Belgian Tripel or Trippel

Strongly resembles a Strong Golden Ale but slightly darker and somewhat fuller-bodied. Usually has a more rounded malt flavor but should not be sweet.

Marriage of spicy, fruity and alcohol flavors supported by a soft malt character. Low to moderate phenols are peppery
in character. Esters are reminiscent of citrus fruit such as orange or sometimes lemon. A low to moderate spicy hop character
is usually found. Alcohols are soft, spicy, often a bit sweet and low in intensity. Bitterness is typically medium to
high from a combination of hop bitterness and yeast-produced phenolics. Substantial carbonation and bitterness lends a dry
finish with a moderately bitter aftertaste.

Commercial Examples:

Clarens Brewery apparently brews this on occasion.

What The Beersluts have to say:

Sorry buddies, we haven’t done a proper taste test on these beers yet!!
