Golden brew with a slight haze and a pretty nice white head on top. Good retention. Great yeast spiciness in the aroma paired with fruitiness and backed up with a nice malty backbone. On the palate, it's no less a delight. "Tripel honey" malt, and lots of it. But that's not all, far from it. It's rather well hopped as well, playing against the malt very well. The spiciness is big as well. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth, but with a good amount of carbonation. The finish is even more smooth and creamy. Huge warming effect. This is an excellent tripel, among my favorites in the style. I'm very glad this beer was made available to us here in Arizona. I had never seen any Allagash stuff here before I got this. I can't wait to try their other stuff! Highly recommended.

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.

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.
