What's better than a trappist quadrupel? Not much my friend, not much. La Trappe is the only trappist brewery not located in Belgium. Fun fact, there are only 7 trappist breweries. Let's see what these monks have come up with.
Brewery: De Koningshoeven (La Trappe)
Price: $5-6 11.2oz bottle, $11-$12 25.4oz bottle
This beer pours a deep copper, almost red color with two fingers worth of off white head. Aroma is full of dark fruits (plums, pears, and cherries come to mind). This beer has a very deep and complex aroma, full of deep esters. Flavor is sweet, fruity, with a hint of spice from the yeast. The aftertaste is plums and alcohol. Body is medium with a good amount of carbonation.
Overall Score: 17/20
Final Score: 42/50
