Hah. It tastes amazing in any of those kingly chalice & tulip glasses, though! The Chimay chalices seem perfect for St. Bernie, Rochefort and Westmalle. Still keeping it in the brotherhood (it's like putting Pontiac alloy five-spoke wheels on your 1980's Camaro.)

And cheaper than many other places around the world. It is 50% more expensive in the U.S.


Think about this. This 6 pack is 18+ bucks, while the Mill Street Barley Wine is 13+ bucks per bottle.

Holy fuck! Seriously. Are Mill Street and the LCBO and the OCB insane?


Also, I may just head to eBay to bit up a Bernadus challice. I think I'll have to. While yes, the other ones like the Chimay, Leffe, and Maredsous(the best of them all) will do fine... it's not a Berny.

I bought 6 of them and reorganized them into six six-packs of each beer. A nice addition to my cellar.

I did the same, 12 6-packs. Created a whole new 'bernardus only' shelf in my cellar. Most the best before dates on these are pretty far out.

Is what's currently in stock of the St. Bernardus Christmas Ale all that we're going to be seeing, or is there another batch that's going to be making its way to stores soon?

Good question...but usually the stores try to get this all out asap to move it off the shelves....a lot of the good packs sell out before Xmas, so I imagine this is it, if I had to guess.

My local has bottles of Bons Voeux on special clearance - I think they're $17 or something. Problem is that they've been on display under the bright fluorescent lights for...geez at least 4 months now. I know Saison Dupont is susceptible to being light struck but what about this Abbey Trippel? Anyone know if it can withstand?

Brown bottle on the Bons Voeux isn't it?

If you buy it and it's skunked, you can probably get your money back so long as you have the receipt and bring back the bottle with liquid inside it.

I found some bottles at Easter, they were on the regular shelf at room temp and they were still good... If that helps.
