Exclusive Westvleteren 12 (XII) Limited Gift Box

Here is an exclusive look at the Westvleteren XII Limited Gift Box.  This gift box includes 2 unique drinking glasses stamped with "XII" at the bottom and 6 bottles of Westvleteren 12 beer.  The beer was brewed specially in the last months of 2011 for the renovation of the Sint-Sixtusabbey monastery in Westvleteren, Belgium. 

To acquire the beer, on November 2, 2011 one had to get a coupon which was made available only in a few select Belgian print media titles.  You then had to take the coupon to a Colruyt store to redeem it.  The cost of one pack was 25 €.  This is the first time the monastery has ever done a promotion like this before. 

The beer tastes slightly different than the regular Westvleteren 12, but I can't put my finger on the exact difference.  Nevertheless, this incredibly rare and hard to find beer is as delicious and exquisite as ever. 

I was lucky enough to score two of these gift boxes as a Christmas present from my Belgian Confidential Secretary.  Thanks, friend! 

I hope you enjoy these pictures of this "unicorn" of the beer world.
