Our Trappist Ales

La Trappe is genuinely brewed ale. But it tastes of more than that. When you taste it carefully, you recognise the most important ingredient that is inextricably connected to the monks. The tranquillity.

La Trappe PUUR (4,7%)

Colour: Light blonde with a lovely, lasting head.

Aroma: Floral citrus hop with the aroma of malt and the background of yeast aromas.

Taste: When brewing this Skal-certified ale, only high-quality, organic ingredients are used. The result is a refreshing, continuously drinkable ale that tastes of hop with a dry and light malt flavour. La Trappe PUUR is a tasty alternative for the traditional lagers.

Features: Continuously drinkable organic Trappist ale

La Trappe Isid'or (7,5%)

Colour: Amber-coloured with a broken white head.

Aroma: A lovely combination of herbal, floral and fruity aromas.

Taste: La Trappe Isid’or was brewed in 2009 in honour of the 125th anniversary of Onze Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven Abbey. The harmonious taste starts as a fruity flavour and then shifts to malty caramel; a perfect balance between complexity and simplicity. The ale is named after brother Isidorus, the first master brewer of the abbey.

Aftertaste: Pleasantly bitter.

Features: Trappist ale with a symbolic value

La Trappe Witte Trappist (5,5%)

Colour: Light blonde and cloudy with a stable and lasting head.

Aroma: Lightly sour and refreshing by the use of wheat malt with a floral and fruity (citrus, peach, apricot) hop aroma. This results in a spicy aroma that makes you think of pepper and cloves.

Taste: La Trappe Witte Trappist is a drinkable and refreshing thirst-quencher. Smooth, malty, slightly sour and tingling because it’s carbonated.

Aftertaste: Dry and lightly bitter. Advice for serving: Pour the bottle up to the last centimetre. Loosen up the yeast that is still sitting in the bottom of the bottle. Now pour this also into the glass. The yeast will sink like a turbid veil through the ale.

Features: The only Trappist white ale in the world
