A - dark golden yellow with a huge, white, dense, foamy, head that has great retention

S - white grapes, alcohol, fruit

T - white grapes, warm alcohol, faint grassy hops, some straw-like notes, a bit bitter in the finish

M - big amounts of warming alcohol, well carbonated, medium to full bodied

This is a very nice Tripel with all the traditional markers. The flavors and aromas remind me of the traditional Tripels I have had from Belgium. This is a warm, high ABV, fully flavored, well composed offering from Allagash that is certainly worth your attention.

From a 25 oz bottle with a batch number of 190.
Pours a murky yellow with a big fluffy white head that doesn't fade.
Smells not quite a sweet as most tripels.
Something very tart in the taste, and a good sweet tripel finish.
Thick, creamy feel. A bit different than most tripels I am used to but an overall very good beer.
