Recipe: De Ranke Guldenberg Tripel

When the De Ranke brewery opened in 1994 as part of a new wave of Belgian microbreweries, its first beer was a beer inspired by Westmalle Tripel, Orval, and brewer Nino Bacelle’s love of hops.

Like all De Ranke beers, Guldenberg gets generous portions of whole-leaf hops—in this case, a locally grown version of the German variety Hallertauer Mittelfrüh. It also gets a long dry hopping while conditioning in the lagering tank. The recipe that follows is a homebrew-scale version adapted from information provided by Bacelle.
