snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Great appearance, aroma is quite subdued. Very noticeable yeast character (not a bad thing at all) but othewise a well done beer, if not especially notable.

After having enjoyed so many bottles of St. Bernie Prior and Abbot over the past several years, I was terribly happy finally to have found a few bottles of this. The Pater is clearly in the same tradition as the other two: as soon as you pour it you will instantly recall the familiar and wonderful St. Bernardus aroma of hazelnutty chocolate. The flavor is the same as the big brothers, just scaled down here. It’s fun to have another take on the classic St. Bernardus flavor, but it’s tough to feel other than that ther is something missing in this: it doesn’t have that same remarkable balance of the Prior. Nor does it really make the most of its smaller frame. IT’s like looking at a guy whose suit is a bit too big. Or "everything you want in a beer, and less".

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Dark cloudy auburn colour with a foamy tan head. The nose is yeasty and spicey with hints of fruit, pepper, alcohol - nice and fresh smelling. The body is malty with a fair amount of yeast. Fruity with a defenite alcohol presence.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - DEC 14, 2005
warm fruity and refreshing with a light malt and hop fullness to ballance things out. a little too sweet for my liking but still very good. the alcohol is subdued like in most light belgins.

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2005
[Bottle, 33cl, Fresh, exp: 09-05-08, 14c] Rich and hazy brown sugar color. Good white head that diminish to a thin film, leaving some laces. Aroma is dominated by the brown sugar but traces of pale malt + fruits. Taste is very sweet, nice but simple. I should leave my other bottles age more.

Dark Red Coloring with Sandy Head. Dark Bread Taste, Bread Dough, Dry Fruits, Heavy Mouthfeel....Some Alcohol Warming Works its Way up and Ends with a Dry Bitter Finish. Solidly a Great Tasting Belgian.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2005

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Very fruity yeasty aroma. Weird, not unpleasant smells that remind me of cleaning products. Hazy brown with a loose head. Tart and fruity flavor with some earthy fig and cherry. Finishes moderately dry. Spritzy mouth feel.

Beige creamy full lasting head. Mahogany color. Aroma is moderately fruity with vinous, yeasty notes. Flavor is fruity with raisins, chocolate, banana and light caramel tones, ending in a caramelly long finish. Medium to full bodied.
