Poured on tap full pour at Smoke & Barrell, into a large snifter.

Gorgeous looking. Lemon orb glowing yellow, hints of brass gold with an opaque solid body together. Head is vanilla creamy white, moderate spider lacing.

Dry nose, quite interesting. Hint of red apple sweetness, mild lemon and citrus warmth. Slight heat but not much or distracting.

Palate brings some warmth. Peanut butter esters, chewy dense malt amd light sugars. Alcohol and floral warmth, slightly green. Sweet breads on the aftertaste with a little bit of milky character. Very dry first sip, and last as well.

Overall it feels like a typical and tastes like a typical Allagash brew, but they did a good job.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
