Brewed in the Belgian Dubbel style, The Father is our first beer in the Half Pints Holy Trinity series. Brewed using divine inspiration and a combination of Vienna, Dark Crystal, and Biscuit malts, this full bodied ale is hopped with Czech Saaz and Styrian Goldings. The special yeast strain we have used creates the aroma of ripe fruit while an addition of Demerara sugar creates a dry finish which Monastic brewers say lends a "digestible" quality to the beer. Try it with Manitoba Trappist Cheese or with a simple family dinner of baked ham, scalloped potatoes, and honey glazed carrots. Serve at 8 degrees celcius in a wide mouthed chalice. Unfiltered. 20 IBUs.

    Somewhat disappointing, only because I've come to expect great things from this brewery every time. A solid mix of flavors, but nothing stands out too much.

    Bottle courtesy of Piscator34: Poured a clear medium amber color ale with a medium foamy head with some good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt is dominating with a light yeasty finish. Body is about average with some good carbonation and no alcohol was discernable. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed by this one and I was expecting more complexity and some dry fruits (figs) component.

    660ml bomber ( thanks Kris) Poured a lightly hazed orange ale, with reddish highlights, in the glass...decent sticky 2 finger cap..moderate retention, good lacing. Aromas are a tad understated but delicious; musty-woody, floral citrus and sweet...much like a marmalade smell...I’m salivating in anticipation of the first sip here. Flavour is relatively complex...lots of floral and citrus hops, earthy tones, nuttyness and succulent fruit tones from the yeast and yeast by-products ample sweetness from malts and sugars...long warm finish tastes like a mouthful of tart marmalade...excellent. I have a gap in my beer education about Belgian dubbels...not having enough of the original to sample, it’s hard to say how this compares but I can say I like the way this brew came together. The catch phrase that sticks with me in describing its character is is "liquid marmalade".
