A: Solid amber color with a decent head when poured from a bottle.

S: hints of fruit with spices.

T: Delicious. Solid beer all around. Have already had the White, Double, and Double Reserve. This is quite good with a light texture and great taste.

M: sufficiently carbonated and light on the tongue, hints of spices and fruits. Delicious. Have already compared with the White, Dubel, Dubel Reserve, and Tripel today.

O: Solid beer. Would be happy to drink in just about any situation. Pretty fantastic.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the carefully handled bomber procured from Allagash directly and then cold/cooler-kept until consumption today.

A: slightly hazy gold with 1 finger head that dissipates to a 4 mm disk, no lacing on this glass.

S: strong belgian breadiness followed by a classic belgian tripel yeast profile. Very on-point sewery, sweet yeast and hop notes. Balanced for the style. Sewery hops do present at very end of nose.

T: Of course the nose and finish are Belgian Triple ale...and the taste follows the yeasty, bready nose. No overtly obnoxious flavors present now.

M: no creamy or filling mouthfeel, and middle road to boot.

O: worth a quaff if you can find it.
