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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2003
Medium honey orange with medium light creamy head. Very faint floral and yeast aroma. Mouth filling medium light body. Soft floral honey and tropical fruity sweet and lighter bitter flavours. I was a bit disappointed in this one as I found it kinda bland for an Abbey tripel

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Slightly hazy peach color with a thick whitish head. Aroma of fruity tastiness (light pineapple) and bready malts with a slight twang. Sweet maltiness with fruity flavors. Sugary and lightly hoppy with a subtle spiciness. What I expect from a trippel. Moderate mouthfeel and soft but steady carbonation. Nice dry finish. Alcohol not evident.

Gold colour with small white head. Aroma of citrus and alcohol. Flavour is malty, yeasty, with some alcohol heat. Finishes dry and musty.

CapFlu (4518) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2003
(75o ml bottle) Batch 40. Golden body with dissipating white head. Citrus and perfume nose. Strong malt, vanilla and slight hops. Finishes mellow and marshy...

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Batch 35. Hazy golden color. Soapy white head that left good lacing. Enticing smells of apricots and peaches, candy sugar, banana and vanilla. Taste is best described as a combination of the smell, apricots, peaches and bananas drizzled with vanilla and sprinkled with candy sugar. Yet this beer somehow manages not to be overly sweet. The 9% ABV is extraordinarily well hidden. One of the best American Belgian triples. Top Notch.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Wow, why is it that I feel the effects of alcohol much more with lighter beer than with darker beers. Have only had half a goblet and am already losing focus. Thin lacey head with great carbonation. Aroma dominatd by wheat/yeast with a little bit of wine/grapes. Color is a medium gold with decent clarity. Flavor is a combnation of wheat and spices with a bubbly effervescence. Finish is long like the description says and it slightly bitter and leaves a plesant aftertaste in the mouth. Additionally, there is a nice alcohol warming. Yeah Baby! A very good triple.

andy609 (143) - Auburndale, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Batch 34. Yellowish brown color with a big head. Rich aroma of alcohol, grapes, bannana, pear, other fruits. Trace of hops as well. Lots of pleasant alcohol in the taste with lots of fruit too. Pear, apple, raisin, it's all in there. A wonderful beer. Savor every sip. When you're finished with the 750 mL bottle, at 9%, you'll really feel it.

Let me start by saying I'm an unabashed Allagash fan... On with the show: This is a Batch 32 bottle. Nice head, pleasing citrus aroma. Color is cloudy golden. Flavor is bright and sweet, with hints of spice. HUGE lacing. Dry finish. One of my all-time favorites.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Sweet and spicy wheat aroma with some nice citrus. Light golden amber cloudy with light head. Silky body with medium-heavy champagne carbonation. Alcoholic with spices and herbs. Wheat, grass. Light hops. Sweet finish and after, with light bitterness. A brandy-like smoothness in the after.
