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°

HogTownHarry (6135) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle (330ml). At Smokeless Joe shared with blankboy. Poured hazy orange (some tiny black sludgies) with a large light tan foamy-creamy lasting head. Aroma of banana, wine, spices (cloves, coriander), yeast, oily slightly toffeeish malt. Taste is blended and balanced, mostly fruity spicy malt and plenty of well-behaved alcohol. Mouthfeel lively and syrupy - way smoother than most tripels I’ve had, not as complex as the St. Bernardus or the Westmalle, but nevertheless ...

BBB63 (6200) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2005
330ml bottle aged over a year and served in my La Chouffe tulip:

Golden honey hue with lot of small floaties topped by a fading fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, candi sugar, pear, apricot, peppery hops, dusty yeast esters and even a hint of powder chocolate. Initial taste offered up a sweet mix of malt and fruit supported closely by a never ending spice character for clove and pepper, I too get some banana as well. A moderate phenolic activity and finished with a light bitter bite. Some lingering tart and wood tones after the drink. The feel is quite lively despite the appearance and is a touch warming and leathery. The whole is better than the parts and I ended up enjoying this quite a lot.

330 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Pours with an enormous head. Colour is deep golden to brown (amber), slightly hazy. Very nice aroma of fresh and dried fruits, spices, oak and exotic wood. Flavour is slightly spicy and peppery on a malty sweet basis with brown sugar and oaky elements. Not bad.
