COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegangs brewers spent several years refining their ideas of what a "perfect" tripel would be. In the original style, a Belgian tripel is a golden ale, from 8.5% to 10% ABV, with fruity flavors and aromas coming from the yeast. Tripels are simply brewed, but with great attention to detail. Ommegang Tripel Perfection goes beyond the exquisite attention to detail and adds spices to subtly enhance aromas and flavors. The result is a fine ale honoring Belgian brewing tradition, while also expanding on it in the new Ommegang tradition.

mansquito (6067) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2017
From a variety pack: pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is quite spicy, fruity, sugary, not boozy. Taste is rather thick, sweet, and spicy. Hefty body. Lingeringn coriander aftertaste. A rather proper tripel.

tightslice (1177) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is bready, spicy yeast esters, citrus, light floral coriander. Taste is crisp and spicy, but also soft. Amazing mouthfeel and just enough character to be special but also very drinkable. Lemon zest, crackers, light pepper, spiced lemon cookies, maybe some peaches. Awesome.

jsporrer (929) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Pours a bright golden amber with a big white head. Light carbonation with some lacing. Strong aroma of coriander and celery. Fairly smooth with a taste very similar to a Witbier. Lots of coriander flavor and a slightly dry finish. Light sweet bready aftertaste. Not my favorite style. Ok but not great.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 7, 2017
750mL bottle. The aroma has some spicy white pepper character along with some metallic hints and some esters with hints of clove. Hazy golden-orange body with a medium, strong, fizzy white head. Starts with a bit of a bitter, earthy hop character. Some metallic character comes through in the middle before a little sweet lemon takes over. Finishes with a more bitter flavoring. The mouthfeel on this is just exquisite. Really good, if not on the hoppy side...

750 mL bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a quick white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma has some sweet fruit, spice and yeast along with a little sourness. Medium body, plenty of carbonation on the tongue. Flavor is a nice combination of malt and yeast producing fruit, spice and a touch of sourness. Finish is sweet and a little sour on the sides. Excellent!
