A clear golden-yellow Trappist beer with a billowy white head. Rich and fruity flavours are delivered as a result of a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Hop on the nose is followed by soft and creamy flavours with a hint of bitterness across the fruit laden aroma. Elegance and finesse lead into a delicious long-lasting dry finish.
Classic Belgian Trappist ale. 9.5% ABV.
Beer connoisseurs call Westmalle Tripel the “mother of all tripels” as the first Tripel designated ale was brewed inside the abbey walls in 1934. Small changes were made over the next 20 years in order to perfect this new style after which it has remained unchanged. Should be served at 8°-14°C.
Enjoy this beer with the selection of creamy Belgian cheeses.
The history of Westmalle Abbey begins in the 1790s when a group of Cistercians, fleeing the French Revolution, founded a priory in an area which had seen centuries of devastation due to the bubonic plague and the 80 years war. With this establishment came farmland on which they produced many traditional products but it wasn’t until 1836 that the first beer was brewed. Initially the sale was only brewed for the needs of the community but in 1856 brothers began to sell the beer from the gates of the abbey. As demand increased so the Brewery underwent two expansions, in 1865 and 1897. With the Second World War came a time of devastation yet despite the difficulties which followed Westmalle was able to commercialise their beers to a degree which allowed them to spend generously on community outreach efforts both home and as far abroad as the Congo.
