Brewed by the Boelens family in the village of Belsele in the Waasland region of Belgium, an agricultural area south-west of Antwerp.
Kris Boelens is today's owner and brewer, taking over the beer distribution from his father in 1980 - upgrading the family's old brewery, installing new stainless steel tanks. His first commercial speciality beer Bieken was brewed in 1993, an ale sweetened with honey.
Now on with the Klok, pours a hazy deep yellow with a finger width, creamy white head that soon settles down to a constant thin covering.
Fantastic deep aroma fills the glass - pine like hops, citrus, wheat, banana and also a spicy/biscuit bite.
Taste backs up that wonderful aroma - malty, citrus, grassy hops, spices (clove) and a flowery perfume in the finish. Lively carbonation provides a nice lasting mouthfeel.......simply an excellent Tripel.
