La Trappe Quadrupel (Oak Aged) | Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.
Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.
Style: Quadrupel (Quad)
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%
Notes / Commercial Description:
In 2009, the Koningshoeven brewery reinstated an age-old tradition: aging La Trappe Quadrupel in oak barrels (also known as ‘barriques’).
This way of aging ale results in a unique, complex flavour, which varies from one type of barrel to another. Quadrupel can be conserved for many years, and is a real treat for true ale enthusiasts. And this is yet another ale that continues to ferment after bottling, while its rich taste and high tannin content are likely to even surprise many a wine drinker!
