From JL Beers West Fargo:

The yuletide spirit is strong here at JL Beers West Fargo, and to help spread the holiday cheer, we give you the gift of beer! We’ve gotten our hands on some of the best Belgian beer in the world, and figured it was only right to share with it you this Christmas.
In addition to a fantastic lineup, we’ll be throwing an ugly Christmas sweater contest! Prizes to the best ugly sweaters!

Our Christmas in Belgian lineup includes:
-St. Bernadus Christmas Ale: This Beer offers a spicy flavor profile exuding the tastes of warming alcohol, molasses, apricots, licorice and marzipan that are in perfect balance. ABV 10%
-St. Bernardus Prior 8: Traditional Abbey Dubbel that finds the perfect balance among sweet, bitter and malty tastes with smooth, creamy richness and malt-fruit complexity reminiscent of coconut. ABV 8%
-Brasserie Caracole Nostradamus: A nicely drinkable Belgian Dark Strong Ale with a medium body and rich warmth boasting sweet aromas and flavors of ripe, dark fruits, raisins and spice. ABV 9%
-Brasserie De L’abbaye Du Val-Dieu Triple: A fine Belgian Triple with beautiful balance of sweet, sour and bitter; an underlying, subtle bitterness pairs well with fruity aromas of citrus and hints of spices. ABV 9%
-Duchesse de Bourgogne: Tart, sweet and refreshing with a hint of green apple and passion fruit. Brewed in the Flanders tradition of sour ales, Duchesse is a standard for the style. ABV 6%
