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°

Holy dogshit, Belgium! Only God-fearers and great beers come from Belgium, and this doesn’t look like a God-fearer to me, so that kind of narrows it down. Now this is a Tripel as our poetic-metaphorical God wanted it to be brewed. Amazing stuff. Cloudy, deep-gold/orange appearance, lasting froth, gooey candy aroma, a flavor that defines the essence of Tripel goodness, soft and gooey, goes down like liquid butter it’s so smooth. This is a new Ultimate beer for me. How does it get any better for this most wonderful style?

Draught. Keg from 2005. Clear amber colour with a nice longlasting white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of dry fruits and some earthy dusty hints. Sweet malty flavor with hints of caramel and dark fruits. Also hints of alcohol. Mlaty warming finish.

Tranquillity (1454) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2006
Dark plum colour, thick white long-lasting foam. Aroma of ripe fruits, grape, apple. Bittersweet flavour, figs and chocolate in the aftertaste.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2006
nice caramel color, nice fruity taste to it, all around good beer to drink with fine blue cheese and paté de foie gras. Not the best, but definatly one to try with the hole collection, the third of four.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
On tap at Ølbaren (2005). Pours dark golden in colour with a large head. Malty and sweet with notes of caramel. A bit too alcoholic and sweet for me.

Tmoney99 (12053) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle from Koningshoeven 4 pack. Poured a cloudy light brown with an average fizzy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malty, tart citrus and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration.

Funky sourdough aroma emanates from this cidery hazy brown colored beer. It tastes somewhat better than it smells, with fast fleeting malt, and little else. Only $2.30/11.2 oz, and still not a bargain in my book.

Strong smell of the alcohol and like a typical belgian beer (the smell I don’t like), sweet ,some bitterness

Bottle picked up the ’Dodgy Deli’ on the Cowley Rd, Wed 23rd August. This is right up there with the Quadrupel of theirs I had very recently. Pours a warm golden colour with a sweet, rich and fruity aroma, this is big on bananas from the very first sip, a wonderful rich creamy, malty taste envelopes your taste buds but it just keeps coming back to banana’s for me, not a problem at all as this is yet another stunner from Tilburg.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Shiny golden with a big cap of butter colored head. Bright rum vapors--spicy and restless, a layer of warm, melanoiden rich malt, and green plums to round out the aroma. Lively carbonation and a fruity sweetness, a touch of tartness, and a clean dry finish. A well executed tripel!
