Trappist brewery Rochefort is surprisingly coming out with a new Trappist beer: Triple Extra. It will be the first new brew in 65 years. Remarkable: for the first time, the brewery is presenting a blond beer. The new beer will be in the shops from this weekend.
Located in Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy Abbey in Rochefort, the Trappist brewery has been known for years for its Rochefort 6, 8 and 10. The Rochefort 6 is amber, while 8 and 10 are brown Trappists. Now, with the Triple Extra, a blond sister has been added, with an alcohol content of 8.1 percent.
“In 1920 the abbey was already producing a strong blond beer, but that production was stopped in 1923,” said a press release from the brewery on Wednesday. ‘We had been considering releasing a blond beer on the market for several years, but then decided to wait until exactly 100 years after the production of the first’ blond ‘.’
The new beer should be in stores this weekend at the latest, but will initially be produced in limited numbers. ‘We are surprised by the quality of the first brews, but we will continue to evaluate the beer and make adjustments where necessary,’ says the brewery.
The color of the label of the new Trappist will be purple, “a color very present in the Catholic religion and also the color of friendship,” the brewers conclude.
