Maredsous 10º

Duvel Moortgat

Belgium

Maredsous 10ยบ is a triple, and brewed in the Benedictine tradition. Now, while I think the Benedictines rule when it comes to theological discourse, I think the Trappists have them beat when it comes to brewing beer. I mean, who ever heard of a Benedictine brewery, am I right? Yeah, that's what I thought. But, this was still good nonetheless. It had a port wine-like background, which gave it a fruity character. I thought I detected plums and other fruit, but I was too distracted by watching the 80's classic Red Dawn, seeing Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen dispatch the Russian and Cuban armies with chilling efficiency.
