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°

Up front: I’m biased towards tripels. Hands down my favorite style of ale. This beer displayed an exceptionally smooth taste with hints of fruit. The flavor was not overpowering and in general, this beer came off as a solid choice for those of you who enjoy the taste of ALE rather than the accents involved in any given ale.

Âmbar, boa formação e persistência de espuma, turva. Aroma bastante condimentado, e cítrico, compota de cítricos, laranja, casca de pão escuro. Aroma idem. Boa carbonatação, corpo médio-alto. Amargor médio-baixo. Aftertaste aquecedor, baste persistente. Boa cerveja. Tripel bem condimentada.

fkoolen (419) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Cloudy orange colour, white foamy head. Typical La Trappe yeast character in the nose and taste with banana, vanilla, spices and light bitterness, good grainy and creamy malts, quite boozy. Dry and fruity sweet finish. Good body, relatively high carbonated, soft mouthfeel. Classic Trappist tripel.

baraciisch (2159) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Pours golden in color with generous foamy white head... Gentle citrus aroma with hints of hops, flavor is slightly bitter and less sweet and balanced compared to other tripels I’ve had, but it finishes nicely with minimal bitterness on palate... Alcohol content not terribly well concealed and I thought it had more than the 8% written on the bottle... Otherwise pretty average for a tripel, prefer their quad

ttoadee (787) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Light tan pour, small off white head. Nose is alcohol, whiff of hard fruit, and grain. Bittersweet. Middle is pears, melon, and a soft grain profile. Finish is dry.

mzaar (1833) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2015
Flaska. Lätt dimmigt guldfärgad öl med ett stort vitt skum, som aldrig riktigt sjunker ihop. Dofter av örter, koriander och frukt, främst citrus. Smakinslag av citrus, persika, örter, jäst och gräs. Lätt beska, väldigt behaglig maltsötma. Alkoholen döljs väl. Gott. Mycket gott.

Oginme (54) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 14, 2015
750 ml bottle: Poured golden with nice white head, Mild aroma: malty, herbal, slight citrus. Taste: mild malt flavors almost cookie-like, slightly sweet, slightly grainy finishes very dry with slight coriander taste. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Just a little hop bitterness present. Very balanced and easy drinking.

Piwo również ma pomarańczową i mętną barwę, piana bardziej przypomina tą w szampanie niż w piwie, jest sycząca, obfita (wylatuje z butelki po otwarciu) i szybko opadająca do cienkiej koronki. W aromacie całe bogactwo owocowych estrów (zwłaszcza morele i brzoskwinie) i belgijskich drożdży. W smaku lekka owocowa słodycz przeplata się z kwiatowością i trawą cytrynową oraz nutami siana, a całość kontrowana ziołowo-alkoholową goryczką. Dość wysoka pełnia, przywodząca skojarzenia z domowym winem z głogu czy winogron, jednak aftertease jest zadziwiająco orzeźwiający i lekki. Alkohol niewyczuwalny, nagazowanie średnie. Klasyka w bardzo dobrym wydaniu, nic dodać nic ująć, zarówno deserowe jak i orzeźwiające belgijskie piwo od holenderskich zakonników - polecam.

bonkiedeaap (350) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Had several bottles from different places before rating. The beer is dark blonde colored and pours a large white head, with a lot of living co2. The aroma is slightly grassy and hoppy, with the fruitiness of tangerine and citrus. Coriander gives more freshness to the beer. Fresh and soft bittersweet taste. Light fruit notes of dried fruits like apricots. Slightly dry finish with delicate bitterness. Very nice tripel from my country. One of the better ones we have.
