I had this on tap at the Holy Hound taproom in York, served chilled in a snifter.

The clois deep golden with amber highlights and thick cream cap ith tiny bead. The aroma is fruity with slight sweet ester and floral tinge with mild alcohol element and subtle spice. The feel is good starts out lively and has gentle spice with moderately high carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The taste is very good, nice amount of malt flavor which has a gentle sweetness and slight biscuit element in the malt with light yeast tanginess which is good with some mild spice/phenolic tinges and light hop bitterness with subtle spiced accent with mild alcohol in the flavor which is not that apparent until the finish. Overall I enjoyed this Tripel, well brewed and very tasty A nice holiday beer from Ommegang!

Growler filled at Green Growler Grocery in Croton-on-Hudson, NY

Pours clouded, dull apricot. Under a looser off white head, that leaves a nice thicker collar, and ample fine bits and small blobs of lacing.

Fresh and ripe tropical fruit nose.

More fruity goodness, I get some melon, lime, and grapefruit. Then biting hops, a load of pepper, and more lime and grapefruit as we head to the tasty finish.

Highly enjoyable offering from Ommegang.

On tap at the Whip In.

The beer ours a gold color with a white head. The aroma has a good dose of orange and lemon notes in it, as well as a little bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of orange juice notes, as well as some Belgian yeast and some sweetness from the biscuit malt. There is also a good bit of alcohol in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a three finger white head that subsided to a half finger slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, spices, fruit, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, fruit, spices, earth, and fruit hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I went into this one not really expecting much, but I did find it a pretty good representative of the style. Unfortunately it did not stand out from the style very much at all. The aroma was pretty nice as it was very well balanced and kept you guessing what was going on. The flavor on the otherhand was rather average and not really much stood out on it compared to other brews of the style I have had in the past. Glad I got to try this one as it got me a ticket which immediately won me a raffle for a glass and t-shirt, but other than that, I doubt I would order it again given other options.

I had this at Max's during the Belgian Independence Day event. Poured into a goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a hint of gold. There is a finger of fluffy white head that leaves some very nice lace.

Smell: I'm getting Belgian yeast spice with some candy sugar sweetness, but not too much. The beer also seems to have a herbal quality to it.

Taste: Lots of spice from the Belgian yeast with a perfect amount of malt sweetness. This beer is very easy to drink. The finish is bitter and contains the herbal qualities that I picked up in the nose.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with large bubbles and a touch of dryness in the finish.

Overall: I thought this was a fantastic beer. I went back for another, and that doesn't usually happen at Max's. Great balance of malt and spice.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Golden yellow pour, slightly cloudy, with a foamy white head that receded to a thin layer and left a bit of soapy lacing on the glass. Spicy yeast on the nose, herbal hops, and touches of fruit. More of the same in the taste, yeasty, mildly musty, spice, pale malt sweetness, apple skins and hints of white wine, herbal hops. Light-medium body, well-hidden alcohol, and a pretty decent brew overall.
