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.

a nice butterscotch color with a creamy white head and champagne carbonation. Pear banana and apple aroma with notes of corriander. A wonderful well balanced flavor. Silky smooth palate. Tastes of pear apricot and mild apple on the back end with corriander playing nicely with each flavor. This comes pretty close perfect.

Clove/Banana tones in the first sips that last throughout. A little too gassy that allows the alcohol to seep onto the tongue. Caramel finishes off towards the end. Doesn’t have too much of a sweet cloying presence but is heavy at first. A little bitter but that doesn’t last too long. Definitely a Tripel.

I don’t really rate anymore unless I can say some really nice things. That being said... Holds a head for at least 20 minutes. Deep orange with a lacy off-white head. Beautiful. Aroma is spices, piney earthy hops, nice grassiness with some aniseed and a touch of pear. Body is bone dry without any astringency what-so-ever. Great carbonatiion. The flavor is decidedly peppery, with no unpleasant malt sweetness. Finishing very dry with an incredibly high amount of bitterness without being biting. Seriously, this ranks in right up there with Westmalle, might be better. I don’t know the last time I had a Tripel this good. Bravo!

Tap at Butcher and boar and commonmac. Tulip glass. Nice gold pour with thick white head and good lacing. Slightly floral hop and alcohol aroma. Spicy coriander nose, like a saison. Fresh yeast and citrus spice, with sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Amazing.
