Karmeliet Tripel Abbey

Type: belgian tripel
Origin: Buggenhout, Belgium
Price €2.70 per 0.25 L

This might be the best beer I have ever consumed. This is another Snuffel Hostel beer, and I had a few more of these at other bars in Belgium since its so damn good. This comes from a 17th century recipe from the Old Carmelite monastery, but all you need to know is this is a great 400 year old recipe. The color is a very light golden and the head is quite frothy. The smell is a wonderfully powerful wheat, and the flavors are incredibly light. On the finish, some spicy coriander notes pop in.
