Exclusive Westvleteren 12 (XII) Limited Gift Box
Here is an exclusive
look at the Westvleteren XII Limited Gift Box. This gift box includes 2
unique drinking glasses stamped with "XII" at the bottom and 6 bottles of
Westvleteren 12 beer. The beer was brewed specially in the last months of
2011 for the renovation of the Sint-Sixtusabbey monastery in Westvleteren,
To acquire the beer, on November 2, 2011 one had to get a
coupon which was made available only in a few select Belgian print media titles.
You then had to take the coupon to a Colruyt store to redeem it. The cost
of one pack was 25 €. This is the first time the monastery has ever done a
promotion like this before.
The beer tastes slightly different than the regular Westvleteren
12, but I can't put my finger on the exact difference. Nevertheless, this
incredibly rare and hard to find beer is as delicious and exquisite as ever.
I was lucky enough to score two of these gift boxes as a Christmas
present from my Belgian Confidential Secretary. Thanks, friend!
I hope you enjoy these pictures of this "unicorn" of the beer world.
