Karmeliet Tripel (ABV 8.4%) uses a recipe based on one created in the 17th century by the Carmelite monks of Dendermonde. It calls for three types of grain—wheat, oats, and barley. Pours medium gold and clear with a creamy white head; the mix of grains gives a dry, crisp and refreshing flavor, with aromas of citrus and spice. A restrained hop bitterness balances flavors of toffee and malt. Reserve 2019 corked Magnum bottle (1.5 liters).
