Big bottle750ml that I bought in Calif at one of those "warehouse stores" (not sure we can give actual names here, but it starts with a "C"). I developed a love for Belgian style beers a couple of years back and this has to be the best one i've tried yet. Pours a beautiful gold, slightly hazy, (no chunks). If it was more clear, i'd be worried they had filtered out some of the "good stuff". Wonderful white foamy head that retained for some time. Therre was still traces of head with only an inch left in the glass. Aroma is excellant, slightly floral, not too strong, quite pleasing. Initial taste is very very smooth that lingers in the best way. Mouthfeel is excellant, no aftertaste or excessive "bite" that Beligians can get. Incredible balance of sweatness, hops and grain, with Belgian candy. No ingrediant is too much or missing Its wonderful. The alcohol balance is amazing. I could hardly tell it is there and would have never guessed it was 9%. Balance, balance, balance. No faults, nothing lacking, I could drink only this beer for the rest of my life and be quite happy. Good job guys, very well crafted.

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.
