Westmalle Tripel is a beautiful beer made with pale candy sugar. The Tripel definitely produces a warming of the stomach and a glow to the head. It has a very pale colour produced from a mash of light pilsener malts. Styrian Goldings hops are used along with some German varieties and the classic Saaz pilsener hop. After a long secondary fermentation, the Tripel is bottled with a dose of sugar and yeast. It is a memorable drink with hints of fruit and pepper. This beer holds up well in the bottle over time and seems to soften with age. Pours a hazy honey gold colour with a light beige huge lasting head and produces some great lace. Aroma included faint hay fields, some citrus, faint spice, woody hops, malt and candy, yeast and more fruit as it warmed up. Flavour overall still not quite as complex as the Dubbel. Start is faint sweet with full hoppy bitter, medium body and lovely dry clean finish. As to be expected, the alcohol content is more pronounced than the Dubbel but it's still a great beer.
