Its is more than a dubbel and less than a Quadrupel, its the triple! This is a classic Belgian style perfected by Trappist Monks. It's spicy flavor has hints of pepper and clove with the sweet taste of light sugar. This beer might not be as dark at a Quadrupel, but it packs close to as much alcohol at 9.5%, so be careful. It is meant to be sipped not gulped. This beer has been brewed for hundreds of years and remains extremely popular today.

The Belgian "Tripel" is named so after the process of using 3 times the amount of malt as a standard Trappist beer. Tripels have a complex flavor and aroma profile with a nice, sweet finish, courtesy of the generous amount of pale malt and high alcohol.
