COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unique Belgian beer, top fermented and with bottle conditioning. This Easterbeer is a balanced equilibrium between sweet and bitter, between body and freshness. It has a malty and fruity nose with a thick, round froth. It is brewed in the rich tradition of the St. Bernardus Brewery, using only the very best malts, hops, and sugars. Our own yeast and the specific water of the brewery give our beers depth and strength. This Easterbeer lives up to our credo: St. Bernardus, bringing heavenly nectar within reach.

Bottle at ZBF 2013. Darker hazy brown coloured beer with some limited carbonation and a small off white head. Heavy yeasty ripe fruits, dades, caramel noted and alcoholic hinted aroma. Full creamy palate. FInish is again rather heavy, malty and fruity with clear alcoholic hints. Not bad.

ZBF Festival 2013 - Muddy brown appearance. Aroma has caramel and a little spice. Flavour is quite sweet and a bit spicy and peppery. A bit rough around the edges.

MrW (402) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2013
Sample of a 75 cl bottle Paasbier 2012 @ ZBF. Sweet aromas of dried, caramelised fruits, apricot, prunes. Dark copper, without a head. I guess the bottled was open for too long or it had been poured really bad. ícause this looked just like a coke that has been in the sun for too long (without the bees). Malty hay taste, caramel, dried fruits. Full mouthfeel with some fizz. Medium long finish with a taste of toast. Medium dry. I liked this beer, but it didnít look inviting at all.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 75cl bottle. Sample aged 1 year. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: dark beer, white non stable head. Nose: caramel, burned malts, very sweet, some chocolate. Taste: very full bodied complex beer. This reminds me of the Abt 12...

Pours a hazy and dark copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, fruit, sweetness and spices. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.

One of my favorite styles, but they didnít get this one right. I did like the blend of caramel, bread, dark fruit and candy, but ti was just little simple...missing something.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle @ home, special thanks to Reneís wife for picking this up 18 months ago. Fairly clear, reddish orange appearance with a tiny, off-white head that dissipates quickly. Strong candy sugar, rich cherry/berry fruity/estery, caramel aroma. Fairly balanced yet sweet fruity, lightly herbal, raspberry/cherry/plum, somewhat spicy flavor. Pretty good beer.
