The drinkers in Belgium must really be into celebrating the holidays: There is certainly no shortage of quality hoilday brews coming out of this country. The Anker Brewery is the western region of Belgium brews one of the best of all. Some wonderfully potent vinous notes in both the aroma and the taste make the character of this beer intricate beyond description. There is a nuttiness and a refreshing spiciness as well as a robust head that doesn't go away until the last sip. This brewery has been crafting beer since the mid-14th century, which clearly gave it just enough time to perfect its practice.
