Netherlands
latrappe.nl

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.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of grain, honey, fruit, earth, and slight yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, fruit, honey, spice, earth, yeast, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid aromas, but there is a slight cardboard flavor that makes this one seem like it's a bit old.

Serving type: bottle.

"Authentic Trappist" the Monks have nailed the recipe, for the 500th year in a row! Fabulous!

From the bottle, it pours amber with a small head, although bubbles continue to flow as you enjoy the beer. I note banana in the nose, with fruity tastes and a bit of pepper in the mouth. Enjoyable!

From Hipercor. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Sons of Anarchy. Good tripel. Specially great in its aroma, which is deliciously sugary. Nearly no foam
