COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
La Trappe Tripelís 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. 17.5į

Very thin white head with a slightly murky dark gold body. The aroma is bananas, cognac and caramel. The taste is malty with bread and cherries. Also some vanilla and caramel come out as it warms. The body is thin. Unimpressive for the style.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Hazy orange-brown with a little creamy white head and a bit of lacing. Fruity and malty aroma. Nice malty flavor with banana and sweet caramel. Similar to the dubbel but with a little heavier body, and a touch more bitterness at the finish. The flavors are a little deeper and stronger as well. Tasty and enjoyable. Not an Allagash, but I like it.

jimhilt (2513) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Pours a three-finger head that leaves a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation. Medium bodied. Nose is alcohol, starts with some harshness of alcohol, finish is on the sour side not what I was expecting with a triple, their dubbel and quadrupel are better. 750ml bottle for $6.99 from Hoosick St. Discount Bev, Troy, NY.

thegreenrooster (3722) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Pour is a deep dark almost tan. Nice size white head foams after the pour. Aroma is nice an musty almost like a dry wine. Flavor is sweet,fruity and a dash of honey. Nothing really overpowers though and this one is quite bland. I will still try the dubbel and quad though. The good thing about this brew is the price. Probably the cheapest trappist out there.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2004
Bottled. An amber coloured tripel with a reasonable white head. The aroma and taste are very sweet with notes of banana, bubblegum and candy sweets. The yeasty alcohol also comes through. Drinkable but really too sweet to be great.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2004
Rich orangey-brown with a thin but lasting creamy tan head. Nice aroma of sweet malts and orange-citrus and alcohol and bananas with some spice. Too carbonated on the tongue to begin but I like the malts in the flavour. A little thin in the mouthfeel but lingers nicely.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 Nice light brown color with a foamy tan head, this has an awfully sweet aroma, strong malts with some fruitiness. Itís light, yet syrupy in the mouth. Sweet malt tastes, little else, execept for a dash of bitterness on the sticky finish. I prefer the dubbel and quadrupel.

(750ml bottle) Pours an orangish-amber body with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, and bananas. Nice malt and dark fruit flavor. Soft palate.

Wow, I thought Iíd had this one already. Oh well. Nice fruity aroma (orange blossom), big moderate head on weakish orange/amber body. Slightly thin but good flavors of fruit. Nice lingering finish of tannins and caramel. Quite good fora "value" beer such as this (Iíve seen it quite cheap in some beer stores).
