La Trappe Tripelís 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. 17.5į

I canít recall having as much difficulty with a corked and caged bottle as I had with this one. Perseverance paid off and we were greeted by a attractive glass of marmalade-orange color with a thick, frothy off-white head. The head dropped fairly soon leaving lots of lacing. The aroma of the Koningshoeven was a sweet fruitiness with yeast and mild pepper in the background. The flavor has fruit at the forefront; oranges and apples, and not overly sweet. Hop bitterness is restrained. Thereís a very nice malt balance to the flavor with a slight pepper note added in the aftertaste. The 8% ABV was very well-masked in this Belgian triple. Mouthfeel is moderately thick and creamy. Thereís just the right amount of refreshing carbonation.

Itís a tripel and itís a good beer. But itís not my favorite. Pours much darker than I would have expected from an Abbey tripel. Not nearly the yeasty or bready flavors I expected. Darker pour, great lacing, enjoyable, but not exactly a tripel.

Overall a very good tripel. It pours a dark gold color with a very small white head. It has very distinct fruity (apple?) notes with a bitter and malty finish. I would drink this again, but it is not my #1, their Quad on the other hand... wow.

I tried this beer on January 17, 2008 at "Smokeless Joeís" in Toronto. The beer poured a dark translucent golden brown with a thin tan head. The aroma consisted of sweet malt and vanilla. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was sweet malt, plums, a little caramel, and a little vanilla.

750ml. Looks like a tripel. Tastes like one, too. Some faint, yet distinct metallic tone there towards the end, but it doesnít harm the overall experience. Iíll give it the fact that itís traveled long and far to get to this point to where I wonít bitch over a little off flavor. Very easy drinking. I should have gotten 2 of them and fired up some xbox Table Tennis.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2008 A solid tripel. Copper colored pour with a tan head (doesnít really last and no real lacing, though). Yeasty aroma and flavor. The finish is on the sweet side. Highly carbonated. Itís got all the goods here, just nothing spectacular.

750 ml bottle from Bev4less in Santee. Pours a hazy copper color with a large sudsy white head that lingers a fair while and leaves plenty of lacing. The Aroma is strong with bananas, pears and mild spices. The flavor mirrors the aroma--the bananas are sweet and ripe in the forefront; other fresh fruits round out the sides: grapes apples and pears. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The finish is long with complex fruits lingering. Overall: This is the sweetest tripel with the most fruit that I can ever remember. Very different. Recommended.

Bottle at Chaucerís Pub- Pours a hazed yellowy orange with a huge froth of white foam. Very fruity and yeasty aroma. Lots of apple and pear, white grapes and spicy rose petal. Sweet but almost tart apple and pear flavour profile with spicy yeast, fresh white bread crust and bittering hops to balance. Quite smooth and drinkable given the ABV. I liked it!
