COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tripel Perfection. An audacious claim based on three years work at happily perfecting our take on a tripel. 8.9% ABV, lush aromas, full body, elegant tastes Ė with a hint of spicing Ė and a perfect body paired with lively effervescence.
The tripel is among the most popular of Belgian ales. Brewed with simple ingredients and fierce attention, there is little room for error, but plenty of opportunity. Perfection isnít easily achieved Ė but once achieved it is always memorable.

Tap at Butcher and boar and commonmac. Tulip glass. Nice gold pour with thick white head and good lacing. Slightly floral hop and alcohol aroma. Spicy coriander nose, like a saison. Fresh yeast and citrus spice, with sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Amazing.

Tap at Butcher and the Boar with the commonshawn. Tulip glass. Very attractive pour. Almost a full finger head on a light golden colored tripel. Aroma has some spice elements with an undercurrent of earthy hops smelling similar to other tripels. Taste has a welcomed tartness offsetting an underlying malty sweetness and hop bite. Really smooth and easy to drink with just a touch of alcohol burn at the end. I donít like the word perfection as there is always room for improvement but this is a pretty near perfect effort. Complex and enjoyable. Similar to a Goose Island Sofie.

onceblind (4521) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Hazy deep golden with a large fluffy white head. Wonderful nose of clove and golden toast and pilsner grain and hay and a light belgianesque fruity ester. Nice clovey wheaty flavor with a big boozy pilsner and toast malt tone with a lovely peppery note, a touch of bubblegum and loads of belgian tree fruit yeasty ester. Very lovely tripel.

750ml found on sale for 5.50 - score - I remember a time when that was a fairly regular price for an Ommegang 750 - sigh - those were th days - anyway - pours a hazy gold - the pour is initially rather fizzy, but eventually settles to a thin lace - aroma is fairly sweet baked apple, but wit some rustic phenolics and spiciness to balance - there are also some touches of vanilla, along with underlying notes of banana and clove (which I am not a fan of in my tripels) - moderately frothy texture - flavor is sweet overripe apple and pear, a touch of honey - this is followed by some dusty yeast and spicy/peppery phenolics - some floral bitterness on the tail end, with some lingering vanilla sweetness - not exactly how I like my tripels, but itís pretty solid.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
pours a golden orange color with a large thick off white head. Well carbonated with a nice slightly hazy clarity about it. A nice lemon zest aroma, malts and some earthy spicyness. Clove or banana esters are in there too. A balanced taste with malts and spiciness but also some sweetness.

dlovell2 (887) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Poured into Ommegang glass. Pours beautiful cloudy golden almost peach color. Fruity and bready yeasty aroma with some cloves. Flavor start fruity. A bit of sweet pears and apples. A little bit of pepper bite and some tartness. Spicy yeast in the back with a little tartness. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Tripel Perfection is a good Tripel, but it isnít perfect for me. The spices didnít jump out at me. It lacked a bite and was a bit of a letdown due to the name. All in all, it wasnít terrible, just didnít match my expectation.

Tap. Pours cloudy orange with small white head. Nose is some spice and fruit. Alcohol also comes through. Pear comes through in the flavor with a little bitterness.
