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°

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.

Aromat: intensywne brzoskwinie i przyprawy, w tle banany. Wygląd: barwa ciemno złote, piana na początku obfita, potem szybko opada. Smak: wytrawne, brzoskwiniowo-przyprawowy, w tle banany, pomarańcze, goryczka niska, brak alkoholu. Tekstura: średnio pełne, wyscenie średnie. Smak: bardzo dobre, mocno aromatyczne, alkohol świetnie ukryty, mimo wolatażu piwo jest zdardziecko pijalne.

Dorata un pelo torbida, schiuma poco persistente. Aroma di caramello, spezie. Frizzantina, buon corpo, al palato malto in abbondanza e una leggera secchezza. Alcol ben sorregge la bevuta. Ottima tripel.

From Hipercor. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Sons of Anarchy. Good tripel. Specially great in its aroma, which is deliciously sugary. Nearly no foam

Bouteille partagée avec Marco. Bière orangée et trouble au-dessus de laquelle s’est formé un mince anneau blanc. Une forte odeur de bonbons et de gomme balloune jaillit de mon verre et me fouette en plein visage. Tout ce que je déteste se retrouve ici. Du sucre; des jujubes à la framboise en forme de pieds. Je note aussi la présence d’abricots séchés, de raisins secs et de fruits confits. Lourde, sucrée et huileuse, je refuse de croire que cette bière était bonne. Il faudra que j’y regoûte et serai heureux de modifier mon commentaire si besoin est.

Bierdimpfe (51) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
Clear, while slightly hazy, golden color with a straw hue. Gorgeous white 3 finger head lasting 5 minutes. Tons of activity. Pleasant aromas and flavors of fruity citrus, malt and some spices. More sharp than sweet with a well balanced intensity. Faint alcohol smell and aftertaste. Slick medium body with a prickly champagne like feel. Pleasant smooth bitter finish with a dry spicy mouthcoat. Overall : A very good flavorful tripel with a harsh alcohol feel, and slightly too spicy for my taste.

High carbonation. Needs to be warmed up a bit after being taken out of fridge to get a better taste.

Een zware Hollandse trippel. Zeer diep aroma en smaak, weinig schuimkraag, wel lekker.
