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

This had a lot of citrus and astringent flavors mixed in with the somewhat fruity malt - reminded me of a carbonated wine in a way. Finish was dry but had some sourness to it. Deep ruby brown with off white head and nice lacing.

I really liked this beer. My first observation was the sweet, fuity, almost wine like nose. Then when I poured it the dark thick sponge like head, and lastly the sweet, smooth, fruity, with a hint of choclate flavor. Definintly the best beer I've so far this year.

This brown ale has amber glints and a thick, foamy white head. The nose is citrusy (lemons) with blood/copper and underripe strawberry notes. The palate is very bubbly, almost too much so with a slightly astringent lemony characteristic and very little malt. The finish is lgithly astringent, coppery and mildly spicy.

Draught, Don Quiotte, Bruges. I loved this beer, a nice deep brown with a chunky white head. Fruity in character with malt and hops both evident. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

A superb ale from a great brewer. Lots of carbonation, and full bodied. Great aroma. Enjoyed very much.

Very fruity (especially apples) and very carbonated. Full, cloudy body and full, frothy head. Fairly sweet finish with a touch of malts and roastiness.

KA-POP! I think the cork put a dent in my ceiling. This has and cloudy, rusty appearance, with a nice head of medium-sized white bubbles. Fruity, yeasty, sweet aroma. The flavor is tart up front, but mellows into a slight malty sweetness, with notes of raisins, plums, and perhaps cherries. There is a slight, port-like character to it as well. This is like a cross between Westy 8 and Trois Pistoles, but with a little less maltiness and a lot more TANG!

Super carbonated, slighlty cloudy brown. Bubbly. Slightly sour smell accompanied by a similar taste. Some hints of chocolate and roast but only in the background. Finish is slightly spicy with a hint of clove. Not my fav. style.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Be careful when you open it. The cork could put someone's eye out, and we don't want that, do we? Extremely carbonated, almost a detrement. Huge sturdy head. Coke brown color. Floral smell and initial taste, note af chocolate and plums. Very mild hop bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 The cork pops with the authority of champagne. Pours deep ruby/mahogany with a huge frothy tan head and tiny bubbles dancing to the surface. A little spice in the nose. Flavor: Starts champange like and spicy and the finish dry and a little tart. You can feel the alcohol warm your face.
