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.

4.5/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Batch 117. Golden color that's a little lighter than expected. Big creamy white head that coats the glass with sticky lacing. Head maintains a solid 1/8 inch that is more than the standard cap. Smell of some citrus but mostly the sweet sugary malt smell that you would expect with the style. Some light pepper notes also show. Taste is sweetness that quickly gives way to the spicy yeast and then the 9% gives some burn. Mouth is somehow smooth and syrupy at the same time. Overall a great sipper that warms you. Once of the finest tripel's I've ever had. Thanks to my family for bringing this one back from vacation in Maine.

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.
