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

Bottle. Spicy (nutmeg, pepper, anise) dried fruit aroma. Peach-amber color with moderate head and effervescence. Sour corn malt flavor primarily with raisin, peach and pepper notes and a light bitter finish. Has quite a bit of lager characteristics in the flavor - sort of like I spiiled some MGD into a decent tripel - very strange for a Belgian style beer. Okay taste but man I dont really get the lager flavor and had to knock off some points for that.

Dark copper appearance with a medium size tan head. Sweet smelling, yeasty, fruity aroma. Taste was malty, spicy peppery and modestly sweet. Well carbonated, medium to full bodied mouthfeel leading to a long lasting, dry, fruity finish.

Pours a more amber color than most tripels...and has a good looking head...unlike the other two konings Ive had...it actually had yeast floaties too. This beer actually smells a bit trappist...yeast, candi sugar, and some dark fruit. The flavor is not overwhelmingly great...but it is very balanced. Spicey, yeasty, sweet, and fruity. Mouthfeel is considerably thick compared to most of the triples Ive had.

11.2 oz. Not sure how old this is - it still has the La Trappe label on it. Pours a dark amber, one o the darkest tripels Ive seen. Small quickly diminishing head. Smell is earthy, carmel, heavy yeast/biscuity - very appetizing. Initial taste expodes in the mouth - earthiness, sourness and a light nutty flavor. Light sweetness, not as sweet as most tripels. Strikes me more of a Belgium strong at this point that a tripel, its probably the aging. Enjoyable.

Nice amber colored pour with a nice tan head. Malty yaeasty aroma slightly spicy as well. Sweet malty, spicy and a little fruity taste. I liked this.

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2006
Rather clear amber colour with a big, lacing head. Nice yeast and fruity hop aroma with pepper. Sweet and fruity flavours, with peppery hoppiness providing offsetting dryness. Full body. A good tripel, but not the best.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours a coppery, whisky color (with thick legs to match), a haze of large particulate and a small, cream-colored head that fades fast to a halo. Caramel malted aroma with pear, pepper and white wine. Smooth, thick body with a fluffy lift to finish. Flavor is sweet malted fruitiness with earthen and woodsy notes, ending with grapeskin. In a word, relaxing.

1st pour from a 750 ml corked and caged bottle produced a very clear bright dark orange into my snifter. It had about a half of an inch worth of head which lasted a bit and settled down into a thin layer of foam. Nice carbonation can be seen and felt. It smells lightly of banana and other fruits. The taste is of sweet banana and the finish is somewhat dry. Finishes real clean for the initial flavor. 2nd pour from same bottle yielded a cloudy orange class full of particulates. The yeast got out. The aroma is more intense, but the flavor remains about the same.
