St. Bernardus Extra 4
Price CategorySpecialty, Import
Beer StyleBelgian Blonde Ale
Alcohol By Vol.4.8%
CharacteristicsThe Extra 4 is brewed in the classic 'single' style and is a light gold colored beer with a ABV of only 4.8%. It is a beer of high fermentation, bottle conditioned and full of flavours. It is brewed with more hops than usual for the other beers of Brewery St. Bernardus.
When the brewery was founded in 1946 to brew and commercialize the beers of the Trappist Monks of Westvletern, the brewery received 4 beers from them: Abt 12, Prior 8, Pater 6 and Extra 4.
In the 70’s this ‘Enkel’ or ‘Single’ style went out of fashion and the production of the Extra 4 was discontinued.
Originally, the Extra was brewed by the Monks for their own consumption, but this beer is seldom sold in Belgium or abroad.
