Style Family Snapshot
An ale that is traditionally brewed by or with Belgian abbeys and is modeled on the styles brewed by the six Trappist Abbeys. Brewing abbeys often had a tradition to brew full-bodied beers for consumption as 'liquid bread' during the days of Lent. These beers are top-fermented, dark amber to gold in color, full-bodied, strong, and fruity. The beer is bottle-conditioned and can contain lots of residual sugars. These are typically available in three strengths designated in English as single, double, and tripel.
