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.

Draught at BTAH.

Pours a cloudy gold, with a fluffy white head.

Nose is classic tripel - apricot and spicy yeast, a bit of a dry sweetness.

Taste is orange peel and citrus, apricots and spicy yeast. Balanced by a fresh, grassy hop bitterness that starts to emerge about midway Bit of alcohol, but it largely keeps its head down. Finishes with a dry, lingering mild bitterness. Very refreshing for a tripel.

Crisp carbonation and a medium body.

The grassy hops and the citrus up front definitely lend a beautiful, almost saison-like refreshingness to this one. Really well done. (587 characters)

I had the good fortune to experience this one-off brew at Ommegang's "Belgium Comes to Cooperstown" Festival for it's debut in 2007 & again in 2008.

I was very impressed with the 2007 version however the ABV goose to 9% for 2008 served to round this out into a very fine Tripel. It had the warmth of the 9% but it was beautifully hidden. Excellent!

During a weekend filled with classic Belgian Tripels, this brew held it's own with panache.

Ommegang can stop the search for the proper receipe and get this little piggie to market! It is as good for it's style as their other offerings.

Rumor has this being bottled as a regular in 2009 finally filling the Tripel void in their wonderful repetoire. (701 characters)
