White head, diminishes quickly. Golden colour. Aroma; alcohol, banana. Sweet and smooth taste. Sometimes the alcohol is too much.

Bottled. Pure, golden clear body, with a rich large fluffy white head. Very good looking beer this. Lovely beer, that perhaps has been under rated thus to date. I really enjoyed this beer. It just lacked the finish a classy palate that would put it up with Duvel and others.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 I thought this one was really given in to the problem I see often with belgian trippels. It's like drinking alcohol and yeast with some beer in it. Coincidentally, La Trappe were the first belgian-style beers (yes I know this is dutch) I ever tried. I couldnt figure out what the hype was about belgians until I tried other brands. The classic "dont judge a style by one particular brand".

A belgium ale aroma abounds. The apperarance is a golden slighlty hazy brew with a slight carbonation with a nice fluffy light head that slow dissapates. The flavor is a bitter sweety honey flavor with a smooth aftertaste and a rich finish. The alcohol finish is evident. Stong palate with an evident spice. Overall I like the distinctive taste and the subtle flavor that abounds.

This brew had a large creamy thick head that was long lasting. There was lacing on all sides of my glass. The aroma was fruity and spicy. It had a spicy flavor. Its body was an orangish color and cloudy. It had a somewhat bitter taste to it with a slight aftertaste. I really enjoyed drinking this particular brew.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a large invigorated light brown head of fine to medium sized bubbles. It has a cloudy dark orange-brown body full of yeast. Its aroma is a very pleasant yeasty peach smell. Its flavor is full bodied and chewy with hints of spice and fruit.

(33cl Bottle) Pours a medium white head that quickly dissipates. The body is a beautiful, cloudy, copper. Has a pleasant apple and banada nose. Thin apple flavours are evident with some slight spices and malt. Finished rather thin and dry. Average Abbey.
