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°

Poured from 750ml bottle into stemmed wine glass. The color pours a golden amber with white frothy head that lingers. The aroma is dominated by alcohol and coriander. Banana, clove are cleansed by alcohol and moderate carbonation making the beer full bodied with a long finish. Overall, one of the best Tripels around.

Birra dal colore biondo velato con riflessi aranciati; schiuma abbondantissima. Al naso predominano miele e leggeri sentori di frutta sotto spirito, confettura di pesca ed albicocca. Corpo medio, con una carbonatazione abbastanza elevata. In bocca è dolce, pur mantenendo una certa gradevole secchezza che non la rende stucchevole; malto, frutta sotto spirito e una leggera tostatura con l’alcool che è molto ben nascosto. Buon finale secco, che pulisce bene il palato lasciando una leggera nota erbacea amaricante.

750ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear golden orange with a finger and a half of fluffy, white head that thins to a thick film. Aroma is great with spicy notes of Belgian yeast, candy sugar, bubble gum, and orange citrus. Yum. Taste is well balanced. Bready caramel, candy sugar, clove spice, bubble gum, orange citrus, and spice laced ending. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Mildly syrupy in the mouth with a near effervescent carbonation. Overall really nice. Candy sugar, clove spice, bubble gum, orange citrus, and some nice caramel.

Orange color, medium white head, huge amount of carbonation. Aroma of fruit with spicey notes. Medium sweet, with strange harsh aftertaste. Harsh aftertaste ruins it.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Semi hazy, golden with a medium size head. Sweet malt aroma, apple and banana. Taste is spicey with fruit. Smooth mouthfeel. Hiding the alcohol very well.

Lovely fruit notes form a good aroma. Foam is compact and persistent. The taste is alcohol heavy but also has wonderful fruit notes along the pear and banana with a little fresh hint of coriander. I think, however, that the spicy light hops end also resulted in the used Belgian yeast, which then adds its dry aftertaste where the hops are slightly breached. It is extremely complex and very tasty, although it may have been a little gentle compared to what you would expect from a triple.
