Tourist Trappe was evaluated as a Trappist Ale (BJCP 2015 Style 26C, Belgian Tripel).  Lemony citrus notes on the nose are inviting, with hints of mango and Juicy Fruit. Light floral hops complement the very light bready note in the aroma. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a small white head of small bubbles that dissipates quickly without leaving any Belgian lace. The first taste brings lemon, hay, straw, and light bready notes, with just a hint of black pepper. A clean fermentation with a medium light body but some clean alcohol warmth that will sneak up on you. Not quite dry in the crisp finish, the beer has fairly low carbonation - could use a bit more. Enjoy this beer in a snifter by itself, or pair it with some kettle cooked barbecue potato chips or a spicy sushi roll.
