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°

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Bottle. Beautiful amber colored body with a massive head. Aromas are grainy and fruity. Candi sugar is the first impression, but it gives way to a malty fruit presence that is well balanced and very enjoyable. Not as complex as some of the other tripels I’ve tried, but comes off very well.

33 cL botttle/K05 J6. Aroma of caramel malt and pear. Perhaps tropical fruits. Beautiful orange color with a white head that filmed rapidly. Medium bodied. Mild carbonation. Starts with candy sweetness. Heat. Fruity perfumes. Something like sucking on the core of a pear. There is a lot of fruit mix, but I have difficulty in effecting a separation. The finish is rather dry, and the mouth is left as though it had the skin of a pear imposed. What kind of pear? Maybe Bosque. The complexity is very entertaining, and this ale seems seriously underrated. And it’s not Belgian. Amazing. Thanks to Monument Wines and Liquors in Concord, CA., for the opportunity.

750 mL bottle. Clear orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma of pear, banana, passion fruit, and yeast. Bright and lively palate. Caramel sweetness and mixed fruit taste with only a slight bitterness and a semi-dry finish.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2007
750 ML Bottle-Deep copper color w/a minimal tan head. Sweet belgian aroma. Sweet flavor of yeast, raisins, figs, dates, vanilla, caramel & dark fruit. Had some citrus/spice/colander on the back end. Big, full mouthfeel w/good carbonation; very easy drinking brew. Alcohol was well hidden. Easily the best of the 4 Latrappe brews sampled during a July 4th vertical.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 9, 2007
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.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 24, 2007
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.
