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.

Yellow gold color,slightly cloudy. Yeast,fruit,spice, yeast aroma that was pleasurable,well balanced, and a bit dry.taste was exactly like aroma with a bit of a dry finish. If you are a fan of tripel style then this is a must try. Really well made,balanced and an interesting example of a tripel

This beer appears a tiny bit paler than your average Belgian Tripel, with a bit of quickly-dissipating foam to join the party. Lovely aromas of fruit and different syrups. Sour-sweet flavor of malts, fruit, yeasty goodness, and a pinch of spices. There is a gentle microfoam that consistently massages your palate. Light body, bready aftertaste, and deceptively easy to drink - just like a true Tripel. Another great beer from Allagash, and one of my favorite American-made Tripels.
