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

DenisLD (87) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAR 23, 2011
330ml bottle poured into a chalice glass. Early 2010 release.

A surprisingly muddy deep amber colour. The head retention and lacing are impressive, though.

The aroma is not that intense, possibly due to the age of the bottle. Still, Im able to get some nice fruitiness, with apple and pear notes, as well as a bready yeastiness and some caramel.

This is not your typical tripel! More on the fruity and malty side of things, with almost a candied apple kind of taste to it, with some hop bitterness at the back. A little peppery and moderately sweet. Closer to reaching the bottom of the glass, I started to get a more white wine kind of texture to the beer.

Medium-bodied. The alcohol can be felt, both in the body and on the palate. However, overall the mouthfeel is quite balanced, with just enough of everything: sweetness, bitterness, spiciness...

Drinks well, though not as smoothly as, say, Chimay White or other Trappist tripels.

Overall, this was quite different from your typical quality tripel, but I still liked it.

From bottle. Apperance is golden, clear. Aroma fruity, sweet not very strong. Taste sweet and quite bitter to be a triple. Or perhaps simply on that side of the continium of triples. It lacks a bit of the acid that the ones I would call the very, very best have. But it is truly an excellent beer.

Solide bire trappiste. Dapparence dore trouble, sous une fine couche de mousse, elle exprime des armes de fleurs et de crales en bouche. Peu damertume pour une triple, malgr un fort titrage. Trs douce au palais, on ne garde en bouche que son gout printanier.

Nederlandse trappist van de Koningshoeven. De tripel drinkt lekker weg. Smaak tussen zoet en bitter. Minder uitgesproken dan de meeste trappisten.
