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.

Shared at a BYOB in Phoenixville, PA on 3/13/13 (thanks Howard).
It is an overall enjoyable Belgian Tripel. It has citrus notes and is bubbly. Color is golden, a bit of a white head, some lacing. Not a fan of the style--they all basically taste the same (or I haven't had a real bad one yet to tell).
Highly rated, so I will take their que. For a nice Spring or Summer day it is enjoyable or with the right food pairing.

Another great beer from Allagash. This beer has a crisp belgium citrus sweet ale kind of finish.

It pours a clear golden yellow with a moderate head, that leaves a light, but distinct lacing on the oversized snifter glasses, I use for this beer.

I can not place the claim of bananas, but, the other fruits are there, bowing at the feet of the alcohol in this brew. It is a stronger beer, but, the alcohol is not at all over powering.

Like my experience with other Allagash beers, this is a pleasant, tasty, flavorful brew that is well worth the slightly higher cost. It is a very nice treat for yourself and for your guests. You will not disappoint, nor be disappointed, while enjoying this beer.

12oz bottle poured into tulip glass

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with pure white bubbly head. Saturn like rings cling to glass.

Smells of wet hay malts with a funky floral richness and some sweet bubble gum Belgian yeast. Slight spiciness in the background.

Tastes of funk and wet straw with a touch of green flowers. Light bitter crosses the pallet briefly on the way to a rich creamy yet drying bread crust finish. Hints of banana and unripe fruit with light coriander and a slight peppery spice that linger a bit.

Feel a tad frothy with medium to full body. A touch of alcohol comes through a bit at the end that slightly flattens the nice frothy feel but does not overwhelm. It's nice to have a stash of these so you can clean your pallet with one after a long night of IPA tasting.
