The secret of the BRUGGE Tripel city beer is the unique composition of the ?gruut? blend of herbs and spices used to enrich its flavour and aroma. In Bruges, anyone brewing beer was obliged to purchase ?gruut? from the city?s herbs and spices shop, known as the ?Gruuthuse?. Jan van Brugge and his descendents, who later changed their name to Van Gruuthuse, had a monopoly on the sale of Bruges ?gruut? that lasted late into the 16th century. At the same time, taxes were levied to the Count of Flanders. In BRUGGE Tripel, this medieval tradition continues. Type Tripel Ingredients Water, barley malt, glucose syrup, hops, sugar, herbs, yeast Fermentation High fermentation - Re-fermented in the bottle Flavour Bitter, rich, creamy, spicy Color EBC: 12 Bitterness EBU: 28

    330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 8.7%. Clear and deep golden colour, large white head. Aroma of gruut spices, kandij sugar and Belgian ale yeast. Medium sweet and spicy flavour with the same elements as the aroma, low bitterness.

    Clear yellow color with celar white foam head. Bitter sweet smell and taste. Some caramel. Good beer that went well with a roast beef dinner. (Velp 201205)

    An excellent belgian tripel. Great pour resulting in a thick white head. Nice spices give it a great flavor and it feels great going down. Not too sweet and strong alcohol.

    Bottled. Copper coloured, small white head. Sweet caramellish malty nose with sugary hints. Flavour is sweet caramellish malts and cooked sugar. Lots of it. Sweet beer overall, but it's drinkable.

    red-amber colour with a fine creamy head and a nice lacing, aroma of haye and spices, notes of apple, creamy mouthfeel, lot of carbonation, dry malty and rough bitter finish - it is ok but not as good as the former version which was one of my old time favourite

    Slightly hazy old gold colour with slim off white head. Spicey and fruity aroma with some underlying malts. Sweet, herbal taste, with orange. Lightly bitter hoppy finish. Medium carbonation, dry, with well hidden alcohol. Good tripel.
