Maredsous 10 Tripel
From the Makers of Maredsous – This golden-bodied triple is redolent with a festive sparkle, complex aroma, lush body and creamy head. Sweetness and fruitiness join hoppy spiciness in a balanced, long, warm finish. This is strong ale, but the balance, finish, and velvety smoothness make this 10% brew smooth and quaffable.
