COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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°

yespr (31496) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge, dense and light orange head. Classic caramel malt and mellow yeasty spice note, in addition there is a mild orange peel note. Flavour starts with a soft caramel and sweet malt flavour. A mellow yeast note appears which takes some fruity and spiced notes into the finish. Soft finish leaving the impression of a smooth triple, a bit dull compared to other examples within the style.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 A cloudy orange beer with an OK head - but it disappears quit fast. It has a very fresh fruity and yeasty aroma with hints of alcohol. The flavor has an alcohol sharpness but is very pleasant fruity with hints of yeast. It’s a pretty sweet beer with almost no bitterness. The fruit taste lingers pretty long.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy golden, almost coppery with a handsome yet not very stable head. Very fresh and fruity nose, with some yeast. Weak caramel notes with a touch of something tart. Different impressions pointing in different directions. Overall still a wellmade - if not exactly harmonious - beer. 170200

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized creamy beige head. Fruity, sour aroma with some hints of stingy alcohol as well as earth. Fruity flavour with hints of raisins, licorace, spices, yeast and sourness. Also some slight alcoholic sweeness. Dry long fruitish and spicy aftertaste. Smooth palate.

omhper (19705) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2007
Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear ddep golden, very brief head. Nice buttery malt mixes with almody yeast in the nose. Sweet with above medium body and rather soft mouthfeel. Mild flavours of Old English Marmelade and flowery yeast. Not the most adventurous of tripels, but a solid effort that I certainly wouldn’t mind paying for again.

Hazy gold - amber beer. Tidy white head. Palate is crisp and slightly dry. Minerals. Sweetish malt, typically tripel like! A little spice and light floralness and banana ester. Finishes with sharp carbonation and a flash of peach. A little thin but tasty!

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2002
Gold colour. Some malt aroma, not expecially interesting. Warm malty sensation, quite good taste, with a sweet liquorice hint. Only partially balanced by the bitternes, the palate is ordinary. Pleasant to drink, but nothing really remarkable.
