Live reviewed from Collins Pub in Seattle.
Served up from the tap in a tall'n'skinny goblet with about 1/2" of very white head. Body is murky dark-gold, and just a touch grey. As I drank, the lace positively coated the glass in sheets of white.
Smells spicy and like white bread. Strong booze, even for it's weight. Fruity and floral hopping, unexpectedly so for a Belgian. Sweet malts, honestly a bit like malted milk.
Taste is neither sweet nor dry, but quite light in the sugars. Spice jumps out like cardamom and bay. Yeast is saison-like.
Feels gbood on the tongue, effervescent like soda. Only coats the palate when a little warmer. Drinkable as they come if you can stand a hair of bitterness.
In the end, a quite understated and champagne-like tripp. Subtle and easy to drink, and an interesting challenge to describe. Without a doubt one of Allagash's better mid-tier brews with none of the faults of the dubb or cru.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
