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.

Virtually no head, body is brown. Aroma contains cookie, toasted malts, molasses, perfume, spruce, grape, raisin, plum, cherry, toffee, maple syrup, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and light acidic and finally sweet and light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Nothing very special, enjoyed it very much anyhow.
