Very well done Belgian style ale from an American brewery.

Crisp medium bodied Belgium. Give it a try.

One of Allagash's easier ones to find.
This time and actually every time I've ever had this, it was always in a tulip or a chalice.
The appearance was a sturdy glossy burnt orange almost copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that glistened and slide off at an adequate pace. Sly lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of the base Belgian malts smoothly penetrating some light tones of honey, coriander, "iced apples" - somewhat green apples, Belgian yeasty character, light clove and a light blend of all in the aftertaste.
The flavor was moderately sweet touching down on a tart edge and then subjugating all of those qualities into the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was crisp and tight riding along a medium body and having a respectable carbonation that played with the ABV adequately.
Overall, always a respectable Belgian Tripel, well worthy of coming back to.

Had 750ml bottle dated Nov. 2016. Very nice. Could drink all day. Some slight soapy flavor, but slightly better bubblegum flavor than most.

Appearance is a hazy yellowish orange with a thick white head that looks delicious, and it is delicious. I would say the description on the bottle is fairly accurate (recorded in "notes" above), except for the part about the "long" finish. Finish is good, but not better than other high-end beers. Not a lot of bitterness.
