Named after the Devil, as the label drawing indicates, Bøvelen is a Tripel that demands respect. Once we saw how the Belgian Trappist monks brew their strong beers, we just knew we had to continue the tradition in Kinn Brewery. Despite the high alcohol content, Bøvelen is a refreshing beer. Like a true Belgian Tripel the colour is golden, the notes well-balanced in the Belgian style, with sprightly hoppiness and a tiny hint of sweetness in the finish. The alcohol, by contrast, is well concealed. This Devil’s Brew is a feisty companion to cheese, rich fish dishes and as an aperitif.
