The traditionally Bruges city beer, powerful and bittersweet. Brugge Tripel has a beautiful golden color and a sturdy, rocky foam that leaves a drawing of Bruges lace on the glass. The aroma has a typical phenolic smoked taste. The taste is bitter, rich and creamy. Brugge Tripel undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle. During the filling a quantity of sugar and yeast is added which in the 'warm room' is fermented to alcohol and carbon dioxide. That is why Brugge Tripel has a high level of carbon dioxide that gives extra flavor to the beer. The yeasts at the bottom of the bottle protect the beer against oxidation and thus against rapid aging of the taste. Because of the yeast present, the flavors evolve with time. This is one of the reasons why Brugge Tripel is a real storage beer.
