With Teenage Fanclub on the Hi-Fi , " Ain't That Enough " combined with another night of the Bruins getting their arse kicked it was time to crack this bottle . A very sharp looking bottle I might add . The label is wonderfully detailed . On the back label was the best on date which was 1-3-08 . First off you better be careful pouring this . The head on this in my old Busch beer chalice is very big . A dull cloudy gold color which looks inviting when held up to the light . The head on the Allagash was not this big . Wow.
Aroma is nice , fruity , wheaty . This was a joy to drink as the carbonation tickled in my mouth . Crisp , energetic . Not like the Bruins who stunk out the place again . I will drink this sweet stuff again .

Trying this for the first time. Tasted 9 April 2014.
Pours a gorgeous hazy golden yellow. One finger of dense creamy white head, looking more like milk than foam. Great retention, awesome lacing, and a dense column of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass.
Smell is bright and alive. Lovely yeasty esters with fruit (banana) and gentle spice, plus some residual sweetness in the back. Yum.
Taste has both the sweet, flavorful side and the clean, crisp side. Outstanding. Warm and fruity, a bit of sugar, a faint hint of spice, and only the tiniest touch of bitterness. Balanced, varied, and delicious. Not even a sniff of alcohol.
Feel is fabulous as well. Smooth and fairly light, with a fuzzy carbonation that spreads throughout. Keeps the flavors buzzing around.
One of the best tripels I've had, for sure. Excellent across the board. Great depth, varied flavors, and a delicate balance. Wow.
