Often showing a bit more body than Belgian Strong Pale Ales, Belgian Tripel beers are typically clear or hazy pale to deep gold color and display creamy white heads. Belgian and Abbey Ale yeasts generally produce pronounced fruity ester and spice characteristics, including notes of banana and clove. The alcohol may show itself more readily amid the flavors in Tripel beer, while pale malt sweetness and balancing hop bitterness round out what is customarily a beer offering complex aromas and flavors. The best Tripel beer is bottle-conditioned in the traditional manner.
