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°

My i wrote these scores only 20-30 mins ago and as my thoughts go over it i feel as if im very much so over scoring it. Aroma is honey sweetness with sumflowers and orange having a little say. Taste is also similar with some buttery caramel malt kicking in however theres some lemon zest trying to hide the sweetness which helps. I can understand now why people say this isnt as good as it used to be since its been overtaken, as theres far far better examples of the style. Rather upsetting to see a trappist brew something so bad.

Fukito (845) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle - December 2005 Pours dark copper, caramelly colour. With a medium not-so-frothy-as-expected white head, that almost completely disappears after a while and sees itself reduced to a white rim, leaving,some lacing as my chalices empties. Aroma is sweet, yeast, pungent but captivating. Taste is strong, sweet, a bit of burnt, but not offending. It reminds me a bit of Leffe blond but on steroids, you can really feel the yeast profile and the candi here, it has a fruity touch to it too. You can clearly feel the 8% and it even tastes stronger. Mouthfeel is full despite its lightness. Aftertaste is spicy and intense. A beatifull triple indeed.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle. New beer at ABSdrinks, Winksele. Clear amber colour, small long-lasting beige head, medium lacing. Aroma of abricot, apple, raisins, caramel, spices, alcohol. Bittersweet flavour of spices and flavour, very light maltiness and bitterness in the medium-lasting finish.

Eladerman (82) - Newburgh, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2005
This my be my favorite Trappist tripel I have tried. Better in my mind that chimay white, or westmalle tripel. The Westmalle is too sweet. This has just the right sweetness, with a fruity, honey-like finish. I can drink two or three of these in a sitting-then I feel REEEEAL good !!!!!!!!

A pleasing, deep, clear amber in appearance, with a malty toffee aroma. Refreshing but rich on, this has a fruit & caramel edge.

Boutip (4964) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle: Poured a deep orangey color ale with a nice light brown head with good retention. Aroma of candy with sweet malt is totally irresistible. Taste is also dominated with this sweet malt presence with a subtle mix of spice in the background. Alcohol is very well hidden but body is definitely too thin, which seems to be a characteristic of this brewery.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2005
33 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Amber colour with a fine rocky head. Great aroma of toffee, some sweet caraeml and hints of dried fruit. Also great flavour of candy and caramel, that ends up with a warm feeling from the alcohol. A great tripel.

330ml brown bottle split with gilvanblight. Poured a nice shade of glowing orange, only a light layer of foam on top, tan in colour, somwhat clingy and sticky. Strong banana aroma. Flavour is sweet with some oranges, cloves with a long finish.
