4.19/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy, pale straw color from my growler. A huge fluffy white head sits on top, but then drops pretty quickly, leaving great spiderweb lacing.

Smell: The nose is definitely interesting. It’s far more hop-forward than I would typically expect from a tripel, with a ton of lemons and oranges coming through. Traditional Belgian yeast notes are also present, but are mostly playing second fiddle to the hops.

Taste: The nose profile continues in the mouth. It’s sort of an inversion of a traditional tripel, with the hops (particularly the sorachi ace) taking the lead with citrus and a bracing bitterness, and the Belgian yeast flavors of pepper and cloves largely fill in around the edges. I must say that I am pleased with the increasing use of sorachi ace by creative brewers these days; it’s a nice way to add a summer element to different styles, and I look forward to people continuing to push the envelope in incorporating this hop into different styles.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation works well here, balancing out that classic creaminess to keep it relatively light in the mouth.

Drinkability: The balancing of the elements, including the hop bitterness and the citrus elements that allow it to finish clean, make this one pretty damn drinkable.

Serving type: growler

4.03/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: on-tap
