Belgian Beer no.10: Pater Lieven, available as 4

Pater Lieven, brewed by the Van den Bossche brewery in the Flemish Ardennes, is available as light (blond), dark (brown), triple and as a Christmas beer. We gave the Pater Lieven bruin a try.

At 6,5° this is again a very strong Belgian beer, with hints of caramel, chocolate and pils. A very dark beer, Pater Lieven is ‘only’ been brewed since 1957. The brewery itself is over 100 years old, but it seems this particular beer has only been discovered and marketed later. However, it stands today as a very much sought after Belgian beer.

Currently, no recipe as it seems impossible to find one!
