Jopen Trinitas Tripel (330ml Bottle)
November 11th 2009 is our 15th anniversary. To celebrate this we brewed Jubeljoop III. We let our consumers decide what kind of beer it should be. Triple has won with 36% of the votes, second was IPA with 24%. Of course we gave this triple our own touch. This 9% triple was based on the recipe for our historic Hoppenbier (recipe dated 1501). Jubeljoop III will be availabe from November 11th 2009 til November 11th 2010. Brewed with barley and rye.
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.
