Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Patersbier–Dutch for "fathers beer"–is a light, refreshing Belgian-style table beer traditionally consumed by Trappist monks with their meals (or when no one was looking). Ours is golden in color, dry and highly carbonated. German Pilsner malt contributes mild notes of bread, while the Czech Saaz hops add notes of spice and earth tones to the aroma. A classic Belgian Trappist ale yeast delivers delicate and complex fruity notes. Goes great with friends, family, and thwarts all enemies.

Draft at the brewery, quick review from written notes.
Served in a tapered sampler glass. bright gold with a lasting head of drippy lace.
Aromas of vanilla and spicy Belgian yeast. Light lemony tang, dominant Belgian yeast flavors.
Crisp and light bodied, finishes dry. Overall it's pretty drinkable, not bad.

Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices and dryish malts. The flavor is vanilla, Belgian yeast, mild fruit/lemons, malts and a mix of mild sweetness and tart in the finish.

I can't pronounce the name but I recently had this on draft at a local Bar Louie and I thought it was pretty good.
They were calling it Phobo at the bar because I guess no one else can pronounce or remember it's full name either. Appearance was good with a nice golden color and a little foam on top. It had a nice crisp pale ale flavor with some fruit tones. Supposedly it is a summer beer, but it is being released in the winter which I don't quite understand, however I would rank it right up there with other well regarded pale ales and would order it again if given the opportunity.... summer or winter!
