Reviews by the Alström Bros:
4.13/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 750ml brown bottle ... corked and caged. Batch #8. No freshness date on the bottle.
Appearance: Tarnish gold in colour with a rich and dense white lace, almost looks like frothed milk on top.
Smell: Exotic fruit, herbal and medicinal all make for a sweet aroma.
Taste: Light to medium in body with a sweet candy sugar malt flavour. This is soon cut by herbal, grain and phenolic flavour. Hop bitterness is complacent and is only in the background. Lots of spicy alcohol with hints of celery leaves and pine. Earthy yeast with its raw exotic fruity character laces the palate with more complexity. The fruity flavour lingers with a touch of grain and a heavy hand of warming alcohol ties up the finish.
Notes: Another stellar brew from Allagash. Top shelf here, perfect example of the style. Rich in intricacies and incredibly drinkable. One of the greatest American Beers brewed in the Belgian style.

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.
