Cuvée (pronounced koo-vay´) is a wine and beer
term, derived from the French word ‘cuve’ meaning
barrel or tank. Mostly the name is used for a blend
of the best base beers for a second fermentation.
The experienced blender is able to awaken the
fi nest nuances with his cultivated knowledge
through the blending process. In fact, the ambitious
blend of different styles, when successfully merged,
creates a delightful palate for the sophisticated beer
Brewery Van Eecke named Tripel 8 Cuvée Watou, in
honor of the village of Watou where they have been
brewing since 1624!
Compared to their fl agship ale, the 10% Tripel
ABT, this Tripel Cuvée Watou has a mild alcohol
percentage of only 8%, but with a full fl avor, a malty
taste and a subtle presence of Popering hops.
