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°

Rich sweet, butterscotch nose. Similar up front flavour with a touch of fruitcake spice and jaffa. Commercial but drinks well....

Pretty hard to get that cork off! Once opened though, poured a nice off-white head with large bubbles. Mildly carbonated. Has a medium golden appearance. Moderate lacing. Aroma is wheaty, and notes of vanilla. Getting some roasted malts in the flavour along with hints of caramel, hops, various mild spices and herbs. Some bitterness at the start but gives way to a smooth velvety mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Bottle from carrefour@calais, France. Amber beer with small residual head. Aroma of spices, a touch of banana skin and malts. Taste is spices, malts, some yeast and a little caramel. Good amount of fizz on the palate. Good stuff.

L’excellente ’’maison’’ Trappe propose une Triple qui, étonnamment, reste il me semble un peu en retrait par rapport à certaines de ses autres productions (blonde, double, Isid’or). C’est une très bonne bière mais... (évaluation à retravailler)

Amber gold colour with white head. Aroma of roasted caramel, Barley malts, spices, citrus and coriander. The same are flavours, with sweet fruity notes, low carbonation. Good beer.

One of my favorite La Trappe beers. It has a typical taste for a Tripel, yet it has ’something’ that makes it special and will have you ordering more.

lesifflebiere (1391) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
Mousse à grosses bulles, laissant un collet mince en périphérie du verre ; le nez est de pêches et d’abricots, de sucre cuit, et le liquide lui-même est pratiquement limpide, couleur or jaune. Bouche tranchante, les houblons coupent le sucré des malts, tandis que l’alcool demeure en retrait. Les saveurs sont exquises, et si on lui trouve un ou deux défauts (un petit peu aqueuse, trop carbonatée), elle peut prétendre à être une référence de ce style, facile à produire mais difficile à maîtriser.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with small frothy head. Aroma is sweet and citrusy. Taste is considerably sweet with a fruity notes and almost a honey aspect. Nice.
