Ommegang 2012 Belgian Independence Day Tripel

RATINGS: 55   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.55/5   IBU: 23   EST. CALORIES: 249   ABV: 8.3%
In honor of both its independence and its signature Tripel style, this Belgian style ale brewed with Belgian candi surgar and a combination of Ommegang, Duvel and Chouffe yeasts. A tripel, if you will. The unsung hero of brewing, the yeast strand dramatically influences the flavor and aroma profile of a beer. Three yeasts join here together to forge one remarkable brew.

Pour on tap, clear golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of earth, grass, herbal notes into some grain, biscuit, touch of white fruit into some sweet sugary malt. Taste was a mix of white fruit, sugary biscuit, vanilla, some honey into some grass, slight herbs, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

2012: as with just about everything they do, solid across the board. vibrant fruity aroma with a strong spicy yeast quality following in the flavor, and just a hint of funk and alcohol.

Transfer from BA review on 9-5-12- Served on tap in a snifter Appearance Pours a beautiful medium orange- amber color with a light haze and a one half finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to give a nice level of lacing Smell The smell is heaviest of yeast and strong notes of a lemon citrus. Mixed with these are some lighter sweet notes of orange and a candied sugar smell. Taste The beer starts with some of the sweeter flavors depicted in the nose along with a bready base. The sweetness is largely of a orange taste, but there are hints of candied sugar in there as well. As the taste advances however some of the sweetness fades. Some of the lemon citrus flavors as well as hints of the yeast hit the tongue. The light lemon hop and lemongrass flavor bitter the beer slightly. The orange sweetness is almost completely gone more toward the end, but the candied sugar sweetness gets stronger. At the very end of the taste there is a slight alcohol burn which in overall leaves a rather satisfyingly light warming, sweet, and somewhat sour candy flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is just above average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that runs the middle of the road. Very appropriate for the style and quite refreshing due to the carbonation, but with the creaminess the taste still really still sinks into the tongue. Overall This is a fantastic and wonderful brew. It has a wonderful taste and feel. Well done!!!

The fact that this is called an Abbey Tripel made me expect much, much more from it. If youve ever had Blue Moon Belgian White, then youve had this.

Draft. Pours gold with a nice white head. Grassy, sugary aroma. Pleasant slightly tart taste with a good dose of sugar without being overly sweet. Finishes nice and crisp.
