Thoroughly inviting and deceptively drinkable, with heady notes of spice, fresh banana bread and sunny citrus, it finishes with a velvety smoothness and subtle sweetness. All balanced by a lively carbonation from bottle conditioning, this also helps the beer drink lighter than you’d think it would.
The Belgian Tripel is a style of power and deception! With alcohol levels ranging from 7.5%-9.5% abv it’s easy to think this is a heavy beer, but Tripels are brewed with candi sugar in the boil. The sugar during fermentation will ferment, raising alcohol levels but it actually lightens the body of the beer.
The style is also fermented by a special strain of ale yeast known in Belgian brewing to produce very fruit esters and spicy phenols.
