St.Bernardus Pater 6

Character, taste, aromas

This Paterke is not just any old brown beer: it unites the deep flavour of specialty malt with the lively fruitiness of ripe tree fruits. Impressions of hazelnut and mocha lie at the basis of the mouth feel, which flows into an excellent yet playful duel between the mild taste of dark candy sugar and a slightly toasted but dry grain character. Plenty of apple and pear aromas make their magnificent presence felt all the way to the slightly bitter aftertaste.

St.Bernardus Pater 6


St.Bernardus Pater 6 is a great choice to complement pork recipes or contrast against zesty cheeses.
