Batch number 194. I let it age a bit. As I released the cork, I heard a stomp.
Golden color, just slightly hazy, with apparent carbonation and a huge thick head with excellent retention. It simply doesn’t go away.
Aroma of bananas, pears, pineapple, peaches, passion fruit juice and champagne. Actually every time I would smell it searching for aromas I would get a new fruit.
Flavor of pears, green apples, herbal hops, a hint of candied sugar, cloves and white peppers, nectarines, white grapes, some banana and passion fruit and oranges. Slightly tart. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, slightly effervescent. Alcohol of 9% abv is in harmony with the overall beer.
This has aged well with good attenuation; it doesn’t feel sweet at all. Faithful to style, maybe a bit bitter, which is welcomed. This is sure an elegant and flawless Tripel that has nothing to lose to its Belgian top counterparties. Recommendable.

Poured into Orval chalice

A: Pours a hazy yellow-golden with plenty of sediment floating in the beer. Thin, quickly dissipating snow-white head.

S: Fruity, sweet aromas with sweetbreads, pie spices and green apples.

T: Pale malt sweetness and earthy hop bitterness are the dominant tones here. Mead, granny smith apples and herbal tones are what I’m getting. Some pine resin flavors in the lasting bitter finish let you know that this is still and American brew.

M: Medium to slightly viscous body with medium to high-ish carbonation.

O: An excellent American representation of a Tripel. There was more bitterness than I expected, but this was not necessarily unwelcome. Allagash really shows that they can take on the Belgians at their own game with their Tripel.

My wife and I both thought there was a "bad beer" smell (Not skunked, but like a lower end beer). We also both experienced an unpleasant, especially bitter aftertaste that lingered after a smooth beginning. It is possible that we got a bad batch, so we will definitely try again. However, if this is the product in all its glory, the Dubbel is much better.
