La Trappe - Quadrupel

Hello Everyone, its Belgian Beer Sunday's again and I have a good one today. This weeks choice is "La Trappe", another Belgian Trappist Beer, produced under the supervision of Trappist Monks. This time I decided to go with a Quadrupel, which I didn't even know existed till I saw it on the shelf earlier today. This beer is the strongest beer that La Trappe produces and its aged an extra long time in Oak Barrels.

This beer has a beautiful amber color and a sweet dark aroma. It pours very well and retains a nice white head for a few minutes. The first sip was flavorful with hints of fruit and ended with a nice alcoholic bitter taste at the end. I give this nice lad 4/5 stars when it comes to Belgian Beers. The price was the same as any other Belgian Trappist Beer, weighing in at about $10.50 for the 350ml bottle you see in the picture. Not at all heavy and very easy to drink, you wouldn't need to have this guy with chocolate, but it might help to reset your palette, so you can taste the fruity undertones over and over again. Next week I am going to break away from Belgian Trappist Beers and try something a tad bit more main stream, stay tuned.

See you at the bar!
