Tripel | 330ml | ABV 8.4%
Tripel Karmeliet is one of the greatest Belgian classics and an all-time bestseller. It was first brewed in 1996 and uses three cereal: wheat, oats and barley. The beer is still brewed according to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 derived from the old Carmelite convent in Dendermonde, it is then bottle-conditioned. The Tripel Karmeliet has a complex gold to bronze colour, with a creamy head. This is partly due to the cereals but also to the limited use of Styrian hops, the abundant herbs and fruity aroma (banana and vanilla) of the used yeast. This beer has not only the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats, and it also has a spicy, lemony dryness almost reminiscent of quinine.
