Since 1856 the monks have also been brewing a dark Trappist beer along with their table beer. The Tripel is called the 'mother of all tripels'. This type of beer was first brewed in Westmalle Abbey in 1934 when the new brewing hall came into use. The current formula has stayed practically unchanged since 1956. Westmalle Tripel is a clear, golden yellow Trappist beer that undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle. It is a complex beer with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional beer, with a great deal of finesse and elegance. And with a splendid long aftertaste.
This beer is generally served in 33 cl bottles. Tripel is also available in 750ml bottles. It is remarkable that the beer matures differently in these larger bottles. The fruity aroma is somewhat softer and riper, and the beer gets a light touch of vanilla.
Barley malts; unfertilised cones of the female hop; dark liquid sugar, Westmalle yeast
