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.

BreweryOmer Vander Ghinste
It all started in 1892, when Remi Vander Ghinste bought a house with accompanying buildings from a brewer for his 23-year-old son, Omer. That same year, the first barrels of Ouden Tripel (now VanderGhinste Oud Bruin) rolled out across the cobblestones of Bellegem. Omer delivered his beers by horse and cart in the region of Kortrijk. As brands didn’t exist at that time, he gave the beers his own name: the “bieren Omer Vander Ghinste”.
