COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
La Trappe Tripel’s aroma is slightly malty and estery. 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. 17.5°

0,33 bottle. Golden color with thick white head. Banana, little honey in the background, hay aroma. Fruity, medium sweetness at the begging, little stronger bitterness at the middle, thin alcohol in the background, makes mouth dry.

PapaSkeetSkeet (982) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Gold with a centimeter of off-white head, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is sweet raw grain and hay with slight banana and peach. Like a fake banana candy flavor. Body is oily-starchy, moderate weight. moderate carbonation, coarseness, and burn. Flavor is some banana-peach and phenols as well as a crisp grass hops finish with raw oat-wheat bran. Overall, a pretty good tripel; could be a bit more crisp, but the yeast flavor is pretty good. Despite the phenols, it’s on the Belgian side of the flavor spectrum. Nice!

Well, it’s OK, not anything special in this category. Pretty dry with a taste of hay. Dry and quite spicy at the finish. It’s not that I dislike this brew, but for the money, you can do better. If someone dropped off a truckload of this in my driveway, I’m sure I’d manage to get through it in a year or two. Still, one can do better for a tripel.

Lawger (176) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark gold with two fingers of fluffy white head. Malty bouquet with medium intensity, some yeasty fruit, bananas and a hint of peaches. Medium bodied palate with some boozy heat, maltiness and fruitiness. Medium+ finish with low bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka do 11.2015r. Złote klarowne, piana średnia, pozostaje z postaci cienkiej tafli przykrywajacej piwo, ale trwała. Aromaty winne, drożdzowe, owocowe. Piwo wytrawne i owocowe w smaku. Wysyceniw wysokie, wrecz musowanie w ustach.

Beautiful Trappist beer. I think La Trappe has beaten Rochefort as my favorite. Went to the brewery today, so much atmosphere. Back to the beer. Beautiful clear golden/orange. There isn’t much foam, after a few minutes a thin cover of soft foam covers the beer. The flavor is divine. Little sweet in balance with a little bitterness and a touch of sour. The beer is quite sparkly. The aftertaste is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. The delicious aroma’s stay in your mouth for minutes.

fkoolen (446) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Cloudy orange colour, white foamy head. Typical La Trappe yeast character in the nose and taste with banana, vanilla, spices and light bitterness, good grainy and creamy malts, quite boozy. Dry and fruity sweet finish. Good body, relatively high carbonated, soft mouthfeel. Classic Trappist tripel.

baraciisch (2185) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Pours golden in color with generous foamy white head... Gentle citrus aroma with hints of hops, flavor is slightly bitter and less sweet and balanced compared to other tripels I’ve had, but it finishes nicely with minimal bitterness on palate... Alcohol content not terribly well concealed and I thought it had more than the 8% written on the bottle... Otherwise pretty average for a tripel, prefer their quad
