- Stan Hieronymus (author of Brew Like a Monk) and Kristen England (BJCP Continuing Education Director) bring you this very special kit. "Brouwerij'ed" on the left side of the Belgian town Malle solely for consumption by the reverent Cistercian brothers. This ale is not served or sold to the public, making it one of the rarest beers in the world. Made only from pilsner malt, hops, and yeast, the complexity that results from these simple ingredients is staggering: perfumey floral hops, ripe pear fruit, sour apple, spicy cloves, candied citrus and a slight biscuit character on the drying finish ... a monk's session beer.
Note: If you wish to achieve a level of carbonation similar to the commercial examples of this beer, add an additional 1 to 2 oz plain table sugar to the priming solution.

10 months agoGotta Love The Monks!Love this kit - the most pure / simple beer you can make for Spring with that slight Belgian twist. A long time favorite.April 29, 2017Purchased
1 year agoGreat tasting lighter Belgian.Normally when I and my brewing friends brew a Belgian, we go much heavier and set out to make a triple or strong ale. This beer still had a lot of the Belgian yeast esters we like, with less grain and lower alcohol. I really liked the result, and It was well liked by the few friends I had try it, too.February 28, 2017Purchased
1 year agoGreat spring session beerI always like to have something on tap to offset the pale ale/ipa that I usually have on the other tap. This is light and refreshing with a lemony flavor. Not exactly the scaled down triple that I was expecting, more like Hoegaarden. It will be perfect for a day on the river this spring.May 15, 2016Patersbier!High quality ingredients make high quality beer. The Patersbier kit is top notch for sure, it made me look like a home brew rock star. Even my wife loved it.April 11, 2016Cider for people who prefer beerThis is a great, dry session beer. It has strong apple and pear notes from the Trappist yeast, but it's clearly beer. I tend not to like sweet cider, but this hits the spot.November 27, 2015Now I know why this Ale is not served nor sold to the publicJust kidding, this is a really nice Belgian Ale. Fun to brew if you want to test your temperature control through the traditional multistep. I used the Wyeast 3787 with a starter which sent this wort into ferment heaven for 3 weeks. I hit all the temps spot on. Ended at 1005 FG. I agree with the floral hops scent, but it also has an old cheese smell. Finishes very dry and pepper notes linger forever. Nice mouthfeel. Excellent beer for a hot day, no sweetness to make you stop after 2 beers. Its not going to impress light beer drinkers, so don't be fooled by the color because this one will fill your nose and make you crave a European cheese plate for dessert.August 3, 2015Excellent BeerVery simple but very flavorful. Not your typical heavy Belgian yeast flavors but not watered down Pilsner and hops flavor either. Really liked this kit and will brew it again.June 19, 2015Complex tasting, easy brewI brewed this using a three-step infusion but other than that was an easy brew. I fermented at 68F, two weeks in primary and a week in secondary and kegged. I was expecting just a smooth, easy to drink, kinda non-descript beer but ended up with layers of flavor and a peppery-dry finish. The wife wants another batch; need I say more?May 11, 2015AMAZING!Absolutely amazing summer beer! I tasted heavy clove as I was sampling while bottling, but that has eased after just 2 weeks. Heavy nose of spice and fruit, same on the palate, plus subtle hops bitterness. and a nice dry finish. If your'e a fan of Ommegang Hennepin, as I am, you'll love this beer. Seems too simple to be this good!April 25, 2014
