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.

Haven't brewed it yet
It is in the secondary fermenter.
Have to wait a while.
It's still conditioning in the secondary fermenter -- two months is a long time to wait, but I am patient and will do as you instruct. But when I transferred it to the carboy, I tasted it (of course). This may be the best beer I have ever made! I have to wait to see.
I am not sure why I had to buy extra yeast. Most kits come with yeast. I had to buy extra which came in 2 packets. I am not sure what I am going to be doing with the other packet. I also think that it did not come with priming sugar
