Poured from the tap into a tulip glass. The appearance is a clear dark yellow gold with a large white head. The aroma is cinnamon. The taste is smooth with a nice spice flavor.

Tripel is very smooth and complex brew with lots of floral, fruit and herb notes. I think it's depth is what really draws me to it. It has a wonderful nose that tastes as good as it smells.

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!
