In the small village of Meer, north of the city of Antwerp, there used to be an abbey which was famous for its beer named St. Paul. During the French Revolution, the abbey was destroyed and so it was said-one father named Paul, rescued the secret recipes to brew the abbey beer and trust them onto the local Sterkens family, at that time a renowned brewer family. The Sterkens family had been brewing beer since 1654, and their St. Paul abbey beer is still brewed today, respectfully according to the centuries old tradition.

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2004
Quick disipation of the head. What was there was short and white (all of 3 seconds). Deep red wine colour. Citric and pithy, sourness. Notes of molases, fruit and a good punch of yeast.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Clear light chestnut color with a smaller cream colored head. Lots of caramel and light fruit in the nose. Light chocolate and sweet malt flavors. Quite simple and drinkable. But then again just plain simple. Somewhat like a american brown with a bit more yeast profile.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Nice foamy head, amber red body. Aroma is quite heavy, roasted malt and sugar. Flavor is sweet malt, brown sugar, nut and alcohol. Bitter/dry finish. OK, but nothing more.

Ungstrup (30790) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2004
An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is primarily sweet with some sour notes - is it the yeast? The flavor is very thin, but what is there is sweet malty with notes of caramel and bread with hints of the alcohol.

Smooth malty aroma and start. Roasted middle and roasted caramel and pepper in finish. Special palate. Hard to describe. Some burned notes. Toast.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2003
A keeper of a bottle. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine sized bubbles that completely dissipated. The body contained lively carbonation and a transparent body with a brown hue. The nose was malty, caramel and hops. The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly acidic, some bitter notes, and caramel. The mouthfeel was dry and smooth and this was a light-medium bodied beer. This beer had good lacing on the sides of my glass.

thedm (5163) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Thia brew poured from a beautiful white with black speckles ceramic bottle create a small head of mostly diminished off-white colored finely sized bubbles that left behind a transparent uncarbonated brwon colored body and a good lace. The aroma was that of a nice mild brown malt and dough while the mouthfeel was tingly and vinuous yet smoothened in the finish. The flavor was warming with notes of brown malt and mild vinuous sweet dough.
