Tripel Trappist Ale

 
RATING
84

Of the seven authentic Trappist breweries in the world, the Netherlands’ La Trappe (Koningshoeven) is the only one outside Belgium. For a while, the brewery lost its certification, but with a renewed commitment to involve monks in the beer production process, it was once again granted certification in 2005. This beer pours energetically, with a sturdy, off-white head. The aroma is big, with an assertive alcohol presence
that distracts somewhat from the malt sweetness and spicy yeast character. In fact, the beer smells a
bit green. Initially, Tripel Trappist has a slight toffee sweetness, accentuated by ripe, red apples and honey. The hops here are distinct, their spice striking the tip and sides of the tongue. Finishing sweet
with a drawn-out hop and alcohol presence, the beer seems bigger than its 8% ABV.
