Product Description

Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined and complex golden-to-bronze brew with a fantastic creamy head. These characteristics derive not only from the grains used but also from restrained hopping with Styrians and the fruity nature (banana and vanilla) of the house yeast. Aroma has hints of vanilla mixed with citrus aromas. Tripel Karmeliet has not only the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats together with a spicy lemony almost quinine dryness.

Drizly Expert Notes

Tripel Karmeliet Belgian Ale is on nearly every brew master’s list of best Belgian-style tripels in the world, and that is saying a lot. While the beer has actually only been around since the mid 1990’s, it is brewed using a recipe that has been around since 1679, just adjusted for modern malting and brewing techniques. The tripel style has been popular in Belgium for ages as it is one of the beers traditionally brewed by monks. The style is a lighter colored beer that achieves a noteworthy alcohol presence through the use of candi sugar along with barley during the fermentation process. Particular to Karmeliet’s variety, they use barley, wheat, and oats which give this beer a uniquely rich body and flavor. Using proper glassware with a true Belgian beer is an absolute must, but if you don’t own a Tripel Karmeliet glass, seek out your best tulip or wine glass to give the beer the respect that it so deserves. Poured out it is a somewhat hazy yellow in color with bubbles rapidly rising from the bottom of the glass up to a seemingly never ending fluffy white head. The aroma is packed with yeasty spice derived from their proprietary yeast along with fruit-like aromas of pears and bananas, lemon zest and pink peppercorns. The flavor is momentous. Loads of peppery spice, ripe green pears and sweet malts. The wheat and oats give a big, glorious body to the beer, making it extremely satisfying to sip. Tripel Karmeliet Belgian Ale is a beer that will elevate your evening. Sipped out of a stemmed glass, it can easily substitute a fine wine or a warm glass of brandy. Enjoy a glass paired with a rich bowl of stew on a cold night or try it with a feast of baked chicken, garlic potatoes, and honey roasted root vegetables. Enjoy a glass to the sounds of Bach while reclining in a leather chair or toast with it at the dinner table to a job well done.
