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.

(Previous review, transferred from beer journal)

Allagash Tripel Reserve: 9% ABV, lots of carbonation, good amount of haze, 4-finger head, steadily dissolves until 2 fingers, then slows to a crawl, Appearance: hazy yellow, very active; Smell: touch of banana; Taste/Mouthfeel: slightly thick, some banana and banana peel, softer toffee with a burnt finish (not bad), touch of golden raisin; pretty good; head has darker burnt toffee taste.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with 2 fingers of fluffy head that slowly recedes down to a nice bubbly cap

S: Belgian yeast imparts some light spiciness and fruitiness. Bready malts behind the yeast, along with a hint of phenols from the alcohol and a nice earthy/herbal tone

T: Nicely complex. Starts off with a bit of spicy yeast and fruitiness followed by phenols and a light malt/cereal sweetness. It slowly winds its way through a spectrum of different fruits before finishing with some nice herbal notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very nicely done American-brewed tripel that covers the style well. Very comparable to a lot of Belgian-brewed tripels, which is tough to do. For the most part, it is well priced in comparison to imports and stands up well. Recommended if you're into the style or Belgians in general
