This is my first Westmalle Tripel (9.5%) which is said to be the founding beer of the Tripel style and by trying this tonight I have come to realise that the enjoyment and buzz from learning about beer is experiencing the multitude of styles for the first time.
Sharing this live with experienced ‘beer people’ on twitter gives a new dimension to the learning curve and as beer is more accessible (unlike wine or whisky) you don’t have to spend a fortune to sample some of the best that are available. I have had Trappist beer before, but only now after this Tripel I have come to fully appreciate the range of flavours. So do yourself a favour and go grab a Trappist beer and appreciate a taste of history.
