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°

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2009 A light orangish/brown pour with a large white head that fades quickly. A brown sugar aroma mixed with yeast and a touch of the 8% as well. A flavor of fruit. It reminds me not in a bad way of apple cider that had gone hard. A nice soft mouthfeel and full palate. A beer I enjoyed very much.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAR 3, 2007
A nice tripel. Aroma is light fruits, sweet and spicy, peppery with a nice floral scent. Appearance is a deep golden orange in color, huge amounts of head. Mouthfeel was a little too harsh and thin for my liking. Flavor is sweet malts, light fruits with an alcoholic kick.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2007
murky cloudy off brown color w/ a small light off tan head w/ some decent lacing. Extremly overripe fruit scents some plums and spoiled apple skin tons of candied sugars, oversweet. Palate is lightly fizzy fairly full bodied. Flavor is bad carmel and rotten fruits w/ some candied sugars. Never again.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
A delight! Intense coloration. Dense and persistent cream. Weak, but aromatic. In the palate, present flavor of red fruits and banana. Incredible aftertaste, candy and fruity, perhaps optimum of this blond one. Good carbonation. The alcohol is a little strong excessively, but it does not confuse the set.....................................PORTUGUÊS: Uma delícia! Coloração avermelhada intensa. Creme denso e persistente. Aroma fraco, mas marcante. No paladar, sabor presente de frutas vermelhas e banana. Retrogosto incrível, doce e frutado, talvez o melhor dessa loira. Carbonatação bacana. O álcool é um pouco forte demais, mas não atrapalha o conjunto.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Álcool muito presente. Carbonatação que me incomodou um pouco. Levemente amarga. Pouco creme, tendo se perdido logo no início. Aroma fraco. Cor bonita (avermelhada). Faltou um melhor balanceamento na sua composição e também uma certa personalidade.

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 (21272) - 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.
