Belgian Tripel Beer / Triple Beer
An original Belgian Tripel beer - or Triple beer - is a beer produced with more than twice the normal quantity of malt. Nowadays it stands for a gold-coloured beer with a malty, alcoholic and sometimes slightly sweet taste. This type of Belgian beer contains 7-10% alcohol volume. The primary fermention is followed by a secondary fermentation at 8- 10°C lasting a fortnight. After filtering and bottling, Belgian Triple beer is refermented in the bottle during 3 weeks at 21°C. The name “Tripel” is often used by brewers to describe their strong pale-coloured ales. Traditional Belgian Triple beers are bottle conditioned and taste fruity and complex. Serve slightly chilled.
