Arend Tripel: A delight for all senses!
Arend tripel is the masterpiece of the Arend beer range of Brewery De Ryck (consisting of Arend blond - double, winter and Tripel). This outstanding beer was rewarded as the best Tripel in Europe at the European beer star competition last year in Nürnberg.
This beer pours a beautiful clear gold blond, honoring its home brewery as ‘Arend’ refers to the original name of brewery De Ryck: Brewery ‘De gouden arend’ (the golden eagle) which was founded in 1886 and is a tribute to its founder Gustaaf De Ryck!
The beer has a white foam and nice sparkle.
By swirling the beer in your glass a rather surprising banana like scent dominates at first, meeting with the sour aromas of pineapple giving it a mediterranean fruit perfume. Combined with the observable alcohol and subtle bitter scent of hops this results in a sultry aroma.
- Taste and aftertaste:
The mouth feel is full and intense, with a creamy, silky sensation. The flavor is determined by a combination of subtle hoppy bitterness/spiciness and pleasant fruitiness without being overly sweet. It has a very balanced and enjoyable bitter finish that lingers briefly.
- Food pairing:
Thanks to the subtle bitterness our Arend tripel is an ideal appetite stimulant aperitif!
