A luminous golden-blond Trappist beer. Crisp mouthfeel with touches of green apples, pears and white peach with a hint of spice lead the mouth into a thirst quenching finale. Floral hops round out this exceptional drink.
Belgian Trappist ale’s best kept secret. 4.8% ABV
This is one of Westmalle Abbey’s oldest beers. In 1836, the monks started brewing a light, tasty beer for their own consumption. It was from this tradition that Westmalle Extra was born. Yet it was only recently that it went on sale to the public, offering Westmalle’s lowest alcohol content drink for all to enjoy. Ideally served at 6°-10°C.
Should be enjoyed with a range of delicious freshwater fish dishes such as trout and pike.
The history of Westmalle Abbey begins in the 1790s when a group of Cistercians, fleeing the French Revolution, founded a priory in an area which had seen centuries of devastation due to the bubonic plague and the 80 years war. With this establishment came farmland on which they produced many traditional products but it wasn’t until 1836 that the first beer was brewed. Initially the sale was only brewed for the needs of the community but in 1856 brothers began to sell the beer from the gates of the abbey. As demand increased so the Brewery underwent two expansions, in 1865 and 1897. With the Second World War came a time of devastation yet despite the difficulties which followed Westmalle was able to commercialise their beers to a degree which allowed them to spend generously on community outreach efforts both home and as far abroad as the Congo.
