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.

Pours clear golden that shades towards bright golden at the bottom. Buff head is thick and frothy, but effervescent. Yeast, banana, pear and fresh malt comprise the tempting aroma. Flavor presents the same chord as the aroma, satisfying if not spectacular. Mouthfeel has OK fizz and good body. Maybe not perfection, but definitely worthy.

Lemon citrus candy sugar Belgian yeasty aroma. Taste is the same, but not that sweet on the candy sugar. Almost has a slight earthy funk to it. Nice triple overall, but not the best. Maybe the funky spice is the licorice root? Does have much more of a spice than other triples. The more I drink the more the licorice spiciness comes through. Not sure if I like that spice in the triple? Still a well made beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a nice white lacing. It has fantastic carbonation. Aroma is spices and dried apricots. Sweet taste making one of the best beers Ive tasted. The beer is named appropriately.

ChainGangGuy (4873) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2015
11 ounce pour - $10.00 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Deep golden-hued body, lightly hazed beneath a fine, white head.

Smell: A sweetish, perfumy, heavily phenolic bouquet with its boosting spices, some citrus and some addling alcoholic updrafts.

Taste: Honeyed maltiness, lightly bready. Moderate sweetness of blonde syrups. Slightly tangy in taste. Generously phenolic, abundant in clove, coriander and pepper. Bitterish, redolent dried citrus rinds. A little harsh and biting in the booze factor leading to a somewhat sharp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body, fairly smooth on the tongue. Medium carbonation.

Overall: For me, it fell more than a bit short of its boastful moniker and price-tag.

Pours orange, fluffy and fine white head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Tastes of banana, fig, peach, funk, grass. Dry finish and lovely bottle conditioned carbonation. Great, but not perfection IMHO.

This one poured out with a really nice looking yellow gold color. There was a nice hazy to it and a fluffy white head on top as well. The lacing was a little sticky on this one which was pretty nice. The smell of the beer was full of yeasty aromas and some soft spices in the mix. The taste of the beer was was a little tart upfront, nice banana presence, after it warmed it got better. The spices came out a little more and the sweetness of the grains did too. The mouthfeel of this beer was very drinkable, soft and refreshing. Overall I thought this was a really nice Tripel.

Very good Belgian beer. Has a strong flavor to it but it is still pretty smooth. It is a bit cloudy when you pour it. I would recommend it is you like tripels

Perhaps not the perfect tripel but quite tasty. Deep gold with a big off-white head. Yeast, fruit, spice and a touch of honey sweetness.
