Note: Best by date was 02-2010.  You will find this beer in the US under the name ‘Koningshoeven Trappist Ale’ as in the  USA and Canada, ‘La Trappe’ is marketed under the name ‘Koningshoeven Trappist Ale’.

 The strongest beer of La Trappe with a beautiful amber colour. The warm taste is full and well-balanced. A little bit sweet and pleasantly bitter. La Trappe Quadruple is also fermented in oak barrels.   Since recently, we also age La Trappe Quadrupel in oak barrels. This gives the oak-aged Trappist beer an even fuller taste with a special wooded scent, which is comparable to wood-aged red wine.”
