Het Anker Noel is fantastic and perhaps the best Belgian Christmas beer, at least for what makes it to the states. It ages wonderfully. I have had it with ten years of aging and it could have been aged longer.

sorry it was just too tempting a reply

Not sure if it’s supposed to be a Christmas beer, but Pipeworks Pastrami on Rye was amazing.

For sure St Feuillien Cuvée de Noël is really good. Unfortunately I’ve not tasted Herslev Stjernebryg :frowning_face:

I agree with you :beers:

I like these, but I con’t really think of a single one that stands out to me.

I remember liking Captain Lawrence Nor’ Easter Winter Warmer haven’t had in years though.

De Ranke Pere Noel is easily my favorite with recent batches of Prairie Christmas Bomb coming close.

I used to go here every year: http://www.kerstbierfestival.be/ENG/

They try to get every single Chritmas beer brewed in Belgium each year.

St Bernardus used to be the beer to beat, don’t remember any being better though.
