Belgian Style - Belgian Triple
The Belgian Triple belongs to the list of great beers of the world. Very well balanced between a full maltiness mouthfeel, a hoppy flavor and a fruity ester aroma of the top fermentation. Most tripels are so strong in aroma that tasters say: the splendid combination of yeast, malt and a fruity nose. Triples are refermented in the bottle, with special sugars. The amount of alcohol is increased by the addition of crystal sugar during the boil.

The amount of sugar is in relation with:
- residual sugar from main fermentation
- residual CO2
- the desired CO2 content e.g. 6‐7 g / lit. CO2
The amount of hop is also related to the isomerisation yield in the brewery.
