Belgian Triples can be deceptively smooth and refreshing, with their strong alcohol content sneaking up on you like a corner on a two lane road that gets tighter half way through. Our Belgian Triple is a strong Belgian Ale with a rich dry estery character that gives some warning of its strength. Unlike some(almost blonde) commercial examples of this style, our Belgian Triple is amber in color, and quite dry in the finish, with the sweetness balanced as much with an estery yeast flavor as with hops. Alcohol: 7.7%, IBU’s 30
Includes 12 pounds of Belgian extract and pale beet sugar, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.083 Ease of Brewing: Intermediate
Save a lot of money. Belgian ales of this strength and quality sell for $8.00 and up per 24 ounce bottle in a liquor store. You can brew the equivalent of 24 twenty four ounce bottles of William's Belgian Triple for around $2.00 a bottle!
This shows our Triple after only 7 days in the bottle. It is a little yeasty here, and clears out more completely in 2 to 3 weeks.
