scoth (673) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours cloudy, medium-brown, with a puffy 2.5 finger beige head, good and lasting lacing. Smells of figs, caramel, pears, and hay. Medium, velvety, crisp body. Fruit flavor, much like the aroma, with some lemon. Very mild bitterness that balances all of the sweet malt about midway through, even less bitterness in the aftertaste. Well balanced.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Clovey date nose. Brown color with hints of amber, big head, nice lacing. Flavor was sweet pepper raisins, slight bitterness of orange pith. Medium bodied, big carbonation, finishes smooth. A solid beer, almost seems like a "light" version of Prior 8.

mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Pours a dark red brown with a thin tan head with decent lacing left on the glass. Aroma of malt, ripe plum, sugar and malt, very sweet smelling. Very candylike at first, powdered sugar with banana, yeast, malt and a slight sourness as it finishes. Light feel but carbonated, a bit fizzy. Good abbey but would rather have the 8 or 12 any day.

Pours murky orange with a foamy white head. Heavily carbonated. Aroma is of bananas, spice, malt, and yeast. Taste is very sweet fruit, mostly lemon and bananas with malt, spice, and yeast. Very earthy taste. Light, creamy mouthfeel.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Great looking beer. Pours a cloudy brown, with a nice frothy off-white head. Very little lacing, but all is foregiven. Light aroma of pit fruit and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is a light malt, roasted nuts, bread, with a touch of hop bittering. Palate is a bit fizzy and carbonated for my tastes. Overall a good basic Belgian ale

DrnkMcDermott (3048) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2008
I drink this Pater in remembrance of Father Dan OSullivan at St. Irenaeus, who married me to my wife and baptized our kids, who enjoyed any beer I brought him and with whom I shared my first DFH WWS. Pours deep brown with a big head that needed some time to settle. Nice smell of raisins and plums, with sweetness emanating from the glass. After that buildup, the taste actually runs a little light. Sweetness is NOT that heavy. Instead, like a modest ale, it simply delivers a nice blend of malt and some nearly German-type hop sharpness. Lot of chunky foam and lace sticking around the glass. Fruitiness not as apparent in the taste. This bottle, at least, slides in more like a basic fine ale. And thats just fine by me.

graham515 (537) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Pours a light brown with pinkish orange highlights and a big white head. Aroma is very fruity with some nice yeast spiciness. Flavor is softly sweet with some plum like fruit flavors and clove spice. Awesome mouthfeel and extremely drinkable.
