Tripel Karmeliet

A treble enjoyment with Tripel Karmeliet.  Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde.  Written over 300 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats and barley.  The name Tripel Karmeliet thus referst to both its origin and its in-bottle refermentation.  From many trial brews of multi-grain tripels carried out our brewery in the 90's, it appears that the particular historic combination of the 3 kinds of grain still remains the ideal blend.
