A Belgian tripel is a strong Belgian ale that is a marriage of spicy and fruity flavors supported by a soft malt character, originally popularized by the Trappist monastery at Westmalle. The flavor can be a bit peppery, or like cloves in character, with fruity notes also. Those flavors come from using a specialty yeast. This beer is strong, but very easy drinking with a fairly light body. Drink like a monk with our Belgian tripel. 

All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!

Style Overview: 
The "Tripel" got it's name from the process of brewing 3 times the malt of a standard Trappist beer. Tripels are typically light gold in color with a high alcohol content, with a complex aroma and flavor profile and sweet finish, brought on by the generous helpings of pale malt and higher alcohol content.

    Belgian Tripel

    Not too complex to make, simple ingredients, let the yeast work their magic, and this makes a wonderfully complex beer.

    This is the first kit that I've purchased or made from HBS. I followed the instructions and hit my pre-boil gravity, OG and FG on the nose. The resulting beer is still carbonating but I've stolen a couple of samples and it is wonderful! I did oxygenate it for 90 seconds and made a 2L yeast starter. I will brew again without hesitation. Fermented at 68 deg. F and let it free rise to 74 deg. F. after about 4 days. Wonderful, fruity and estery Tripel! Nice work, guys!
