One of my greatest-ever New Year's Eve celebrations was a Belgian beer tasting at the Brooklyn Brewery (including a magnum of Chimay Grand Reserve at Midnight), and since that time I've always had a soft spot for the Belgian-styled beers.
Quebec's Unibroue is a unique "micro-brewery" in North America, perhaps the first and certainly one of the few that have adopted Belgian, not British or German, beermaking traditions. They even sell some of their beers in 750mL bottles, sealed with a cork. Tonight's "Don de Dieu" is a beer made in the style of the Trappist beers, and wears the label "Triple". Yeasty wet barley and scotch whiskey on the nose, sweet and creamy on the palate. An incredibly soft mousse, a beautiful mouthfeel, and a delicious hint of bitterness, but it quickly vanishes on the palate. A great Belgian imitation and certainly easier to find (and cheaper) locally than the Belgian stuff.
cork. 9% alcohol
Price: C$4.50 (750 mL)
Note: if you are a pilsener/lager fan and have never tried these Trappist-styled beers, they are VERY different from anything you have ever tasted - you will probably retch and pour the rest down the sink the first time, but keep at it and I think you will grow to like these.
