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°

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2007
Pours a firey apricot color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Great head retention finally reducing to a full, thick canopy. Aroma of granite and dried bananas, peach, and citrus. Full nectar w/ ample residual effers. Mildly sweet w/ strong flavors. Malty w/ a persistant peach pit bittering from start to finish. Secondary favors of dried apricot, peach, banana cream, vanilla bean, and candy rocks. As she warms a little honeycomb comes through. The finish is bittered perfectly leaving some lingering malt complexities. Overall: a stronger flavored brew w/ perfect Tripel character and a mild sweetness.

badgerben (4722) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Golden color with a thin head. Lots of wheat and a little banana aroma. This tastes more like a Wit, with wheat and coriander the dominant flavors. Slightly sweet finish though.

JK (5410) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Thanks to Badgerben for sharing. Very nice. Aroma has wheat and fruit, and I’m happy this tripel is not dominated by alcohol. Flavor is sweet with malt and more fruit, very lightly spiced.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Banna in the nose. Wheat body with raisins and wheat body. Decent utility beer.

Geiserich (3904) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 24, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Bottled: Malty, sweet and alcoholic aroma. Notes of raisins. Dark orange to reddish color. Stiff, frothy head. Taste is sweet with notes of rum-plums, raisins, oak barrel and a alcohol sharpness. Light bitter finish. Pleasant but unspectacular.

Nicely done belgian ale. Fruity, a bit sweet, and well rounded. Unspectacular, but solid.
