Ommegang Tripel Perfection – Part of the Duvel Family

29 Sep

If you know myself or my fiance at all, we love craft beer. So naturally, when it comes to gifts from each other or other people, they are normally beer-related (or wine when it comes to me.)

One of these recent gifts included Ommegang Tripel Perfection, a golden tripel ale brewed with spices.

The bottle says you’ll smell hints of banana, however I thought Tripel Perfection had hints of apricots or oranges. There was also a very light spicy aroma when you stuck your nose in and took a deep breathe.

Color-wise, Ommegang Tripel Perfection has a light copper tone to it.

On a heaviness scale of 1-10, it was about a 5 or 6. This brew had a crisp, yet  slightly fruity taste, that again tasted like apricots or oranges. Also accompanied the taste was a nice creaminess and good aftertaste that hung around for a while.

Ommegang Tripel Perfection is 8.9% ABV and is part of the Duvel family.

Definitely a nice Belgian-style ale.

Are you into Belgians?
