Tripel Karmeliet is a labour of love. Of patience. Of passion. For over 7 generations we have worked tirelessly, continuously perfecting our craft to create this singular award winning beer.
Brewed using a 3-grain recipe rediscovered from the 1679 Carmelite monastery, Tripel Karmeliet blends nature’s gifts of barley, oats and wheat to produce a multi-layered tripel, refined yet balanced, with soft fruity notes and a surprisingly delicate taste.
This timeless beer is the embodiment of our relentless pursuit of beauty.
This is Tripel Karmeliet.
7 Generations, 3 Grains, 1 Recipe.
Serving temperature: 6-9ºC
Continue pouring in the centre of the glass bringing the glass almost to a vertical stand.
If too little froth forms while pouring bring the bottle a little higher.
Ideally served, the head must cover from the top of the lilies to the brim of the glass. Leave approximately 5mm of beer in the bottle (which contains a yeast deposit). If you want, you can add the yeast deposit yourself afterwards
Tripel Karmeliet is a classic golden Belgian Tripel with a distinct character from the use of three grains.
Appearance: Rich and refined deep Golden colour with a creamy white foam
Aroma: Very refined & complex; with hints of vanilla mixed with herbs and citrus
Flavour: A medium-bodied beer that is delicately warming. There is a freshness from the wheat and a creamy mouthfeel from the oats. Rich notes and soft sweetness of lemon cake join with hints of coriander seed and hay and a quinine-like dryness on the finish.
Tripel Karmeliet can also be enjoyed at the culinary level. A number of famous cooks from equally fine restaurants have given their imagination free rein to put together for you these recipes, which you can easily make at home. Delicious.
