Fanfreakintastic. This is one of my favorite tripels. I've had most of them, including ones ordered from the abbey and sent to the US. Look is 24k gold in a glass. Smell is like some delicious apricot/honey treat. Taste follows, with a nice alcohol zing that perfectly compliments it and balances the sweetness out. Just world class stuff. Same goes for their quad.

Hazy golden body blushing with a touch of orange. Softly aglow. White head that fell to a film and ring. Clings in sheets and spots as it refreshes. Nose is a touch of hop herbal. Lemony fruit. Then herbal peach and apricot backing starts to come forward. Spic. Finishes sweeter but dries out. A culminating bitterness and hop pepper. Moderate carbonation.

750 ml from the LCBO. Stored in my cellar for 18 months. Pours a hazy pale orange with little head. Goes down smooth with a bite at the back of the throat. Very enjoyable on a hot late spring day.

Can't believe I hadn't had this one yet. Maybe I just forgot to rate it. Any who, had on a nice spring day yesterday, and to be honest this didn't seem like your typical tripel. More clove and bannana flavors, almost like a tripel-hefeweizen crossover. Still pleasant though, with dryer and light finish on the feel. Smell was floral and perfume like.

From the 750 ml bottle in a snifter. This fine tripel pours a chill hazed
golden tinged amber with a nice head of white foam that subsides to a
thick ring, thin light layer, nad showcases some nice light lacing. Nose of
sweet candy malts, subtle spice, and light fresh bread notes with subtle banana
and light clove. Flavors exceed the nose with herbal clove and coriander notes
mingling nicely with a candy and honey malt that is lively on the mouth feel with
fresh baked bread flavors and phenol notes of banana and traces of clove and
coriander with a moderate herbal hop note on the rear and sides of the taste.
Very nice body with medium high carbonation that is lively and refreshing, medium
light body that is uplifting, and a lightly sweet and herbal tinged finish.

Overall, a SOLID drinker that is worthy of the la Trappe moniker.

Cheers

It pours hazy orange color with small sized head. Darker than other trappist tripels. Foam leaves a cover on top, but lacing is weak. Yeasty and malty smell. Tangerine, honey-like malts and pepper are on the nose. Taste is moderately sweet and fruity at first, but finish is dry and spicy. Thin body with lots of carbonation. Abv is well hidden. Not a game changer, but it's highly drinkable and delicious refresher.

Best by November 2018. Pours cloudy orange, nice head of foam, good lacing. In my LT chalice. Smells malty, of brown sugar, Belgian yeast and spices, slight hop bitterness. Tastes of caramel, candi sugar, esters, light perceived bitterness. Very very light oxidation. Medium body with exuberant carbonation; all the La Trappe beers open with nay a hiss yet the carbonation always turns out to be lively.?? Nice Tripel.
