Tripel Karmeliet 75cl + 2 glasses gift set
Triple Karmeliet is one of the greatest Belgian classics. It’s based on a recipe from 1695 when it was produced in a Carmelite abbey in the Flemish city Dendermonde. 300 years later it was the inspiration for family brewery Bosteels when they decided to start brewing a three-grain beer as its next specialty. Tripel Karmeliet was born!
This Belgian triple ale combines three grains (wheat, oats and barley) to create a robust and smooth beer, with final fermentation in the bottle. Karmeliet is a strong beer (ABV 8.4%) but the alcohol content is as balanced and refined as every other aspect of this beer.
Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined golden beer with a beautiful clarity. It will form an impressively voluminous and creamy head that lasts for a long time. The aroma has hints of vanilla mixed with citrus and bananas. An excellent introduction to the amazing taste you are about to receive: creamy, fruity and spicy all at once. A balanced brew, mixing the sweet with the bitter and the spicy with the fruit.
Tripel Karmeliet won the World Beer Award in 2008 for the "Worlds Best Ale", the greatest recognition a brewery can have!
