St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is an abbey-style ale that pours dark reddish brown with a frothy beige head and medium carbonation.

Top fermented and bottle conditioned, the brew boasts aromas of sweet caramel, dark fruits, raisin, cinnamon, clove, chocolate, bread and notes of anise.

Taste follows a similar profile and also includes sweet apricot, banana, licorice, marzipan, and molasses, some peppery spice and a slight hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is creamy and light to medium bodied; the 10.0% ABV is well hidden but warming; and the finish is long, bittersweet and dry.

Food Pairings

Pair with pizza, any meat and cheese plate or winter stew, a hearty creamy soup, honey ham, duck, turkey, and many desserts especially bread pudding. Serve at 45 - 50 degrees F.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is a must have for all who enjoy the St. Bernardus beers - specifically the Abt. 12. The signature yeast bouquet alone brings us back to when we enjoyed the St. Bernardus beers when they were called St. Sixtus back in the mid to late 80s. It was always a cherished moment when we could enjoy their beer. It is in our top 25 beers of all time, and makes Christmas time one of our favorite beer seasons of the year. This beer would age extremely well - we guesstimate up to 5-7 years. The spice and yeast flavors would become more complex and soft. The drinkability would increase even more so. It is a seasonal release, so get it while you can. Seek this one out for sure! For more, visit our BREWVIEW ON ST.
