Belgian Beer no.305: St. Bernardus Pater 6

We tried the St. Bernardus Abt 12 already. It was time for the Pater 6.

A dark beer, almost red, with a very specific taste. There is enough fruit, but also hops to make it a 'grown up' beer. Some really love it!

At 6.7% very easy to drink.

Belgian Beer no.304: Poperings Hommelbier

I was sure we had reviewed this beer long time ago. But seems not. It's such a usual beer, that I am surprised we missed it.

The Poperings Hommebier. Brewed by the same people as Belgian Beer no.40.

Three varieties of hops are used in this beer. Fermentation in the bottle.
Due to the hops it does have a very rich taste to it. At 7.5% a fairly heavy beer as well.

A nice change from the usual beers.

Belgian Beer no.53, no.42 and no.303: Timmermans Beers

One tasted already.
The other as well.
The other Timmermans Kriek. Very fruity, very cherry, very Kriek.

(And yes, you've guessed it these are all beers tasted still in 2008 - I have a backlog of about 50 beers to go through ...)

Belgian Beer no.302: 'n Maurootje

This review comes from William Roelens, a Belgian beer blogger who also brews his own beer. The 'N Maurootje.

Life being life, I just read his wife passed away. My sincere condolences.

Below, his own beer review:
A dark blond beer with a white fine full.
The nose is spicy and hoppy.
Light predominating flavour of junipers
Also complete deeply a fragrant bread aroma.
The taste is bitter hopps.
Leading spicy
A good and nicely dry beer with a beautiful dry aftertaste. A thirst-quenching beer.

Belgian Beer no.301 and 2009

And here we go again :)
Sorry for the long silence, there will be more to follow as I am WAY busy ... but didn't stop drinking beer. Yet!
In the meantime, if you have some reviews you'd like me to post till I get back to normal - they'd be more than welcome.
Oh, and everyone knows beer no.301, no?
