Westvleteren to release cask beer in UK

In a move that's rocked the beer world, revered Trappist brewers Westvleteren have announced that they're producing a new brew - exclusively for the UK cask market.

The monks are renowned for their high quality beers which are usually hard to obtain; their beer isn't sold commercially for profit. However, with the abbey's expansion plans finally approved (to house the Gareth Prescott Institute of Crystal Malt Research), the abbey decided that only a special cask beer could generate the necessary funds.

Brewed today only and then matured for a year, the high-ABV Double Tripel Smoked Hefe Porter is said to offer rich candied toffee flavours, topped with preserved fruit aromas with just a hint of anchovy.

Due for release exclusively in J D Wetherspoons pubs on April 1st next year, Tim Martin could neither confirm nor deny that he'd already commissioned a Flemish translation of 'coming soon' for the commemorative pumpclips.
