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.

Very good Belgian beer. Has a strong flavor to it but it is still pretty smooth. It is a bit cloudy when you pour it. I would recommend it is you like tripel’s

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Color is dark gold with lasting head in a snifter. Aroma is sweet grain, citrus and just a bit of the house yeast.
The flavor shows a sweet grain base with honey notes, apricots skins, Apple and a very mild spice toward the finish. The alcohol is very mild with a slight warming after the sip. The texture has a chewy yeast character with a creamy carbonation level with a mild tingle over the tongue. Ommegang used to be a go-to brewery for me and this beer makes me remember why I liked them so much. A very well executed example of the style and very tasty. I could drink the whole 750 myself.

Pretty nice. Light hint of citrus with good florals and light coriander. Pours hazy rich orange with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Soft carbonation. Palate is lighter than I like in triples but still well balanced and well done. Tap at Scion.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber color, white head that drops to the rim, tiny lace dots. Taste is fizzy caramel malt with a bit of spice. The runs smoothly through the palate to a finish with a modicum of bittering that keeps all in balance. A solid Belgian.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice beer. Appearance is a long lasting thick off-white head, some lace, and a slightly hazy color. Aroma is yeast, wet grain, malt, spice. Flavor is like nose with carbonic tang up front with a bit of sweet that builds along with the bitter and has a long finish. Clean. Great body. Very easy drinking.
