About Tripel Karmeliet
Tripel Karmeliet name comes from the Carmelite convent in Dendermonde, Belgium. It was first brewed in 1679 by an old recipe developed at this convent. The recipe was revived in 1996 and by Brouwerij Bosteel and is unique due to the use of three grains; barley, wheat and oats.
While travelling in Belgium, we've been impressed with how many competing brewmasters cite Tripel Karmeliet as one of their favorite Tripels. It's rapidly attaining status as one of the new classics of the Belgian brewing scene. Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. It has a restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. Tripel Karmeliet uses Styrian hops and a yeast strain that produces slightly fruity flavor.
Available in 11.2oz; 750ml and 30L kegs.
