Fruiter than some of it’s trappist counterparts but still maintaining some of the more traditional spicy aromas.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, amber orange color, immediately disappearing bubbly head. Sweet grain and ripe banana aroma, reminds me of a Bière de Garde. Taste is very sweet at the beginning, I can’t smell or taste any coriander. Quite strong carbonation. Then a medium bitter taste develops leading to an medium long finish. Not my favourite Trappist Tripel.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked bottle @ LCBO: cloudy orange beer. Big fruity aromas with spice and yeast. Tastes malty and bready with dried fruits and coriander. Nicely carbonated while smooth over the tongue with a delightful bittersweet finish. Robust yet inviting; the alcohol is well hidden, but the warming effect is not. Fine trappist.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle, poured into a La Trappe Trappist glass. Appearance is opaque amber with small off-white head that reduced slowly, and left no lacing. Aroma of apricots and a hint of banana. 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.
