4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

What a great triple. Deep yellow color with huge white thick head. Aroma is crisp and yeast heavy. Big hop and yeast flavors with a nice sweet and peppery finsh. A beer that will run well with the true belgium beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. bottle shared, and poured to snifters displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a nice layer of silky, white head foam, and strands & spots of lacing. The nose was light yeast, subtle spice, soft malt, and pleasant esters as apricot/peach & lemon. Light bodied, with lively effervescence that was almost fizzy, the taste offered similar notes as the aroma, a soft silkiness to the mouthfeel, and a finish that was lightly dry & crisp. Pleasantly impressive!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle, new label (not the one pictured). I’d never had this before. Poured a nice hazy golden color. Had a smell and feel of Saison Dupont, but a bit heavier and less funky. Not sure if it was the same yeast or what. Nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into the Ommegang glass that came with the gift pack. Rated from the middle of the bottle. Let it set a while. A hazy medium yellow brew. White head that settles. Better once the carbonation dies down a bit. Strong fruity-spice aromas and flavors. Great yeast profile. Hints of licorice notes. Finish is slightly bready and yeasty bitterness. Good stuff.
