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°

Vraiment très sucrée au nez! C’est clairement le genre de bière qui ne m’invite pas trop à continuer l’expérience. Je me lance quand même... En bouche l’alcool bien présenté et le corps agréable viennent sauver la donne : ça demeure trop sucré pour moi mais l’ensemble se débrouille correctement. Cela dit, leur quadrupel est de loin meilleure, à mon avis.

Orange bis Kupferfarbig mit flüchtigem Schaum. In der Nase Hefe, Kräuter, Karamell, Frucht Wein. Im Antrunk alkoholisch stark, würzig, Kräuterlikör. Dann übernimmt eine leichte Säure. Im Abgang etwas bitter.

D’une couleur ambrée peu voilée avec une belle mousse qui disparaît assez vite La Trappe Tripel présente une carbonation vive avec des arômes très fruités( fruits secs, abricot, orange et banane), de levures belges qui rapelle l’ester. En bouche, on découvre les mêmes saveurs jumelées à une très belle amertume sèche pour finir avec une belle chaleur d’alcool. PROOST La Trappe !

tbonde (132) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2015
33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@ approx 10 degrees C. Pours amber with correct off-white head. Faint aroma of malt and yeast. Carmel taste, rather heavy and sweet with malt and grapefruit notes. Lacks the freshness of the top tripels.The aftertaste is a lingring bitterness, almost quinine and like biting into citrus pips. Too bitter by far to be pleasant in my taste. For my money there are other tripels out there which are much better balanced.

Stoned99 (400) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
750ml bottle from Halles St-Jean shared with wife. Aroma: lemon, candide, spices, Belgian yeast. App: cloudy golden with small white head, some big bubbles in the head. Taste and palate: medium to full body, high carbonation, light sweetness, a tad dry, warm alcohol finish. Overall: a good representation of the style. Think the body could be bigger still enjoyed it. Not expensive for the style.

branko (60) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 26, 2015
0,33 bottle. Golden color with thick white head. Banana, little honey in the background, hay aroma. Fruity, medium sweetness at the begging, little stronger bitterness at the middle, thin alcohol in the background, makes mouth dry.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Gold with a centimeter of off-white head, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is sweet raw grain and hay with slight banana and peach. Like a fake banana candy flavor. Body is oily-starchy, moderate weight. moderate carbonation, coarseness, and burn. Flavor is some banana-peach and phenols as well as a crisp grass hops finish with raw oat-wheat bran. Overall, a pretty good tripel; could be a bit more crisp, but the yeast flavor is pretty good. Despite the phenols, it’s on the Belgian side of the flavor spectrum. Nice!

Well, it’s OK, not anything special in this category. Pretty dry with a taste of hay. Dry and quite spicy at the finish. It’s not that I dislike this brew, but for the money, you can do better. If someone dropped off a truckload of this in my driveway, I’m sure I’d manage to get through it in a year or two. Still, one can do better for a tripel.

Lawger (213) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark gold with two fingers of fluffy white head. Malty bouquet with medium intensity, some yeasty fruit, bananas and a hint of peaches. Medium bodied palate with some boozy heat, maltiness and fruitiness. Medium+ finish with low bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
