Best by date of 5/5/2014. Picked this up as part of a holiday gift pack, which conveniently included a St. Bernardus goblet.
Poured a ruby-brownish color with a cloudy consistency. Lots of fluffy cream-colored head initially, which reduced to a thin half-finger in a few minutes. Smells included a variety of fruit; banana and cherry were the most prevelant and there were hints of vanilla as well. Tasted of raisins and dates, along with sweet biscuity malt. There was a subtle dry hoppiness at the end of the taste which pleasantly contrasted the sweetness at the front. Very well balanced! A little bit of natural carbonation gave this beer an easy-drinking medium body.
Overall I really enjoyed Pater 6. This was my first forray into the St. Bernardus family, and I really enjoyed the experience. This was by far the smoothest and most well-balanced dubbel I've ever tasted. Lots of complex taste, but no one aspect overpowered the others. Can't wait to try the others!
