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.

Serving type: on-tap

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 Monk's Cafe celebrating Belgian Independence Day 2012, served in a Belgian Independence Day 2012 tulip glass.

BID2012 Triple pours out a very bright gold color with some faint hints of yellow, straw colored, A respectable Belgian sized three fingaz of semi dense foam that male significant cling. Smell is rather bold and spicy. A lot of fresh hop presence with grass and citrus, orange with an array of spices. Belgian yeast is bready as well with some pear and apple. Taste is exquisite, it does not beat out Mad Bitch by any means, but a rather tasty triple. On the spicier side from the array of yeast used. A earthy hop hit in the center with light florals. When it warms some candi suga comes out leveling the playing field. The body is a step below medium with crisp carb, a earthy biscuity aftertaste in the end. This is like a super triple with Ommegang, Duvel and Chouffe yeast used in the brewing process.
