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.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle @ home, special thanks to Rene’s 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.

Draft in a snifter. Deep amber poor, great retention. Caramel, with some dried fruit. Taste is much the same as nose. Meduim body. Sweet finish. It’s decent. Not a huge fan.

Skinnyviking (8630) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Hazy dark brown body. Pretty sweet caramel fruit roasted malt aroma. Flavor likewise astonishingly sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Fruit and caramel is the main characteristics. Low carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste. Alcohol level beautifully hidden by the sweetness of the beer.

26/05/2011 75cl bottle @ home - BB: 25/1/2016 (2011-230)

Little cloudy dark brown beer, beige creamy head, pretty stable and a bit adhesive. Aroma: anise, liquorice, some other spices, caramel. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: little sweet, lots of anise, spices and a little hop bitter, sweet caramel in the end. Aftertaste: sweet alcohol, some bitter. Nice beer but a bit young still. The other two bottles will sleep in the basement till next Easter.
