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.

pours a golden orange color with a large thick off white head. Well carbonated with a nice slightly hazy clarity about it.
A nice lemon zest aroma, malts and some earthy spicyness. Clove or banana esters are in there too.
A balanced taste with malts and spiciness but also some sweetness.

Tripel Perfection is a good Tripel, but it isn’t perfect for me. The spices didn’t jump out at me. It lacked a bite and was a bit of a letdown due to the name. All in all, it wasn’t terrible, just didn’t match my expectation.

Poured hazy golden color with a 2-finger white head. Aroma of orange and spices with a touch of yeast. Medium-to-full body, with a lightly dry finish. Flavor has a touch of licorice up front that gives way to citrus from the orange peel. The coriander shows some in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 01-23-2012 (Caged and corked bottle) When poured, the head is medium sized, frothy, very fizzy, and off-white. This beer has a hazy golden body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malty, floral, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sweet, light fruitiness, caramel malt, boozy, and spicy. The mouthfeel is lively and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is a sipping beer with a rather subtle taste for the style which leaves me disappointed as this is one of my favorite beer styles. I was expecting more than what I received which is short on flavor.

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.

25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy orange brown with a white head. Nose is yeast, toffee, orange and bubblegum. Medium body with a sharp buzz. Taste is orange peel, toffee, anise and grass. Cloying sweetness, bitter spices; typical tripel, better than most.
