Since the Cistercian monks of the Westmalle Abbey first brewed their Tripel in 1934, it has been imitated by many but never surpassed in its quality. It remains the gold standard of the style and a beer revered for its elegance and finesse.
Much like fine Champagne, this delicate Trappist ale undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle, creating a soft texture and subtle yeast character. It is a complex beer with a fruity aroma and nuanced hop character. The dry finish makes Westmalle tripel a surprisingly refreshing beer and great accompaniment to roasted pork with grilled asparagus and mustard vinaigrette.
