De Dolle - Stille Nacht Reserva 2018 (Chardonnay B.A Belgian Strong Ale) / 750mL
De Dolle Brouwers (Esen, Belgium)
This seasonal ale from the Belgium-based brewery pours hazy orange and offers forward aromas of candied orange, honey, spiced apple and banana. The palate reveals flavours of fig, pear, and clove. This reserve version takes the already-stellar Christmas beer and ages it in chardonnay barrels for three years. It tastes like nothing you've had before. Vinous, slightly tart, rich, deep and oh-so-incredible. Bottles can be cellared for years and years.
