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

Cloudy orange with a quickly dissipating off-white head and pleasant aroma of caramel toffee and candy sugars. The flavor is of dry sweetness with apple and white grape fruit notes. It finished with a heavier, candy sugar sweetness in the background. The body did seem a little thin, but otherwise an enjoyable tripel. This bottle did have a new label and was not called La Trappe anymore, but was just named for the brewery.

I didnít like this one. Cloudy bright copper (like a pot). Sour plum aroma, quite sweet, a lot of alcohol in there too. Sharp, yeasty type sweetness, alcohol warmth ... a little sickly.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Deep cloudy orange-amber color with lots of floaties, nice foamy off white head that clings to my glass. Sweet malty spicy yeasty alcohol aroma.Bready sweet fruity flavors, the taste of alcohol is strong, sweet sticky syrupy mouthfeel, the hops are noticable in the finish, not all bad.

Bottle conditioned, Cloudy deep amber in color.Decent Malt nose.Harsh alcohol heat overshadows the hops and malt.

Orangy, spicey and fruity nose; hazy amber-gold color and a low tight head. "Big ass malt" - Joe V (Arnoud). Yeasty tastes hide behind a n apple juice-like body. Dry end and a medium body. The alcohol frames the main taste: itís present in the nose and in the swallow. Warms the soul. A little on the light side for a tripel, but quite good.

Old Bottle, with the old name. Apple, yeast, banana, papaya nose. Fizzy Carbonation. Orange with a little head. Brussels lace. Bready taste, applejuice like at the end. Warm but initial alcohol finish. "Itís like a muld sandwich" (arnoud)

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2002
Same goes for the dubbel as this. It isnít the same as I remembered from ages ago. Alcohol seems to be prevelant in the taste. I didnít mind the smell though. VERY malty and sweet in taste. It looked okay. I think itís making me sick now. :P I expected more from this brew.

Dorwart (2411) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Lighter and thinner than I expected. Misty orange in color. Slight peach/fruit aroma. Nice head and carbonation throughout. Trace of head lingers for a while. Light to medium body with very little aftertaste. Did not notice the alcohol as prominent as some of the other reviewers. A good beer but from what I have read there are many others that are better.
