COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
La Trappe Tripelís 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. 17.5į

Nice color, but head didnít pour very thick and faded fast. Aroma is strong, caramel and butterscotch. Taste is a bit mellower, but on target for the style. A pretty good tripel.

33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@ approx 10 degrees C. Pours amber with correct off-white head. Faint aroma of malt and yeast. Carmel taste, rather heavy and sweet with malt and grapefruit notes. Lacks the freshness of the top tripels.The aftertaste is a lingring bitterness, almost quinine and like biting into citrus pips. Too bitter by far to be pleasant in my taste. For my money there are other tripels out there which are much better balanced.

750ml bottle from Halles St-Jean shared with wife. Aroma: lemon, candide, spices, Belgian yeast. App: cloudy golden with small white head, some big bubbles in the head. Taste and palate: medium to full body, high carbonation, light sweetness, a tad dry, warm alcohol finish. Overall: a good representation of the style. Think the body could be bigger still enjoyed it. Not expensive for the style.

branko (45) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 26, 2015
0,33 bottle. Golden color with thick white head. Banana, little honey in the background, hay aroma. Fruity, medium sweetness at the begging, little stronger bitterness at the middle, thin alcohol in the background, makes mouth dry.

PapaSkeetSkeet (983) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Gold with a centimeter of off-white head, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is sweet raw grain and hay with slight banana and peach. Like a fake banana candy flavor. Body is oily-starchy, moderate weight. moderate carbonation, coarseness, and burn. Flavor is some banana-peach and phenols as well as a crisp grass hops finish with raw oat-wheat bran. Overall, a pretty good tripel; could be a bit more crisp, but the yeast flavor is pretty good. Despite the phenols, itís on the Belgian side of the flavor spectrum. Nice!

migwell (71) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Well, itís OK, not anything special in this category. Pretty dry with a taste of hay. Dry and quite spicy at the finish. Itís not that I dislike this brew, but for the money, you can do better. If someone dropped off a truckload of this in my driveway, Iím sure Iíd manage to get through it in a year or two. Still, one can do better for a tripel.

Lawger (177) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark gold with two fingers of fluffy white head. Malty bouquet with medium intensity, some yeasty fruit, bananas and a hint of peaches. Medium bodied palate with some boozy heat, maltiness and fruitiness. Medium+ finish with low bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka do 11.2015r. Złote klarowne, piana średnia, pozostaje z postaci cienkiej tafli przykrywajacej piwo, ale trwała. Aromaty winne, drożdzowe, owocowe. Piwo wytrawne i owocowe w smaku. Wysyceniw wysokie, wrecz musowanie w ustach.

Beautiful Trappist beer. I think La Trappe has beaten Rochefort as my favorite. Went to the brewery today, so much atmosphere. Back to the beer. Beautiful clear golden/orange. There isnít much foam, after a few minutes a thin cover of soft foam covers the beer. The flavor is divine. Little sweet in balance with a little bitterness and a touch of sour. The beer is quite sparkly. The aftertaste is one of the best Iíve ever tasted. The delicious aromaís stay in your mouth for minutes.
