Just as it does each year, Brasserie St-Feuillien (Le Roeulx, Belgium) is celebrating the Holiday Season with the Limited Release of its Cuvée de Noël.
Crafted to embody the holiday spirit, Cuvée de Noël is a “dark brown, rich and full-bodied” Belgian Strong Dark Ale that is meant to be “[savored] and [shared] with friends.” At 9% ABV, this warming, Seasonal offering showcases aromatics enhanced by herbs and spices and a “full-bodied . . . smoothness that is the result of the synergy of caramelized malts, carefully controlled fermentation and long cold storage.” To round off the entire experience, a “very subtle” bitter note emerges as “the dominant flavor in this harmonious ale [to strike] a perfect balance between all the different ingredients.”
Cuvée de Noël is pouring now and will be available throughout the 2017 Holiday Season. If you are in the United States and wish to seek out this special Holiday Ale, you can find this Limited release available as a draft-only offering at fine beer establishments located throughout the country.
