COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very easy drinking beer based on the traditional Belgian "Patersbier", which means "Father’s beer" in Dutch. Traditionally brewed by Trappist monks for their own consumption during meals (or when no one was looking). Light, refreshing. Think of it as a monk’s table beer. Simple recipe of German Pilsner malt, German acidulated malt, and saaz hops.

16 oz can from 8/8/17 tried today and is fresh enough to make me take notice. Pours a hazy light golden color with tight small white head and hardly any lacing. Aroma has lots of Belgian yeast, floral scents, light spices. Taste is tart and refreshing with slight carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. I've never had anything that tastes quite like this one, and will gladly try this again. It would have been perfect for a hot summer day, and is still delightful on a cold rainy November day.

Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices and dryish malts. The flavor is vanilla, Belgian yeast, mild fruit/lemons, malts and a mix of mild sweetness and tart in the finish.

Can from Chicago. Pours a very pale yellow with a white head. Plenty of grain and some flavour of yeast, but not pronounced enough to be really distinctive. Light and refreshing, so it would be very suitable for summer drinking. A nice beer, but could do with having morre character.

Taster at Standard Market. Bit of a sweet, but brett-y smell. Pale Pilsener color as claimed. This is a style that can be hard to get excited about when done straight up. It is a solid pale Belgian, though. Bit of tart and yeast comes back at the finish.

This is okay bit uninteresting. It’s pretty light and nice bit nothing really grabs you. It’s a little bit fruity but lacks a really vibrant yeast character. Still, no real off flavors and very drinkable so good enough for me.

Very lightly clouded, pale golden yellow. Lots of grain, light citrus. Lightly bitter, some light honey sweetness. Lightly chewy, lighter body. Medium finish. Good.

From 16 oz can in a large snifter. Spicy, dry, crisp. light grain flavor. Appropriately styled but completely unremarkable Belgian style ale.
