Tasting a St Bernardus Abt 12

March 9, 2017

St Bernardus Abt 12

I had forgotten how highly carbonated this beer was. Pour it in a glass and the show is on: you see bubbles go up for a moment, then the whole thing settles down to let you enjoy the view. The thick, clouded color of the brew is conductive to long, deep meditation. It looks like some magnificent murky waters you might drown into. Like some river on a reddish riverbed. You expect a crocodile to come out of it any second. All that before you take the first sip. That’s Belgian beer for you.
