This review was from a 750ml-corked bottle. Appearance is a fairly clear yellow with and in inch of white foamy head sitting a top. The body is very bubbly and the head leaves some rings of lace as this is consumed. Aroma is spicy with a strong doughy malt presence. Also present are fruity notes and a touch of sweetness. The flavor starts off with a strong spicy character before a bit of sweet fruitiness balances it out. Plenty of doughy malt was there holding up the back as this finished with a short lingering dry spiciness. Mouthfeel is about medium with ample carbonation. Very good drinkability for the style with a great complex flavor and well-hidden alcohol this could definitely sneak up on you. Another great offering from Allagash.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - cloudy golden body with a towering head when first poured that shrinks but sticks around

N - all I get from this is a breast yeast aroma. Not bad but I was expecting more fruit

M - creamy carbonated feel

T - again, bready yeast but I can also pick up some banana flavor. I also get some tart sour favors on the finish

O - this was my first tripel. I liked it. Maybe I was expecting too much but I wanted more fruit tones. I'll have to try some European variations for comparison but overall a nice brew that I wouldn't mind having again.
