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°

11.2 oz bottle-An aroma of belgian yeast, malt, and alcohol on an orangis amber body with a small head. Taste of malt, yeast, and alcohol. A little too much alcohol but not bad.

33cl. Light golden pour and off-white head. Fruity, sweet, slight wheat and citrus. I think I prefer the dubbels to the tripels in general, but this isn’t a bad beer by any means, as the 3.7 suggests.

Taste is moderately sweet, peach, pear. orange, some alcohol/plastic, herb, light caramel. Soft, medium-full body, light stickiness. Too much alcohol presence for the ABV.

Muggus69 (2000) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2007
330ml bottle best before Dec. ’08. Spicy aroma, orange and lemon, cinamon, honey and barley sugar candy sweetness, some dried fruitiness, very nice. Pours a clean deep golden body with a big dense white head and lace. Body is rich, quite surupy, some apparent alcohol, amooth though. Flavour is towards the sweet side with some nice honey like touches of malt, a bit of spice is apparent towards the finish with some orange and dried apricot character in there to entice. A great beer although one might say its lacking is complexity in comparison to other Trappists, and Abbey beers, of this style.

Fiery Orange Glow With Sandy Head. Rich Syrupy Sweet Malt, Yeast, Bread and Spices, Particularly Cloves on the Nose. Heavy Creamy Mouthfeel with Spicy Notes Dropping Continuously Through. Nice Malty Underlay. Spice Notes, Breaded and Yeasty. Some Noticeable Warming. The Konings are Far More Simplistic Than Other Trappist Beers, But then Perhaps A Very Good Example of what a Great Session Beer Can Be All About.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2007
Tasted 18/05/2007. 330ml bottle from Island Bay New World. Pours a rich orange gold, not quite bright, with a billowing off-white head that collapses. The nose is significantly clovey with a little underlying alcohol note (raisin and vanilla). In the mouth it’s cloying and clovey. Too clovey. Medium-fullish body and too sweet in the finish. Little complexity. Totally one-dimensional - way too phenolic - and the only Trappist beer I’ve ever had to pour down the sink... I’m very disappointed. Purchased a four-pack. Shared one bottle with a study group. Only got through half a bottle on my own, and then gave the other two away.
