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°

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2004
Bottled (330ml). A golden tripel with just a little bit of yeast making for a cloudy brew. Light carbonation, bubble gum/fruit flavour. Very good.

Esta es una muy buena cerveza. Es una cerveza oscura, un cierto sabor agridulce y afrutado.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2004
My first beer after a 12 day "liver healing" abstinence. Good to be back! Starts off with a light amber colored pour with a light, yet clumpy white head, good lacing. Effervescent bubble action lasts throughout - very good looking brew. Aroma - Alcohol is most apparent but not overwhelming, also note traces of bubble gum and apricots. Flavor has a slight bit of nuttiness with faint bubblegum and cotton candy sugar sweetness. Not very complex. Alcohol is apparent but not overwhelming. Carbonation is just about right - not champagne-like - but lively and perky. Very drinkable Tripel, not one for the ages, but a pleasant diversion.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2004
Pours with a glistening mahogany body… one of the darker Triples I’ve sampled… and a fluffy cream-colored head. The aroma is alive with plums and apricot… rather malty. The flavor brings some toasty malts, lots of caramel upfront with some notes of oak nutty almond likening. I even find some suggestions of ripened cantaloupe… the palate is rather buttery… very stick and sweet. Certainly not the classic Triple for me, this has far darker malts… but very nice stuff overall.
Post Note: Funny how both DrBeer and I both found notes of Apricot and almond… I didn’t even read his rating before I typed this up.

Apricot coloured beer. Sweet aroma of apricots and almonds. Fruity flavor with tones of sugar, apricots and meringue.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2004
Brite orange to copper in color. Beautiful white head lingers atop the glass. Fruity esters in the aroma balanced by fresh malt characters. Somewhat astringent in flavor, slightly sweet, and extremely well balanced. The epidomy of the triple style.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - APR 3, 2004
bottle...Pours a hazy dark amber with considerable amount of floating yeast. Alcoholic aroma with hints of raisins and plums. Banana/clove flavors, sweet to start. A nice beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3306) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 3, 2004
Aroma is yeastly and citrusy. Pours a very hazy copper with lots of floaties and a nice white head. Start is malty with a sweet middle. The yeastly banana flavors really shine through. Alcohol is well hidden. Slight bitter finish. Where would we be without monks?

cloudy orange-brown with a very nice, long-lasting head; sweet malt flavor with a hint of lemon; smooth, creamy texture; moderately sweet flavor with a pleasantly bitter finish; above-average tripel
