Served in a balloon glass. Yakuza pours a perfectly clear yellow gold color with an excellent white, fluffy head that sticks all down the sides of the glass. The head dissipates, but slowly, taking its time and leaving its mark. This one is clearly dry-hopped!

It has a sweet, delicate lemon aroma, with subtle hints of cake batter. It's not quite as strong as I would like, and the Tripel aroma is just not present. It is not very Belgian-like in that regard. No matter though, because this beer smells great!!

Shit, it tastes awesome. Like really awesome and I am thinking how to get this on tap at my house. It is very similar to Brooklyn Sorachi Ace in my opinion, which is a great compliment, because I LOVED that beer. The Sorachi Ace hops do it for me I guess...coconut, vanilla, and banana all com to mind in this flavor.

Simply perfect carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a medium body. Smooth finish.

Wow, great beer. Love the hop profile, love the body, definitely drinkable as hell and would drink again! Seek out this beer! I was taken by surprise again, and this makes me think I need more Allagash in my life!

Growler filled at DeCicco's Brewster, NY during their Allagash event .

Pours near clear, dull yellowy amber, under a lasting fluffy off white head. Leaves more then ample spots and strands of lacing and a tiny bubble film.

Pepper, yeast and ripe fruits on the nose.

Tasty tripel thats on the hoppy side. Nice amounts of more ripe fruits, moderate pepper, lime and Belgian yeast notes all the way through. Dry finish. Real nice Americanized version of the style.

Happy to get to try this on draft.

A: pours a clear golden yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: Belgian spices and candy sugar up front followed by spicy, lemony, and herbal hop aromas.

T: spices here as well followed by sweet breads. The hops kick in with grassy, herbal, peppery flavors. The finish is slightly bitter.

M: medium-light body with lowish carbonation, this beer doesn't have too thick of a body but is a bit watery.

O: a pretty decent hoppy tripel overall. It's main flaw is being under-attenuated, but otherwise is good.
