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°

I can’t recall having as much difficulty with a corked and caged bottle as I had with this one. Perseverance paid off and we were greeted by a attractive glass of marmalade-orange color with a thick, frothy off-white head. The head dropped fairly soon leaving lots of lacing. The aroma of the Koningshoeven was a sweet fruitiness with yeast and mild pepper in the background. The flavor has fruit at the forefront; oranges and apples, and not overly sweet. Hop bitterness is restrained. There’s a very nice malt balance to the flavor with a slight pepper note added in the aftertaste. The 8% ABV was very well-masked in this Belgian triple. Mouthfeel is moderately thick and creamy. There’s just the right amount of refreshing carbonation.

hohops (125) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Appearance- clear, golden/amber, half a finger white head which fades away to nothing quite quickly. Aroma- spice, malt, orange peel, fruit juice, zest. Taste- full bodied and a bit creamy, fruity hints, sugary sweetness, long finish, stewed apple hints, orange. Very good, not quite in the class of a Tripel Karmeliet though.

Senka (345) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2014
30cl bottle. Fruity, mildly yeasty tripel. Pours gently cloudy, golden, with zero head (pour it from high above to have head if you prefer it - frothy and beery). Yeast present in all the stages, and it is enjoyable within this beer. Quad is still more closer to my taste than tripel or dubbel, though they are both good beers.
