Tripel Karmeliet Hot
A treble enjoyment with Tripel Karmeliet.
Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery inDendermonde. Written over 30 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats and barley.
The name Tripel Karmeliet thus refers both to its origin and its in-bottle refermentation. From many trial brews of multi-grain tripels carried out at our brewery in the 90s, it appears that the particular historic combination of the 3 kinds of grain still remains the ideal blend.
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
Very refined and complex. 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 drynes
