Featured Beers - Specialty

Brouwerij Het Anker

Mechelen, Belgium

They Say: “Thirty-eight years we had to miss the Christmas beer but in 2002 the tradition was restored with Gouden Carolus Christmas. It’s a strong, dark ruby red beer with character and contains an alcohol percentage of 10.5% VOL. Brewed in August, the beer rests a few months to reach an optimal balance. Three kinds of hops and six different kinds of herbs and spices define the rich taste of this Christmas beer. Top-class!”

We Say: If you are looking for an insanely tasty, extremely complex and head-heavy beer, this one is for you. The toffee brown head floating atop the dark brown body emits wafts of sweet grape, sassafras, anise and even hints of wood. This beer is so well balanced, you could easily forget you’re drinking alcohol … that is, until the kick of 10.5% ABV hits you when you stand up. Sweet with heavy notes of anise and spice, it quickly dries out your mouth leaving a taste reminiscent of french toast covered in maple syrup. It’s thick, it’s awesome and it would be great to share around a roaring fire.

Ridgeway Brewing

South Stoke, UK

They Say: “A dark flavour bomb of a beer. It backs such a punch that it is only available in 330 ml bottles.”

We Say: While it is definitely not a red ale as the label states, it is for sure a holiday beer. The light bready, almost caramel sweet nose gives way to an unexpectedly heavy body. A tasty mix of very sweet dried fruits including pear, apple and grape coats the mouth and is balanced by an almost grainy alcohol finish that leaves your lips smacking for more. If you are looking to be bad this holiday, check out Insanely Bad Elf.

Brasserie Dubuisson Frères sprl

Leuze-Pipaix, Belgium

They Say: [Editor’s Note - Scaldis is an alias for Bush] “ ... it not only has the luxurious qualities of traditional Bush de Noël—coppery colour, rich and powerful and yet balanced aromas—but also, due to its refermentation in the bottle, Bush de Noël Premium develops strong flavours and a slightly higher alcohol content (13% alc.vol). Brewed in a limited quantity, Bush de Noël Premium is an indispensable reference among the end of year beers.”

We Say: “A family Christmas on the farm” is how we describe this beer. A sweet must, similar to a farmhouse ale sour, quickly gives way to a tart, tight raspberry phenol. Its dark, heavy body is rich with a complex weaving of sweet raisins and tart dried fruit accented by warm alcohol carbonation. Finishing off with distinct lingering apricot and white pepper, we recommend going out and finding a bottle of this. That is, if we haven’t bought all of it first!

Brouwerij Huyghe
Melle, Belgium

They Say: “Colour and Sight: Chestnut amber. A fine, white, creamy and lacing foam. Scent: A complex entity of caramel malt, fruit, spices and the sweetness of the alcohol. Flavour: A strong presence of alcohol, very spicy, slightly bitter. The aftertaste is sweet, spicy and slightly bitter.”

We Say: A holiday staple, the Delirium Noël made its mark on our palates this tasting. From the caramel-colored body with a slightly off-white head comes strong currents of dark cherry and sweet fig. A good mixture of spices, bits of cherry with a sprinkling of nutmeg on top spreads quickly on the palate without sticking for too long. Ending with the sweet yet tangy hints of cranberry, Delirium Noël is must-add beer to your holiday collection. It is consistently one of our favorite beers of the year!
