European Beer Star Awards: Gold for La Trappe Dubbel and Silver for La Trappe Witte Trappist

The winners of European Beer Star 2014 are selected: Gold medal for La Trappe Dubbel and Silver medal for La Trappe Witte Trappist

The competition „European Beer Star“ of Private Brauereien, was founded 11 years ago and has become one of the most desired prices of the international brewery sector. This year, The Koningshoeven brewery from the Netherlands is among the winners: The La Trappe Dubbel was awarded the gold medal and the La Trappe Witte Trappist was awarded the silver medal at European Beer Star 2014, one of the world’s greatest beer competitions, in the category Belgian-Style Dubbel and Belgian-Style Witbier.

Never before has it been so difficult to achieve such a result, because the competition was impressive: In total, 1,613 beers from 42 countries were entered – an increase of 7% compared to the record year of 2013! An important element contributing to the prestige of the price is the set of criteria on which the decisions have been made. A 105-person-jury consisting of master brewers, beer sommeliers and recognised beer experts based their decision on criteria such as: Colour, aroma, taste, aroma profile and the general impression: Exactly as the consumer would evaluate a beer.
