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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

(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..

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 %

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.
