What is a tripel ale?

Tripels. A tripel is a Belgian style of beer. Our take on the style is golden, balanced, and has a wide array of yeast-derived aromas. Usually clocking in at a higher (for beer) alcohol content, you'll often find tripels in the 8%-10% ABV range. That balance of aromas is key to almost all Belgian styles of beer.

Why is a tripel called a tripel?

History. The term Tripel comes from the Low Countries (now Netherlands and Belgium); though the origin of the term is unknown. In 1956, the recipe was modified by the head brewer of Westmalle, Brother Thomas, by the addition of more hops, and it then took on the name Tripel.
