Made with three grains--wheat, oats, and barley--this golden-coloured Belgian abbey tripel ale is a perfect balance of bitterness and malty sweetness. This beer has bold aromas and flavours of bananas, a subtle wheat spiciness, vanilla, bubblegum, orange, and florals. With a typically dry finish and a smooth medium-light body, the Karmeliet Tripel has a pleasantly bright and lingering character.
Bosteels brewery is located in the town of Buggenhout, Belgium and has been in the same family for over 200 years. The recipe for Karmeliet Tripel dates back to a Carmelite abbey in 1679; the original recipe was discovered by an older generation of the Bosteel family and is still used in the same proportions to this day.
Bosteels brewery is older than the Belgian state itself, with a history reaching back to 1791. This family-owned brewery in the heart of Flanders has been brewing without interruption in the same location ever since, and is currently under the leadership of the 7th generation, Mr. Antoine Bosteels.
Their portfolio consists of just 3 beers although they're some of the most iconic in the world. Kwak, with its famous long glass, Tripel Karmeliet made with 3 grains, and the sparkling DeuS which is only around a decade old. With Bosteels brewers devoted to this unique range, its no wonder they win awards year after year.
