by Brouwerij De Brabandere

Brewery Bavik-De Brabandere has several different labels in its portfolio, with Petrus being the most notable.

As with many Belgian beers, there is a strong religious tone to the branding.  It is commonly done, most often with a sense of fun and playfulness which adds to the feel-good nature of Belgian beers.

The label greets us with a jolly looking fellow who we can assume is St Peter, waiting at the pearly gates with key in hand.  He also holds a Bavik beer, suggesting that this instead may be the key to heaven.

So what does this beer unlock?

It is a fairly traditional dubbel style with lots of sweet dark fruit aromas flavours.  An inviting caramel malt backbone, with a little burned sugar and slight winey vinuousness.

Did you know:  Petrus Dubble Bruin recently won a gold medal at the 2015 World Beer Awards (Belgian Style Dubbel).
