Sweet malts and fruity aroma. Amber/orange color, large white head, good lace. Sweet, orange, malty, thick, not very hoppy. Long lasting orange finish.

This beer poured a reddish amber and formed a bubbly off white head that left circular lace as it subsided. A good amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, herb and bread. A flavor of malt and citrus with a warming slight presence of the alcohol. A slight tart finish on a light body brought on in part, no doubt, to the heavy carbonation. Not a bad tripel.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2003 [Re-rate 3/13/2003] Dark orange colour, thin head. Fruity aroma. Really good flavour, with traces of apple and other fruits. A touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. This is probably the sweetest tripel I've ever tried. A pleasant beer, but not as complex and delicate as the others Trappist beers.

Amazing head. It's huge and frothy and tastes really good. Spicy aroma with a slight yeastiness. The flavour is fruity and rather sweet.

Syrupy looking blonde beer with a frothy light head that lasts forever. The aroma is light and slightly sweet but a little non-descript. The flavour is impressive, strawberry bubble gum with an alcohol kick. Overall a very impressive light beer belying its alcohol percentage.

Gorgeous smell, lovely taste, though a bit cloudy and a little too carbonated as it dances on your lips. Great cold but has undertones of apple cider which masks alcohol content. Loved it!!

Cloudy orange with a quickly dissipating off-white head and pleasant aroma of caramel toffee and candy sugars. The flavor is of dry sweetness with apple and white grape fruit notes. It finished with a heavier, candy sugar sweetness in the background. The body did seem a little thin, but otherwise an enjoyable tripel. This bottle did have a new label and was not called La Trappe anymore, but was just named for the brewery.

I didn’t like this one. Cloudy bright copper (like a pot). Sour plum aroma, quite sweet, a lot of alcohol in there too. Sharp, yeasty type sweetness, alcohol warmth ... a little sickly.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep cloudy orange-amber color with lots of floaties, nice foamy off white head that clings to my glass. Sweet malty spicy yeasty alcohol aroma.Bready sweet fruity flavors, the taste of alcohol is strong, sweet sticky syrupy mouthfeel, the hops are noticable in the finish, not all bad.
