Mont Des Cats is a trappist abbey in Northern France, a few kilometres from the Belgian border. They do not have a brewery in their monastery, so their beer cannot show the Authentic Trappist Product logo. But it doesnt get much closer they have their beer brewed by the monks of Chimay!
Developed independently to the Chimay range, the beer is a lovely copper colour. The link to Chimay is evident in the distinctive Chimay yeast character, in both the aroma and taste.
A pleasant caramel malt sweetness introduces the beer, being joined by hints of dried fruits, gentle spices and an earthy, herbal hop character. As the beer progresses, the bitterness seems to build toward a nice lingering finish.
The abbey only makes one beer, with no intention for more. The abbey is recognised as a Trappist Monastery, allowing them to use the term on the labeling. But as the beer is not brewed on their own premises, the beer is not a Trappist ale.

I had it from Del Haize (super market) Brussels. Classic Belgian Ale taste. Trappist from France but without Trappist label :-) For me similar to Chimays!

Amberkleurig bier met snel zakkende schuimkraag. Kruidige neus met fruittoets. Moutig in de mond, peper in de afdronk.
