From Beau’s All Natural Brewing in Vankleek Hill Ontario comes their “Farm Table: Patersbier”. The beer pours a mildly cloudy golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of grainy malts, yeast, earth and citrus. The flavour is of bready and grainy malts, yeast, citrusy lemon, herbal and leafy hops and mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 4.7% and an IBU of 22. This session ale has quite a bit of flavour and is nice to see as so many really don’t.
Commercial Description: Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers inspired by tradition and brewed true to a classic style. Patersbier is a refreshing Belgian-style ale, both bright and cloudy at once. This subtly sweet and floral beer makes a great companion to a spring afternoon in the backyard; or for a summer evening as the sun sets and the ninth inning wraps up.
Food Pairing as per brewery: Hot & sour soup with chicken and tofu; chicken braised with Patersbier, grain mustard & herbs with spaetzle; Nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice); bloomy rind brie-style cheeses.
