In researching for an article about our upcoming tour to St. Bernardus my wife was surprised to learn that although Westvleteren is now using Westmalle’s yeast, St. Bernardus is apparently still brewing the original Westvleteren recipe with Westvleteren yeast… So she came to think that if she’s lovin’ a Westy, is it really a Westy? or is St Bernardus the real Westy? Confusing, for sure. So all we could do was pull out a bottle of each of them…which was conveniently located in our Coke Machine, and do a blind tasting. Life is rough sometimes, but we were willing to make the sacrifice in order to provide you, our readers and beer voyagers, with enlightenment.
