St Bernardus Tripel
330 ml 8.0% alc
The St Bernardus Tripel, introduced in 1992, is a classic Belgian tripel. Perhaps surprisingly, its taste profile shows strong similarities with that of the St Bernardus Prior, which is brewed with largely the same ingredients. The main characteristics of the St Bernardus are touches of roast malt and, in the finish, impressions of banana. The St Bernardus Tripel is slightly maltier. Since 2010 the beers have been brewed using hops that St Bernardus grow themselves, right next to the brewery. This tripel has become very popular in its own region, the Westhoek.
