The first official Trappist beer to be brewed in the US is ready for release, according to reports. 

Spencer Trappist Ale, from St Joseph's Abbey, in Spencer, Massachusetts, was last week authenticated by Brussels' International Trappist Association, according to industry news source Drink Belgian Beer. The label describes the 6.5% abv beer as a “full-bodied golden-hued Trappist ale with fruity accents”. 

The beer is understood to have been in production since October, but the brewery's official website is yet to go live

Only nine other breweries in the world, in Belgium, France and the Netherlands, have permission to produce Trappist beer. 

St Joseph's Abbey, which dates back to 1825, already has Trappist authentication for the jams and marmelades it produces. 

Earlier this year, London brewer Fuller, Smith & Turner teamed up with Trappist brewer Chimay to launch Chimay Gold in the UK
