Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
In honor of both its independence and its signature Tripel style, this Belgian-style ale is brewed with Belgian candi sugar and a combination of Ommegang, Duvel and Chouffe yeasts. A triple, Tripel if you will. The unsung hero of brewing, the yeast strain dramatically influences the flavor and aroma profile of a beer. Three yeasts join here together to forge one remarkable brew.

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.
