Brugge Tripel (330ml Bottle)
Brugge Tripel is the unsurpassed city beer of the people of Bruges. This beer has a well-rounded malt character, an aromatic hop character and a great complexity of flavours. The taste truly evoques the very best of Bruges!
This is an amber ale with a very full and original taste, thanks to a subtle mixture of first class malt and aromatic hops. Intense boiling causes the malt sugars to caramelise and produces its unique taste. It has a very rounded malt character, with warming alcohol, a perfumed hops character and a great complexity of tastes.
Like other abbey ales, Tripels are strong, yeasty-malty beers. But they are also pale, and have a notable hop profile. Hop bitterness may be higher than a typical abbey ale, up to 35IBUs. But the finish is where the hops really shine, as tripels should finish fairly dry. Otherwise, maltiness is still essential to the style, and the assertive yeast note typical of all abbey ales will be more apparent in tripels, since they do not have the rich dark malts to distract the palate. Alcohol flavours feature more prominently in Tripels that in just about any other style.
