Wow. This is a great example of a Belgian Tripel brewed in the US. Batch #55 poured a crystal clear, golden color with a large white head that was rather long lasting. There were sheets of lacing from top to bottom on the glass. The aroma is of sweet malt with hints of citrus, vanilla, and spice.

The taste is transporting. Transporting back to the Belgian Tripels that I love. This has a flavor very reminiscent of the Westmalle Tripel with a huge sweet malt, candy, citrus, coriander, vanilla, and finally hoppy love fest. The mouthfeel is full-bodied with a nice carbonation and creamy feel. The 9.0% alcohol level makes this a beer to be cautious with but the taste makes it a beer to celebrate.

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.
