COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
La Trappe Tripel’s 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°

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2008
330 ml bottle. Amber color with an aroma of yeast and fruit. Flavor is quite sweet and fruity with banana and spices. Some alcohol is noticable in the taste. A decent tripel, but the Chimay White is better.

Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 29, 2008
Pours cloudy amber with good but brief white head. Aroma is fresh fruity, peach some orange and yeast. Flavour is moderately sweet, fruity (peach, raisins) with an almond note, low bitterness. Lingering moderately sweet and fruity finish. A very decent tripel.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 28, 2008
33 cl bottle, best before 02-2010: poured clear amber with a huge off white head. Drank at cellar temperature, about 68 degrees. Moderate bubblegum and dough aroma. The flavor? Pretty huge. Bubblegum notes, big alcohol, cognac-like flavors with not quite the alcohol. I would love this a little cooler but as it is, it’s pretty damn good.

Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours a clear, glowing orange-amber with a foamy, cream colored head. The froth settles to a thin layer rather quickly, with wet, sudsy lace slowly rejoining the body. Aromas include candy sugar, cereal grains, coriander, and orange peel. Some doughy yeast and peppery hops complete the nose. Flavors are bittersweet, with the saccharine candy sugar being countered by bitter orange peel and pungent, dry coriander. There’s an overall floral feel to this one. The palate is medium bodied, lightly syrupy, and somewhat cloying. Decent brew. Not really my cup of tea.

Smelled like wine but tasted phenominal. Probabley the best trappist tripel yet. Thanks to Deepak at Kingdom liquors in Brandon.

Bottle bright brown and a bit greenish, 750 ml
Appearance: Pours hazy orange, bright breakfest tea with the drop of milk like colour, carbonation of body is mild and gentle. head is dreamy in colour, medium to large and frothy, head has a fair lacing, head is mostly diminishing, in body colour there is something like the addition of a juice from wildberries or strawberries. Beer is medium to full bodied.
Aroma: Cookie, yeasty, fresh fruits, milk, honey, coriander, a sweet aroma of flowers, a hint of alcohol that is decreases to a minimum and very well build in considering it’s 8% content. Aroma is very complex, hints of grains, wheat grains, wood, strawberries, fructosis, a hint of hoppy nose but weak, the same with the carbonation, a bit bready (white bread), very weak barley malt aroma, a hint of grapes, butterscotch, brown sugar, very mild, light, gentle.
Flavour: Strong, full bodied, you can feel alcohol warmth on palate, texture is wattery but the taste is syrupy like. Very distinctive grainy taste on palate, like bread, alcohol is very well build in and is present with its warmth on the back of the palate and the throat, while the fruity taste develops on palate and in nose breath, hoppy nose, aroma is sweeter than flavour, bread accid, very intense, full and rounded, cognac, the yeast, fruit and sugar content lower than in Grombergen Tripel but have the bready taste is stronger and more decisive. Light bitter, light accidic and light sweet. Generally, very well balanced and rounded taste. Finish duration is long. Hoppy nose.
Palate: Body is full, texture wattery-syrupy, carbonation is soft on palate but the beer seems harsh. Finish feel is bready, alcoholic, fruity.

SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Pours a cloudy dark amber with a thick creamy off-white head that goes away slowly leaving behind some fantastic lacing. Beautiful! Lots of aroma coming through. Caramel malt, fruit, spice, yeast, and grain. Similar flavor. Very sweet at first but turning bitter toward the finish. Really a good Trippel.

rsamayoa (24) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle: After the double this is one is slightly behind, a bit too strong offsetting other flavors. Finish is a bit rotten.
