Hamirubi  (40) Waarschoot, Belgium | August 24, 2017
Visited De Trappisten on 13 VIII 2017. This used to be a very charming, cosy and small bar, opposite to the brewery and abbey domain. The place had little scenic seats for families, making place for private tastings and being together. Now, the small, picturesque café has made place for a large and too-modern venue with huge indoor and outdoor facilities. Making the place just clean, unpleasant and polished - quite the contrasting experience. Why would you want to go to this place now? Well, there is the Westmalle Dubbel from tap, which is a lovely treat. The Westmalle Tripel comes from the shelf or from the fridge, as you wish. You can even had the "half-en-half", a half Tripel is poured out of the bottle, the other 15 or so centiliters come from draught. Not the best mouthfeel, a beer experience which is neither fish nor flesh, but hey... where else would you have this? The food is neat and tasteful. The bar-restaurant has a high-priced chart, for sure. The place itself is most often crowdy and loud, so go to a table on the outside pavement with view on the play garden. This is visit-worthy when you are in the neighbourhood, or when you just go and see the abbey woods and footpaths. Then you definitely should pop in and have that draught Westmalle Dubbel. Nothing more, nothing less.

The cafe attached to the brewery, I suggest going and walking around the grounds first, because the cafe doesn’t offer a whole lot to see, modern and large. They offer the two beers, dubbel and tripel, or a mix of the two if you want, and also cheese and bread, the other trappist products. If you’re trying to hit all the trappists, worth a stop, but there are plenty of other places to get the beer.

Modern restaurant met groot terras. Bieren van de abdij van het vat en een paar andere. Eten is ook mogelijk. Prijsniveau is nogal hoog.

Massive, modern place. Not much in the way of ambience but not bad. Beers are the dubbel, tripel & Zundert and service good. There are, however, many much nicer cafe to drink these beers. Not really much to recommend unless huge , modern & efficient is your thing. The 410 Antwerp/Turnout bus stops outside.

The spot to drink the nearest Westmalle to the abbey. Dubbel and Tripel here, Dubbel from the tap and Tripel from the bottle, Cold or shelve tempereture. Also you can drink the Dubbel and Tripel mixed together, but i missed the Westmalle Extra. Very big place inside and outside. Choise of beer is very limited but for Westmalle-fans this is the place.

A pretty good cafe with all of the beers from Westmalle and the new brew from Zundert. About as close to Westmalle as you’re going to get.

Been there a while ago. You can have Westmalle here. With or without grenadine. That kind of place. Food is okay if I remember correctly. Not really for beer geeks this is.

Had a beer here at a small trip to Westmalle years ago. Couldnt enter the brewery itself, but had a westmalle dubbel on the patio together with a croque monsieur.
