Brewers: De Dolle Brouwers
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
Flemish for "silent night," this 12 percent Belgian ale is brewed with candy sugar and then American Nugget hops to balance the sweetness. The resulting beer ranges from earthy orange peel to fresh pastry. But to best appreciate this beer, buy a few bottles to age and discover how it develops over the years. In 2013, De Dolle tasted beers from as far back as 2000 and claimed that none of the vintages had showed signs of deteriorating.
