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°

K24J2 bottle code. 750ml bottle that has been in my cellar for at about 2 years. Served in a small chalice. Aroma is yeast, vanilla, lemon, honey, light caramel, with hints of apple. Copper colored with a small and fluffy head. Well carbonated. Huge mouthfeel at first. The initial taste is honey, fruit, yeast, floral followed by a rush of alcohol and black pepper that cleans up the beer. Overall a really nice beer. On a side note, I got a good dose of what I can only describe as their "house" taste, which is redolent of cobwebs, mold, and dust, but not in a bad way.

almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - JUL 5, 2007
Bottle. Brown color and an abundant enough head. The aroma is strong and agreeable, a yeast with a bit of citric fruits. In the palate, the flavor is to masses and fruits. It is refreshing, probably for his excessive carbonated.

Bottle. Pours iwht a brown color and a medium head. Aromas of a typical Belgian, yeast and a bit of citrus. Flavors of dough, fruit and some spiciness. Very highly carbonated hence more refreshing than most triples.

Deep orange colour and thin fading head. Flavour is quite spicey and yeasty. There’s a little fruit sweetness and it’s got a rich texture. A little flat though.
