Enjoyed on tap at the Somerset Hills Tap Room in New Jersey this hard to
find brew shows a very cloudy golden amber color with a solid white cover and
great lacing. The nose hit presents subtle floral ideas and light clove wheat.
Delicate but very pleasant. The first mouthful brings out a grainy blend with more floral-clove
flavors. Sweet honey malt and grassy wheat. The body is medium but with a
somewhat light feel with plentiful but gentle carbonation. Overall a pleasure.

A-Pours a cloudy hay color. Very translucent. Head is a fluffy bun that sits atop the body. Head manages to persevere throughout the entire glass. A textbook Tripel in terms of appearance.

S-Yeasty with big notes of apples and of course pears. The dry hopping really brings out a powerful hoppiness. Super grassy hops. Also a great floral hop character. Medium to high intensity in the nose. Overall quite an attractive aroma.

T-Very bright and lively. Hoppiness is pretty strong. Really grassy and floral. The dry-hopping of American hops brings in great notes of citrus and pine as well. Underneath the hoppiness is a classic Tripel that at its bare bones is quite nice as well. I really enjoyed the flavor.

M-Enough carbonation to mellow out the higher ABV. Full bodied and a bit creamy. This went down incredibly easy.

O/D-One of the better versions of a style that I am not in love with. In fact, this may be up there with my favorite Tripels because I love the infusion of the Cascade and Sorachi Ace. Very solid brew.

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!)

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.

@ Milltown

Foggy golden yellow covered with a thick, white slab of a head. Not quite as murky as when my wife had a glass earlier in the night. Nice rings of lacing plastering the glass. Aromas of hoppy lemony citrus and flowers over some pale malt. Distinct Sorachi Ace hop flavor: sweet lemon and floral notes and a more pronounced spicy yeast element. Moderate malty sweetness, retaining some of the original Tripel character, but primarily zesty and hoppy with a dry, refreshing finish. Enjoyable...Sorachi Ace is a hop that can wear me out as it can easily dominate the beer with its unique profile, but Allagash handled it pretty well, allowing the base beer to come through a bit. Happy to have gotten an opportunity to try it.

Had at Jamison Pourhouse. Has a cloudy golden color with a white farily tall head with excellent carbs.
I could definitly smell hops in the nose along with pils malts spice and candied sugar.
Taste is tart and refreshing with hints of pine and floral. Lemony tartness with some pepper spice.
Drinks bright and spritzy.
Very good offering with a decent hop backbone over a rich malty base.
