COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured into Ommegang glass. Pours beautiful cloudy golden almost peach color. Fruity and bready yeasty aroma with some cloves. Flavor start fruity. A bit of sweet pears and apples. A little bit of pepper bite and some tartness. Spicy yeast in the back with a little tartness. Perfect for a hot summer day.

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.

Tap. Pours cloudy orange with small white head. Nose is some spice and fruit. Alcohol also comes through. Pear comes through in the flavor with a little bitterness.

BillWyce (698) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2014
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.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
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.

Beautiful, fresh aroma of grass and light citrus. Pours a bright but opaque gold. Full bodied belgian with a subtle flavor.

bigguns22 (624) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2014
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.

TheEpeeist (3281) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2014
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.

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2014
750 ml. bottle shared, and poured to snifters displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a nice layer of silky, white head foam, and strands & spots of lacing. The nose was light yeast, subtle spice, soft malt, and pleasant esters as apricot/peach & lemon. Light bodied, with lively effervescence that was almost fizzy, the taste offered similar notes as the aroma, a soft silkiness to the mouthfeel, and a finish that was lightly dry & crisp. Pleasantly impressive!
