Brewed it with the Wyeast liquid yeast. As advertised, turned out complex but not overpowring Belgian flavors (very floral) from simple ingredients. Simply a delicious beer. (Posted on 8/20/14)
Great summer beer Review by Jeff
Rating
I tend to drink a lot of IPAs during the hot summer months here in SC and was looking for an alternative. The Patersbier is a great option. I have positive feedback from all that have sampled.

This beer works for craft beer drinkers who can appreciate the simplicity and aromas/taste from the Belgian yeast. I have also found that is is very popular with many who tend to prefer those large commercial offerings as it is not hop forward.

A great summer beer! (Posted on 6/24/14)
incredible summer brew Review by Patrick
Rating
This beer is awesome! I am a huge fan of belgians, but i wanted a brew for summer that wouldn't totally put you an your butt. The patersbier is perfect for this. It is a very simple beer with huge flavor. High krausen is pretty nuts. i would highly recommend a blow off for this. I fermented in the primary for 3 weeks. Started out at 68F and let it rise to 70F over the 3 weeks. Highly recommend this beer. This wil be in my regular rotation without a doubt! (Posted on 5/31/14)
Excellent Early Summer Brew Review by Chuck
Rating
First time using a yeast starter and stir plate, results were outstanding. I added a little local honey at the boil out. First fermentation very active, produced a creamy and bubbly kreuzen, 18 days. Second fermentation had some activity for about a week, again in carboy for 18 days. Gave it a week to carb at 20 psi. 3 weeks later all I can say is that it has a full bodied head and a nice light crisp taste. Very happy with the results (Posted on 5/28/14)
Great Taste & Easy to Make Review by David

I'm a novice, this being only my second batch to brew, and this was very easy. Being easy to brew doesn't mean that the beer had a simple taste though. I made this before Christmas and gave it out to family and friends and they all loved it. I will definitely try this one again soon. (Posted on 4/8/14)
Warning: Be on the lookout for blowoff! Review by Mark
Rating
I haven't had a chance to taste this beer yet as I am currently on my second attempt to brew a batch. I lost the first batch when I had major blowoff when I was away from my house for the day, resulting in a solidly clogged airlock and a lost batch (for safety). So, I have started this project again with fresh ingredients in a 6.5 gal acid carboy (instead of the 6 gal I had used before) and it came very very close to blowoff, even with the additional headroom. All this activity is all within the first 12-48 hours. So - if you buy this kit just beware that you watch the primary fermentation like a hawk, or just setup a blowoff hose from the start.

I think this will be a good one Review by Marty
Rating
I brewed this on 12/14. This was my third ever recipe I brewed. I added 10 oz of Belgian candy sugar that raised the sg to 1.053, left in primary for 3 weeks, racked to secondary to settle the remaining sediments, then kegged today (01/11) with C02 @ 35 psi for 8 hours, then down to serving pressure, which I intend to hold at for the next two weeks while conditioning. I took a couple of "samples" about 10 hours after kegging, it tastes pretty good with moderate to low hop flavor and quite a bit of fruity esters, which I expect to attenuate in the next couple of weeks or so. I expect that proper aging and carbonation will make this a very nice brew in the next two to three weeks or so. (Posted on 1/12/14)

An employee of the Milwaukee store recommended this brew saying it was one of his favorites. I have inlaws that are not micro brew guys so I brewed this for them for x-mas. It turned out perfect and if they don't like it they don't get anymore of my brew :). Took a little longer to carbonate, but worth the wait. Will definately have this on tap when the kegerator is up and running. (Posted on 12/23/13)
Compliments Galore! Review by Mike

Back in July I mentioned I had added 6 cans of Oregon tart cherries to this beer at the same time I was fermenting a Dawson's Kriek to compare the two. The added cherries (pureed) to the Patersbier proved phenomenal!! Special occasion beer! My British neighbor went so far as to call me a "genius" for it but the true credit goes to this awesome and inspiring recipe, whether you brew it straight or go for inspiring additions.

One of my favorites Review by Chad
Rating
Brewed my first Patersbier December 30, 2008. Made my 6th Patersbier yesterday. The 3787 Wyeast is the secret to the complex flavors. I use Northern Brewer's priming guide, as it is better with a little extra carbonation. NB has played with the hops over the years, but always turns out good. I used the primary yeast from my last batch to make a Tripel. I wasn't very scientific about it, just swirled up the whole works and dumped it in. Turned out great. (Posted on 10/27/13)

If only one Belgian ... Review by Robert
Rating
I've made several Belgian beers, and, frankly got bored with them. Until Patersbier. Followed the recipe exactly, with 4 weeks primary, using the Wyeast High Gravity liquid yeast, and used the extra 1 oz cane sugar at bottling. A few weeks in bottle and it's fantastic. Hello new Belgian beer. (Posted on 10/6/13)
Nice simple summer drink Review by longbowaj
Rating
I brewed this beer with a 5 gal boil but otherwise per the directions.

My first pitch of yeast didn't ferment, measured with a hydro. I suspect the yeast didn't make it because of the very hot temps and a longer then usual delivery time. I bought some a second pack wyeast 3787 from my local store and the ferm went great.

I bottled 3 weeks after pitching and carbed for a Saison, 3.2vol of CO2. This level of carb was a bit to much for me.

The flavor started with lots of banana and clove, both of those became more mild with time in the bottle. I'm at about 2 months in the bottle and it's got slight banana, clove and a drying finish. I don't get much biscuit or complexity but that may just be my tastes or to much carbonation. The color is nice and bright, just slightly darker then the picture (Posted on 9/30/13)
Fantastic Summer brew; A wonderful body for adding flavor Review by Kevin
Rating
This was my third brew and after two heavier beers (Caribou and WH Honey Porter) I decided something was a little lighter for the summer was in order. This was also something of a milestone for me as this marked my first brewing weekend with liquid yeast as opposed to to dry. Brew day went smoothly, fermented for four weeks in the primary (I only have the Essential Brewing kit currently) and then another two weeks conditioning in the bottle.

What came out was a beautiful and clear amber ale with wonderful flavor. As everybody has said this beer has a wonderfully complex flavor which is astounding because of the simplicity of the brewing ingredients. My wife also loves this stuff...LOVES it, and she's not much of a beer person.

This one is definitely being added to the regular rotation, and I think next summer there will be some experimentation with adding lemonade to the mix and making a Shandy style with this one. (Posted on 8/31/13)

A Favorite! Review by Mike

I've this a few times and love it. Very complex flavors for such simple ingredients. With age it develops a nice tartness, but not overpowering, just subtle. SO...I decided to tart up my latest batch and threw in 6 (normal sized) cans of Oregon tart cherries (blended) as an experiment...it'll be a while before I bottle it though but I'll try to remember to let you all know how it turned out. I also have a batch of Dawson's Kriek in progress to compare when done. (Posted on 7/14/13)

This by far is my favorite kit I have made to date. I have 4 bottles left that have been aging for 12+ months I cracked one open and the taste just keeps getting better and better. It literally dances on your tongue with all the complex tastes. For something so simple to make the taste is quite the opposite. (Posted on 6/5/13)
Beyond delighted! Review by Zach
Rating
I brewed this beer initially because it was cheap and I thought it'd be a good way to have a strong yeast cake for the Tripel. Despite it's simple ingredients, this beer turned out complex and delightful. Certainly has it's belgian elements, but it's light enough that most people can appreciate it. It's low ABV was perfect for summer and certainly a crowd pleasing beer. I thought I'd take it to homebrew club as a "filler beer" to use in case my "good stuff" went too fast, I wanted something to offer people if I would run out of everything else. Well, somebody got a hold of a bottle and that somebody happened to be the homebrew club president who has taken brews to the GABF as a Pro-Am brewer for the past several years. He loved it. Like, raved and raved about it, and he doesn't even like Belgians - he likes hardcore IPAs. I was astonished, as I had brewed it essentially as a give away beer. Don't underestimate this one, it's a hidden gem! (Posted on 3/13/13)

My New Lawnmower/Session Brew Review by Richard
Rating
Wow. This recipe proves that you don't have to have 20 ingredients or high gravity to brew a satisfying, interesting beer. It has the unmistakable taste of Belgians, without the overpowering funky yeasty taste that many have. Plenty of mouthfeel for such a low gravity session beer, great head with incredible lacing, good nose, and just incredibly drinkable. I've found my new "go-to" brew to alternate with my heavier, hoppier beers. This is just so much better than many of the ESB's, EPA's, and cream ales that have had that role in my rotations. Oh, and by the way, this is an awesome choice as a tan, for a black and tan - it has enough character that it doesn't get overpowered by the "black." (Posted on 1/18/12)

This was my 14th kit from NB. It is right up there with the best of them. I used 3/4 cup of corn sugar and after 6 days is was ready to go. A big frothy head that stays in the center of the glass like a baked marshmallow. The taste is clean and mellow, just as described, with hints of biscuit, floral, and bread...what a delight. I shared it with 4 brewers on brew day last weekend and they all loved it. (Posted on 11/15/11)
Perfect summer replacement to a pils Review by Quaker

Light and refreshing. Still have a few bottles 6 months later and still excellent. I would love to make again with a citrus flavoured hop such as cascade, citra, or especially sorachi. I expect that lemon flavour of sorachi would really make this beer pop. Wouldn't be true to its roots, but it's on my bucket list for a rebrew. (Posted on 11/7/11)

I've brewed this beer a couple times. It has a surprising complexity given the simple ingredients. I keg it, and let it sit a few extra weeks before drinking. It gets even better with a little age on it.

My cousin recommended this beer to me so I checked it out on here, read the comments, and never thought this beer could live up to these expectations. Boy was I wrong! The flavor and crisp taste you get from this beer is AMAZING. I used the wyeast option and needed a blow off tube 12 hours later.

I will definitely brew this beer again many times.

I had a problem with carbonation and it was operator error on my part. My advice as with many others here is it takes at least 3 weeks in the bottle. Those beers which were fully carbonated were terrific. Great notes of citrus made it refreshing and seem like heaven on a hot day. I will try it again sometime in the future and vow to wait 3 weeks before cracking a bottle. (Posted on 6/10/11)
It actually gets better with age? Review by Matt
Brewed this for the summer (4/14/11).. So far 3 weeks in a bottle, excellent well balanced beer... How can this beer get any better with age? This batch is going fast..

Suggestions:

The trappist yeast used stays elevated for a long long time. Directions were followed and I left it sit in the secondary a little longer. I became impatient and added a teaspoon of unflavored gelatin... It cleared out in 3-5 days.. After hearing about the possible low carbonation problem using gelatin... Theory, not true. The carbonation is perfect and my beer is clear (after 3 weeks).. Dont get worried about gelatin.. Just do it right (dont boil).

I do enough of session beers to hold us over until the big gravity ones are mature. This one is on the top. What a great, smooth, crisp drinker. Very easy and clean beer for all. I just wasn't expecting much except to try something different. I guess I got schooled on simplicity. I did, however, keep it in the secondary for an extra week with a reduced temperature in the low 60's. It seemed to have more of a clearing effect for the beer. The taste is very balanced. You will certainly like this one, make no mistake! (Posted on 5/19/11)

Amazingly complex and easy to make Review by UZZR
Rating
I have made this kit twice. It is amazing how complex this beer tastes with such minimal ingredients (the Trappist High Gravity Yeast is truly the star here). I brewed as instructed (except added the LME 20 minutes before the end of the boil). Primary 2 weeks, secondary 2 weeks. When the beer is young it has a very good candied citrus-pear taste with that yeasty "Belgian" flavor. As it get's older it develops more of a perfumy dry flavor to it, and the pear intensifies. It is difficult to describe because I've never had anything quite like it, but it is an excellent brew. Once I get my spare fridge where I can have multiple lines I will always keep this on tap.

Brewed in Feb 2010. Liked the beer last summer.

Not Impressed, but.... Review by Rettoc87
Rating
Brewed this with a Wyeast Belgian Dubbel Yeast (1214). Sweet with off flavor. I wasn't impressed. Doubled up on the yeast....brewed this first and then the NB Belgian Dubbel recipe on top of the same yeast.. Dubbel tastes great, so don't think it's the process. Maybe the yeast? Won't brew again unless someone can convince me that the yeast I used was the culprit.

Hate to go against the majority. First beer I (here goes) poured bottle down the drain. I still retain hope in the last few bottles...but not much. (Posted on 1/3/11)

Patience Rewarded Kindly Review by Uncle Tripel
Rating
I purchase and brewed the kit on January 30, 2010. I also added an additional 1/2 pound of lite candi sugar @ 50 minutes of the 60 minute 5 gallon boil.
The 3787 required a blow-off tube as after 18 hrs. the yeast was blowing out of the airlock. But seriously, I have 8 bottles remaining. It's now 9 months after bottling and this ale is no longer "green". It is very-well balanced, seriously drinkable, lacing down the glass, and a must for the summer. Had I known it would improve this much, I would have put the entire 48 bottles away for 9 months. My cellar temperature is between 58-65F.

You better brew it this winter, keep a nice cool fermentation temperature
(below 68F), and you will have a serious tasting belgian to enjoy on July 4th.

Versatile, tasty and rewards patience Review by Rob
Rating
If you read through some of the reviews you'll notice a lot of different style comparisons and thoughts on this beers taste which to me speaks of its complexity (and not lack thereof). Beautifully balanced in every way. Wheat beer fans will LOVE this for something different, light beer fans will like it for its body and crispness and darker beer fans should appreciate the weight, length and complexity this possesses. Oh, and this only gets better and better with age as some have pointed out. Very good two weeks after bottling, really hits its stride at about 2 months but at 5 months out this is still going strong and only getting smoother! (Posted on 10/17/10)

Great for hot weather Review by B
Rating
My only regret is that I didn't get to enjoy it during the hot season. Brewed it up back in late April and due to schedule and forgetfulness, it sat in the secondary for 3 months before I finally got it into bottles. Four weeks after that, I cracked one open and WOW.

The floral aroma and sweet, crisp taste was amazing. It had me kicking myself for not having this ready to pour on those days when the weather consistantly moved over the 90 degree mark. None the less, I already have it on the list for next year and will be doing it in a timely manner. (Posted on 9/17/10)

Simple, tasty, and worth waiting for Review by Yankee Brewer
Rating
The simplicity of this beer is what attracted me to it though I was a little disappointed with the rough-tasting final product. So, I let the remaining 40 or so beers age at room temperature for about 2 months and what a turn-around! Completely smoothed out the rough edges and turned out to be a great beer with nice head retention, lacing, and most importantly, taste!

The other two cents: Try this beer as a stepping stone for the Lefse Blonde kit, using the yeast cake from primary fermentation. I did this and both beers are very nice, plus it saves money. (Posted on 9/2/10)
simple doesn't mean plain Review by JBmadtown
Rating
This is my third kit and by far my best one to date. The simple recipe taught me that a good recipe doesn't always need many components. Instead, this beer has a wonderful balance of malt, hops and yeast.

Using a late extract addition method I achieved a wonderfully light color. The yeast provides a perfect amount of spice with a hint of sweetness. The saaz hops provide a wonderful aroma. Good head retention and very drinkable.

I then used the yeast cake to make a higher gravity belgian tripel. Can't wait to see how that one turns out. This kit will be on my list to brew every summer. (Posted on 8/20/10)

This one caught me a little of guard with my personal preference for very malty ales, but I wanted to try something different. Aroma was bready and slightly fruity.

loving this simple/complex ale Review by mthrt
Rating
The description promises surprising complexity and this ale most definitely delivers! I had one after two weeks conditioning and it was just a notch above so-so, but just one week later it was nothing short of stellar! Think crispy, spicy, floral Belgian engages in a battle already being fought between an American Pale versus a Czech Pilsner (Victory Prima Pils perhaps). It's got a beautiful dry, bready/biscuity finish with a spicy pepper that hangs around in your mouth for a long time. I love the lighter mouthfeel for Summertime too. I'm going to brew this again and throw in a half ounce of fresh basil from my garden at flameout and see where it takes me. Enjoy this ale peoples! Certainly worth checking out before it disappears!

Patersbier

Most Trappist breweries also feature a lower-alcohol "patersbier" or "fathers' beer" that is only available locally. This variety is designed to be consumed by the monks themselves, although it is sometimes offered at the monastery's on-site café.

I will be making this more than a few times in a year. Ya never know when
a monk might stop by. 8-) (Posted on 4/9/10)
