This will be an odd review. On-tap at Isaac Newton's and I must say an unimpressive looking beer sits in a tulip in front of me.Completely flat with no heading whatsoever not even after a few swirls to try an agitate it.
The aroma was not bad at all. Very medicinal,earthy,sweet and sugary.Slight bit of banana also.
With really no carbonation whatsoever to sting my tongue. I am getting nothing but lingering flavors of lighter tart notes,lemon zest,and coriander. Which all linger for just a little while.
This taste reminds me of the White only jacked up on steroids.Very nice.
I do not think Allagash would send out unprimed kegs so I do think it is Isaac's fault for this pour tapping. My wife also had an IPA which was the same way completely flat.I would love to try this one again in a bottle or a properly tapped keg.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Solid amber color with a decent head when poured from a bottle.
S: hints of fruit with spices.
T: Delicious. Solid beer all around. Have already had the White, Double, and Double Reserve. This is quite good with a light texture and great taste.
M: sufficiently carbonated and light on the tongue, hints of spices and fruits. Delicious. Have already compared with the White, Dubel, Dubel Reserve, and Tripel today.
O: Solid beer. Would be happy to drink in just about any situation. Pretty fantastic.

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.
