Ommegang
Tripel

Second bottle of this. L1 061022, 06/04/24

Not to be confused with the US brewery of the same name.

Classic, golden Tripel pour with a lovely pillow-like head that hangs around nicely.

All of the requisite attributes for the style are here, both present and correct. Sweet, white pepper notes up front with plenty of estery pineapple and such that fades to a nicely drying, lightly bitter alcohol finish. Clean as a whistle the style is nailed and beautifully presented. Those gentle spicy elements come together perfectly in the back-end, and round out the beer with a tremendous presence. It feels like a beer of some gravitas.

Not the sweetest Tripel I’ve ever come across, nor the one with te biggest alcohol feel (often trademarks), but the drying back end and light spice makes this a lovely, well-crafted, slightly different player in the field. If you want a ball-busting sweet Tripel this isn’t it, but it is a tasty beer that hits all of the correct points stylistically.
