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°

DenisLD (87) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAR 23, 2011
330ml bottle poured into a chalice glass. Early 2010 release.

A surprisingly muddy deep amber colour. The head retention and lacing are impressive, though.

The aroma is not that intense, possibly due to the age of the bottle. Still, I’m able to get some nice fruitiness, with apple and pear notes, as well as a bready yeastiness and some caramel.

This is not your typical tripel! More on the fruity and malty side of things, with almost a candied apple kind of taste to it, with some hop bitterness at the back. A little peppery and moderately sweet. Closer to reaching the bottom of the glass, I started to get a more white wine kind of texture to the beer.

Medium-bodied. The alcohol can be felt, both in the body and on the palate. However, overall the mouthfeel is quite balanced, with just enough of everything: sweetness, bitterness, spiciness...

Drinks well, though not as smoothly as, say, Chimay White or other Trappist tripels.

Overall, this was quite different from your typical quality tripel, but I still liked it.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Fruktig i doft och smak utan någon jästighet. Lättdrucken

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2015 Per essere una birra trappista, mi aspettavo un sapore più complesso, ma in fin dei conti rimane un’ottima birra

Confesso que esperava um sabor mais marcante, por se tratar de uma trapista. Porém ainda é uma otima cerveja!

Not convinced, maybe too bitter for my taste. Also the carbonation is quite strong. Don’t like the aftertaste.
