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.

Pours a slightly hazed amber brown with a tan head. Nose is the typical Belgian yeast with a touch of sweetness, but seems to be pretty weak. Flavor is smooth with a sweet start. On the end I got a bit of a metallic edge, which I cant say I appreciated too much. Feel is standard. Typical stuff. Its definitely drinkable. I consider this more of the type of brew that neither tries to stand out far ahead of the crowd or is too immature to be crap. Smooth and even. Its a balanced brew. It wont blow your socks off, but it is even enough to keep you satisfied.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Pours a dark amber, with a decent white head. The aroma is a candy sugar, sour fruit, and yeast. The taste is pretty much the same as it smells.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2007
750mL bottle, no date. Clear orange amber with a 1 1/2 finger yellowish white head that fades to a film fairly quickly. Candy sugar, fruity yeast consisting of pear and apple, a bit of spicy pepper and some stale herbal hops. Hints of plastic are also present. Flavor is much the same with some definite alcohol presence, though nothing crazy. Some light ripened bananas add to the candy sugar sweetness, but the hops do a good job of keeping things balanced (not too sweet), barely earthy, and herbal. There is something in here I cant put my finger on that Ive had in many beers, so well come back to it if I remember throughout this bottle--update--is it brown sugar and/or juicy raisins? Semi-dry peppery finish. Moderate carbonation with a medium to full body--seems to be a bit flatter than most tripels Ive had. A solid beer, though nothing phenomenal.

pjweaver (136) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Pours a dark honey orange/bronze with a lightly off-white head. First taste bursts with spice and pear tones with a little citric acidity. Heavy body for the lighter color with a clingy palate and muted tangy taste afterwards. Overall a nice tripel, and worth the haul back home.

Enjoyed this as Koningshoeven. Wounderful sweet fruity aroma with a dark orange color. Strong, spicey pear & honey flavor with a nice alcohol back drop. Warming and rich.
