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.

Pours dark orange, very fizzy with very little head. Fizz went quickly leaving it smooth to drink. Caramel malt nose. Tastes initially sweet then follows up with a nice bitter finish. Nice, but not the best trappist tripel.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2008
Muddy orangey brown sewage color with hardly any head. Ugliest tripel I have seen. Cotton candy and bubble gum nose. Thin, waxy palate. Malty, tropical fruit framework. Very sweet. Quite possibly an off bottle.

Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a thick creamy white head, yeasty, bready dough, cheesy nose, with some orange, citrusy, fruity accents, a mild floral hop apricot accent, with some honeyed malt notes in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, toasty, fruity, cheesy character, with some candied orange peel, marmalade fruitiness, some honeyed pale malt, caramelized malt accents, a nice carbonation balance, with a subtle floral hop citrusy, leading towards a malty, fruity, faint hop bitterness finish.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2008
Dark hazy orange with a large off white sustained head. Floral peachy aroma. Soft fruity flavour, peach and lemon, caramel and a lot of esters. Soft full body with a very gentle carbonation. A complex and interesting tripel, nicer than some of the other trappist versions.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a golden color with very little head. The color looks a lot like the Blonde. The flavor is sweet, bitter and fruity and tastes like apples and bananas. It has a short aftertaste.

A delicous, light, buttery and banana infused (very banana) tripel. A nice night cap when you are not in the mood for a Quad or something like a barleywine; creme brulee of tripels.
