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 (2580) - 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

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 20, 2012
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy with a frothy top finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy and a good lacing. The aroma was malty and woody. . The deep flavor contained notes of candy hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

superspak (2636) - Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2012
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled 3/15/2010. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass, with a decent amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of lemon, apricot, pepper, herbal, pear, candi sugar, coriander, bread, and yeast spice. Very nice and balanced aromas; with good strength and complexity. Taste of big lemon, pepper, pear, apricot, biscuit, coriander, herbal, grape, candi sugar, tart grain, and yeast spices. Lightly tart spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, pepper, coriander, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance of fruity sweetness and spiciness; with no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a nice fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel as expected for the style. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly an warming present after the finish. Very smooth to drink, but is still a bit of a sipper. Overall this is a highly excellent Tripel! A lot of great flavor; with nice spicy flavor balance and very smooth to drink. Ommegang needs to make a Tripel year round.

scarletfire65 (959) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange, fluffy head which quickly recedes. The aroma is bread, Belgian yeast, apples. Medium to full bodied with high carbonation, giving it a great creamy, even chewy mouthfeel. Flavors of yeast, crackers, apples, honey. Nice crisp hoppy finish, with some fruity esters becoming apparent as it warms. A really nice triple. Perfection? No. Very Good? Yes.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle:   Amber, little bit of fireweed honey like hues, moderate sudsy white head, falls quickly, moderate carbonation, sparce lacing.   Expected a bit more head with this one.   Bready nose, slight cheese, a little barnish, some alcohol.   Sweet maltiness up front, slightly grassy, a little mealy, some alcohol is noticeable.   Has a cheezy backside.   Not as floral as I would hoped.   Seems more mealy than floral.   Not very bright, but at least its not all that dull either.   Seems very American, but better than most.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   As it warms it picks up more alcoholic cheese.   Tiz okay, but not as good as Allagash when it comes to American made Tripels.
