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.

Appearance: cloudy, pale orange body with a good sized, off-white frothy head; long lasting and good lacing; very effervescent

Smell: pale malts; citrus; belgian yeasts; coriander

Taste: very nice! Big hit of citrus right off the bat with spices and yeast; juicy malts lead quickly into a good hop bite; finishes semi-sweet with a slight bit of hops lingering

Mouthfeel: slightly creamy, but with a good amount of carbonation

Remarks: Delicious. Bought in a big bottle 3 pack with Ommegang glass for under $10 at Sam's Club. What a deal!

On tap poured into a snifter

Hazy yellow with a generous white foam cap and nice lacings.

Aroma of orange, coriander, herbs and sweet malt.

Full mouthfeel with plenty of active carbonation. Hint of alcohol

Good tripel worth repeating, two or three more times..

Solid gold in color and a bit hazy. A prodigious head forms and lasts for ages. Very nice lacing. Yeast and spice notes are dominant on the nose. Clove, coriander, and, more subtly, some dried orange peel. Nice, bright aroma with just a subtle hint of alcohol

Malty sweet flavor with just enough hop bitterness for balance. Kind of a dull finish. Fruity and malty with some candi sugar I think. Golden raisin, white grapes, and herbal hops are what I'm getting. Full in body with alcohol warmth but no solvent-like fusel notes. Very well carbonated but soft and sudsy.

This is a really good traditional tripel that does nothing wrong. Highly recommended.

Appearance: Nice golden color, fluffy white head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Sweet fruity malts, Ommegang yeast character, a little bit of spice

Taste: Again, sweet fruity malts up front with the signature Ommegang yeast character. Some spice, coriander, clove

Mouthfeel: Medium body, full champagne-like carbonation, semi-dry finish

Overall: A fantastic take on the classic Tripel style from a favorite brewer of mine. The shift up in price for Ommegang means I'm not buying as much, but I'm glad I picked up the holiday 3 pack for a price I'm used to.
