For all the hype, allagash greatly dissappoints.

All of my favorites are either tripels or dark belgian ales.

Allagash's stlyle seems much weaker then most. Less flavor, slightly more bitterness. This style might appeals to those fond of high-hop beers (in fact I would recommend it in this case), but for those of us who are traditional tripel fanatics, I would warn you to stay away.

There are far better brews (la trappe, rocheforte) for you to choose from. How allagash ever came to be relished, I will never understand. Frankly the brand seems bland and uninspired.
