St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is the youngest descendant in the illustrious family of delicious Abbey Ales by Brewery St. Bernardus. This specialty beer of 10% alc. vol. is characterized by its deep dark colour, with a creamy, thick head and a full, almost velvety taste and a fruity nose. It's a seasonal ale, brewed annually for the holiday season. The long winter nights are perfect moments to savour this ale with or without friends and to enjoy its unique, complex taste and after-taste.
St Bernardus has a history which is connected to two Trappist breweries, Mont Des Cats (Cheese) and the infamous Westvleteren (Beer). Shortly after the second world war the Trappist monastry St Sixtus in Westvleteren was looking to commercialise their beers, in step St Bernardus.
