COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
La Trappe Tripel’s aroma is slightly malty and estery. This ale owes its crisp and spicy character to the use of coriander and other spices and herbs, as well as to post-fermentation in the bottle. Despite its full, rich flavour, this out-of-the-ordinary ale still has a light and dry aftertaste with a touch of bitter finesse.
Ingredients: Water; Barley malt; Hops; Yeast; Coriander. 17.5°

One of the best beers in the world! a lovely orange color with a white billowy off white head. The aroma orange, light spice from belgian yeast and hints of vanilla and banana. The flavor is what belgian triples should be. medium body with light spice slightly sweet, hints of alcohol and a finish that is clean sweet and peppery. Nearly Perfect!

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una triple ben equilibrata, dove la dolcezza spicca su tutto. Aromi maltati, con sentori speziati (coriandolo) ed erbacei, con buona consistenza dei malti per una bevuta vellutata e dal gusto rotondo e pieno

Shain (82) - ISRAEL - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. Pours slightly unclear orange with green-yellow tint and a short white head, which is short lasting and non-lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, slightly wineouss, coriander, caramel. Body is medium with medium carbonation. Taste is mostly sweet, with no sourness and slight bitterness. Flavor of sweet caramel, slight honey, coriander, some orange peel, slight liquorice in end, some alcohol, slight hop notes. Flavors are very pleasant, mostly sweet with some warm spice, slightly boring... Very nice and very drinkable. Nice and simple triple.

ninecats (197) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2014
Draught @ Ölrepubliken. Hazy goldenish with a thick white foam, slowly dissipating leaving some lacings. A solid lid on the surface. Aroma is rich, with citrus, wheat, slight vinous tone with a maltier backbone, some yeast note. Taste is also rich, with a mouthful of flavours, starting a bit sweet fruity, hint of yeast and coriander, some vinous and citrus tone, slight banana tone until a slight, careful bitterness lingers in the end. Medium body, soft to medium carbo, oily texture. Smashy.

eduardovl (929) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml served in its own beautiful chalice. A: Pours a cloudy amber color with a medium beige bubbled head. Small retention but it does not disappears completely. No lacings are left S: Sweet aroma. Reminds a liquor. Notes of caramel and fruits. Strong on malts and yeasts. More biscuity than bready T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront. Caramel, malts and yeasts followed by a mild bitter end. Quite simple to a Triple, at the same time very pleasant and drinkable M: Medium body. Low carbonation. Quite light to its 8% ABV. Balanced sweet-bitterness O: The less traditional Trappist beer but still a great one [ BA Review @ 7/10/2011 ]
