Style: Tripel
 
Style Information
Belgian Tripels are highlighted by complex, spicy flavors. The color is generally pale to medium golden. The aroma has fruity/banana esters, with notes of sweetness and spices. The taste has balanced malt and hop notes, with a slightly sweet finish. The taste should also have subtle but notable alcohol presence. Feel should be medium bodied. Due to the high alcohol content, this style also tends to age well over a period of years. ABV should range from 7% to 10% or slightly higher. IBUs should be somewhat low, in the range of 25 to 35.
