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

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 On tap @ In De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Light brown body with off-white quickly disappearing head. Caramel and fruit aroma. Taste is candysugar-sweet with malts and alcohol. Quite light mouthfeel. Finish is short and dry. Nice but too straightforward and plain for a tripel. . . . . . . . . Re-Rate 29.07.07. 750 cl corked bottle cellared for 18 months. Big fluffy lasting off-white head. Clear dark copper colored body. Very aromatic. Peach and marzipan up front followed by scents of toffee, caramel, malt and yeast. Malt, candy-sugar, acdic fruits and alcohol in the flavors. Hints of yeast. Very mildly hopped. Medium body. Dry, fruity finish.

Holy dogshit, Belgium! Only God-fearers and great beers come from Belgium, and this doesnt look like a God-fearer to me, so that kind of narrows it down. Now this is a Tripel as our poetic-metaphorical God wanted it to be brewed. Amazing stuff. Cloudy, deep-gold/orange appearance, lasting froth, gooey candy aroma, a flavor that defines the essence of Tripel goodness, soft and gooey, goes down like liquid butter its so smooth. This is a new Ultimate beer for me. How does it get any better for this most wonderful style?

Dark plum colour, thick white long-lasting foam. Aroma of ripe fruits, grape, apple. Bittersweet flavour, figs and chocolate in the aftertaste.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2006
nice caramel color, nice fruity taste to it, all around good beer to drink with fine blue cheese and pat de foie gras. Not the best, but definatly one to try with the hole collection, the third of four.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
On tap at lbaren (2005). Pours dark golden in colour with a large head. Malty and sweet with notes of caramel. A bit too alcoholic and sweet for me.

Tmoney99 (14206) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle from Koningshoeven 4 pack. Poured a cloudy light brown with an average fizzy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malty, tart citrus and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration.

Funky sourdough aroma emanates from this cidery hazy brown colored beer. It tastes somewhat better than it smells, with fast fleeting malt, and little else. Only $2.30/11.2 oz, and still not a bargain in my book.
