COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegang’s 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.

Approximately half of a 25.4 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-24-15. Yeasty aroma features scents of perfume and golden raisin. Good tripel smell. Smells authentically Belgian, not like a poor American imitation. Pours a cloudy pale with suspended particulate. Highly effervescent. Large amount of fluffy, long-lasting, nearly white head with black speckles. Sugary (brown sugar) taste features a white wine flavor. Excessively sweet. Medium body. Fizzy in the palate. Overall, this is a decent beer. It’s generally inoffensive though sweeter than ideal. Unmemorable.

Tripel Perfection is just what I expected—great. It pits beautifully and tastes just as smooth as every other beer Ommegang has ever made. Definitely worth buying again.

Hazy orange pour with a thin off white head .... Aroma of oranges, candi sugar, fruity yeast, coriander, light lemon and caramel malts .... Taste is of sweet caramel malts, spicy coriander, orange peel, light lemon, candi sugar, fruity yeast and a spicy bite on the back end as well .... Has a fizzy mouthfeel ... Finishes lightly bitter and spicy ... Well balanced and the abv is hidden well

Cybercat (6013) - Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2015
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 I’ve tasted. The beer is named appropriately.

ChainGangGuy (4919) - 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.
