L’Assoiffé 10

In 16th century Belgium, the capacity of the mash tun, the vessel used to mix the malted barley with water, was used to calculate the tax on beer. In order to pay less taxes, the monks used as much barley as possible, brewing a tastier, stronger ale. That process and he use of newer, paler malts gave birth, in 1934, to the modern tripel and later on to our Assoiffé – 10 – tripel, a golden ale with candied citrus and yellow fruits aromas and silky sweet flavors adding a mellow, almost honeyish ending. Heaven is near!
