Default How do you say 'Tripel'

I really like the Belgian Tripel style but I'm not sure how to pronounce the actual word. Is it pronounced 'tripple' or does it rhyme with 'rifle'? Or something else?

Thanks,

Joe

No, not Trip el

Dutch is Flemish, and this is the Dutch pronunciation.

So, you pronounce it like you would when describing that a baseball player hit the ball and ran all the way around 1st and 2nd before stopping at 3rd base.

Except, maybe you flip/roll the R a little bit.
