Westmalle Tripel is credited with introducing the term Tripel for their golden strong pale ale. It is a clear Trappist beer, golden-yellow in color, with amazingly fruity aromas of ripe banana and a lovely, subtle nose of hops. This full-bodied beer offers finesse and elegance, with a mild taste and a creamy mouthfeel, yielding bitter notes supported by fruit aromas. The complex character of a Westmalle Tripel is derived from the slow brewing process and its re-fermentation in the bottle. 9.5% ABV.
