Advent day 12 - catching up.


360/2960) Home:  Tripel Belgian Golden Ale by Boxing Rock Brewing Company Ltd. of Nova Scotia:  **1/2;  9.2%; sweet, fruity nose; uncommonly sweet for a tripel with fruity flavours, delicious;

The 13th installment of the Advent calendar - who would have guessed such a fine Belgian style Tripel could have come from Nova Scotia?

Taking advantage of the fact that people were around on a Saturday to share these with I have caught up to day 14.
