22 Apr Day 14 (#30Beers30Days)
I love my ‘hood. East Atlanta is a fantastic locale. Pub drinkers converge here.
I’m with my fellow beer love and future food blogger Michelle. Tonight for day 14, I think, of my #30Beers30Days challenge, I’m drinking a LaTrappe Tripel (8% ABV).
Tripel ales are called as such b/c they’re made with three times more malt than standard Trappist ales. …And Trappist ales are called as such because they are a historical beer named after the Belgium monks that brewed them. This beer is brewed by the Dutch Koningshoeven Brewery founded in 1884. It’s a seriously complex ale. Thick – smells and tastes like burnt caramel.
Most surprising: the peppery finish. The LaTrappe Tripel is a serious beer. If you consider yourself a Belgium beer drinker… You better know all about LaTrappe!!
This is a very respectable beer. On day 14 or so of this #30Beers30Days challenge, LaTrappe Tripel gets an A.
