La Trappe Tripel’s aroma is slightly malty and estery. This ale owes its crisp and spicy character to the use of coriander and other spices and herbs, as well as to post-fermentation in the bottle.Despite its full, rich flavour, this out-of-the-ordinary ale still has a light and dry aftertaste with a touch of bitter finesse - Rate Beer.
Hazy gold in colour, with a thick, log-lasting head; aromas of rich malt, banana, grapefruit and pineapple, with underlying floral notes; medium-bodied, with fine-textured carbonation, moderate bitterness and excellent balance; malty and fruity flavours with a hint of nutmeg.
The style “Tripel” generally means a beer that is golden in color and strong. Like most Belgian or Benelux ales, it’s also bottle conditioned (as are all Koningshoeven ales) which means that living yeast are in each bottle and produce the carbonation in the package. This yeast is normal and healthy, as well as rich in vitamins and minerals. If you notice a thin layer of sediment in each bottle, it’s due to this yeast.
