Danish: Et samarbejdsbryg mellem Anders Kissmeyer og Hornbeer. Vi har ikke været helt tro mod stilarten “Belgisk Tripel” – vi synes lige, at man skal kunne se og smage, at vi har været her. Anders har haft gang i røgovnen – den har været tændt op 20 gange, for at vi havde tilstrækkeligt med røgmalt. Ja, og så har vi altså brugt lidt mørkere malte end normalt til Tripel. Men gæren er ægte belgisk trappist. Den er gæret ved moderat temperatur for at sikre så “ren” en smag som muligt. Øllet er blevet som vi ønskede. Ravfarvet og med en fin duft og smag fra den røgede malt. Den er temmelig kompleks, og vi er sikre på, at den fint tåler en længere lagring under gode forhold.
Og hvornår drikker man den så ? Bedst i godt selskab og måske med lidt røget mad. Husk lige vand til.
