So, this brew poured with a one finger white head that left signficant lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy yellow color, much to be expected. Due to the color and cloudiness, there was not a lot of visible carbonation. On the nose, I got a lot of fruit, specifically apple and tropical fruit. I wonder if this is the passion fruit that they mention would be apparent on the label. I don’t know exactly what passion fruit smells like, but maybe this is it? On the taste, I definitely get bread. The fruit pretty much gets lost in the taste. Although after it warms a bit, I do get some hints of lemon. I got the booze mostly on the finish of the beer. This was a little less syrupy than I expected, although I really haven’t had a lot of Belgians to be able to expect a lot. Although the booze isn’t exactly hidden, it isn’t obnoxious either. I would have this again, but this a brew that you can’t have too many of.

3.95/5 rDev -4.8%

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.
