TRAPPIST OR DUBBEL?

In 1865 the priests of Westmalle began brewing a dark Trappist beer notwithstanding their table beer. They balanced the recipe in 1926, multiplying the measures of crude fixings to create another, more grounded beer. Dubbel is an intelligent name for this doubled beer, though it is all the more frequently just called 'Trappist'. To this day, the 1926 recipe is the reason for Westmalle Dubbel.
