Tripel Perfection. An audacious claim based on three years work at happily perfecting our take on a tripel. 8.9% ABV, lush aromas, full body, elegant tastes – with a hint of spicing – and a perfect body paired with lively effervescence.
The tripel is among the most popular of Belgian ales. Brewed with simple ingredients and fierce attention, there is little room for error, but plenty of opportunity. Perfection isn’t easily achieved – but once achieved it is always memorable.

Well done Ommegang, that’s really all that needs to be said. Crisp, nice hop profile, and just enough subtle sweetness. Well balanced, and definitely one of the better of some of the newer offerings from Ommegang.

rondphoto (2600) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 17, 2015
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.

drpimento (2386) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2015
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.

On tap at PNP Charleston. Hazy golden with medium white head. Aroma is golden with medium white head. Aroma is nice banana, medium body, medium/light carbonation, and thick small-bubble lacing. Taste is fruity (mostly banana), some yeast, some alcohol, with a dry finish. Not my kind of tripel.

nearbeer (3997) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2015
750 ml. bottled Nov 13, 2014. Pours mostly clear and light amber. Beautifully active body supports an enduring, creamy film of cappuccino-like foam and leaves a perfect cobweb of sticky, sugary lace. Nose is sweet and spicy with flowery honey, white grapes, clove, citrus zest and apple bubblegum. Flavors of dried apricot, pear bubblegum, clove, honey, white wine, citrus zest, wood and a pinch of white pepper. Medium body has a smooth medium-high carbonation and a sweeping spicy-dry finish that balances the front sweetness in fine fashion.

DrSilverworm (7922) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2015
750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Date stamp is difficult to read. ".3/14" ? First part is kind of blurred/stretched out. Enjoyed from a Chimay Goblet. Hazy orange color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Leaves good ridges of lace. Looks pretty good, aside from being a touch darker than I’m used to for a tripel. Pours with moderate-plus strength carbonation, but not uncomfortably nor unnecessarily strongly carbonated (like some belgian beers can be). Medium to bigger body, good full feel. Mildly dry finish. Really fantastic big, bright complex fruity flavor. Definitely different than your typical tripel, but it’s a good thing, much more interesting. Much more of a bright citrus aspect that is really pleasant. Mild spiciness. Banana bread. Seeing the (mild) pear. Nice mild biscuity malt breadiness. Love how this manages to be not too sweet unlike most tripels, the nice mild dry finish is pretty pleasant. Just a moderate sweetness, and a moderate bitterness, with a pleasant very mild warmth at the end. Very easy and pleasant to sip on overall. A fantastic tripel. Better than expected.

BadAprilia1000 (340) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a crystal clear golden color with a large white pillowy head. Aroma is herb, clove, malt, apple, pear, yeast, bread, spice, lemon, coriander, bread. Taste is bread, apple, pear, spice, clove, coriander, lemon, orange peel, pepper, herbs, slight honey sweetness, yeast. Overall a good tripel although not my absolute favorite, was expecting slightly more from Ommegang.

Bottle picked out by my wife, pours gold, passes minimal light through, thick off white head. Big mouth of clove, mild biscuit. Full body, mild booze burn.

revolution2718 (313) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours hazy golden with nice fluffy head. Something seems off here. First impression was buttered popcorn, diacetyl, an off flavor. I get some of the spicy yeast, apple, but I can't get past the buttered popcorn. I love ommegang, I've been to the brewery, but something is definitely wrong here. Batch brewed 11/13/14, bomber.
