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. Pours a hazy amber with a big foamy head that is slightly off white. Splendid aroma - very fresh. Grass, roses, thyme, caramel and other herbs. Oily and round mouthfeel. Taste is slightly vinious, based on caramel. Elderberries, yeast, herbs, oak, toffee and dry flowery hops at the end. Stunning.

75 cl bottle. Amber color, offwhite head. Malty, grassy aroma, some vinous notes, fruity, apricot notes, bready and a bit yeasty. Hoppy flavor at first, fruity, some apple, some apricot, marcipan and apricot notes. I like this...

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber/brown colour with off-white head. The beer has a heavy feel to it. Nose is both fruity/flowery but also caramel and hops. The flavor is much of the same. Very good indeed.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2006
Hoppy aroma with hints of alcohol and apricots. Flavors is malty with a long dry finish and warming alcohol. Sparkly mouth feel and oily texture. This is a really well composed and balanced beer. Quite quaffable, if you turn the bottle, as to not look at the monkretard.

Bottle sampled on 6/23/07 shared by boboski: Pours a hazy dark copper mahogany with an airy well-lacing frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet doughy bready malt with a touch of light fruity esters. Body starts fairly earthy and doughy caramely sweet with some biscuity malt. Smooth, nicely balanced and enjoyable Belgian strong ale.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottled, 75cl corked. Hazy, sparkling, dark ruby, with a massive, beige head leaving nice lacings The head diminishes rather quickly, but doesn’t disappear. Cellar, spices, hops, malt, sweetness, hints of alcohol and dried fruits in the aroma, but it is a bit weak. Nice flavor, but maybe a bit weak. Spices, candi-sugar, caramel, hops and some dried fruits in the flavor. Full-bodied, and with a finish with hops, spices and lasting, warming alcohol. A nice beer it is, but I expected a bit more complexity. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. (070408)

Bottle, 75cl corked. A hazy amber beer with a nice, dense beige head. Cellar and dried fruits in the sweetish and vinous nose. Complex flavor too, well blended and touch to disintegrate. Cellar, dried fruits, sweetness and some bitterness are present. Some alcohol too. Full-bodied, and with a lasting finish. Really pleasant. (080926)
