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 – with a hint of spicing – 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 isn’t easily achieved – but once achieved it is always memorable.

Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, cardamom, coriander, vanilla, and toffee. Taste of citrus fruits, honey, vanilla, coriander, moderate hopping, and toasted dough, with a bit of alcohol in the finish.

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 it’s 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.

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 isn’t perfect for me. The spices didn’t jump out at me. It lacked a bite and was a bit of a letdown due to the name. All in all, it wasn’t terrible, just didn’t match my expectation.

BillWyce (729) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Poured hazy golden color with a 2-finger white head. Aroma of orange and spices with a touch of yeast. Medium-to-full body, with a lightly dry finish. Flavor has a touch of licorice up front that gives way to citrus from the orange peel. The coriander shows some in the finish.

hotstuff (4139) - Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Rated on 01-23-2012 (Caged and corked bottle) When poured, the head is medium sized, frothy, very fizzy, and off-white. This beer has a hazy golden body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malty, floral, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sweet, light fruitiness, caramel malt, boozy, and spicy. The mouthfeel is lively and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is a sipping beer with a rather subtle taste for the style which leaves me disappointed as this is one of my favorite beer styles. I was expecting more than what I received which is short on flavor.
