Pours a deep golden yellow with a nice dirty white head. Aroma and flavor is all about the yeasts; delicately spicey, bready, subtle on the fruitiness, and a little peppery. It was great. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, creamy, active with slight prickliness. Overall, a fantastic brew and one of the best beers I have had yet 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.

Served on tap at Summit's Wayside Snellville August 14, 2012. Reviewed from notes.

Ommegang Belgian Independence Day 2012.

(Appearance) Hazy golden copper body, Creamy white head of a thick creamy foam consistency, retains well. Very nice appearance overall. 4.5

(Smell) Cracker malts, medium spice presence, subtle bitter orange peel with a waft of banana fruity esters from the belgian yeast. Potency is medium. Good. 4

(Taste) Robust malty body much deeper than the nose, syrupy. Mild spices in the middle and rounding out the finish, with a bit of grainy alcohol on the end. A nice flavorful malty body on this beer. 4

(Mouthfeel) Very light airy body and a sticky, slick heavy finish. Alcohol presence is low. Body is medium. Nice level of carbonation. 4

(Overall) A delicious flavorful Tripel by Ommegang, certainly one of the most enjoyable ones that I've had to date. 4
