4.45/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Cloudy, yellow gold, with 1 finger foamy creamy white head. Magnificent lacing
S: strange that the nose is the less appealing part of this beer. Picked up some hints of vanilla.
T: Wow! This is the BEST part of this beer! Vanilla and coconut hit you up front, then the bourbon aged oak barrels make their presence known. Not a hint of alcohol, which is very nice.
M: Warm, all encompassing, covered mouthfeel. A delight.
O: Haven't been impressed with Allagash beers, but this one is on another level. Not only is it delicious, but it is easy drinking. This is I. The top 10 so far!

4.34/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Clear filtered gold with a softness to it, a fair amount of champagne like carbonation, a finger of stark white head. Nice lacing.
S: Tripel all the way. A sweetness, Belgian yeasts, coriander and offal in a Blue Ribbon way. Light notes of bubble gum and emptied shot gun cartridges just shot. Vanilla? Perhaps but muted in the sort of way you never think of vanilla being in chocolate cake but its there. Coconut (as said on the label) perhaps, as its in a lot of d shelved foods as coconut oil but but goes unnoticed as its mild.
T: Here it comes. Wow. The flavours of a great Tripel – the Belgian yeasts, coriander and fruity flavours are there but mild due to aging, and the lovely bourbon barrels come in strong. Definite woodiness, bourbon, and a softened coconut feel, creamy and smooth and yes vanilla notes. A fair sweetness is there, but not syrupy.
M: Light and smooth, good rich foamy, powdery dry carbonation.
O: Excellent brew. Was questioning it on the nose, but overwhelmed on the flavor. Bought at Greenlife Asheville, drank on the beach at Deerfield Beach, FL, July 17th, 2014.
