Beer Style

Belgian, Top Fermented Tripel


The Beer

De Kanunnik is a genuine Tripel and as such, goes a step further in alcohol content in comparison with Wilderen Goud. This pleasant and fruity tripel has a full mouth feel and distinguishes itself through its malty aroma.

This four-grain triple is brewed using barley, wheat, oats and rye as well as three herbs and two types of fine hops, including an American aromatic hop. It is based on an original Wilderen “kanunnik” (canon’s) recipe.

The Wilderen Goud and the Kanunnik Tripel contain the same type of yeast, hence its fruity character. “Mild, slightly hopped and herbal”, is the verdict of brewer Mike.

This beer is also used in the distillation of Wilderen’s “Eau-de-Bière”. This is a proper “Eau-de-vie” of superior quality with a 32% ABV alcohol content. A perfect combination of distilling and brewing.


Alcohol

8.2% ABV

Fermentation

Top-fermentation. Re-fermented in the bottle.

Ingredients

Water, yeast, barley, wheat, oats, rye, three different herbs and two types of fine hops (of which one American aroma variety).

Colour & Transparency

Golden colour, slightly hazy to clear beer.


    Serving Temperature

    6 – 9 °C / 42.8 ° F – 48.2 °F

    Serving Glass

    Compared with the glass used for Wilderen Goud, this is of a more classic design and a genuine tripel glass. Very elegant with fine contours, eminently suitable to the beer for which it was designed. The glass also contains two hidden messages.


      Character, Tastes & Aromas

      Mild but herbal tripel, not a very pronounced after taste. The taste is reminiscent of citrus fruits with subtle touches of vanilla, banana, peach and wood with malts and candy sugar.

      Coriander is prominent amongst the herbs.


        Culinary

        This is a very versatile beer for culinary use or food pairing. Can be enjoyed with fish or meat dishes or added as an ingredient to certain recipes. It would benefit from a robust food pairing to bring out the taste.

        We are suggesting a combination with the acidic taste of vinaigrette or mustard, for example.


        Keeping and Storage

        This beer, like most other triples, will evolve in taste. The longer the beer is stored, the more its taste changes.

        After a while it will decrease in fruitiness and the taste of hops will diminish. This beer is brewed to be consumed at a young age.


        Availability

        Bottle ✔       On Tap
