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.

Allagash Tripel Ale – 9% ABV – Consumed October 18, 2012
Appearance: pours an unfiltered, hazy golden hue with one finger of white head and big globs of webbed lacing on the tulip glass. Very attractive brew.
Smell: unripe banana, anjou pear, pineapple, doughy-yeasty notes, big tropical fruit aromas, candied nectarine, alcohol esters, and grainy malt. Hugely aromatic and complex nose.
Taste: pear, pineapple, candied pit fruit, yeast, spice box, light bitterness, exotic fruit and alcohol esters on the cough. Delicious.
Mouthfeel: fuller than medium-bodied, lush, tangy and spicy middle, prickly hop bitterness transitions to a drying finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Stellar feel.
Overall: an exemplary tripel, balanced and highly drinkable.
