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.

Huhzubendah (2668) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2012
A: Tripel Perfection is a light orange color and appears hazy. A typically large, fluffy, white head is perched atop the beer. The head retention is very good and leaves some quality lacing behind. S: Citrus, yeast, alcohol, spices. Smells like a tripel. T: The beer has a lot of flavor, with nice notes of citrus and spice. However, I find it to be a bit too sweet for my liking. M: Medium body, with a good feel, though again, a bit sweet. D: An OK beer and a decent example of the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-10-2010
