COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (29665) - 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.
