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: 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.

3.95/5 rDev -4.8%
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.
