COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with subtle suggestions of banana and honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate. The Tripel's finish is remarkably long and soothing.

Batch #41: Hazy golden color with a thick white head that has good retention. Thin and silky lacing. The aroma consists of yeast, fruit and spices. Medium-bodied with sugary sweet qualities. Lightly fruity with some yeast and spice flavors, but none in any abundance. As a matter of fact this was not quite as flavorful as expected. Still it is a good beer with nice balance. The finish is mildly sweet with fruit, yeast and a bit of pepper. So far Allagash has been consistently solid for me.

Batch #41. Very cloudy, yellowish-golden body with a fluffy white head. Aroma is oranges, bananas, sugar, and alcohol. Flavor mirrors the aroma. Very good up to the point of the rather abrasive alcohol burn while this goes down.

Batch #56. Cloudy golden with a very large white head. Aromas of sweet alcohol and banana. Very nice flavor: mainly banana, with some other fruitiness. Finishes with a tinge of alcohol. Nice!

Batch 51 for those who give a damn. Now for the more important aspects: this beer was delicious. After struggling with the cork, the extra effort was well worth it. Poured a pale yellow/gold, somewhat cloudy, with a nice initial head that deflated semi-quickly after pouring. Smelled wonderful - honey, vanilla, banana and pepper. This was one of those beers that you think "hell yeah!" as soon as you taste the beer. Yeasty and wheaty, with a nice trifecter of citrus-sweet-and-smooth. Finish was a tiny bit spicy with some of the alcohol coming through. Aftertaste lingered for a while, but I didnít mind it - it reminded me of a job well done in drinking this fine beer.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Batch 54: Poured hazy yellowish orange with a nice fluffy white head...smell is sweet with lots of tropical scents and then strong spice with anise, pepper, and coriander coming through...the taste was very fizzy with a nice sweet malt flavor up front, giving way to a growing vegetable bitterness in the back...like an orange rind...finish is very dry...a great beer, but if it was a touch sweeter it would be rated much higher...

Batch #32, for those of you keeping score at home. Appearance: slightly hazed, pure golden hue, some bubbling carbonation, with a large and lovely, fluffy cloud of foam on top, obviously home to a myriad of tiny angels awaiting their chance to entrance the senses. And it is good work that they do! Aroma: intoxicating! Senses-filling, flooding, uplifting! Rich, delicious, heady, spicy, sweet, fruity (lemon, orange, pineapple, peach), complex, and invigorating. Bewitching, beguiling, bewildering! And pretty good, too! Taste: huge, yet soft, and sensual attack of hops, that just as soon turns to an orgy on the tongue, nothing but goodness and delight coming from it, a paroxysm of pleasure occurs, sending jolt after jolt of joy down through the nervous system and every sense receptor. These flavors, these temptations, sweet succor to any thirst or any lack of happy feeling, they continue again and again every time lip meets cup, and ale meets tongue, again and again, without pause. Mmmmm, is all my mind can conjure to relate the exact consequences of consumption, and maybe itís that 9% ABV of this 750ml bottle (1/2 to go, and the night is still young, where to go from such bliss?) of perfectly brewed tripel? Everythingís in itís heaven in this brew, the malt, the hops, the booze, sugar, yeast, every little imp that does itís special magic has earned itís fairy dust in the production of this very fine golden ale! Allagash, Iíd tip my hat to you, but I havenít got a hat!

750ML Batch #55. Hazy golden orange colour. White head. Well fitzy on the tounge. Had a nice well balanced fruit/spice taste. Was smooth and didnt rack my brain as much. Some natural sugar taste. Enjoyed it very much.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2004 750ml bottle, batch #51. I have had this in my fridge for a couple of months waiting for the right occasion, and chose it for my birthday brew. Allowed to warm for about 30 min before opening, and served in a nice Christmas tulip glass. Hazy golden in color with a small white head that disappears, leaving the beer still quite lively with carbonation and tingly on the tongue. Pleasant yeasty fruity aroma. Very deep and complex flavors, almost burgundy in character, though remaining light in the mouth and easy drinking. Hoppy and some bitterness nicely matching the honey sweetness, very clean finish. A delicious and drinkable ale, with the high alcohol masked fairly well, and a wonderful buzz at the end. The spiciness came out more toward the end of the bottle. An excellent choice for my birthday, I loved it! A couple more like this and I might be a Belgiephile instead of a Stoutie!

Typical tripel. Pours hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Spicy fuit taste. Slighty weaker in comparison to la fin du monde.
