Well-hazed golden with a fluffy white head that hangs around for a short while. Fruit cocktail and apple aroma with a ton of alcohol stimulates memories of underage drinking at weddings and proms... and nubile young ladies intoxicated on fruity, boozy drinks. Flavor slaps down the fun several notches with an overpowering essence of Southern Comfort... a whisky/liqueur that brings to mind puking my guts out on the quad followed by gorilla-sized hangovers. I found Allagash Tripel to be purely mediocre, but sticking it in a barrel creates a truly atrocious concoction.

Tipsy had been restraining himself from drinking this since Christmas. Head is gone before you put the bottle down. Bourbon and pepper aroma. Bourbon like flavour with some residual maple or vanilla flavour. Oily body. Liqueur-like but restrained alcohol. Weird and unique. Tastes like the Tripel flavour is reduced to allow the bourbon to come through.

(Bottle) June 2006 Version. Sampled at the Brewery. Iíve had a bottle of the 2005 version of this beer in my cupboard (cellar) for months and finally got to try the new version at Allagash. The smell is sweet and alcoholic, which matches its rich complex potent taste. The color is pale, almost like a chardonay. The bourbon is noticeable with the taste.

(October 2005)vanilla nose with pepper. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow, thin head. Complex flavour with bourbon, hops, sweetness. Dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Interesting.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. The aroma was sweet fruits, with a hint of oak. The flavor was very interesting. The Tripel flavor came through very strongly, but a nice bourbon/oak finish was very apparent. It was a very pleasant combination.

Aroma of yeast, spice, apricot and booze. Hazy yellow, pours the tiniest of heads. Tastes of alcohol and malt, harsh, ordinary. Thanks jerc.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 On draught -- poured a flat ginger ale. Aroma was somewhat appealing, somewhat alcoholic and fruity. The taste and palate was bland and flat. Noted no oak aging. In bottle. All vintages since 2011. I missed this on my earlier rate, OR I got a bad one, who knows. Drink this. Itís got a wonderful bourbon aroma that puts this beer above most íbourbon barrel agedí beers in that in incorporates the aroma into something interesting.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2009 Poured golden yellow with some haze, especially towards the end of the bottle. The head was thin, lacing weak, pretty boring overall appearance. Aroma was of apples and lots of oak. The flavor was oak, and if this is merely the tripel barrel aged, the oak aging did wonders for this beer. A great combination of apples, bananas, some yeast, and lots of oak with a touch of bitterness in the end (yet not hoppy like tripels). Mouthfeel was normal, moderate to heavy overall. Iím not normally sympathetic to Allagash and often find barrel aging to be hit or miss (ie. Iím not into the trendiness of barrell aging any old beer), but this was a fine production and the flavors of the barrel aging combining with the base Belgian ale were a great combo, imo. Good job, Ally (minus appearance)! Re-rate, Dec. 2009: Not much different to really say, other than the fact that this wasnít THAT great. A decent brew with an annoying bourbon influence, as Iím getting less and less thrilled with BBA beers!

This beer looks like a light, sweet beer. But suprirses you with big thick warm flavors and tastes. Vanilla and oak aromas. Warms you as you drink it, very much in the same way bourbon dose. Tastes of alcohol in the finish. Not close to a tripel. In fact reminds me of a less pungent grand cru. Either way, tasty beer.
