Tasty tripel, but alcohol was a little upfront for my tastes. Not surprising at 9 %, and considering I was drinking at 50 F when recommended serve is 40 F.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Don't recall the date, but recent release.

A: Hazy, light honey-colored body with 1.5 fingers of clean, slightly rocky, white head. Good retention. Nice lacing.

S: Very fruit-forward yeast with elements of banana, apple, pineapple, other tropical fruit. Typical Ommegang yeasty spice. Coriander. Faint floral hops.

T: Spice and fruit open with less sweetness than expected. Vanilla and banana. Hop presence brings a mild bitterness that is perhaps a bit more than average for the style. Fairly dry finish. Mild alcohol presence. A bit of astringent bitterness lingers in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Compared to your average Belgian tripel, the carbonation is slightly less and the body is slightly fuller.

O: Not quite as complex as a top tier tripel, but very respectable outing for a stateside brewery. On par with the majority of Ommegang's stuff.

Prost!
