COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
La Trappe Tripel’s aroma is slightly malty and estery. This ale owes its crisp and spicy character to the use of coriander and other spices and herbs, as well as to post-fermentation in the bottle. 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; Coriander. 17.5°

Pours cloudy amber with lots of sediment and no head. Aroma is rather weak. Flavor is banana and some other fruits with some residual sugar. Has an oily mouthfeel. Just o.k.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2005
Fruity aroma, banana, alcohol. Malty, fruity (banana, citrusfruits), bubblegum, candisugar. Sweet for a triple.Finishes not very impressive ( a bit alcoholic) but still decent enough for my 100th rating!

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - FEB 21, 2005
Golden reddish orange with a small off white head. Strong citrus malt with a nice spice quality. MEd to light mouthfeel with light sweetness and a sweet tart kind of candy flavor. Light spice and some malt but the citrus sshows as creamy and delicious! Awesome

DerWeg (1493) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 33 cl, fairly cold in tall Maredsous stem glass. Pours a murky orangey-amber, with unavoidable transfer of sediment, into a slight and disappearing head. Cidery look. Candy and stewed-fruits aroma and taste. Taste slight clove and warm apple pie, pears dried and stewed. Interesting. After a Chimay Bleu, this beer has tons of flavor, but damn that sediment in the glass looks a mess. Candy and soft bitter-herb aftertaste. What a big aroma. Sheer pleasure in the glass, would get this by the case in spite of all the clumpy ’yeast poop’ swirling around the bottom of that beautiful glass.

Hazy deep amber colour with small white head. Sweet aroma with hints of berries. Malty flavor with some sweet notes. Very thin palate. Different from most other tripel’s.

750 ml corked bottle: Hazy light amber w/a lasting off white head. Woody, musty "cork" aroma at first. A light sugary sweet & dried apricot fruit aroma as it warms...cork aroma still there. Some bready malt and yeasty aromas beyond that. Hints of spicy yeast, herbal hop, & leather as well. Flavor is well balanced, but to the sweet side. Musty, earthy flavor, light hop bitterness @ the finish. Toasted malt w/ some green caramel apple flavors as well. Aftertaste is toasted malt, lightly sugary, and a little dried apricot fruit. Higher carbonation, medium body, and well hidden alchol although there is a little warmth; smooth. A very interesting beer. Not a great "tripel" but it’s got some nice complexities that make it enjoyable, but IMHO not a true classic even devoid of any style parameters.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Very thin white head with a slightly murky dark gold body. The aroma is bananas, cognac and caramel. The taste is malty with bread and cherries. Also some vanilla and caramel come out as it warms. The body is thin. Unimpressive for the style.
