What would you say is a fair price for a bottle of westy 12. I know how much it costs at source. But I know one day I am going to have to try it. But I have convinced myself it cant be as good as a Rochefort 8 or 10.

Rochefort 8 gives it a decent fight, Iíve paid 10 euros for one from Belgium in a Box, P&P can be prohibitive but spread accross a few bottles, its not to bad.

Not as good as Rochefort 10 in my humble opinion. I have a bottle 12 and a bunch of 8 if you want me to bring either along on the day?

I was in a bar in Venlo (NL) 5 weeks ago and they had both Westvleteren 6 and Westmalle Extra on the menu. BINGO ! However they didnít have them in the cellar

One "interesting" fact I learned a while back was that, however they were branded, nearly all the packaged pork scratchings in the UK were made by one producer in Wednesfield - or was it Wednesbury, I forget. That was a few years back so things may have changed a bit now that they are in vogue and artisanal versions abound.

My father in law always as a few packs open on his table in the pub for communal feeding. Bit of Black country tradition. I donít really like them but always end up eating them for some reason. I believe they are mostly made up the road from me in Wednesbury.
