TASTING NOTES

A traditional abbey ale brewed in the classic “Dubbel” style of Belgium’s Trappist Monks. It has a ruby to purple colour, smooth, creamy richness of texture that is almost oily, and a malt-fruit complexity reminiscent of coconut.

BREWERY SNAPSHOT

Based in Watou, Belgium, Brewery St.Bernard brews dark and blond abbey ales since 1946. All of their beers are brewed with their own yeast, malts of the highest quality and hops from their own hopfield right next to the brewery.

DID YOU KNOW?

The history of this brewery is connected to 2 trappist monasteries, one gave us their name, the other gave us their beer. The Cheese Factory – Trappist monks of Mont des Cats in Godewaersvelde, France. Due to the anti clerical policy in the beginning of the past century, the Catsberg Abbey Community, located in the northern part of France, decided to move to Watou, a small village only a couple of kilometres further away but located in Belgium. They transformed a farm into the “Refuge Notre Dame de St.Bernard” and started with the production of Abbey cheese. Shortly after the Second World War, the Trappist Monastery St.Sixtus in Westvleteren was looking for somebody to commercialise their beer because they did not want to do that themselves anymore. They gave a license to the cheesefactory, and Brewery St.Bernard was founded.
