There is not much depth to this beer. It is pleasant in a subtle way, almost the flavor of a brown ale when moving through the mouth. There is not much carbonation to overpower the flavor either. NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brown opaque color with a nice, fluffy, tan head that hangs around for a while. Nice balance b/w fruitiness and bread like flavors. Medium-heavily bodied. Good stuff. kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy brown pour with a nice thick frothy off white head. Aroma of plums, bananas, yeast and malt. Taste of malt, brown sugar, dark fruit and a hint of caramel. Medium body, nice even finish. probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2009
330 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Bigmmartin (620) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2009
App.: Cloudy, deep copper, decent tan foam.
Aroma: Yeast, light earthy funk, some minty herbals, some light molasses, brown sugar, candi sugar, banana and bubble gum esters, much like a dunkel Weizen me thinks, cereal.
Palate: Medium body and fairly full effervescence.
Flav.: Much like the nose and very much like a dunkel Weizen with some nice malts, lots of esters, light minty herbals and plenty of yeast/brad dough.
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Bottle. Brownish orange color with a typical big foamy head. Sweet aroma of yeast and malt. Nice solid flavor of fruit, malt, and yeast. Better than most Belgian Ales I’ve tried. Excellent smooth palate with soft carbonation. A good representation of the St. Bernardus brews.

Another solid offering from St. Bernard, the monk pours a light orange color with a big, pillowy head. A nice cornucopia of aromas fills the nostrils with smells of raisins, yeast, and a noticeable malt texture. The tastes are as if the smell was the beer itself, just an overall well rounded brew.

been sruprised for a while that I hadn’t rated this then I realized I couldn’t find it anywhere in SD. Picked this up yesterday while on a beer run with my brother at Chevy Chase. bottle gusher at roomish temp. Pours deep orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet and fruity and richly malty. Taste is sweet and fruity with a dubbel like quality. Tasty. jhliesen (836) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle-Twas my Easter dinner beer. A cloudy, ruby color brew with a small head and not much lacing. The beer was plenty carbonated. The aroma was mostly sour fruit with some wheat aroma. The taste was fruity and hoppy with a touch of wheat. Old rating. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2009
Quite nice. Not a st. bernardus 8 or abt. 12, mind you, but very good. Dark brown with a bubble gum aroma and a sharp yeastiness to it. carruthm (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2009
Dark copper, auburn brown ish color with a playfully large head. Aroma is highly wheats and breads. It’s enjoyable but does more to highlight how good the 12 is than stand on its own.
