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.

Medium amber color with thin white head. Spicy, perfumy aroma. Yeast. Coriander. Fruit. Moderate carbonation. Medium body. Flavor was passable but not exceptional. Typical, in my book, of a Belgian tripel. Bittersweet. Spices. Not my style.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Swet. spicy, caramelly. Thin white head that dissipated quickly over a golden body. Round Belgian flavor. Extremely spicy finish with a strong alcohol note. Soft and bubbly with a strong carbonation. Alcohol leaves it feeling clean. Delicous Belgian.

50F. Smells like pulpy orange juice with a twidge of lemon, and a little rust. Cool. Kinda spicy - coriander, cumin, cardamon, white pepper. Good little sour yawn. Bosc pear. Then the alcohol dries it out; distills these flavors to their bitter essence.

This is a good beer, but it still doesnt blow me away. I think I find American made tripels lacking, kind of like when Hollywood remakes a great foreign film, just not the same.

Batch #51. Pours gold with a large, lasting head and great legs. Aroma is of honey, spice, and malt. A sweet smell with a sweet taste, bananas and honey in the taste. Some oragne and perhaps pepper in the taste. A smooth, warming mouthfeel as the alcohol dissipates pff the tongue. Honey, too.

Just like any other good tripel, only less so. Unremarkable aroma and taste. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy and finishes without fanfare

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Golden color with white head. The aroma is sweet but, I couldn’t pick anything special out. Just nothing special going on here.

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!
