   Rochefort (B)

The "Trappistes Rochefort" is a brown ale. It is brewed and bottled within the walls of the Abbey of Saint-Remy in Rochefort. The modest dimensions of this brewery enable the Trappist monks and their collaborators to perfectly control production. Its artisan nature is particularly appreciated by more discerning palates. This beer contains only natural products; spring water, malt barley, hops, sugar. Yeast ensures the fermentation. Fermented again in the bottle, the Trappistes Rochefort releases its essence when it is served in an original glass at a temperature between 12 to 14°C.
