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°

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB Jul 08). Deep coppery orange colour. Fruity yeast and coriander on the nose. Well rounded mouthfeel slightly creamy but not overly sweet. Some hints of bitter zest in the mouth with more summer stoned fruits. A full and tasty tripel perhaps more suited to drinking incolder weather than many but I would prefer it to feel just a touch more bright and breezy.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Pours golden brown with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty, with some fruity smells as well as a slightly metallic odor of some kind. Taste is malty and sweet, with a slightly fruity, bitter aftertaste. Besides the metallic smell it is very good, of course I am using a gold rimmed trappist glass, but have never noticed this before when using it. Still a good tripel, just not the best.

omhper (20934) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2007
Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear ddep golden, very brief head. Nice buttery malt mixes with almody yeast in the nose. Sweet with above medium body and rather soft mouthfeel. Mild flavours of Old English Marmelade and flowery yeast. Not the most adventurous of tripels, but a solid effort that I certainly wouldn’t mind paying for again.

Dorqui (2142) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 14, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,75L [Dominus Triple].
Compact and creamy head, optimal resistance. Nice intense orange, copper color with clear glares; much fraught and hazy with discreet fizz. Rich and alcoholic scent, many pleasant notes of plum, stum, ferment and withered grape. Violent, round, extremely alcoholic and liqueury taste with determined and sweet body.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Nice, silky smooth and creamy head. The aroma is fruity, hoppy. Flavour, well I admit that La Trappe has a very, special place in my heart, I simply like their beers!! I find notes of candy sugar, ripe fruits and a nice bitterness - overall a nice tripel.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Pours hazy medium amber, creamy off-white head. Aroma is moderatly malty; cookies and hay, lightly hoppy and heavily yeasty; rasins and prunes? Flavor is mainly sweet and lightly bitter with an average finish. Medium to full bodied oily and lively. This would definatly fair better with some ageing.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 Murky dark orange body topped by a long lasting thin off-white head. Very tasty and thick beer. Like a fruits & vegetables soup. Flavour of ripe peach, ripe plums, ripe pears, more tropical fruits, some cooked vegetables (including carrots!!!). All that swimming in caramel and a teaspoon of corriander. Overall taste of earthy ripe stuff. Filling. A little bitterness at the very end. Could have been very good but the very ripe flavour was a bit too much. Anymore “soupy” and it would be sold in a can.
