3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 An amber beer with a white big head that disappearing leaves many laces on the glass. The flavour is spicy and fruity, not bad but maybe too much alcoholic presence. Very fruity and sweet flavours, with only light bitterness and too much alcohol for my taste. Quite good finish. Not bad but I expected more.

Drunk a 33cl bottle in De Hems in London. Looks good in the glass, very nice golden hew, had an ok head. The taste is too much like Leffe Blonde to be destinctive - maybe a slight hint of orange. It was OK, but disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker colour than other tripels, only a little head.
Aroma is sweet, a little yeasty and alcoholic with some flowers. The flavor is much alike, but there are also quite much notes from wood or barrels, maybe cork. Medium body. Nice beer, but not very unusual.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy bronze golden with a thin, mostly maintained beige head. Aroma is a mix of fruity esters: pineapples, bubble gum, and phenols: apples, and candied fruits. Taste is lightly sweet with most of the flavors present in the aroma. Some of the phenols are overpowered by alcoholic esters. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a Belgian alcoholic light stickiness and lush carbonation. Nice and probably my favorite of the La Trappe lineup.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy medium amber, creamy off-white head. Aroma is moderatly malty; cookies and hay, lightly hoppy and heavily yeasty; rasins and prunes? Flavor is mainly sweet and lightly bitter with an average finish. Medium to full bodied oily and lively. This would definatly fair better with some ageing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 Murky dark orange body topped by a long lasting thin off-white head. Very tasty and thick beer. Like a fruits & vegetables soup. Flavour of ripe peach, ripe plums, ripe pears, more tropical fruits, some cooked vegetables (including carrots!!!). All that swimming in caramel and a teaspoon of corriander. Overall taste of earthy ripe stuff. Filling. A little bitterness at the very end. Could have been very good but the very ripe flavour was a bit too much. Anymore “soupy” and it would be sold in a can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, silky smooth and creamy head. The aroma is fruity, hoppy. Flavour, well I admit that La Trappe has a very, special place in my heart, I simply like their beers!! I find notes of candy sugar, ripe fruits and a nice bitterness - overall a nice tripel.
