe, Belgium. This Belgian Strong Dark Ale has a warming 10% ABV.
Bourgogne des Flandres is a Flanders Red Ale from the Belgium brewery, Brouwerij Timmermans. This brewery has been brewing since the late 1700’s, with Bourgogne being it’s lone “dark beer”. Staying true to the style, Bourgogne des Flandres has a relatively low 5% ABV.
