look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass
Appearance: Hazy gold color, almost that of the orange color in a peach. Large fluffy head that shrinks to a small head. Good retention. Lacing is minimal.
Smell: Fresh bananas with spicy yeast complexity. Herbal and sweet at the same time. Pleasant.
Taste: Sweet fruits upon the arrival (banana, mango, and passion fruit mostly). Spicy yeast finish. Slight honey notes. On the sweet side. The hops take a back seat with this beer. Quite enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Ending notes: This is an excellent beer. Highly drinkable. Very refreshing.I would highly recommend it to someone who is looking for a tripel that is sweet and juicy instead of dry. The alcohol is masked beautifully. Well done, Allagash.

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. 4.5
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. 4.5
Taste: pear, pineapple, candied pit fruit, yeast, spice box, light bitterness, exotic fruit and alcohol esters on the cough. Delicious. 4
Mouthfeel: fuller than medium-bodied, lush, tangy and spicy middle, prickly hop bitterness transitions to a drying finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Stellar feel. 4
Overall: an exemplary tripel, balanced and highly drinkable. 4.25
