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°

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.

Nice Tripel beer. Little sharp on the nose, but with good bitter finish. Round taste makes this a pretty good Tripel.

Kita (991) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy pale amber color with medium frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, coriander, herbs, fruits and caramel malt. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, follows by yeasty acidity and alcohol warmth, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is light hoppy. Medium to full body, dry texture and average carbonation in palate. Another good guy in the La Trappe family...

Expectation from this beer was kinda "possibly best tripel yet". Aroma of coriander is clean and noteworthy. Sheer, if you like this spice. Spicy aroma with hints of hops. Full body. This is what i like the most from this beer. MAlty bitterness is too distinguished and ... doesn’t math this beer as for me. Below expectations :(

Bottle 33cl. Dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of banana, sweet malt and trappist yeast. Rich taste, sweet but has a slight bitter finish, not strong though.
