SN1987a goes boom: I'd be wary drinking anything offered to me by a cult.
born_yesterday: My GF took a trip to Belgium, and brought two of these (Westvleteren) back. They were pretty good, but not as good as a solid American domestic, like Miller Lite. I mean, we could have been drinking it at the wrong temperature--I got them as cold as I could in the freezer, but didn't want the bottles to shatter and ruin the beer. I'd be nice if they had a sticker or something that changed color when it was cold enough. Or maybe I need to drink it out of a glass next time, instead of straight from the bottle.
sgnilward: Belgian beer IS good, but doesn't merit the cult-like douchebaggery of the beer snobs. No style does.

farkeruk: It's one of the few Belgian trappist beers I've not tried. I can really recommend the Orval Tripel and Chimay's and Rochefort's beers (Rochefort 10 is a ludicrous 11.3%, but tastes great). Wonderful, wonderful.
Corvus: Why exactly do you find that ludicrous? Srong beligums are often in that range.

sgnilward: And by the way, all those hoppier than thou IPAs still suck.
NobleHam: She denounces the hype surrounding Westvleteren, arguing that the St. Bernardus ale she sells is every bit as delicious."You can buy a T-shirt with Lacoste on it, or a T-shirt at the supermarket," she said. "But it's basically the same T-shirt."Women...
TheTrashcanMan: The Rochefort 10 is much better, cheaper, and easier to get a hold of (probably on a shelf near you). Had the Westy 12 several times, including a 1997 vintage. Good stuff, but nothing beats the Rochefort 10.
