Brewed at Omer Vander Ginste brewery, Tripel LeFort is a golden blonde beer of 8.8% ABV and sets itself apart through its crisp, fruity aroma and beautifully rounded full flavour. The top-fermenting yeast used for Tripel LeFort results in a beer with vanilla-clove aromas as well as a fruity taste of bananas and red apples. Pleasant hints of citrus, lime and roses make this into a balanced beer that is intriguingly complex at the same time.
A beer with body… the full flavour combined with the alcohol give you a warm feeling that slowly eases away.

The Silly brewer’s latest creation, the Triple Swaf, is a blonde beer that has re-fermented in the bottle. It is based on a recipe that is 100% original. On tasting this triple you will be struck by its 8% ABV with zesty aromas of coriander, followed by a subtle bitterness that nevertheless makes its presence felt. All this comes with a full-mouthed taste and a lovely lingering finish. An exceptional beer must have an exceptional glass and so the brewery opted for a prestigious glass on a tall stem. Taste this beer and you are won over straight away.
Voted the ‘Best Belgian Blond Beer of Wallonia’ in 2012. And one of the ‘Best Belgian Triples’ by the trade magazine Vino. Goliath is brewed according to the traditional method used by our ancestors with the finest malts and hops. With its rich balanced taste, Goliath triple is a source of vitality and strength that will delight the true beer connoisseur.
Ath, Belgium, the City of Giants, is famous for its annual Parade of Giants. Every year, Goliath – whose name is pronounced ‘Gouyasse’ in the local dialect – leads the parade. The Brasserie des Géants (Giants’ Brewery), in Ath, didn’t think long before naming its first brew ‘Gouyasse.’
Goliath is 9% alcohol by volume, a little more red in the face than your average tripel (almost an amber, really). It’s nicely balanced with a bracing hop note versus a solid malt wallop. Goliath is the only Tripel in Belgium that is all-malt – without any sugar or other additives in. (Everyone else uses some sugar to ‘thin out’ their Tripels, which gives them alcohol, without the body that you normally get from malt.) . That means Goliath starts out a bit sweeter than some… But over time, as the live yeast in the bottle do their work. It gets drier and more punchy. The first batch, after about half a year in the bottle, is about where we want it, but it will probably become a greater beer as time goes by. We recommend that you check in on Goliath every once in a while.
With the addition of coriander and wheat malt, it is reminiscent of a wheat beer. A nicely balanced and easy session beer. Slightly hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. Citrus, malts and other grains are in the aroma.Bit of graininess too. Taste is quite smooth and creamy. Some lemon, initial bitterness. Finish is very much Belgian yeasty and creamy. Bubblegum and sweetness. Very smooth and surprisingly nice.
Golden colour with small partcles floating around, huge beige fluffy head, which leaves nice lacing. Aroma is strong fruits along with some slight acidicness. Flavour is acidic fruits along with slight hints of yeast and alcohol. Also quite much honey and sweet candy in it. Aftertaste remains mainly alcoholic and fruity with a touch of spices. Quite interesting beer.
