The Trappist Abbey ‘De Koningshoeven’ where the La Trappe beers are brewed is located in the Netherlands, near Tilburg. The monks there have been brewing since 1884, and in 1958 they started the successful range of La Trappe beers. These are all top fermented beers, but in a variety of different styles. The La Trappe beer whose flavor comes closest to this Tripel is the La Trappe Blond. But the monks of De Koningshoeven continue to innovate, one of the most recent new beers, La Trappe Puur, is a light biological beer with a taste similar to that of a very complex lager or pils beer.
