Our Belgian Tripel is a strong, high alcohol Belgian ale with fruity and spicy flavor profile with a soft malty character. Originally, the Belgian Tripel found it's popularity stemming from the Trappist monastery at Westmalle. Expect a bit of a peppery, clove-like flavor with notes of fruit brought on by the recommended yeasts. This beer packs a wallop with it's high alcohol content, but is easy to drink and has a lighter body.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
The Belgian "Tripel" is named so after the process of using 3 times the amount of malt as a standard Trappist beer. Tripels have a complex flavor and aroma profile with a nice, sweet finish, courtesy of the generous amount of pale malt and high alcohol.

I was pleased with the selections of Homebrew supply and ordered 5 different kits. Delivery was prompt; however all five kits were packaged in the same single wall box, with the individual ingredients packaged loose. When the box arrived it was crushed due to the weight and the loose ingredients in it. It was hard to tell if everything was in the box still and difficult to sort which ingredients went to which kit. It would have been much better to package each kit in it's own box and send separately or at least put the individual kits into a larger box rather than throw everything in loosely. Damaged shipping and haphazardly throwing everything together was a disappointing end to what had been a good experience. Homebrew's variety is good and the prices are competitive, but when it comes to packaging and shipping they have a long way to go to be competitive with other supply houses out there.
