The next step up from Dubbel in the monastic beer classification, Tripel is higher in alcohol than Dubbel but is actually lighter in color and body. The addition of clear candi sugar dilutes the malt bill, which helps preserve the golden color and makes the body deceptively light for a beer of this strength. Spicy and fruity with a gentle sweetness and hints of alcohol throughout leading to a dry and mildly bitter finish.
Recommended: >2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

Had a Belgian Tripel in the past that was a lot better Won’t buy this one again
The instruction sheet for brewing has changed. The print in smaller and not as easy to follow like before.
I am having a difficult time getting it to carbonate, and it turned out darker than it should have. Good flavor, but the additional carbonation would make it really good.
