3.93/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

poured from a 750ml bottle into a 2L beer mug.

A - Pours a crystalline, just slightly hazy orange amber with two thick, luxurious fingers of soapy head that linger forever. Looks delicious.

S - A bit too boozy on the nose, with a very slight hop character and that familiar tripel candy sweetness.

T - Smooth, malty, sweet, and slightly spiced. Also an overtone of citrus. Pretty darned refreshing and satisfying.

M - carbonation is modest and body is light. Little bit of alcohol burn.

Overall - It drinks really easy for its ABV, so be careful. I polished off the whole bomber without problems. All in all, It's a good baseline representation of the Tripel style. It tastes great but is otherwise not unique. If that's your jam, you will like this one. But if sweet, spicy Belgian ales are not your thing, this one won't convince you otherwise. There are beers I'd buy over this one, but I'd never turn this one down if offered. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

I picked this up in an Omegang 3-pack at Costco around Christmas. Thick 750 ML corked Belgian bottle poured into Omegang glass that came with the 3-pack (what a deal!). Its a slightly hazy orange-hued golden ale with faily high carbonation and thus a substantial and long-lasting head. Typical Belgian aroma that conceals the spices really well. Very nice honey and spice, and very well balanced. The spice is muted in the taste until the beer begins to warm up, then the spice becomes apparent but never overwhelms. Excellent mouthfeel. Overall a super enjoyable tripel.

Poured from 750 bottle into a willi becher glass.
Pours a hazy tangerine with two fingers of head. Great retention.
Smells nice. Fruity, spicy, sweetness.
Tastes really nice as well. Coriander comes through, some good honey sweetness.
Finishes well, a hint of sweetness on back of the tongue.
Overall, a very enjoyable and flavorful tripel.
