This new Duvel Tripel Hop Cashmere Belgian IPA (9.5%) is very flavourful showing nice underlying fruit tones of pear and some lemon plus peppery and bubblegum spice along with the more hop forward resiny-viney bitterness - it's a densely-flavoured brew of the type I particularly enjoyed when really discovering craft beer, and I like it right now. Looks beautiful in the Duvel Tulip.
Also liked that unserious Jacobins ROSÉ MAX berry-cherry-currant ale from Belgium in the teeny 250ml bottle, it's a simple,sour with loads of convincing fruit and for what it offers to be I think it's very legit. It's a brunch bennies and waffles kind of beer. Remember the Only Cafe in its brunch heyday?
Can't wait to try the Unibroue Éphémère Baie d'Argousier / Sea Buckthorn Berry... these 750mls have crept up in price over the years but a good iteration of this series is welcome. My favorite of all time remains the Pomme, which for me was like an apple orchard in a glass with an overnote of vanilla. It's damn French.

It seems like there's been a mini boom in Trappist breweries in the past 5-10 years. I remember when I could name them all! Speaking of which — where the HELL is Orval?!
I also have a number of those Avec Bon Voueux Dupont Christmas beers they put out, probably stellar cellar candidates as well.
