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°

chromeotaphor (20) - Grevenbicht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Dunne schuimkraag die snel weg trekt, visueel niet aantrekkelijk, troebel. Kruidig fris aroma. Compacte bittere smaak, die bruisend is. Bitterzoete afdronk. Licht van smaak voor een tripel, drinkt zich fijn.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Szokásos belga ale illat, élénk, pezsgőhöz hasonlatos íz csipetnyi vajas jelleggel, mely idővel egyre összeszedettebbé válik, és amelynek főképpen a fanyar, savanykás karaktere érvényesül némi fűszerezettséggel kiegészülve. Megnyugtató, jól ismert, karakteres ízvilág.

Sjohnh (102) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Tripels, for me, don’t always work. At their worst, the transition from initial spicy sweetness to an alcohol strong finish can be jarring and unpleasant. Not so here. The coriander provides an initial orange essence smoothness then adds some spiciness to the finish. Visually, slightly cloudy orange with minimal head. Enjoyed that.

Derbeth (263) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Draught. Amber colour, hazy, small head with decent lacing. Quite intensive fruity aroma dominated by apricot, alcohol is hidden very well. Light sweetness. Creamy texture, average carbonation. Very good tripel.

Brune boueuse avec des particules en suspension, sans mousse. Le nez est madérisé; il déborde de fruits confits (prune, raisin...). En bouche, c’est un gâteau au fruit gonflé ŕ bloc par une levure trop présente. C’est rafraîchissant par moments parce que ça goűte le jus de raisins. Mais sinon, l’expérience est décevante sur toute la ligne. Probablement que la bouteille était trop vieillie et qu’elle été mal entreposée. Too bad!
