Now this is going to be a really dumb question, but I'm just so paranoid about screwing up my Westvleteren 12, I figured I'd ask. It says to store it between 12-18C (53.6-64.4F) and I've read that your not supposed to refrigerate it. Now for the dumb question, if I have a beverage center (pretty much a mini fridge) and I have it set for 54F is it ok to store the Westvleteren 12 in the refrigerator? The refrigerator wouldn't have any kind of adverse affect on it right. Sorry for my paranoia.

If it is set to the correct temperature, it will be fine.

We sat it down with Santa's Butt, St Bernardis Abt 12 and Rochfort 10 this afternoon. It was a good progression of flavors in the order stated, with Westy 12 having been bottled this year. Moving from one's palette of neutral to surprise, we saw that Vleteren was in the medium-to-high range. A deeper and richer taste, with the formers seeming too neutral, and the latter seeming off the end and boozy.

The Bernardis was most fluffy, yet lacking the deeper taste of Vleteren.

Well done Bernardis and Santa's Butt ! And Rochfort 10 - not as close in taste, yet very enjoyable.

No special temp controls here. We just chilled and tasted.

Am I the only one that really *does not* enjoy Westy 12? I just had a bottle and it tasted like a hot mess of alcohol, wine, prunes, and alcohol! I let it warm up for a few minutes in the glass after the bottle was in the fridge, and the beer did change more as it warned more towards the end of the drink but sheesh... Well I am glad they got a new roof. Now I can strike the Westy clone from my on deck list...

Ebay just wiped the 8 or so listings for this beer at an average of $550.00 per six pack. Go Capitalism! No bailouts here people. Just some damn munks with a new roof who sold out. LOL

I'm not surprised. They've done it before with other beers.

I have no idea what you mean. I've read it a couple times. Are you saying that "munks" are selling beer on ebay?
