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°

Superbe présentation de bouteille avec blason en relief et le mot Trappist. Couleur dorée vraiment très soutenue, quasi ambrée. Carté nette. Bulles assez grosses mais très nombreuses et vivantes. Mousse blanc beige qui nappe à 2 mm, soyeuse. Arômes de nougat, prune blanche, poire, orge, pointe de framboise et coriandre. Volume soyeux de la 1ère bouche, qui offre une très belle entrée en matière sur des céréales avec un houblon entre l’amer et l’aromatique. Arrière-bouche un peu épicée, jolie. 2ème bouche douce-amère, pointe de fruits à l’alcool, coriandre. 3ème bouche offrant une très belle suite équilibrée mais forte, vigoureuse. Une bouche en fait de céréales et de saveurs aromatiques. Longueur qui développe l’ensemble, et qui révèle une belle fraîcheur tout en étant sur des bouches très pleines. Un savant dosage !! Levure de très belle veine, douce, définie, pure. Alcool très progressif, parfait Finale qui montre encore une facette différente, genre malt à whisky. Conclusion : encore un miracle trappiste, parce qu’on ne trouve pas d’équivalent à cette bière chez les autres trappistes. Donc spécifique, belle, pleine, fraîche et aux arômes savants.

Tap @ Bier Markt - Absolutely incredible. Deep color, rich slightly sweet taste with notes of fruit, particularly bananas. Smooth and easy to drink despite the strength. Would have given it a perfect rating except I had their Quadruppel immediately after and it was even better ;)

A very nice beer, with a taste of fruit (nuts), round i the taste, and a soft feeling in the mouth while drinking it.

Floral Aroma, Defined orange color, slight off white head - didn’t last long. First taste - Burst of hops. quite sweet. Tasting continued Linger - salty flavours ? not much bitterness... Lots of fruit hints thru out.

Nice amber-orange color.Aroma is quite complex (banana,bubble gum first come to mind).Flavor starts with lots of fruits (banana,peach,orange) with the yeast,coriander and clovy taste showing at the end.Very well-balanced and enjoyable.

Probablement ma préférédes des quatre de La Trappe (embalage cadeau). Riche, épicé, fruité, bonne. Et ça ne veint pas de la Belgique.

Holy dogshit, Belgium! Only God-fearers and great beers come from Belgium, and this doesn’t look like a God-fearer to me, so that kind of narrows it down. Now this is a Tripel as our poetic-metaphorical God wanted it to be brewed. Amazing stuff. Cloudy, deep-gold/orange appearance, lasting froth, gooey candy aroma, a flavor that defines the essence of Tripel goodness, soft and gooey, goes down like liquid butter it’s so smooth. This is a new Ultimate beer for me. How does it get any better for this most wonderful style?

Pours a hazy amber with a fair amount of sediment Sweet, fruity, bubblegum aroma. Fairly well carbonated with a well balance sweet/bitterness. The taint reminds me of a lollipop. Must be the candi sugar. However it is not as sweet as some triples. One of my favorite beers.
