Ostensibly the only Belgian tripel brewed with three grains (oats, barley & wheat). Bosteels' Tripel Karmeliet is a modern classic, one that inspires us to keep brewing, and of course, to keep drinking. Hopefully we all stop a little short of what happens to this guy. But who knows, with this one on draft at the East Nashville Beer Festival, it might get loud!
What he said.
The recipe is from 1679, and Bosteels has been around for more than 200 years. With that kind of provenance, I guess I should expect nothing less. And yet still, every next first sip comes over me as powerfully as the last. I swoon for this one.
