Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

4.13/5  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.

Serving type: bottle

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.
