In 1990, Brouwerij Roman from Oudenaarde (which was founded in 1545) launched a range of abbey beers under the Ename name. The birth of the Blond, Dubbel and Tripel was marked with an open-air spectacle, held amongst the abbey ruins. Ename Tripel is a classic tripel in the rich tradition of Belgian abbey beers. The Tripel denomination means that higher quantities of each ingredient are used. So this is a heavy, predominantly blond beer, with a powerful taste of malt and hop bitters.
