The Bertinchamps range includes the traditional trio of triple, blonde and brune. The beers are brewed with well water, malt from locally grown brewing barley, European hop varieties and a special yeast strain; no herbs are added to these.
Bertinchamps Triple is a rounded and extremely quaffable degustation beer. Aromas of flowers, freshly mown hay and roasted grains are reminiscent of the farm where the brewery is based.
The fertile Haspengouw soil vibrates in the glass. Bertinchamps Triple is a well-balanced, mild beer with a subtle, initial taste of caramel and hop bitters that flows into the finish.
Triples are a specialty of Belgian brewers. Belgian triples are predominantly golden-blonde in colour, slightly darker than the strong blond beers, and have a high alcohol volume.
Originally the term ‘tripel/triple’ was only used for Trappist beers, but it has now become a generic term for beers with higher quantities of brewing ingredients. These strong beers taste of malt and/or hop bitters.
Modern triples are fruity and dry with plenty of carbon dioxide and a lovely bitterness. The style remains very popular with Belgian beer drinkers.
Bertinchamps Triple is a top-fermented beer.
Bertinchamps Triple is brewed with water drawn from their own well, yeast, local barleymalt and Central European hops.
