Notes/Commercial Description:
This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. The Tripel has a remarkably long and smooth finish.

4/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A - Poured into an tall Allagash glass. The beer produced a towering, creamy head with a steady stream of bubbles racing up the center of the glass. The beer itself is a clear golden color. The stream of bubbles maintains a thin head for the duration and leaves thin lacing along the sides of the glass.

S - Nice level of potency. Some sweetness, maybe a little lemongrass, and a few yeasty notes.

T - Also very nice. Bubblegum sweetness up front, followed by a tiny bit of lemon and some mild peppery spice. There is just a touch of alcohol present on the finish, which is also a nice touch.

M - I can barely go above average here. The only thing that distinguishes this from water for me is a tiny bit of a tingle on my tongue. Oddly enough, with all the visible carbonation in this beer, I can barely detect any once I start drinking it. Also a bit of a lingering off-flavor that I only detect on the finish. Not really part of the flavor profile.

O - I want to like this, but as I get closer to the bottom of the glass I find that its really not for me. The mouthfeel in particular was a major letdown, particularly considering how absolutely gorgeous this beer is.

3.95/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the carefully handled bomber procured from Allagash directly and then cold/cooler-kept until consumption today.

A: slightly hazy gold with 1 finger head that dissipates to a 4 mm disk, no lacing on this glass.

S: strong belgian breadiness followed by a classic belgian tripel yeast profile. Very on-point sewery, sweet yeast and hop notes. Balanced for the style. Sewery hops do present at very end of nose.

T: Of course the nose and finish are Belgian Triple ale...and the taste follows the yeasty, bready nose. No overtly obnoxious flavors present now.

M: no creamy or filling mouthfeel, and middle road to boot.

O: worth a quaff if you can find it.
