Brouwerij Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet

Crofty's Beer Blog

Day 28, and from the same people who bring you Kwak (you know the beer with the funky glass) comes this Belgian Tripel. The beer is brewed utilising 3 grains, Wheat, Oats and Barley from a 335 year old recipe and is bottle re-fermented (assuming this refers to bottle conditioned).

It pours a beautiful golden colour, high clarity with a reasonable level of carbonation and a large white head which pours over the side of the glass. I detect some banana and citrus aromas on the nose, more aligned with a witbier than other tripels I have tasted.

The flavour is lightly fruity, some alcohol notes, a little lemon on the finish, underlying banana possibly some malt sweetness, but finishing relatively dry. a great slow drinker on a cool evening. 4 points, one of my favourite Tripels for it’s slight differences.
