I love this style. Malt-forward, sweet, fruity and deceptively alcoholic, Tripels are much more fun than other Strong Ales. A golden translucent body and a minimal white head, this beer looks like hard cider, but the nose is herbaceous, spice-y, and clean, like a fresh salad. The first sip is a surprise: PASSION FRUIT. Tropical fruit sweetness up front, along with a big malt profile (barley blend), honey, and black pepper. Complex! As the beer warms, I get more banana bread and sugar cane. Mouthfeel is strange–really smooth and creamy with a crisp, bitter finish. So much happening at once...imagine like a farmhouse + pilsner combo(??) Dangerously smooth for a 9%. Overall, I love the experience of this beer, as well as it's bourbon barrel-aged cousin, Allagash's Curieux. WILL BUY AGAIN!

Fresh bottle from a Whole Foods 4 pack in a glass. This has a small head, but but then, it should. Not much lacing, but then it shouldn't. The taste is bright and happy. I will buy more, and will drink it, yes.

It is definitely a Belgian style, but not my favorite. Too light. Kind of a blond. Clear. Decent head when poured into 12oz tulip glass. A taste of flowers that really just kind of goes no where
