Patersbier (for Saint Arnold) 6.7% ABV. The Trappist monks brew strong, mostly darker beers for the public but they make a beer just for the monks to drink that is lower in alcohol and usually lighter in color. Patersbier=beer for the fathers.
Our take on the style uses 100% Belgian pils malt, delicious Belgian beet sugar and French Aramis hops. Free rise fermentation using our house Belgian yeast.
Hoppier and drier than a typical blonde with a bright spicy yeast nose with some grassy hops. Malty yet very dry this will appeal to saison drinkers but without the phenolic yeast. Not really a beer for aging.
