The monks of the Benedictine Monastery of Christ in the Desert in Abiquiu, New Mexico, brew this gold-honey color Belgian Style Abbey Tripel Ale each year in limited quantities, using whole native hops grown at the monastery. Monks' Abbey Tripel Ale Reserve is distinctly fruity and spicy. The yeast lends notes of apricot, peach and plum. The hops are well balanced and add a slight earth/spice flavor before the finish. The barley malts provide a rich quality up-front, and a round fullness in the middle. The finish is clean and dry with light hints of citrus and mint. Like all of our Monks' Ales, our Tripel is "made with care and prayer".
