Tripel Perfection

The usual, 750 mL presentation with cork & cage from Ommegang. Purchased from Green’s on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Decent pop on opening with some gunsmoke.
Body is quite a dark orange considering the style. Head is decent, but fades to a collar and some spotty surface note with no lace on standing.
A high level of Belgian yest in the nose.
More yeast are the initial tastes. Plenty of alcohol and it warms slightly. Also the requisite white pepper but the alcohol comes back (along with the yeast) time and time again. Quite aggressive and upfront in terms of alcohol.
I guess there is a little honey as well, along with a dry, slightly bitter, short ending. Very light spice.
Tasty and just about what I expected from Ommegang. They seldom make mistakes and generally produce a high quality beer that fits style parameters well. This is no exception.
