The Chimay Cinq Cents, with its golden hue, offers a rare balance of mellowness and bitterness. (Description provided by company)
Slightly darker than a typical Pilsner, the Tripel is usually slightly hazy, due to bottle conditioning. The local yeasts give this ale fruity banana and clove-like flavors, while the pale malts (and occasional addition of Belgian candi sugar) give the beer a sweeter finish and light body. Bitterness can be high for such a light body and color, but the malt balances nicely. Alcohol can be high, and range from slightly noticeable to dangerously subtle.
Best served cool, 46-54 degrees, in a beer snifter, stemmed tulip glass, or a chalice.
Working with Church Street Wine Shop, Straight to Ale put a tripel into chardonnay barrels for this delightful release.
Our Tripel features malt and yeast that set the fresh aroma of baked brioche against the sweet scent of ripened banana. This relatively light-bodied ale is fermented with a distinct Belgian abbey ale strain, then bottle conditioned with extra sugar and yeast for at least two weeks.
It could have been a single, but it’s so much more. This rum barrel aged Belgian Tripel is named for the 3 Bagger -- the true team player, the go-getter, the unabashed risk-taker -- the one who knows when to stretch something good into something even better.
A strong Belgian-style ale that has a long fermentation period using classic Belgian yeasts. The nose contains banana and citrus notes, while a complex fruitiness and light warming sensation are experienced upon tasting.
Jacque was an intrepid boy. He was always exploring. One day he fell into a Trappe. A dirty trappe. A dirty Jacque’s Trappe.
This Tripel ale will grow hair in places you don't want. Our Tripel is a golden colored ale that has a fruity spicy flavor that finishes a bit sweet. The Devil's Tripel is light tasting from the addition of candy sugar. We add just the right amount of hops to balance out the sweetness.
This style of beer has a little something for everyone. Although it stays true to its Belgian roots with a signature fruity sweetness that lingers on the tongue, there’s still a hint of bitterness which mimics the common characteristic of an IPA.
Look: A more coppery appearance and maintained, antique or light with a good persistent head.
Nose: The nose is relatively discreet and elegant with fermented touches and fine yeasts. Quite fresh.
