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°

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.

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 à bloc par une levure trop présente. C’est rafraîchissant par moments parce que ça goûte 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!

This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange color with a thin white film of a head. Some light lacing occurred here and there, but there wasn’t too much. The aroma was slightly malty and estery to allow some super light of coriander. The taste was sweet through the malty esters and had just a touch of the coriander to come back to have just a quick spiciness to it. The aftertaste and finish were dry and bitter. On the palate, it sat about a medium in body with a fairly decent sessionable quality to it. The carbonation seemed fairly good for the style and for me as there was a light harshness but it wasn’t overbearing, very subdued - if anything. Overall, honestly, to me, I’ll say this was a good Tripel, but I think I was expecting more thinking this was going to be outstanding and it wasn’t. Oh well, I’m still glad I tried it.
