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°

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2006
Coppery colored, little white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma has good spices with hoppy, floral, caramelly and fruity touch, mild alcohol also there. Medium to full bodied. Crispy palated. Flavor is more alcoholic with spices and lemon, also some bitter hops there. Aftertaste lasts with medium alcohol and some sweet caramel.

Grovlam (4163) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with medium head. Very flowery aroma at first. Then some fruit, slightly yeasty and some banana. Medium body. Flavour is defiantly sweet with ever so slightly bitter finish. I had a excellent experience with this beer. Very drinkable I thought.

Deep gold with a merange head. Yeasty and apple aroma. Very yeasty flavour with some banana. Some bitterness but no alcohol evident in the finish. Very good for a Tripel.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2006 (Bottle BBE 12/08) Fruity (banana) and slightly yeasty aroma. Dark golden colour, hazy and average size, white, very slightly lasting head with fair lacing. Fruity (banana), slightly caramel and acidic flavour. Lively carbonated, medium-bodied and slightly alcoholic palate. 06/10/06

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle: Very slightly hazy gold that glows beneath a whort lived white head. Lots of spicy banana and clove aromas atop a pleasant ’thikness’ and lemony apricot notes. Classic Tripel in the mouth; spicy and bitey with some lovely wheaty, banana and cloves, a quenching floral bitterness that takes all but a lingering sweetness, and a warming white pepper alcohol presence. My only criticism is a rather short palate. Very nice.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Beer pours deep gold/orange with a thick, uneven, gorgeous off-white head. The aroma is very malty, yeasty, and bready - hints of spice. The taste begins very sweet. The middle of the flavor asserts some mild hop flavor and some fruit (hints of prune). The finish has a little more hops, lots of malty sweetness, yeasty goodness, some spice (nutmeg, cinnamon), and alcohol. The beer is a bit heavy, but the mouthfeel is lightened by the carbonation (not syrupy). The finish is long, sweet, and warming.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2006
(On tap at Monk’s Cafe Sthlm, Sweden) Ok, so does this stuff even come on tap? And why was the brew in my glass clear golden? Taste and aromawise, this was sweet, alcoholic and estery.. a bit thin.. tasted sort of like a pasteurized and filtered version of what could’ve been a great beer..

The Etruscan (567) - Tuscany, ITALY - OCT 11, 2006
Off white head. Amber color. Aroma is malty with fruity (peach) and light wooden, alcohol and caramel notes. Flavor is malty too with ripe fruits tones and a pronounced caramelly accent, ending in a fruity finish. Medium bodied.

Another great Abby Triple. It is sold as Koningsheven Tripel in Memphis and will no longer be avail. A great beer that is very smooth for the Alchol %

LeoN (26) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 2, 2006
The best from the La Trappe. Hazy, cloudy body with a medium head that will not stay long on the top of the glass. Smooth and easy drinking beer. One of the best Tripel.
