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.

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2009
Chocolate brown, frothy non-homogenous head which quickly disappear. Fruity, slight (nice) alcohol smell. medium-full body, fizzy but not fresh. Balanced towards the alcohol rather than hop. Alcohol warmth. Ok for an easter brew. Not fantastic. The medium-full body, alcohol and fizzyness is not an ideal match. To heavy and alcoholic in the long run. Purchased in SuperBrugsen.

NosirIwont (2309) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - APR 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy chestnut brown with a big, dense off-white/beige head. Malty, dusty and sweet aroma with notes of nuts. Feels pretty stingy, probably from too much carbonation, which felt annoying and interfered with the aroma. Flavour is (too) sweet; molasses and malt mixed with notes of nuts. Faint notes of plastic. Prunes? Slightly metallic as it warms. Feels a bit cloying. Slightly bitter finish with remote notes of yeast. A bit fruity. Too much carbonation. A decent, if somewhat standard, beer, but was too cloying. 11-04-09.
