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.

"Poured a brown color with almost no head. Aroma was of spices and bananas. Flavor was of spices dark fruits, not sure where the banana aroma came from cause didn’t really get that in the flavor. Had an alcohol bit to it that i didn’t enjoy."

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Hazy deep amber body with a very small head. Fruity aroma with yeast and light spices. Some caramel and sugar. Flavor has a more pronounced fruity taste. Got cherries and raisins, hint of berries. I found the flavor and mouthfeel to be more appealing than the nose. Medium bodied. Still, something feels off or messed up. Not bad, but could be a lot better.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2006
I saw this in a liquor store in Lawrence Kansas and just thought I’d give it a try. 12 oz. Bottle. It pours murky light red with a quickly dissipating head and no lacing. The nose consists of raisin, plum and brown sugar. It has robust brown sugar, fruit, and raisin flavors. A little on the flat side but otherwise it is nice beer.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Dark multi brown. Frothy, off white head. Rich and roasty caramel malt, doughy yeast, dark fruits, candi sugar, cocoa powder, and subtle anise and alcohol. Full, smooth palate. Great brew after dinner with a mild cigar.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 Original Rating: Was expecting a dubbel for some reason up through the pour. Poured the standard red-brown of a dubbel but with an unimpressive head. The aroma shocked me, as bananas jumped out with spices and yeast (I’m not used to bananas in dark malted Belgian beers and was wondering where the dark fruits were). Flavor was rich and spicey with dark fruits and candi sugar coming through. Bananas only in the background of the flavor and the alcohol came through a bit sharp. I’ll bet this one is a fine aged beer to drink after a few years (this sampling was only 7 mos old from bottling). I shoulda stored it away for a little while. Impatient me. Re-rate, 6/07, courtesy beerded_one at SL: Amber orangey bornw color pour, good head and lacing. The aroma/flavor was caramel, toasty nuts, sweet malts, light spices, fruity concoction. A decent brew. Thanks, Paul, for this re-rate!

davidoc (113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 Poured medium amber with a small white head. Malty, fruity aroma and subtle fruit taste. Stronger than it tastes. A bit pricey, but cheaper than a flight to Belgium, and right up there in taste.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured hazy deep mahogany-copper with an average lasting foamy straw-coloured head. Sweet and spicy aroma, alcohol, apricot and and dusty dry butterscotch and light floral hops. Taste is mild, sweet, fruity, softly spicy, yeasty, a bit dry but sweet, the alcohol is sneaky, the finish is fast and wispy. Lightly sticky, slightly thin mouthfeel, not much carbonation. A pleasing attempt at BSA - a little sweet, needs to be livelier but strong and full of character.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with iwantalambic (thanks!). Bottled on date of 4/16/04. Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Lots of small floaters. Aromas of yeast, caramel, oak/wood, and nutty. Tastes of caramel, lighter yeast, toffee, and nuts. Very light alcohol finish.

Thanks to hopdog for breaking this open... Appears a dark amber with a small off white cap and small amounts of lacing around the glass. Smell is of caramel, nuts, wood, raisins, and plum. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with caramel being the standout of the bunch. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium bodied, slightly sweet, and hiding that 9% nicely.
