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°

BB 2/95... Poured a hazy brownish orange color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, honey, orange citrus, and light yeast. Taste of vanilla and caramel malt, yeast, citrus, and a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel was nearly flat.

04 Bottle. Kinda a medium to dark amber pour, which seemed a little dark for a standard tripel. Lots of Belgian yeast and herby corriander in the aroma. This followed by a spicy malty flavor, both spicy from the yeast as well as grassy earthy spice. Alcohol pepper was present, but not upfront.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Coppery and hazy in color with a small white head. Smells of hay, citrus, coriander, crabapples, and macintosh apples. Taste is bitter sweet with cherries, and citrus being most prevelant. Very smooth finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Great beer both in appearance and flavor. Pours nice and dark, drinks light and fruity with subtle yeast undertones. Don’t let the alcohol creep up on you, as it is very well hidden.

A very nice beer, with a taste of fruit (nuts), round i the taste, and a soft feeling in the mouth while drinking it.

DocLock (8094) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours hazy dark straw with big fizzy white head. Aroma of Brett, fruit, Swiss cheese, hopcit, lively yeast esters, sweaty female body parts including feet and taint. Tastes hopcity, with a firm, dense, Bretty mouthfeel. The finish is citrusy and spicy, with more fruit and hops. Great complexity. I’d drink this any day of the week and twice on Sunday (and 15 times on Saturday).
