Share This Review

Tourist Trappe is a Belgian-style Tripel brewed by MIA Beer Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a can.

Appearance

The Tripel pours a clear golden-orange hue and is topped by a finger-thick cap of fizzy white foam. The reduction leaves behind a bubbly ring and patches of sticky lace.

Aroma

The aroma is sweet with fruity esters, a touch spicy with phenols, and somewhat boozy.

Flavor

The palate is sweet with pear and orange mixed with bready malt. It’s balanced with peppery spice, herbal hops, apple acidity, nutty yeast, and some booze.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a medium body and prickly with high carbonation. Finishes dryly with a moderate warming sensation.

Overall

It’s a little on the sweet side but it does have enough balance. Its lofty ABV is managed fairly well. Considering that it’s from Miami with such brightly-colored packaging, one might not expect that this could be a good Belgian-style brew. But the Tourist Trappe is an all-around solid Tripel.
