3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle: pours a hazy golden yellow with white thick head that doesn´t stay long....aroma is spicy (the esters I guess) and malty towards bready maybe even toasty(light toast), some unripe banana aroma as well........medium to light body, a little creamy or oily...taste is malty,a little dried fruit, caramel definitely but the fizzy, prickly carbonation kind of dominates......slight bitterness that gives way to the lingering warmth of alcohol

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oranssinrusehtava, samea olut todella paksulla ja kermaisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu aika mieto, hedelmäinen ja makeahkon maltainen.Maku maltaisen viljainen sekä hieman hedelmäinen. Loppupuoleltaan aavistuksen mausteinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Tämä on jälleen perinteistä La Trappea, eli ihan toimiva, mutta hieman yksiulotteinen ja se "jokin" puuttuu.

Pours hazy gold with anoff white head. Malt, fruits and fig aroma. Taste is malt carmel and fruits. The high carbination takes away from the flavours and kinda spoils the beer for me.

Orange color. High carbonation. Aromas of caramel and bubblegum. Higher sweetness, but finishes dry. Some light, tart citrusy notes. Quite spicy from the phenols. Very tasty tripel, but most are.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy golden color with medium white head, creamy and long lasting. No lacing. Nice smell of malts and yeast, subtle and not imposing.
Medium body with soft and prickly carbonation. Watery texture that turns into oily within a second. Tastes quite sweet with slight bitterness and alcohol burn on the tongue. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, a bit peppery and spicy. Beautifully balanced.
Overall, really nice tripel. Delicious.
