Westmalle Trappist Tripel

westtrap

 

The tripel style was originated at Westmalle starting in 1931; it was first sold in 1934. The name "tripel" probably comes from the protocol established by "dubbel" - it was the brewery's "third beer." There are hundreds of breweries producing tripels today, but a tripel will always be stronger and lighter-colored than a dubbel from the same brewery. Glowing orange-gold color, herbal aroma, and complex flavors that meld rich malt sweetness, warmth, hops, and powerful drinkability.

ABV: 9.5%  

Availability:

Westmalle Trappist Tripel is available year round.
