A really good Belgian Style Tripel is worth its weight in gold! One of my favorite American brewed (but Belgian Style) Tripel is the Golden Monkey, by Dogfish – but coming in a close second is Allagash Brewery’s Tripel. It’s so crisp and delicious with notes of banana and honey; if they weren’t 9%, I could drink them all day! When you drink a Belgian Style Tripel – make sure to drink it in the correct glass, as the fancy glass really does make a difference in the taste!
If you fine you like this style of beer, you may want to venture on the the Belgian brewed Tripels… which I’d recommend a Tripel Karmeliet… but that’s a cap picture and post for another day! Cheers!

Allagash Tripel is definitely a must try. And as far as Belgians, the Westmalle Tripel is AMAZING!

I haven’t tried the Westmalle… but I do love those Belgians – they don’t make bad beer, do they?
