3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget
BBE 05-2015, I’ve kept this for a year since purchase. Orange clear beer with big white head. Aroma has ripe fruits with banana, apricot and pear, Belgian yeast, little alcohol and some glue. Taste is fruity with pear like Belgian yeast and malty sweetness. Palate is thick but highly carbonated. Finish has a short intense bite of bitterness and goes on with alcohol. Coriander comes up on the finish. Pouring the yeast in makes the beer hazy, makes the aroma softer and the flavor drier. Not the best tripel out there.

Flavour of apricot, banana, toffee, spices and a hint of caramel. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and lively carbonation. Overall a delicious Abbey Tripel, despite 8% ABV the alcohol is not noticeable.

Bottle. Not the greatest aroma but the taste is perfect tripel style. Yeast and citrus with a good malty note. The palate is great and really makes you want a new one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Has a rapidly diminishing head with minimal lacing yet retains it’s carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel, possibly even a little creamy, lovely fresh aromatic esters.. not quite as good as Westmalle mind, but still an excellent full flavoured character. Looking forward to the other 4 La Trappes standing proudly on my beer shelf now!
