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!

On tap at Novare Res into a 25 cL Allagash glass on 12/15/11.

a: Golden, opaque, small white head with decent retention and reasonable lacing.

s: Mostly hops and a floral charatcter.

t: Besides the hoppy charatcter, which is apparent up front, there is an herbal, almost green tea-like quality, maybe a little citrus.

m: Crisp, rather light-bodied, good amount of carbonation.

o: Fantastic beer, awesome. Hope to find this in bottles (though I believe people were saying that you cannot). Highly recommend.

4.6/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

5 words to describe it: Chamomile, Pepper, Pears, Honey, Crisp

Paired it with: Fried pickles, and also pickled green beans, jalapenos, and spears. To be honest, I gave myself a vinegar burn on the roof of my mouth from eating so many pickles and drinking such a boozy beer. SORRY, me.

Should have paired it with: It went well with fried pickles because it cut the heaviness; would also be good with a spicy curry or a strong cheese plate (as an appetizer as opposed to as a dessert)

Drink it if you like: Belgian Blondes and you want a more exciting life; grassy IPAs and you want something more polite; Sauvignon Blanc

The beer pours in a golden clear yellow.

The aroma has banana, bready Belgian yeast, along with tons of that lemon and clove. You can definitely see where this has picked up the aroma from Sorachi dry hopping.

The flavor has tons of fresh orange, lemon, and citrus peel. Then there’s the banana, bready, and spicy clove that is familiar from the non-dry hopped version of this delicious tripel.

The beer still has that creamy mouthfeel, but pronounced smoother finish.

This a wonderfully clean drinking tripel that is packed with aroma and flavor. The dry hopping picks up the original up and lifts it up wonderfully by adding to that big sticky banana flavor of the original and adds a big lemony nose that follows on the palate.

This is Allagash's standard Tripel which has been dry hopped with Cascade and Sorachi Ace. 

[A] Arrives with a solid 2 finger head, very bright white in color. Decent head retention settles into a thick foam film and collar. Globs of lace grab the glass. The body is a pale straw yellow with decent clarity.

[S] A light scent of dusty lemon and sappy, wet pine on top of a traditional Tripel nose. Light Belgian candi sugars, Pilsner malt and light colored bread. Hay and black peppercorn.

[T] Belgian candi sugars plus sweet bready malt flavors are complimented by dry lemon and earthy pine. The combination is brilliant. Alcohol integrates warmly at the finish.

[M] Amazing. Medium-full body with a gentle carbonation - just effervescent enough to gently graze over the tongue in an even, consistent tongue cleaning fashion. Clean throughout the finish. Dryness sets in just before mid palate.

[O] Allagash's Tripel is a fantastic beer to begin with, so it's no surprise that the dry hopped version is even better.
