Tripel is a term used in the Low Countries to describe a strong ale. The term was notably used in 1956 by the Trappist brewery at Westmalle to rename their strongest beer. The modern origin of tripels lies in Belgium, in the 1930s. Today these beers are associated with Belguim style ales with a deep golden color, soft maltiness, and intriguing yeast stamp.
