Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops
Brewed with roasted malt, hence its deep dark reddish colour. It is a mellow, dark, top-fermented beer, refermented and matured in the bottle to obtain a lively, bubbly beer with a rich head

Bottle. pours a cloudy dark brown with a fat off white heads that surrenders like the French. alcohol and apple are dominant in the nose. very tart taste of fruit yeast dough and assorted spices. I am going to pick up a few of these to cellar to get a better handle on but i have to go with what i have at this point. this is very warming. finish is a sweet fruit and pepper with a solid malt backbone. I look forward to experiencing the aged versions of this.

A very well-made beer. Amazing pour with thick, long lasting head. Lacing consistent and continuous with aromas of yeast and fruit. Very smooth with a slightly smoky/chocolate finish.

Red/brown colour with a great head, lively on the tongue, cloudy looking. Yeast and sour fruit aroma. Fruity sweet raisin tasting with chocolate. Pretty nice.

Dry finish with subdued fruit. Some maltiness, no real kick. You can call it smooth.

marcus (7477) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 22, 2004
This beer has a huge head, so pour slowly (takes about 5 min.) The nose is typically brown ale and the flavor is chocolate (not a sour brown). The flavor is rather bland at refrigerator temperature, but becomes more full as the beer warms. Pair with Corsendonk Agnus (abbey pale ale) for a chocolate/ vanilla experience. Goes well with a cigar, if you are so inclined.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Reddish/brown color with a big fluffy tan head. Aroma of raisins, prunes and dark chocolate. Sweet flavor of raisins on first taste, turning slightly tart, then finishing dry.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Pours a nice rusty and muddy colored body with an enormous rocky tan head. The aroma is rather biscuity and tart. Light notes of basaltic vinegar and chocolate ice cream are rather pungent. I definitely pull some big suggestions of warm liquid chocolate poured over an apple… big toasty notes, and rather nutty… with hints of almond and Brazilian nuts. The finish suggests a tart doughy-ness, pretty yeasty and slightly citric…it’s like a sour orange zest or something…. hints of ground black pepper.

I’m going to have to re-rate this one… it taste a little off to me… maybe it became light-struck in the store?
Ok, well after reading and judging by the majority response around here… it sounds like the beer is supposed to be this tart and vinous. No re-rate necessary! It's just too sour for me~

Bottle into tulip glass; purchased at Discount Licquor (Milwaukee). Enjoyable beer, but not elite. The smell was a nice yeasty, malty, somewhat acidic waft. Pouring a murky/hazy orange brown with a huge beige and rocky head with nice lacing, this looked appetizing. It didn’t disappoint: sour apple, caramel, spice (mint and oregano). Soft to active carbonation was almost but not quite too much, and it was medium to full bodied.
