COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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°

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.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2003
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.
