The Trappist Westvleteren is brewed by the monks of the Sint-Sixtus abbey. Five natural ingredients are used to brew three Trappist beers: Blond, 8 and 12. They each have their own colour, taste and aroma. All beers are unfiltered and not pasteurised, with secondary fermentation in the bottle. All this contributes to the taste and aroma.
The Trappist Westvleteren is brewed and bottled within the abbey walls and only offered for sale on site. Wooden crates of 24 bottles in the Abbey itself, and a small package of 6 bottles in the “In de Vrede” meeting centre.
The Trappist Westvleteren meets the strict requirements of the International Trappist Association, and therefore also carries the “Authentic Trappist Product” trademark.
