La Trappe Tripel – Bierbrouwerij de Koningshoeven

From the Brewery Bierbrouwerij de Koningshoeven located at the O.L.V. Koningshoeven Abby in the Netherlands comes the “La Trappe Tripel” a Belgian Tripel.  This is the only Trappist brewery located outside of Belgium and only 1 or 7 in the world.  These Monks know their beer and laws have been passed to make sure only they can call their beer Trappist beer.  This beer pours a cloudy unfiltered amber colour with an off white head.  To the nose you will get a sweet yeasty aroma with apple, pear, candied sugar.  The flavor is complex with some apple, pear, banana, grapes with a strong yeasty character.  This beer is fairly sweet overall but not overpowering with no alcohol flavor what so ever.  This is one of my favorite Trappist Beers to date.  The beer comes in at an alcohol content of 8%.
