This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. The Tripel has a remarkably long and smooth finish.

750ml bottle.

A - Great looking triple. Fluffy white head with great retention and lace. Was able to avoid the sediment in the bottle for a crystal clear wheat gold body.

S - Apple, pear, touch of green banana, white grape, riesling wine, honeydew mellon, touch of booze.

T - Huge bosh pear flavor, white grape, apple skins, honey, light dandelion.

M - Great mouthfeel; full with a creamy backend.

O - A great, relatively easy to access triple. Sweet and loaded with fruit.

A: single finger head on a murky pale golden with slight copper hue body. nice lacing.

T: lemon custard provides both tart and sweetness. Belgian yeast, banana with herbs including corriander and clove with this one being a touch bitter.

M: light to medium body and high carbonation. very crisp.

Overall: This one is well made and nicely represents the style especially in the aroma and flavor.

Poured into my favorite chalice tonight. Nice thick foamy white head sat on-top my hazy pale golden Tripel.

I knew this was going to be something when I uncorked it. The aromas exploded out of the bottle with the rush of air I released. There were many aromas flowing out of my glass. Sweet malt with a touch of orange zest. Spicy with a hint of yeast and bannana essence.

The flavors were biscuity and sweet light malt possibly a hint of banana turning into a powerful mid-taste of spicy and light hoppy bitterness. The aftertaste was solid and lingered pleasantly with sweet and spice flavors competing.

The mouthfeel was right-on, light to slightly medium with a distinct crispness.

Overall this beer was a pleasure to sip this evening.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours pale golden yellow. Light foam. Cloudy due to the yeast. Smells of pears, apples, passion fruit. Very fruity taste. Citrus pumps through. Tasty bitter wrapped around the edges. Wheaty, flavorful. Complex, yet simple. Excellent.

Updated - poours orange hued with thick white foam. Sticky patchy. Floral notes, spices. Taste is a rum link malt some sweetness. Quite fruity with a finishing sugary hop. Bubblegum flavor. Full chewy mouthfeel. Delicious.

Poured from a 750 into a tulip glass. Batch #176

Appearance: Pours a nice gold. Slightly cloudy with a constant stream of tiny bubbles rising through the glass. The head is thick and fluffy and lasts a long time.

Smell: Fruity and spicy with a malt background.

Taste: Follows the smell. Sweet and spicy followed by bitterness to balance it. Dry and not cloying.

Mouthfeel: light bodied and very refreshing. Plenty of carbonation and no sting.

Overall: Allagash hit a home run with this beer. I will be looking for this one again.
