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°

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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale golden with a white top. Aroma is sweet with hints of clove and apricot. Taste is lightly sweet. Some bitterness in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, high co2.

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.

huineman (31) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 3, 2015
Cloudy golden amber showing greenish shades. Abundant ivory head. High aromatic intensity: pastry, banana, liquorice, coriander, white flowers, greek yogurt. Powerful, with a sweet touch in its first approach. Fresh, with umami notes on the tongue. Balanced, well developed bitterness. A very elegant beer.

Vraiment très sucrée au nez! C’est clairement le genre de bière qui ne m’invite pas trop à continuer l’expérience. Je me lance quand même... En bouche l’alcool bien présenté et le corps agréable viennent sauver la donne : ça demeure trop sucré pour moi mais l’ensemble se débrouille correctement. Cela dit, leur quadrupel est de loin meilleure, à mon avis.
