COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

La Trappe Tripels 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

BritAlesRule (216) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2011 Most surprising beer at Trappist tasting 5/8/08 Colorado Springs. Nice golden appearance but the thing that got me right off was the nose. This is definitely the malt brother of the Quad, which I love. Fruit and light toffee, banana, rum, and sugar cookies. Taste is very close, though reduced some. Finish is bitterish which is nice for a beer this loaded with flavor. The Westmalle has better balance and subtlety, but I think I may choose this in a pinch over that classic and not have too many regrets.

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Bottle. Color is amber with a huge white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with notes of banana and citrus. Moutfeel is really sweet with a fruity and sweet flavor and a warm aftertaste.

thomat (3612) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
Amber color with a creamy, white head. Hoppy and spicy nose. Bitter, spicy with malt taste. High carbonation and a full body. Balanced, bittersweet finish.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Color is hazy copper-orange. White head is thick and lacy. Aroma is fruity and spicy with banana and alcohol. Sweet flavor is much fruity, spicy and yeasty. Maybe a bit wheat malty also. Aftertaste is quite dry, fruity and long-lasting. Medium-bodied, very smoothly carbonated and foamy palate. Alcohol can be felt but hardly tasted.

mikkopen (1113) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. Colour hazy reddish orange-brown, smal white head. Fruity aroma with some yeast and banana, a hint of lemon. Flavour is malty and fruity, with a nice sweet and warm aftertaste. The weakest Trappist beer Ive had so far, but still very enjoyable.

trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2008
Stonework bottel 0.5 l. Bought Kvickly Hilleroed. Color clear golden amber with white head. Pleasnat sweet raisinlike aroma with spicy notes - justa perfect note of corianter and alcohol. Taste is sweet,longlasting and slightly bitter, the coriander is by no means dominant but is present im a perfectly discrete way. Mouthfeel soft with nice carbonation. The classical deeds of the Benedicitins are kept in this beer - simplicity and love.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle. Head is quite small and dense. Liquid is a bit hazy and reddish orange/copper in colour. Rich and sweet maltiness with yeast and fruits like banana and some citrus fruits. Something "dark" in the malts, maybe burned sugar? Long and enjoyable finish with hoppy bite and some alcohol. Body is quite full and thick. Dries in the finish. Medium carbonation. Maybe a bit simple tripel that has great finish.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
On tap at St. Veronus. Not a chock full of flavour on this one. Very clear appearance (unlike most belgians). Smell is of sugar and molasses. Mouthfeel is very thin and flavours of yeast and white sugar (oddly enough) appear on the tongue. Wasnt too impressed. The quadrupel is leagues ahead of this one.

barncatmatt (2283) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 TAP at the castle on king. 6 oz taster. pours murky golden with an average white head. aromas of funky white wine, some sourness, fruit in the nose as well. flavours are yeasty, sour, funky, belgian candied sugar, vauge hop finish. it was drinkable with soft carbonation. ill try it again but it wasnt the best offering i had tonight. 7/3/7/3/12 BOTTLE. 750 ml bottle from the LCBO. Ive had this in the cellar for a while and cracked it with about 6 months on it. corked 07/08. the bottle wasnt sour like the tap version i tried. incredible soft and sweet. very refined with no alcohol present. nice to look at but lacking the dynamic flavour profile of a really good triple. a let down but still overall pretty decent. i still want to try this one again. 6/4/7/3/12
