Brewed by bry.Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet is still made to an authentic 1679 beer recipe originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde.

Now for a bit of personal history, this beer (along with a few others like La Chouffe) is responsible for my love of Belgian beers, so it's one i have a soft spot for.

This outstanding beer pours a golden bronze with a huge fluffy white head that very slowly fades. Aroma is a mix of flowery citrus spice with a banana grain kick...a magnificent smelling beer.

Taste is fresh, spicy lemon with clove and banana again, very nice mouthfeel - carbonated, crisp yet smooth.

A beer that is regularly seen on most (Belgian) beer menus and with good reason, consistently good quality and a beer that would make a fantastic introduction into the wonderful world of Belgian beers.
