What’s in Ename?

“Ale” is the quick answer to the question. I’ve got the Ename tripel here for this evening’s 40b40 tasting, which is number 21. More than halfway through the challenge...

Ename tripel seems a fairly standard Belgian ale to me, light amber and creamy tasting, with a yeasty undertone. Slightly sweet, and maybe not as knock-down alcoholic as some others (8.5%). There’s a hint of pineapple in this ale, too.

Not bad, really. I think I prefer it to the Westmalle tripel, actually.

The best thing about the Ename, however, is the logo -- probably one of the best of any beer so far. I’ll leave you with a close-up of it below.
