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°

Douberd (3050) - Arnhem, - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle of 300 ml at home, poured into a chalice. Honey like colour, with great activity in the glass and a white two finger head, with good retentionAroma of fruits like bananas, some yeast too. Great taste, sweet with lots of fruity notes, bananas again, bubblegum and maybe some caramel. Full body and average carbonation. A great beer.

Not convinced, maybe too bitter for my taste. Also the carbonation is quite strong. Don’t like the aftertaste.

33cl bottle poured into a trapping glass. Golden colour with a white head which quickly dissipates. Medium to high carbonation. Clear and golden in colour. Aroma if biscuit malt and fruit. Flavours of banana, vanilla, caramel. A full and fruity bittersweet trapping ale. Very good.

Bottle. I’ve had so many of these but just now getting round to rating it. It’s a bit of a regular. Often, halfway decent bars have La Trappe beers in their range. Deep Gold with a White head. Aroma is dry and spicy. White pepper and plenty of spicy Belgian yeast. Flavour has a wheaty banana vibe with caramel sweetness and a nice dry finish. Very good.

La Trappe tripel is a strong Dutch beer at 8%. Has a little bittersweet taste and does contain hints of coriander. Recommended to try.

Beardbeerman (237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
Pours a cloudy orange topped by two fingers of coarse bright white head showing good retention and lacing. The nose is fruity, but more on the side of citrus than the Isid’or. Mango and honey. The taste goes along the same path with a nice bitterness from the herbal hops. The brew has decent corpus and carbonation and rushes down the palate through a pretty dry grassy finish. Paris well with chicken or white fish. Cheers!

Aroma: Banana, citrus, honey, yeast. Appearance: Turbid golden beer with a steady white head. Taste/Palate: Slightly bitter, sweet and dry; really fruity, banana, citrus, honey, yeast. Overall: Really nice triple, not too heavy but still a good fruity taste.

pumpkinhead2 (508) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Bière jaune orangée, véritable or liquide, légèrement voilée, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un col blanc pas tellement large et moyennement dense, mais bien persistant. Arômes de pain frais et pâtisserie, malt mielleux et esters fruités (beaucoup de banane, un peu de poire…). Par moment, le breuvage semble également dégager des effluves d’un malt un peu plus rôti et fumé, d’alcool, et d’un certain houblon qui semble principalement floral. Nez moyen, complexité et intensité moyennes. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, breuvage plutôt mousseux, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, pain frais et pâtisserie, malt mielleux, esters de fermentation (c’est très banane!) et beaucoup (trop!) d’alcool. C’est tout de même pas mal sucré comme bière, et la fin de bouche amène un houblon surtout floral et peut-être légèrement poivré en route vers une finale légèrement amère, mais surtout alcoolisée. Intégration difficile des différentes saveurs, complexité moyenne, bonne intensité en bouche cependant. Tout juste une bonne bière, mais plutôt décevante à la fois pour une trappiste et pour une tripel…
