I know it’s hard to get but I’ve had a neighbor order it on line from the brewery twice in the last year. I have no idea what she paid but she has been generous in sharing. Westy 12 is delicious but did not move the moon and stars for me.

The idea of it is, for me at least, that Westvleteren 12 becomes less unique, less mysterious, less of everything in fact when you have sampled other similar beers by the other Trappist breweries and St. Bernardus.
If you are a new convert to the big, dark belgian ales, and Westvleteren 12 is one of the first you have, it is likely to leave a very indelible mark on you. For me, it was underwhelming in light of other beers I find much better and in light of the hype and mystique around it.
It is, however, a very good entry in the Trappist roster.
