COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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°

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.

A beautiful new penny light copper body, is crowned by a gorgeous white head. None of the over foaming head that plagues too many Trappist beers IMHO. Cereals and bananas dominate the aromas. A little bit of spice, but nothing that is overpowering. Glad of that as I wasn’t in the mood for a Christmas beer. Surprised that this is crisp and clean and only lightly creamy on the tongue. Very tasty malts, (I’m not a Malt Maniac, but this stuff is tasty) and there is a deliciously pleasing sweet banana finish. Quite impressed with this one.
