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°

Rather clear amber colour with a big, lacing head. Nice yeast and fruity hop aroma with pepper. Sweet and fruity flavours, with peppery hoppiness providing offsetting dryness. Full body. A good tripel, but not the best.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours a coppery, whisky color (with thick legs to match), a haze of large particulate and a small, cream-colored head that fades fast to a halo. Caramel malted aroma with pear, pepper and white wine. Smooth, thick body with a fluffy lift to finish. Flavor is sweet malted fruitiness with earthen and woodsy notes, ending with grapeskin. In a word, relaxing.

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2006
1st pour from a 750 ml corked and caged bottle produced a very clear bright dark orange into my snifter. It had about a half of an inch worth of head which lasted a bit and settled down into a thin layer of foam. Nice carbonation can be seen and felt. It smells lightly of banana and other fruits. The taste is of sweet banana and the finish is somewhat dry. Finishes real clean for the initial flavor. 2nd pour from same bottle yielded a cloudy orange class full of particulates. The yeast got out. The aroma is more intense, but the flavor remains about the same.

18 Feb 06 - Sweet fruity, lightly spiced hop aroma. Cloudy light=amber colour with good lacing. Big hoppy malt fruit and spiced flavour. Nicely bittered hoppy finish and a hint of spice aftertaste.

Banana scent that is really strong. Thin head. Tons of sediment. Very warm deep flavour. Fruits and honey with a bit of spice mixed with alcohol. Warm aftertaste that tingles on the tongue. Very nice.

Lunkie (1579) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2006
Sweet malt hop aroma with flowers. Murky amber red colour with fair head and lacing. Sweet malt hop bitter flavour. Fizzy palate.

Boesky (52) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2006
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden, with a fine head. Sweet, yeasty nose. Not as complex as some of the top-echelon Trippels, but a very nice effort nonetheless.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2008 A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from some pub in Crouch End.
Not quite as good as the quad but easily better than the other two offerings from this brewery. Alcoholic aroma with hints of cream and red fruit. Similar notes in the flavour too. Something very strawberries and cream about it which I find rather enjoyable. Finish is brief with a tiny amount of hoppage which quickly turns bitter then gives a good sized kick of alcohol right at the death. Not bad.

TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2006
Bottled (BB 09/2006)
Clear red-amber color, small white head. Aroma has sweet fruits (lychee, strawberry) and a bit of rye. Sticky, crisp mouthfeel, alcohol in the start. Toffee malty, some hops in the finish. Dissapointing. Not very tripel-like. I wonder if I got a bad bottle, but when reading comments like Oakes’s, maybe not.
