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°

Drink cool (10-12°C) Eye: pours a hazy copper-like colour with medium big, slowly dissipating white head, few carbonation Nose: very complex: smells of wheat, raisins, grapes, sweet cherries, marmalade. Mouth: buttery body, caramel, wheat, barley, wholegrain bread, honey, yeast, over ripe apples/cider, wine gums, flowerish notes and coriander. Palate: wheat, barley, wholegrain bread, pumpernickel, linzertorte, nuts. Overall: very nice tripel. i’ll have this one again. don’t drink it to cold otherwise you won’t get all of the complexity.

Deep golden colour with large white head that quickly settles. Aromas bubblegum, banana, honey, grains, coriander. Taste is sweet - banana bread, honeycomb, multigrain bread, spices. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

Ragnampiza (390) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - AUG 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark canary yellow, quite clear, with a tiny, non persistent bright white head. Very pungent and sharp nose, some light booze notes, fruit esters, brown sugar, white bread, yeast, grapes and candied apples. Very dry and zingy, fruity, moderately malty, slightly spicy and dusty. The alchool is extremely well hidden, but it’s not exactly easy to drink due to extreme fizziness. Lively carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Not my favourite tripel, but clearly a solid beer.

wouterlip (30) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
Matige trippel, wel puur en zuiver qua smaak, maar wel weinig smaak en diepgang. Ook bij het iets warmer drinken van het bier nog steeds niet een uitgesproken smaak.

A very good Tripel, actually one of the best tripels in my opinion. Not too much alcohol taste.

Alengrin (1380) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Tripel with cream white, mousse-like head and warm orange blonde colour. Sweet, honeyish, even a bit sugary, some peppery notes and finishing with lightly astringent alcohol. Underachieving if compared with Westmalle Tripel or Chimay Triple, and even if compared with its own past, because this used to be a lot more elegand and refined when it was still brewed by the monks without interference from Bavaria.

Nice but not outstanding. Amber, hazy beer with nice white head. Quite good aroma of banana, bubblegum and spices. Alcohol nicely hidden. Drinkable abbey tripel.
