I'm very surprising with this Tripel made near my hometown and are a tripel better than others with more tradition and made for hundred years. The smell is not the best thing of this beer. The taste is sweet and fruited and the mouthfeel is great. The white collar is as a tripel can be. As a newborn and with some little corrections it deserves a 5.0. Of course I will drink it more times.

I was at Porto Alegre´s Bierkeller earlier tonight. It was at the request of the owner that I drink this beer with my friend (and the owner), which he says is the best beer produced in Brazil. It´s expensive, but it´s only my second time in Brazil, so splurge! 750 ml green champagne bottle, corked and caged, On to the beer:

A very heady beer. Pop the cork, pour into a glass, and create a mess on the table. Lots of head on top this darker than golden sunshine colored beer, and it retains much of its head. To my surprise, the aroma is a lot drier that expected. The beer features sugary fruits and a sweet aroma, both of which are more obvious as one gives it more time to breathe.

It uses the same ingredients as Tripel Karmeliet, though the tastes are somewhat different. It tastes like a tripel crossed with champagne. Quite dry overall, a little bit sweet, with notes of lemon, apricot skins, and a bit of the bubbly. The alcohol is not found anywhere. It holds a high amount of carbonation, but it´s not going to pelt your palate to death with bubbles. Dry in the finish.

As good as this beer was, this was only the 3rd most liked beer by me, which tells you how good of a night I had at the Bierkeller (Wäls Quadruppel and The Abyss <which I brought from California to share> were better IMO). With the US Dollar in the shitter, this beer will cost you between US$30-50! Not a beer I plan to get again for myself because of the price, but for those looking for a different kind of tripel, or want to try the first tripel made in Brazil, go for it.

Well, what can be said about my favourite brazilian beer and one of my favourites all over the world ?
It's been a great pleasure to follow the history of this superb beer, from its very beginning. I've been following it since its first production, and the evolution is amazing. Brewed under the belgian carmelite recipe by the union of passionate brewers and a great brewmaster, it rivals some of the best belgian tripels we got. It has just got a 9 out of 10 grade from Bill Simpson himself. Ask him what beer would be 9.5...

A: Sunset orange colour, gently hazy, extremely dense and beautiful head.
S: Slightly medicinal, apricots, peaches, citric, tangerine, orange, yeast, very, very complex.
T: Apricots, ripe peaches, malt, great balance between alcohol / malt / bitterness (which is not intense, according to the style); and great structure.
M: Gentle and warming alcohol (9,0% abv), dense, very pleasant finish.
D: It´s a very balanced beer, which makes you want more and more, despite its complexity and the alcohol. Having this beer all over the world is just a matter of time.

This beer is made with pilsen malt, roasted malt, wheat malt, flaked oats and sugar. Brewed to a Belgian Tripel style, it uses also coriander seeds and curaçao. Ale yeasts and bottle refermentation complement the work to give to this beer an exceptional complexity of flavors.
Bottled in a beautiful dark green "champagne" bottle, with natural cork, and unpasteurised, Monasterium has these main characteristics:
Head: white, consistent and "creamy"
Colour: Dark orange/Amber
Taste/Smell: Plenty of esters, citric aroma remaining mandarine, apples, hints of banana. Some background spicy flavor due to the use of wheat malt and special yeast. Bitterness is well balanced to the body and flavors.
Although is 9.0% alcool by volume, its drinkability is remarkable.
A singular beer, first of this style in Brazil.
