Brewed by:
Pour Decisions Brewing Company
Minnesota, United States | website

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Patersbier starts with perfumed floral hops, ripe pomme fruit, spice and candied citrus; there's a slight biscuit character on a dry, crisp finish. The monastic tradition looms large over every brewer, and this is truly a beer spirited away from a monk's table.

On tap at Stub & Herb's

Golden and clear with a good head, certainly appealing. Aroma is pils malt, touch of grassy hops and some phenols. Light malt base supporting crisp fruit, grass and spice. A little hop forward in my opinion, perhaps tailored so. Crisp, refreshing and very good.

First tried this new brewery's beers at Winterfest and really enjoyed their Patersbier so had to make the trip to Roseville for a couple pints and a growler. First pint from the growler provides a couple fingers of sticky white head that laces the glass very nicely. Golden and crystal clear. Aroma is distinctively Belgian...yeasty, fruity esters with a nice clean crisp barley malt character, some subtle spicy hops in here too. Taste is like the aroma, a nice citrus fruity estery yeast quality with clean yet significant malt backbone. Finish is very clean and crisp with a moderately high carbonation. A very easy to drink brew with plenty of character. A top-notch Belgian style brew. Glad I don't have to be a monk to get my hands on this. World-class-impressive new beer. I'll be continuing to hit up this new brewery to check out their offerings. So far of the 3 I've tried this one is their star.
