Tripel Karmeliet

I have to start off with one of my favorite beers.  Part of what I love about this beer so much is the gorgeous tulip shaped glass. It’s really a beauty…one I would happily steal if I had the chance. *ho hum*  But on to the beer…this is a typical tripel style Belgian beer with a sweet malty flavor, peppered with citrus.  If you like Belgian style beers, this is a must to try and one of the easiest to like.  This beer is in regular rotation for me and can be found at many places in SF, most notably La Trappe.  One thing to note, this beer has a ABV (alcohol by volume) of 8.4% which is on the higher end (although not unusual for Belgian beers) so be careful with how many you drink if you’re not used to these high ABV beers. 😉
