General - Had a 22 oz. bottle of this sitting in the fridge and figured that tonight was as good of a night as any to enjoy it. Had it in a partial chalice glass. Bottle is a numbered batch, Batch #195.
Appearance - Great light color with a light white head that is very airy. The head isn't that persistent but is nice while it lasts. There is a freeway of bubbles coming up from the bottom of this glass. SRM 7 or so for the hue.
Aroma - heavy fruitiness with this beer, I can get notes of citrus and banana. Maybe even a touch of apricot. There is a sweetness that is evident in the aroma, almost like a honey but almost clove like.
Taste - All those smells come to life in this. Hits of banana and some light citrus notes are prevalent along with a mild sweetness. There is also a lovely light alcohol burn, expected 9.0% ABV.
Mouthfeel - Effervescent is the best word to describe this, it's just bubbling with every sip. Slight burn, nothing unexpected. A touch on the thick side for a traditional tripel but still very good.
Overall - Really good example of an abbey still triple. I like it a lot, really worth the price.

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.
