Served from bomber into tulip glass. Pours a 2" white head that falls slowly with mild lacing. Aroma is brett forward with white bread background and floral hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth finish. Flavors of banana, clove, white bread, floral hops. Overall: really enjoyed this one.

Bottled 08/30/18. Yet another beer enjoyed during my streak of "beers I should have tried and reviewed years ago." There was a time when I wasn't a fan of this style nor Belgian beers in general. Now I'd like to go back in time to slap my old self as my life now feels diminished because I've gone so long without this beer in my life. Without a doubt one of the world's best Tripels, found in Maine nonetheless, and relatively inexpensive. It's so well-rounded, so flavorful, so delicately sweet yet perfectly balanced and never cloying. Almost a dessert beer. I am now obsessed with Tripel Ale from Allagash. Wow.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

L - Pours a hazy yellow color with cloudy head of white foam.

S- Straight up Belgian. Banana, Clove, Hay all represented.

T - Slightly spicy and citric with subtle metallic notes and moderately bitter hop finish.

F - Went done easy. light and refreshing for a beer with this big of an ABV.

A quality ale and a nice representation of this style.

This is as good if not better than many of the Top Belgium made Tripels (and as a bonus, cheaper than most of those from Belgium).

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look: Hazy golden yellow. A finger of white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Banana, clove, citrus, vanilla, malt.

Taste: Malt, generic sweet spice, and a little bitterness on the back end. Not quite as complex as the smell.

Mouthfeel: A little thicker than average, very high carbonation.

Overall: A decent tripel, albeit unspectacular.
