An Abbey Tripel brewed by
Brasserie d’Achouffe (Moortgat)
Had on tap. It pours a cloudy yellow with a huge foamy white head. This is such a sharp and crisp beer that it is nearly flawless for its style – if this even falls into one category. It is more complex too then what comes across on first taste. It is dry and hoppy and quite carbonated. It is the champagne of beers – for real. You don’t pick up on the alcohol content as it is smooth in that respect. It really need to be thought about to be appreciated.
