COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voor het eerst in 125 jaar opent in Nederland een nieuwe trappistenbrouwerij haar deuren. De naam van het bier is Zundert naar de plaats waar de brouwerij staat. Zundert trappist is een kopergoud bovengistend bier met acht procent alcohol.

Alengrin (35) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
The second trappist brand in the Netherlands, easily available in Belgium as well. Yellowish, creamy, sticky, mousse-like head, pure amber colour, misty after addition of the ’fond’; aroma of apricots, curaçao, calvados, caramel, yeast, some old ’jenever’, dry leaves, mango, jute; taste nicely fruity, orange, grapefruit and peach, relatively sharp carbonisation, vivid, tender caramel-like and nutty maltiness, spicy yeastiness, ever becoming dryer and more bitter towards the end with peppery and even very slightly tonic water-like hops, ending in a well-balanced yeastiness with just a hint of calvados-like, warming alcohol. Still lacks some of the ’pride’ and character of the big Belgian trappist brands, but not bad, not bad at all.

Bouteille 33cl, BB 09/01/2016 Ambrée, col fin blanc cassé. Arôme offre une pointe épicée presque fleuri avec un petit bouquet levure rappelant un léger Westmalle? pointe caramel et biscuité. Palais est ici aussi légèrement épicé, malté sur une touche de cara pâle, pointe de sucre résiduel, petite douceur mielleuse. Alcool se pointe sur la fin avec une note amer houblonnée noble en retrait. Le profil épicé demeure dominant sans être surfait avec ce petit clin d’œil à la baie de genévrier.

fkoolen (217) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2014
Amber colour, big beige head. Thin aroma. Malts and yeast dominate taste, quite typical trappist flavours. Good body, medium carbonation. Can’t see the addition to the existing range of trappists.

maruno (30) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
From a bottle in La Trappe glassware, forms a nice light tinted head. The beer looks astounding, tinted somewhat darken than most triples. Smells like a refreshing fruit. Tastes bittersweet with aroma’s of yeast, dried orange/yellow fruit, creamy caramel and a touch of alcohol. A nice new addition to the trappists!

droef (73) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Nice beer! Smooth drink for an 8% alcohol beer. The bottle and label look as the are from the La Trappe brewery, but appearantly it’s not related.

VsXsV (2144) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear deep copper liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruit toffee, caramel and sweet alcohol. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of toffee, dried fruit and caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice.

flip_soeperman (540) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Trappist quite different from the usual trappist beers (except Orval). Quite bitter hoppy belgian beer. In the basis still a tripel, but nicely balanced with fruity bitter notes.

kevnic2008 (7582) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Pours amber color with some head. Aroma was malt and grain. Taste was consistent with aroma, but a touch of alcohol.

Silvan7 (636) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle @ home. ambrata carica, velata solo quando si versa il fondo, schiuma beige fine e persistente. aroma intenso, fruttato, di mela cotta, lievito belga zucchero candito, cannella uvetta. Gusto abboccato ricorda uno strudel di mele non troppo dolce. Si avverte lo zucchero candito e ritrovo la cannella. poco corposa, calda, abbastanza rotonda. equilibrata ed armonica
