A deep red beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is sweet and lightly fruity. The flavor is also sweet - actually very sweet which makes it too much halfway thru. The flavor contains notes of fruit and caramel.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 (Bottled 25 cl) Originally Van den Bossche only made one "Pater Lieven" called just that - and this is it. 5,7% ABV. Darkisk with a rather atypical light body with some slightly tart notes. Dry and not very bitter - reminds me more of a dark, Danish lager. But very refreshing indeed. 070594

Bottled. Dark brown opaque colour with broiwn big head. Aroma is toffee, caramellish malts with slight roasted hints. Some yeast also, which is a bit disturbing. Flavour is yeasty, roasted malts, caramel and candy sugary. The finish has a big sugary peak. Aftertaste is maily toffee and roasted caramel malts. Pleasant brew, though the yeast is a bit interfering in this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Dark ruby, creamy head. Fruity aroma of pineapple and mashed apples. Really sweet up front with medium body, a light touch of roasty malt and notes of coffee. High carbonation contributes to a light, airy mouthfeel, soothened by gentle chewu malt character. Spun sugar dominates the finish along with caramel. Lacks a little bit in flavour intensity for such a sweet and big beer.
