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.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Cloudy, medium brown appearance with a small head that faded so fast I couldn’t tell the color. Yeasty aroma with a nose that resembled mildly spiced banana bread. Well carbonated, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Malty, with an over the top sweetness and an underpinning of ripe fruit that lingers through to the finish. At 9%, the alcohol is well hidden.

flemdawg (524) - Naples, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Murky reddish brown body with a thin off white head. Apples and pears in the aroma, with some banana carmels, and bread. Banana is most evident in the taste, but alcohol is there too. Malts, and apples make an apperance too. Tasty.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Opaque muddy orange-brown with a bouncy foamy head. Blowtorch of a cooked sugary aroma ... this is intimidating! Pow ... bigtime alcohol is clearly evident ... cooked, um ... banana! Yes, that’s it (thanks, previous rater). At first, this is overpowering, but as it breathes a bit and warms up, it settles into a beautiful concoction ... smooth and sweet and not as overpowering as the first impression wants to indicate. Decent.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Bottle: Cloudy amber/brown body with a small creamy, thick tan head. Aroma caramel, bread, yeast, chocolate cake, banana, a hint of alcohol and fruity/citrus hops towards the finish. Medium bodied, medium spritzy carbonation - enough that the tiny bubbles can be felt, but never dominates your palate. Taste is chocolate-covered bananas (though not very sweet), honey, malt, bread, toffee, slight bubble gum/candi sugar flavor, and a bit of spicy/grassy hops as it warms.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Cloudy orange - brown color with floating bits. The aroma is a mix of sweet caramel, alcohol, and hops. Smooth with a mild creaminess. Light to medium bodied. A nice balance of sweet caramel, malt, and hop flavors that are unfortunately overwhelmed by a strong prescence of alcolhol.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Hazy orange / brown in color. Some sediment floating around. Head is tan and small, about the size of a quarter, floating in the center of the trappist glass. Aroma is damn delicious - chocolatey, bananas, ginger, spice cake and some wafts of alcohol. Flavor is chocolatey, sweet, ripe bananas and a dash of coffee. Toffee, caramel and black licorice characteristics evolve from the choice of malts. Body seemed initially thin, but it grew on me. Leaves a margarine-like coating on the palate. High carbonation up front, but it’s succinct and well thought out. Finishes like a midnight snack. Very good beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2011 This is the first beer that I have tried from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy chestnut color with a medium sized soapy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma is sweet caramel, date and plum. The flavor is very sweet with sugary caramel, molasses, date, raisin and wood. Long finish with lingering date and caramel. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Turbid rusty brown, thin off white creamy head. Complex nose of spiced dried plum and cherry, some caramel, with hints of brown sugar sprinkled throughout. The flavor was well balanced, spicy, with lots of Belgian yeasty fruity overtones. 9% was well hidden. Full bodied, lively carbonation, bittersweet, drying, spiced dark fruit finish. I hope this is an indication of what I’ll be drinking at the Clybourn location on May 20th. Great representation of the Abbey style and highly recommended...

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Pours with an amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma and flavor are sweet and flowery wtih a slight citrus note and some candy sugar. Medium bodied and smooth yet slightly tingly.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours a hazy orangish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma of brown sugar sweetness, apple, and alcohol. Sweet flavor, yeast with and spicy finish. Medium body.
