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°

Funky sourdough aroma emanates from this cidery hazy brown colored beer. It tastes somewhat better than it smells, with fast fleeting malt, and little else. Only $2.30/11.2 oz, and still not a bargain in my book.

Strong smell of the alcohol and like a typical belgian beer (the smell I don’t like), sweet ,some bitterness

Bottle picked up the ’Dodgy Deli’ on the Cowley Rd, Wed 23rd August. This is right up there with the Quadrupel of theirs I had very recently. Pours a warm golden colour with a sweet, rich and fruity aroma, this is big on bananas from the very first sip, a wonderful rich creamy, malty taste envelopes your taste buds but it just keeps coming back to banana’s for me, not a problem at all as this is yet another stunner from Tilburg.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Shiny golden with a big cap of butter colored head. Bright rum vapors--spicy and restless, a layer of warm, melanoiden rich malt, and green plums to round out the aroma. Lively carbonation and a fruity sweetness, a touch of tartness, and a clean dry finish. A well executed tripel!

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2006
Dark golden with a large white head. Very sweet, spicy fruit aroma. Taste is bitter-sweet, peachy fruit. Coriander listed in ingredients: not sure if I picked it up. A persistent bitter aftertaste. A multi-faceted alcoholic brew, utterly beguiling.

Bought it in a Koningshoeven 4pk with a Trappist Glass. Darker than expected. Thought it would be a light hazy golden, it was amber and creamy. Lots going on in this beer. Lots of sweetness and soft fruits. Malty throughout. Slight alcohol burn.

Amber body, thin head, lots of fruit. Not my favorite trappist, but I highly recommend it.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2006
Bottled. Amber color with creamy long lasting head. Orangey and fruity aroma with hints of melon. High carbonation. Orangey flavor with exotic fruits, sweet maltiness and warming alcohol. Sweet and fruity finish with marmelade flavor. This beer plays mostly on fruity esters.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Dark gold in appearance, thin but creamy head. Aroma was initially quite woody, with hay accents. As it warmed, some cotton candy and alcohol emerged. Flavors were very lightly of apricot, a bit of bread, a dose of oakiness, and a grassy hop finish. Alcohol is quite clearly present throughout, and ultimately detracts from things a bit. Having said that, this isn’t a bad beer by any means.
