Westmalle Trappist Tripel, Tripel (Bottle - 11.2 oz)
Tripel / Belgium / 9.5%
Westmalle Trappist Tripel was first brewed in 1934 and the recipe has not changed since 1956. It is made with pale candy sugar and has a very pale color produced from a mash of light pilsner malts. Styrian Golding hops are used along with some German varieties and the classic Saaz pilsener hop. After a long secondary fermentation, it's bottled with a dose of sugar and yeast. This beer holds up well in the bottle over time and seems to soften with age.
