Massive thanks to BobZ for sending this one my way!
Gorgeous looking beer - hazy pear body stuffed from side to side with quick, pinpoint beading, capped off by a full two fingers of eggshell white head which leaves behind trails of short-lived lace before settling down to a rocky half finger seal.
Extremely aromatic. Sweet yeast and clove layered with pale fruits and fresh honey. The nose reminds me of Auroch's Horn in a way. No real detectable alcohol presence... a bit of spice on the finish.
The biscuit type malt flavors show themselves on the palate... then there's banana and more clove. Belgian type yeast and cereal flavors. Quite refreshing, especially given the alcohol content. This is one of those beers that I'd like to have in the cellar in case I'm thirsty for something fresh but the fridge is empty. Nice.
Very glad to have had the opportunity to try this one out - it'll remain on the wants list.

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.
