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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange to yellow colour, nice thick head on top and good lacing too. Aroma has summer fruits, grassy hops, spices and some yeast. Taste has quite a lot of yeast, spices and nice fresh fruits. Medium body with high carbonation. Nice tripel, but the taste could’ve been more fresh. Now the yeast dominated the flavours a bit too much for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mooie diepe oranje kleur en cremekleurige schuimkraag. Hele lekkere trappist met smaken van (hazel)noot, marsepein, caramel en heel klein bittertje. De bieren van La Trappe (en dan vooral de tripel en quadrupel) zijn een genot om te drinken en zeer zeker aan te raden !!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange with a long lasting white head. A crazy amount of active carbonation visible in the glass. Aromas of yeast, and some light citrus and spices. Has a very fizzy carbonation and a surprisingly light mouthfeel for a beer boasting 8%abv. Has a rich, yet dry taste, very easy drinking.
