"Electric" Beer Finds

Rob and I have been constantly driving by this huge store on the French Side of the border between Ferney and Prevassin called "E.LECLERC". I just called it the huge "electric" store since that is what the sign looks like at first glance. Inside we found a large grocery store and household items. They also had very large wine sections and beers we haven't seen yet . . .

La Goudale brewed by La Brasseurs de Gayant - 7.2%
Light Blonde french beer from l'ancienne region. 
It was okay - mediocre - and not a lot of flavor besides bitterness. 

Mort Subite - Kriek - 4.5%
A typical Belgium cherry lambic. Kinda tasted like cough syrup.
Rob couldn't drink it at all. I didn't want to see it go to waste so to match the candy flavor I consumed a knock off starburst candy with it.  

Westmalle - Trappit - Tripel - 9.5% - 33cl
By far one of the best beers we have had so far. It had sweet maltyness with high alcohol. It was suprisingly malty for such a light beer. 
It is a "trappist" beer. That means it has been brewed by certified trappist monks at one of the 7 breweries. The Westmalle brewery make 3 type of beers. You may know a famous trappist beer . . .  can you guess?
Chimay is a trappist beer!
