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°

Bottle. Pour an maber-like body, with a huge white head that diminishes fairly slowly, but stays until I finish my glass. Aroma dominated by yeast, some malts too, but nothing too special. Very nice medium bitter taste, with notes of malt. A little bit alcoholic as the beer gets warmer, but the beer hides the alcohol very well, quite warming. Heavy bitter finish. Oily texture, medium body, medium carbonation. Very nice.

edsspoon (331) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle - hazy amber with a barely present head. I think it was white but it fizzles away so quickly I barely got chance to check. Aroma of grass, gingerbread and coriander seeds. Some alcohol makes its way through as well as some ripe banana. Taste of bready yeast followed by blackcurrant, treacle and plum. Some light toasty malts complement, alongside spice and medium bitterness to finish. Lightly warming with some medium sweetness. Medium body, high carbonation.

Nice Tripel beer. Little sharp on the nose, but with good bitter finish. Round taste makes this a pretty good Tripel.

Kita (1000) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy pale amber color with medium frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, coriander, herbs, fruits and caramel malt. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, follows by yeasty acidity and alcohol warmth, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is light hoppy. Medium to full body, dry texture and average carbonation in palate. Another good guy in the La Trappe family...
