Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

What a beer. Climbed it's way up into the top 3 tripels for me.
I love the taste and aroma. The aftertatse just leaves me wanting more and more. I have to pace myself on this strong beer.
I do wish that more bitterness came through, but it doesn't detract from this one. It would have simply added to it.
I am loving this brew right now.

Very nice beer! In our local beer tasting pub 't parlement they have a lot of choice but when I am in doubt I take this one or the regular La Trappe, depending on the Quantity I will drink:).

Full flavor and harmonious in all it's ways. Better than most trapists and goes to a triple Karmeliet but less herby.
