The next step up from Dubbel in the monastic beer classification, Tripel is higher in alcohol than Dubbel but is actually lighter in color and body. The addition of clear candi sugar dilutes the malt bill, which helps preserve the golden color and makes the body deceptively light for a beer of this strength. Spicy and fruity with a gentle sweetness and hints of alcohol throughout leading to a dry and mildly bitter finish.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

3.0 / 5.01 ReviewA Strong BrewCalculated this to have reached 9.8% ABV, almost 20 proof! This was sort of an experiment to see if I really brew such a strong beer.
The alcoholic content actually is a bit of a negative. The flavor is actually quite nice, but the strong alcohol flavor does cut through and makes it a little out of balance. Turned off some people. This is an acceptable brew if you want to get drunk fast, as one 12 oz bottle gives you a surprising buzz. Accept for that, no big deal. Will pass on re-doing this recipe.December 26, 2016Purchased
