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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Came out of a corked 750 mL bottle, lured into a snifter (no clean goblets). May have slight effect on overall experience, suspect not much though.

A: Hazy golden body, fast building white head, rapidly dimished to a small remnant on the surface. Some lacing on the glass.

S: Fruity scents of pears and apples. Slightly sweet scent from the candi sugar. The smell in general is not intriguing or complex.

T: The fruits are pronounced, with a distinct sweetness. The expected Belgian test flavors and spice notes are not initially distinguishable, but in the middle they come out. The suggested serve temp is 40F, but it got better as is warmed. Overall, the flavor profile is not super complex, but not outside the range of other tripels.

M: Rich mouthfeel start to finish. Starts bubbly but settles very quickly, with a nice smooth finish. Alcohol is initially strong, but goes away as the beer warms.

O: This is a good beer, ranks in the upper middle of the pack as far as American tripels go. It definitely goes in the like column, and will come home again.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance- Hazy golden, fluffy white head

Aroma- Big spicy phenols, banana, clove, fruity esters, bready malt backbone, spices come through a bit but aren't strong slight alcohol

Flavor- Sweet pear apple notes, bready malts, funk, clove, spices show up more here, finishes dry and crisp, do not really taste the abv, although slight alcohol warmth

Mouthfeel- Medium, strong carbonation

Overall- Awesome triple, I don't know about perfection, but very nice and worth a try.
