Country: BE | Style: Belgian Dubbel | Size: 330ml | %ABV: 8
St.Bernardus Prior 8 is a traditional abbey ale brewed in the classic "Dubbel" style of Belgium's Best Abbey Ales. It has a ruby to purple colour, smooth, creamy richness of texture that is almost oily, and a malt-fruit complexity reminiscent of coconut. It finds the perfect balance between sweet, bitter and malty tastes. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.
Since 1946 St. Bernardus Brewery have brewed strong dark and blond Trappist abbey ales. Using their own abbey house yeast, premium quality malts and hops from their own hop bines next door to the brewery.
