COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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°

A very nice beer, with a taste of fruit (nuts), round i the taste, and a soft feeling in the mouth while drinking it.

DocLock (9351) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours hazy dark straw with big fizzy white head. Aroma of Brett, fruit, Swiss cheese, hopcit, lively yeast esters, sweaty female body parts including feet and taint. Tastes hopcity, with a firm, dense, Bretty mouthfeel. The finish is citrusy and spicy, with more fruit and hops. Great complexity. I’d drink this any day of the week and twice on Sunday (and 15 times on Saturday).

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 5, 2005
bottle from brickskeller (labelled as konigshoeven now). darker than most tripels: leans to deep amber, slight head. aroma is mostly malt, some alcohol. quite full-bodied and sweet, but finishes pretty clean. fruit is present but subdued.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2005
UPDATED: APR 19, 2005 Orange in color, fuller beige head, floaties. Aroma of yeast, some spice, some pear. Pretty sweet, fuller soft and creamy body, slightly dry on the finish. Pretty tasty.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 12, 2005
Hazzy Orange and subtle head. Semi Fizzilla stomping through Tokyo. Was expecting more explosions from model tanks, being a tripel. This must have been the toilet break part of the movie because it didnt move me much more than teh dubbel. Well a little. Again sweet and more on a citrus tip than the dark fruit tip. Some light fruits like apple and banana tossed in. The balance is presented well but I still wanted more of an alchohol ting without the obvious. I’ll stick with the Quad and Blonde, though I prefer brunetts.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2005
Bright hazy orange with large white head. Strong aroma resembling chardonnay at first, yeast, vanilla. Medium-full body, sweet like cake frosting, hints of citrus, apples, and yeast, dry finish. Well balanced overall, alcohol well hidden. A very tasty and solid tripel.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - MAR 30, 2005
once again sampled at the arendnest in amsterdam on draft: red hazy with thin tan head, nose of fresh bread and mustiness. mouth of figs and apples, spice and bread.. a good full mouthfull on the palate. slight alcohol sting in the end.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2005
Pours an attractive hazy amber color with a thin offwhite head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of doughy yeast with very mild citrus and spices. The doughy yeast is also present in the flavor, it’s accompanied by tart citrus, mild sweet finish, there’s a lingering bittersweet feeling that remains in the mouth for a while and it’s kind of unpleasant. Full body, oily texture, soft to medium carbonation. Decent but not woth of buying another bottle, like their Blond and Dubbel.
