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.
