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°

Slightly murky amber color with pillowy half inch off white head. Excellent lacing. Right out of the bottle the aroma was nice ripe banana. Later the sweet malt, sugar and a hint of yeast spiciness entered the aromatic picture. Solid Belgium flavor of brown sugar, plums, apple juice, banana, grapes, dry malts and yeast. The finish is dry and not too sweet. Very tasty.

Clear amber body with a thin creamy white head. Sweet malty aroma with a fruity edge. Sweet fruity flavor, some banana, and a malty end.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 33 cl bottle. Hazy golden color, medium head tha fades rather quickly. Sweet fruity aromas and so is the taste. A class lower than the Abt/Quadrupel of La Trappe but a very nice beer nevertheless.

Some head on this dark tripel, but it doesn’t linger. Aromas are astringent and slightly floral. Taste is the same -- it is also kind of vegetal. Lasting finish of caramels and malts. Not the best of the trappsits I have tasted. The celery taste is a little offputting. Yeast plays a dominant role here.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Coutesy of and shared with gputty. C&C 750. Clear orange with a slight white head. Nose is fruity and a bit spicy - the usual suspects. Flavor greatly increased upon warming. Sweetly fruity, some caramel and coriander. Not bad. Alcohol somewhat pronounced in the finish, detracts from the overall experience.

From corked and caged 750. Clear orange pour with minimal head. Light fruits and alcohol in the nose and flavor.

Copper pour with large, off--white head that quickly recedes leaving a thin head to swim on top. Malty nose with spice and ripened fruits. Flavor is more robust — corander, ripe plum, sweet caramel, sugar, banana and a peppery finish with a bit of tang on top. The body leans toward thin, but has a slightly sticky finish. The alcohol reveals itself at the end with a comfortable warmth. Enjoyable.

The aroma is spicy and fruity. It has plums, coriander, cloves, malt, alcohol, yeast, and bananas. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The flavor is very much like the aroma with moderate bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden but the aftertaste is a little astringent. The palate is quite thin for an Abbey Triple. Overall it’s not too shabby.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange supporting a quite durable thin white head. With its apparent clarity, which is unusual for a true Belgian triple, it appears to have been filtered. Notable and fairly assertive aromas of banana, bubblegum, caramel, fresh yeast and various spices blend well together. Mouthfeel seems a bit thin and watery, but shows off a pleasant spritzy carbonation to style. Flavors come through a bit more reserved as compared to the aroma. Notes of yeasty fresh bread, caramel, nutmeg, banana, orange zest and ripe apple come through. Late palate reveals a moderate, somewhat harsh bitterness which is a bit unpleasant. I found the 8% alcohol a bit too tame to make this a satisfying triple. In the end, worth a try, but just OK.

EithCubes (5216) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle. Dense, stable, lacing beige head over a hazy orange pour. Spicy aroma of coriander, sugar, oranges, and malt. Smooth and slightly oily, strong taste of orange peels and pleasantly warming alcohol. Spicy but not as spicy as expected. Hops are well-rounded. Not my favorite triple, alcohol’s a bit too prominent, but a good dessert beer.
