COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with loads of malt and Belgian yeast, Pere Jacques is a wonderfully fruity, malty ale. Pere Jacques’ complex flavors stand shoulder to shoulder with the Belgian Dubbels enjoyed in the world’s finest beer bars. At the dining table it’s the perfect alternative to a glass of vintage port.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Play-do, fruit cake , sweat, fusels, and sweet breads and earthy clay make up the confusing aroma. Murky oranage/red brown in color with a pretender of a belgian head that is a finger thick, tan and lasting. Fore is lightly spiced caramel and rum cake and followed by stewed dates and syrup laced sweet bread. has some positive notes and some less than stellar asspects. The carbonation is low and that makes it feel syrupy. Some of the flavor notes are there, but it lacks the nuance of a many belgians which tease you with a parade of intermingling flavors. This is fairly concnetrated (good) but narrow and predicatble (bad) though in the end what is there tastes good so it can’t be disliked.

12oz Bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a very small head. A very nice and sweat aroma. I can pick-up the Alcohol but not to strong. A very good tast.

BrewDad (5117) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2006
[Bottle - Johns market] Deep rich brown color with a light brown head. The beer has been sitting for over a year in my beer cellar. Has a deep carmel and fruity nose and the flavor was also as rich. This was a truly nice belgian to drink.

doublebock (527) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Auburn cloudy appearance. Tastes like a belgian red with malty overtone. Tastes more like a belgian red than almost any other american "belgian style" beer I’ve had.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Found this one bottled at Binny’s Oktoberfest in St. Charles, Illinois. A nice taste treat. Light copper pour with a light tan head, nose of caramel candies and cherry, lots of baked bread, plum, apple and orange with a strong alcoholic finish. Pretty good.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma of sugary raisens and a whiff of alchohol. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation., but lacks the earthy texture that the imported belgians have. Flavor is sweet, with notes of raisens, hazelnut, cherry, and maple. Some peat and complimentary alcohol comes out on the finish, which is a tad sticky. Overall, very enjoyable. Glad I bought 4. From the first place I always hit when I go back to visit my old stomping grounds in Chicago.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a medium copper with a 1 inch head that dissipated slowly. The aroma was sweet. Cherries, chocolate, sweet fruits, and belgian yeasts. The flavor was very complex. Many different malts, and flavors come bursting through this one. Intense fruits, yeast, and a little of the alcohol come through. Not much left on the palate, as it had a very clean finish. Excellent rendition.

Sample from a bottle at Binny’s "Fall Festival of BEERS." Mild coppery color, sweet nose and flavor. Very complex, the malts hit you withy a mix of bready and baked flavors, but not overpowering. It’s a different beer, and despite the price, is worth it once in a while.
