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 isnt easily achieved but once achieved it is always memorable.

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours clear golden with a one finger white head. Aroma of banana, clove, coriander, little alcohol. Flavor more of the same, lots of pepper, little boozy, but surprisingly dry. Medium body, tasty tripel.

RhetoricalAns (835) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
750 ml bottle, shared. Slightly hazed golden pour. Thin sticky white head, good retention, spotty lacing. Sweet honey, cereal grain, some heavier malt. Some yeast in the aroma too, cloves, dough. some lighter herbal hops comes through in the finish. Nice dry finish despite some of the earlier sweetness. Very nice tripel in the end.

MarkBarnes (407) - Waterville, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2016
May 24, 2016; bomber purchased at the brewery. Heady pour & outstanding aroma. Remarkably peppery, spicy & bitter. Love the Ommegang brews (and tripels) as a rule, but the astringency of this one may take some getting used to. Perhaps because Id just finished a Unibroue La Fin du Monde before cracking this bottle. Would definitely give this another go (and a re-rate).

oldrtybastrd (5000) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a bright golden yellow color. Active carbonation throughout the session. Aromas of hops, fruit, and a little yeast. Has a light fruity citrus taste, with some yeasty notes, and a good hop flavor.

JPDIPSO (5569) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2016
Hazed, deep golden color with a smaller, but fairly stable milk colored head. Pale malts, light fruit, touch of floral hops, bit of doughy yeast. Not a strong tripel scent, but a balanced and quite enjoyable sniff. Hope the sweetness is not all in the flavor. Light sweet start. Pale malt and light clover honey. Spices work their way in with light cloves and cinnamon. Hints of herbal hops. Dries out in the finish and the linger is very dry and nearly woody. This is my type of triple. Nice malt base, hops undertones, and mild spice. I actually bought two bottles a number of months ago and the first one, while still good, seems a bit sugary. This has dried out nicely. Very enjoyable. 7/10

GJF (1507) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bomber from Benz. Cloudy yellow, small white head. Malty, slight sweetness with a large yeast flavor--some coriander, clove, and banana. More hefe than tripel to my tastes, but solid.

Headbanger (3803) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2016
750ml bottle 1/9/16 (Binnys)-42 in Tulip-Pours a cloudy orangish yellow with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander, citrus, and malts. Taste of the same with some grains, grass, spices, and hay coming in as well. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and is easy drinking. Great Brew.

b3shine (8045) - Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2016
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a hazy apricot with ample foamy eggshell head and lively carbonation. Smells semi-sweet and bready with notes of pear and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, and with some spice as well. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. Solid beer.

islay (2155) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Approximately half of a 25.4 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-24-15. Yeasty aroma features scents of perfume and golden raisin. Good tripel smell. Smells authentically Belgian, not like a poor American imitation. Pours a cloudy pale with suspended particulate. Highly effervescent. Large amount of fluffy, long-lasting, nearly white head with black speckles. Sugary (brown sugar) taste features a white wine flavor. Excessively sweet. Medium body. Fizzy in the palate. Overall, this is a decent beer. Its generally inoffensive though sweeter than ideal. Unmemorable.
