Often called the best Tripel in the world, Tripel Karmaliet has won endless awards. It’s brewed using barley, wheat and oats which give it a smooth mouthfeel and more complex malt body. On top of that the brewery layers banana-like esters from the yeast and a little hop spiciness that adds a quinine-like dryness to the finish. A stunning example of the style.
You may not have heard of Bosteels Brewery, but they brew one of the most iconic Belgian beers – Pauwel Kwak. The beer itself is delicious, sweet and caramelly with an almost liquorice-like finish, but the glass that makes this beer even more famous.
