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°

yngwie (16248) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. It poured a bit unclear, copper colored and topped by a big diminishing beige head leaving nice lacings. Caramel, roasted, alcohol, spices and a bit metallic aroma. The flavor has caramel, dried fruits, some hops and spices, and is quite sweet. Full, sweet and a bit warming mouthfeel. Sweet and warming finish as well, with some hops and metal. There’s a tad much caramel in this tripel, yet it is a nice brew. (070416)

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 (4768) - 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 (5571) - 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.
