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.

Pours a cloudy light golden hue with great head and silky lacing. Great complex nose: Bread, yeast orange and honey. Nice spiciness with a hop bite and a good malty background. Nice creamy texture and a spicy hop finish. Very nice beer.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 This is the ultimate summer beer. Golden and wet. Frothy and cloudlike. Nose of honey, honeysuckle, hops, saaz hops and lots of them almost like a good czech pils. Flavors match these with even more hoppy goodness. Excellent brew. G-rat

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2004
Hazy, orange. Fruity and alcoholic. A bit more sweet and strong than most other Abbey triples. I would store this one for several years, than I could imagine it would get sublime.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 Caged and corked bottle. Nose is bready and yeasty. The flavor has notes of citrus, banana, anise, bread dough, berry, alcohol, and malt. Finish is super clean. Mouthfeel is nice and light. This is good stuff.

Bottle. nice earthy aroma with a sweet hint. pours a hazy yellow with a thick fluffy head. . fruity sweet taste, i guess is from the passion fruit. i don’t know what passion fruit tastes like, so that could be the taste that i can’t identify. peppery malt flavor. very nice this makes me smile when i drink it, and i don’t smile much.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 I rated this once about two weeks ago but I lost the sheet of paper I wrote it on. This turned out to be something of a blessing as it gave me an excuse to buy this wonder of a beer again. This is a very pale triple--I’ll call it golden rather than yellow because it tastes good. The first pour is crystal clear but there’s a touch of sediment in later glasses. The head is nice and fluffy, creamy with tiny, tiny bubbles and it lasts long enough to leave thousands of of drippy little spots of lace on the side of my chalice. The nose is somewhat surprising--a bit more hops than I expected, almost-hints of citrus along with actual hints of bread and honey but not much if any of that banana they talk about in the description. The palate is nice and thick, some slight stickiness is made more pronounced by the bitterness in the finish. This is really an excellent beer. I enjoy the extra bit of hops Allagash has added. It gives the beer an American spin without becoming some ham-fisted monster and still staying relatively true to the style.

Whata ya know? I found my old rating of this. It was much higher (4.5). I thought the beer tasted a lot thinner the second go round..... Cloudy golden, gorgeous creamy white head that lasts forever and leaves huge sheets of lace. Nose is mild, slightly bready with a hint of sweet spice and some floral notes. Creamy, thick mouthfeel with a velveteen cusion of carbonation. This a truly complex and delicious, easily on par with the best of the Trappists.

An unclear orange beer with a fine white head. The aroma is of yeast and coriander. The flavor is sweet with notes of oranges, yeast, and coriander. A nice American produced Belgian beer, though a little on the sweet side.

hopdog (9618) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Poured a hazy golden color with a small head. Aromas and tastes of fruits (bananas), spices (cloves?), and yeast. Bitter in a good way. Very good Tripel that I will definitely drink again.

Cloudy golden coloured. Aroma of yeast, fruits and spices. Sweet and fruity flavour with a yeasty finish.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Good hazy golden hue with a tiny bit of head on it. Aroma is a rather spicy malt and yeast smell, a little spicier than usual for a Belgian strong. Mouthfeel is a thicker than expected for this brew. Crisp flavor with a small carbonation and hop crispness to the end.
