3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

La Trappe Tripel is een heerlijk biertje met een lichte fruitige smaak en het reuk vermogen sluit daarbij aan

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Lys gyldengulbrun. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Svakt uklar. God sammensatt krydderaroma. Smaken er søt frukt med en undertone av krydder. Avslutter litt tørt. Bra øl men ble litt for søt.

This is what I expect of abbey tripel. Fresh citrusy-fruity aroma with light alcohol. Taste swetish but also a bit sour. Good carbonation. Not too strong alcohol. Could have a little bit more body. Overall great beer.

Malty, caramel, some hints of fruits, warming mouthfeel afterwards. Too weak for such a high carbonisation. Overall drinkable and quite decent beer, but not so ballanced as I thought it would be..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - hazy amber with a barely present head. I think it was white but it fizzles away so quickly I barely got chance to check. Aroma of grass, gingerbread and coriander seeds. Some alcohol makes its way through as well as some ripe banana. Taste of bready yeast followed by blackcurrant, treacle and plum. Some light toasty malts complement, alongside spice and medium bitterness to finish. Lightly warming with some medium sweetness. Medium body, high carbonation.

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