In 1934, the successful opening of the Westmalle brewery was celebrated with a ground-breaking new beer – me. Brewed based on a recipe by Henri Vanderlinden, a master brewer and then-advisor to the brewery, I am the first Tripel beer in the world.
"Tripel" makes reference to the fact that ingredients used in the beer are in quantities thrice larger than usual. Crafted with European hops and the finest barley malts, I pour clear golden with a creamy white froth that offers a complex fruity-sweet and bitter-hoppy profile. I am elegant and refined, yet soft and inviting, worthy of my age-old nicknames like the "Champagne of Belgium" or the "Mother of all Tripels".
