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°

Miksu (5007) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2006
Bottled. Amber color with creamy long lasting head. Orangey and fruity aroma with hints of melon. High carbonation. Orangey flavor with exotic fruits, sweet maltiness and warming alcohol. Sweet and fruity finish with marmelade flavor. This beer plays mostly on fruity esters.

Kinz (3378) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Dark gold in appearance, thin but creamy head. Aroma was initially quite woody, with hay accents. As it warmed, some cotton candy and alcohol emerged. Flavors were very lightly of apricot, a bit of bread, a dose of oakiness, and a grassy hop finish. Alcohol is quite clearly present throughout, and ultimately detracts from things a bit. Having said that, this isn’t a bad beer by any means.

Ibrew2or3 (7201) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Slightly murky amber color with pillowy half inch off white head. Excellent lacing. Right out of the bottle the aroma was nice ripe banana. Later the sweet malt, sugar and a hint of yeast spiciness entered the aromatic picture. Solid Belgium flavor of brown sugar, plums, apple juice, banana, grapes, dry malts and yeast. The finish is dry and not too sweet. Very tasty.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Clear amber body with a thin creamy white head. Sweet malty aroma with a fruity edge. Sweet fruity flavor, some banana, and a malty end.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 33 cl bottle. Hazy golden color, medium head tha fades rather quickly. Sweet fruity aromas and so is the taste. A class lower than the Abt/Quadrupel of La Trappe but a very nice beer nevertheless.

jefcon (1444) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Some head on this dark tripel, but it doesn’t linger. Aromas are astringent and slightly floral. Taste is the same -- it is also kind of vegetal. Lasting finish of caramels and malts. Not the best of the trappsits I have tasted. The celery taste is a little offputting. Yeast plays a dominant role here.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Coutesy of and shared with gputty. C&C 750. Clear orange with a slight white head. Nose is fruity and a bit spicy - the usual suspects. Flavor greatly increased upon warming. Sweetly fruity, some caramel and coriander. Not bad. Alcohol somewhat pronounced in the finish, detracts from the overall experience.

From corked and caged 750. Clear orange pour with minimal head. Light fruits and alcohol in the nose and flavor.

jcr (2256) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Copper pour with large, off--white head that quickly recedes leaving a thin head to swim on top. Malty nose with spice and ripened fruits. Flavor is more robust — corander, ripe plum, sweet caramel, sugar, banana and a peppery finish with a bit of tang on top. The body leans toward thin, but has a slightly sticky finish. The alcohol reveals itself at the end with a comfortable warmth. Enjoyable.
