12 ounce bottle served very cold in glass beer challis
A) This beautiful beer glows bright gold/brass when held to the light. Soft off white head lasts and lasts. Clouds of soft, fine suspended carbonation
S) Sweet and light, fresh baked sour dough, citrus. Classic Belgian Triple. Can't wait to try it.
T) Sweet, classic Belgian malt. Stewed dates and figs, sweet juices -- apricot, apple and pear. This beer delivers in a very competitive category.
M) Smooth and sticky sweet. Just the right amount of fine, bottle conditioned effervescent carbonation. Powerfull dose is barely noticable.
O) This is truly a winner; a must try if you like this category. I love Belgian Triples and typically favor the real deal. But this made in America "Belgian" makes me darn proud... and thirsty too

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.
