4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I don’t really rate anymore unless I can say some really nice things. That being said...
Holds a head for at least 20 minutes. Deep orange with a lacy off-white head. Beautiful.
Aroma is spices, piney earthy hops, nice grassiness with some aniseed and a touch of pear. Body is bone dry without any astringency what-so-ever. Great carbonatiion. The flavor is decidedly peppery, with no unpleasant malt sweetness. Finishing very dry with an incredibly high amount of bitterness without being biting. Seriously, this ranks in right up there with Westmalle, might be better. I don’t know the last time I had a Tripel this good. Bravo!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Tripel Perfection is a light orange color and appears hazy. A typically large, fluffy, white head is perched atop the beer. The head retention is very good and leaves some quality lacing behind.
S: Citrus, yeast, alcohol, spices. Smells like a tripel.
T: The beer has a lot of flavor, with nice notes of citrus and spice. However, I find it to be a bit too sweet for my liking.
M: Medium body, with a good feel, though again, a bit sweet.
D: An OK beer and a decent example of the style.
Serving type: bottle
