An 8th Trappist brewery?! In France?! That's what this beer is - a product of the Mont des Cats monastery who is applying to become the newest member of the exclusive Trappist club. This beer wasn't actually brewed by them, though, it was made by the monks of Abbey de Scourmont in Belgium - better known as the brewers of Chimay. So a Trappist brewery essentially contract-brewed a Trappist ale for a different monastery - does that make this an authentic Trappist product? Well, it's a huge gray area so I'll leave that up to you to figure out. As for the beer itself, it's hard to tell what style it belongs to - again, you decide. I'll decide how good the beer is.
