De Manke Monnik, the Lame Monk, is a traditional Tripel from De Bekeerde Suster. Another one of the house brews, De Manke Monnik, has a darker color and thicker head than De Blonde Barbier, the other beer I tried from De Bekeerde Suster. De Manke Monnik was a bit more complex and the ABV of 7.2% was much more apparent. It certainly wasn’t overpowering and was easy to drink, but the taste was very rich.
De Manke Monnik was originally brewed with pilsner malt but made the switch to pale ale malt in 2012. In 2014, the beer won most flavorful beer at the pROOSt Beer Festival in Hilvarenbeek.
