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.

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.

750ml bottle 1/9/16 (Binny’s)-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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. It’s generally inoffensive though sweeter than ideal. Unmemorable.

Tripel Perfection is just what I expected—great. It pits beautifully and tastes just as smooth as every other beer Ommegang has ever made. Definitely worth buying again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden that shades towards bright golden at the bottom. Buff head is thick and frothy, but effervescent. Yeast, banana, pear and fresh malt comprise the tempting aroma. Flavor presents the same chord as the aroma, satisfying if not spectacular. Mouthfeel has OK fizz and good body. Maybe not perfection, but definitely worthy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lemon citrus candy sugar Belgian yeasty aroma. Taste is the same, but not that sweet on the candy sugar. Almost has a slight earthy funk to it. Nice triple overall, but not the best. Maybe the funky spice is the licorice root? Does have much more of a spice than other triples. The more I drink the more the licorice spiciness comes through. Not sure if I like that spice in the triple? Still a well made beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
