Had this one at the Copper Mine Pub today!

Appearance: Classic Tripel cloudy golden blond with a 1.5 finger white crown that shows some retention and moderate lace.

Smell: Sorachi Ace lemon notes baby! Also some herbal and grassy notes, mild hints of grapefruit, and bubblegum like belgian esters.

Taste: Mainly sorachi and bubblegum.

Mouthfeel: Light side of medium bodied with medium carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: One of the most enjoyable Allagash beers I've had in quite some time. Please make more or I'll be forced to homebrew it!!!! (Who am I kidding, I'll be homebrewing it either way!)

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.
