This is very different from most triples. Much more of an amber color than the typical golden color. Also much more caramel sweet notes with this beer, and less citrusy than normal. I think it is wonderfully clean and refreshing, yet has some characteristics of their dubbel. If youíre a true triple lover, this may not be your favorite though. However, if you love dubbels, give this a try...youíll love it.

cloudy orange with a citrus fruit aroma. very dark for a tripel. small head. not as yeasty and sugary as many tripels. some darker fruits and marshmallows in flavor. actually tastes and looks more like a dubbel to me. not a fan of this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Spicy (nutmeg, pepper, anise) dried fruit aroma. Peach-amber color with moderate head and effervescence. Sour corn malt flavor primarily with raisin, peach and pepper notes and a light bitter finish. Has quite a bit of lager characteristics in the flavor - sort of like I spiiled some MGD into a decent tripel - very strange for a Belgian style beer. Okay taste but man I donít really get the lager flavor and had to knock off some points for that.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark copper appearance with a medium size tan head. Sweet smelling, yeasty, fruity aroma. Taste was malty, spicy peppery and modestly sweet. Well carbonated, medium to full bodied mouthfeel leading to a long lasting, dry, fruity finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a more amber color than most tripels...and has a good looking head...unlike the other two konings Iíve had...it actually had yeast floaties too. This beer actually smells a bit trappist...yeast, candi sugar, and some dark fruit. The flavor is not overwhelmingly great...but it is very balanced. Spicey, yeasty, sweet, and fruity. Mouthfeel is considerably thick compared to most of the triples Iíve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz. Not sure how old this is - it still has the La Trappe label on it. Pours a dark amber, one o the darkest tripels Iíve seen. Small quickly diminishing head. Smell is earthy, carmel, heavy yeast/biscuity - very appetizing.
Initial taste expodes in the mouth - earthiness, sourness and a light nutty flavor. Light sweetness, not as sweet as most tripels. Strikes me more of a Belgium strong at this point that a tripel, its probably the aging. Enjoyable.

Nice amber colored pour with a nice tan head. Malty yaeasty aroma slightly spicy as well. Sweet malty, spicy and a little fruity taste. I liked this.

Rather clear amber colour with a big, lacing head. Nice yeast and fruity hop aroma with pepper. Sweet and fruity flavours, with peppery hoppiness providing offsetting dryness. Full body. A good tripel, but not the best.
