Belgian-Style Tripel Beer
Belgian-Style Tripels are a type of beer that originated in Belgium. They are characterized by their strong alcohol content, often upwards of 9% ABV, and their sweet, fruity flavour.
Belgian Tripels are usually bottle-conditioned, meaning that they undergo a second fermentation in the bottle, which further contributes to their complex flavour profile. Belgian Tripels are often considered to be one of the finest types of beer available and are highly sought after by beer lovers around the world. If you’re looking for a beer that is both strong and flavorful, a Belgian-Style Tripel is a perfect choice.
