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.

A - Poured with a small head of white foam on top of a hazy, golden body. The head settles slowly and leaves good lace.

S - Spicy hops, spicy yeast, and a thick, pilsner malt profile.

T - Thick, spicy yeast and wheat malt up front. Notes of pepper and cloe in the middle and a very spicy finish that is dominated by clove.

M - Medium thick body, moderately high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad, I enjoy the aroma quite a bit, but the flavor profile doesn't quite lie up to it. It is too spicy and medicinal for my taste and while the malt is pleasant it could use. A little fruit character for balance.

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.

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!

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.
