Not too strong ambar beer. Regular aroma. Nothing special taste. Not so much different than pilsener beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark blond tripel with white head. Touches of citrus, orange, bit of coriander.
light sweetness and littlel bitters, which I find a bit disappointing. It’s not a bad one, but it’s not a Westmalle Tripel

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heavier body and less hoppy than Wesmalle makes the beer a bit cloying for my taste. Aromas or pils malt, belgian spicy yeast, caramel. Flavors of pils malt, honey-like belgian esters, peppery clovy spice, banana. Finish is a bit cloying for a tripel.

Had this after a San Miguel and it was really good. Peach nose, sweet and dry Monbazillac body. Drank it too fast to remember the last bits but this was a good golden Belgian. It’s great to be able to write things like this after drinking a beer on your own.

disclaimer: old bottle. pours hazy golden orange with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. white grapes, rotten fruits, toasted golden candi and brown sugar, belgian spiciness, yeast. average to light carbonation - obviously has lost it; medium body - oily and kind of syrupy; semi-sweet and grassy-spicy finish. blah. will try a fresh bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark blond color, nice lacing head. Aroma has some cloves, orange peel, yeast and fresh hop notes. Balanced taste, light sweet, a bit above medium bitterness, distinguishable sourness. Enduring malty, hoppy aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Maker: De Koningshoeven, Berkel-Enschot, Netherlands ***
Beer: La Trappe Tripel (bottled, unfiltered, 750ml) ***
Style: Abbey Tripel ***
ALC.VOL.: 8.0% ***
"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." [brewery note]. And coriander, they forgot to say. ***
Colour: Bright hazy orange, with a large, frothy off-white head. ***
Nose: Banana, yeast, mild esters, spices. ***
Texture: Full-bodied, not watery (but not oily either). Moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Bananas loom large at the start, together with various spices, including coriander Yeast. Alcohol blends in well. Hoppy notes are added in the middle, with a wee hint of lemon. Finish is the same, with some estery notes. After taste is coriander, yeast, banana and esters. ***
Impressions: Powerful but non-cloying abbey tripel, eminently (and dangerously) drinkable. Much like a Bavarian wheat "plus", only it’s not a wheat beer. Highly recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Birra dal colore biondo velato con riflessi aranciati; schiuma abbondantissima. Al naso predominano miele e leggeri sentori di frutta sotto spirito, confettura di pesca ed albicocca. Corpo medio, con una carbonatazione abbastanza elevata. In bocca è dolce, pur mantenendo una certa gradevole secchezza che non la rende stucchevole; malto, frutta sotto spirito e una leggera tostatura con l’alcool che è molto ben nascosto. Buon finale secco, che pulisce bene il palato lasciando una leggera nota erbacea amaricante.

750ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear golden orange with a finger and a half of fluffy, white head that thins to a thick film. Aroma is great with spicy notes of Belgian yeast, candy sugar, bubble gum, and orange citrus. Yum. Taste is well balanced. Bready caramel, candy sugar, clove spice, bubble gum, orange citrus, and spice laced ending. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Mildly syrupy in the mouth with a near effervescent carbonation. Overall really nice. Candy sugar, clove spice, bubble gum, orange citrus, and some nice caramel.
