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.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2013
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled 3/15/2010. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass, with a decent amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of lemon, apricot, pepper, herbal, pear, candi sugar, coriander, bread, and yeast spice. Very nice and balanced aromas; with good strength and complexity. Taste of big lemon, pepper, pear, apricot, biscuit, coriander, herbal, grape, candi sugar, tart grain, and yeast spices. Lightly tart spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, pepper, coriander, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance of fruity sweetness and spiciness; with no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a nice fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel as expected for the style. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly an warming present after the finish. Very smooth to drink, but is still a bit of a sipper. Overall this is a highly excellent Tripel! A lot of great flavor; with nice spicy flavor balance and very smooth to drink. Ommegang needs to make a Tripel year round. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (1140) - 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 (853) - 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 (3668) - 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...

matty (384) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2016
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!

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours clear golden with a one finger white head. Aroma of banana, clove, coriander, little alcohol. Flavor more of the same, lots of pepper, little boozy, but surprisingly dry. Medium body, tasty tripel.

RhetoricalAns (889) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
750 ml bottle, shared. Slightly hazed golden pour. Thin sticky white head, good retention, spotty lacing. Sweet honey, cereal grain, some heavier malt. Some yeast in the aroma too, cloves, dough. some lighter herbal hops comes through in the finish. Nice dry finish despite some of the earlier sweetness. Very nice tripel in the end.
