4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

750 ml bottle from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield Ohio. Clearance for under $5.00 a great bargain! Pours a cloudy amber gold with a white head.

Little lacing in the glass. Nice bitterness at the finish. No alcohol burn at all. Very nice beer. mansquito (6787) - 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 (1397) - 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.

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. badgerben (5281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Hazy gold color with a large head. Aroma of floral hops and spice. Light coriander. Strong honey, biscuit, and yeast flavor. More coriander. Full bodied. Seems sweetish. DYCSoccer17 (3705) - 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 (443) - 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!
