I am a traditional abbey beer, brewed in the classic Dubbel style. My original recipe dates back to the time when my brewery still brewed under licence for the monks of Westvleteren. This means that my roots stretch even further and older than 1946!
Over the years, St. Bernardus have continued to fine-tune and perfect me. My brew uses the original Westvleteren yeast and thanks to long periods in cold storage, I am very full-bodied and rich in texture. I pour ruby in colour with aromatic notes of caramel, bread crust, pepper and apple. When you drink me, you can expect a perfectly balanced earthy malt to sweet fruit to bitter hop complexity.
