Gold yellow beer with a white head. Fruity and refreshing aromas that go well with the sweet aroma of malt and aromas that makes you think of spices. La Trappe Blond is an agreeable, tingling ale with a slightly sweet, softly bitter and malty taste and a lively aftertaste that combines sweetness with smooth bitterness.
The Koningshoeven Brewery is one of the few Trappist breweries in the world authorised to use the ‘Authentic Trappist Product’ logo. Because ale can only be called Trappist ale when it has been brewed between the four walls of a Trappist monastery, under the supervision of the monastery’s monks, and when part of the proceeds is earmarked for charity. Pure and honest. And that’s reflected in the taste.
The Koningshoeven abbey was established on 5th March 1881. The Trappists needed a source of income to support themselves and fulfil their charity duties. That is why they decided to brew beer.
In order to pay for the construction of an abbey, the monks began building a new brewery in 1891. They also built the malt tower, which to this day dominates the view of the brewery. The construction of a new abbey was paid for by the profits from the beer. To this present day, the brewery and abbey are a unique combination of an industrial and religious estate.
After the Second World War, the entire brewing world suffered from a shortage of raw materials and the monks even considered closing the brewery. However, in 1980 they introduced to the market a high-fermentation beer under the name La Trappe: the Dubbel. In that same year, the Tripel was also introduced. Although the La Trappe beer vary greatly from one another, they also have similarities. Each is a pure beer. Unique beers brewed with patience, passion and traditional craftmanship according to secret recipes of the Trappists.
