Great Belgian tripel made with oat and wheat in addition to the normal barley malt.
Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined and complex golden blonde beer with a fantastic creamy head. These characteristics derive not only from the grains used but also from restrained hopping with Styrians and the fruity nature (banana and vanilla) of the house yeast. Aroma has hints of vanilla mixed with citrus aromas. Tripel Karmeliet has not only the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats together with a spicy lemony almost quinine dryness.
Like its sibling Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet is based on an old recipe, in this case from the Carmelite convent from 1679, though it's likely the story is more historically accurate than the recipe.
Sadly in 2016 Brouwerij Bosteels ceased to be independent, becoming wholly owned by AB-Inbev
