On-tap at Meadhall in Cambridge, 8.5oz serving in a champagne glass
A- Hazy color of dark yellowish orange. About a finger of white creamy head. Average carbonation. Leaves walls of layered lacing surrounding the glass.
S- Sweet sugary citrus (oranges, lemons, etc.) with some hints of yeast, oak, and a little bit of booze.
T- Sweet citrus, lemon, orange, maybe a hint of cherries and peaches, with vanilla, oak, and finishes with a citrusy sour, bitter taste.
M- Medium bodied, goes down very smoothly, easily drinkable, very very slight burn from the booze but not bad at all considering the 11% abv.
O- This was a great tripel from Allagash. Definitely recommended if you like Belgian beers. Has a nice complex, unique sugary sweet sour taste that is very easy to drink. Could have easily had more then an 8.5oz serving.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some some lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, banana, coconut, vanilla, spices and woody oak.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some Belgian yeast, coconut, banana, faint spices, some vanilla, woody oak and faint bourbon.
Mouthfeel: It has a med-high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
