Zundert was the 9th official Authentic Trappist Monastery, located in the town of Zundert (funnily enough) in The Netherlands.
The Monastery was founded in 1899 by monks from the Koeningshoeven (La Trappe) Monastery, also in The Netherlands. It took some time for the monastery to commence brewing operations though, with the brewery officially opened on 6th December 2013.
They currently produce just one style of beer. Zundert is a classic Belgian tripel style. It pours a lovely amber colour, and has all the hallmark tripel aromas – orange citrus, melon, caramel malt, light spices and of course the typical Belgian yeast characteristics.
The beer is slightly heavier in body, with an early sticky fruit sweetness. The combination of citrus and light peppery spice lighten the mouthfeel as the beer progresses.
