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.

Bottle from Santa. Danm I’m drinkin’ all my Santa beers with the quickness. Anyway, Beautful slighty hazy amber color. Sweet, malty fruity aroma. The taste was the same with smooth body and mild alcohol finish. Candy sugar and yeast are also detected but not over powering. Very good beer.

This one fits in the Belgian category well. It had the minimal tan head, with the yeasty smell and candy malt taste I associate with a Belgian. Not fancy, but good.

Bottle - Brown beer with a tan head. Sweet aroma with a big malt blast. The taste masks the alcohol very well. A bit sweet but overall very good.

Boutip (5833) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Tpaliga: Poured a cloudy deep brown color ale with a medium dirty white foamy head with average retention. Aroma of candi sugar, big strong malt and subtle yeast characteristic can be detected. Taste is quite sweet with lots of candi sugar and some dry figs characteristics. Body was definitely fuller then average with some well concealed alcohol. Very reminiscent of Gouden Carolus Keizer though probably not as complex.

Strykzone (6632) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Medium brown in color and a small head that does not last this is a nice looking beer as it pours. The carbonation mixes with the body to form a nice visual. Alcohol comes through prominently in the flavor and also gives a nice warming. There is plenty of sweet malt in the flavor. Sweetness is the most noticeable aspect of the beer. Some dark fruit can be found as well as caramel. This makes for a nice cold weather drinking beer because of the warming effect. Might be great after a ski outing.

Suprisingly good to me since I do not favor malt headvy brews. It is impressive but too sweet for me

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2006
12oz - 2006 - Aroma is cherry, raisin, yeast and a touch of chocolate. Pours brown-red with a small head and good lacing. Flavor is much stronger and better than aroma. Sweet raisins, malt, alcohol, and chocolate covered cherries. Creamy palate gives it an excellent finish. Let it warm up and get ready for a treat.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 12, 2006
Pours a clear deep rouge with a lacy off-white head. Aromas are mild, pruney, sweet candy, liqour. The body is med. but OH MY GOD sweet!. Flavors are completely dominated by this cloying sweetness. The 9% is hidden well under a blanket of sugar. Needs some dextrose or a higher attenuating yeast to dry this out and make it more pallatable.
