Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet

Triple Karmeliet_webTripel Karmeliet (8% ABV)Bosteels Brewery (in Buggenhout, Belgium) makes Triple Karmeliet.  Founded in 1791 by Evarist Bosteels, this brewery has been in the Bosteels family for seven generations.  In addition to Triple Karmeliet, Bosteels Brewery also makes Kwak and Deuce beers.  Triple Karmeliet is brewed based on a recipe from 1679 that originated in the Carmelite monastery.  Wheat, oat, and barley grains are used to make this beer that uses in-bottle refermentation as part of the process.  This beer pours a clear light golden color with white foam head consisting of tiny bubbles.  Triple Karmeliet has fruity ester aromas of honeyed orange and banana combined with wheat and malt.  The beer has a rich, medium to full-bodied feel in the mouth with pleasant carbonation.  Triple Karmeliet tastes of mango fruit and malt.  This is a good beer, but I think I need to try it again as it did not hold up to other reviews I have read.
