Another beer I reviewed while in The Red Rose, Brugge. Although this isn’t a Trappist beer the bars motto/logo ‘Trappist beer, taste the silence@ Rose Red’ certainly is true: this is a lovely place to review a few beers in.

Initially brewed for the ‘Brugse Autonome Bierproevers’, not sure what the 401 is about though? It was so popular it has become a regularly brewed beer and is available in other parts of Belgium now, not just in Brugge.

Slight haze to the yellow body and only a small white head sits on top of brew.

The smell is a typical Belgian Abbey Tripel blend of yeasts, hops and light malts.

The taste is also fairly typical, hop front with fruity hints and a mild malt content to prevent the beer appearing too sour or tart.

Like so many Belgian brews, this is so easy to drink, you have to check the alcohol levels to make sure you aren’t going to fall over after a mini-session of three beers or so.
