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.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
Competently constructed American version of a Belgian tripel; Sweet, spicy (cloves!), slightly bitter, balanced and completely in character for a Belgian tripel, and on par with the typical tripel from Belgium; The spiciness comes out mostly in the finish; The mild nose is lightly sweet with some spicy notes; Carbonated mouthfeel and fairly sticky; Golden yellow in color, too light to be a shade of golden, and definitely a little hazy; White head is composed of tiny bubbles and has solid retention, but lacing slides down the glass

Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Nice lacing down the glass. Fruit and yeast on the nose. Tingly mouthfeel. Citrus fruits ands spices on the tongue. Bold and crisp flavors. Nice smooth finish, with a lingering aftertaste. A great beer at a great price!

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Bursting with the smell of fresh sweetbread. The use of the fenallic yeast kind of give it a minty aroma and flavor. Not too much mintiness to ruin the beer but borderline drinking too quick after brushing your teeth.

Bomber, batch #49. Aroma is yeasty with banana and clove. Color is a hazy blonde with a moderate off-white head. Start is kind of metallic. some cirtus lemon notes in the middle. Malty finish. *shrugs*

If Allagash can make a Belgian this well, and sell it for less than five bucks a bottle, who needs Belgium? This is an exceptional beer and an even more exceptional value for the buck.

Bottle, "Batch #47" (3.21.04) Pours a very pale but brilliant yellow, completely clouded with yeast; medium to smallish white head with excellent longevity; fair, visible carbonation that presents itself as a light fizz on the palate. Aromas are subtle but complex: honey, ginger, tropical fruit salad and cream. The flavors are much of the same up front, plus a nice depth of spices - coriander, allspice - and fantastic yeast and salt notes at the end. Absolutely amazing beer. I wish there was more of an alcohol presence, but otherwise perfect and so so so quaffable.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Nice pour, very dry yellow, cloudy, with a huge head. Head leaves nice lacing. Very complex- yeasty, hay, leather, herbal, and estery aroma. I also noticed that this is one of the most highly hopped tripels out there. Lots of earthy and spicy hop aromas. Flavor is of sweet fruits and nicely balanced by malts. Very nice mouthfeel, and finishes quite smooth. Awesome tripel. One of the best out there.

FlacoAlto (4100) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2004
This beer has a dry, grassy, yeasty, musty, bready aroma. The aroma is quite complex and perfect for a Tripel. The beer is brilliantly clear, a bright gold color, with a dense meringue like white head that is held up by a prodigious carbonation. The taste is sharp, astringent, lightly sweet, a bit of grain, herbal, and finishes with a bit of alcohol. This is a great interpretation by Allagash, this beer has lots of flavor, unlike the breweries Dubbel. This beer is so effervescent that it has quite a drying effect. This beer has completely restored my faith in Allagash, they can make some tasty brew.

Tap. Had this one after a fairly fruity beer and I'm not sure if that contributed to my not noticing the fruit this one is supposed to offer up or not. I got some spiciness and cloves and alcohol though from this almost brown hazy gold beer. Very smooth and easy drinking and then the fruit came out on the palate, although mildly. Quite enjoyable.

batch #36 750ml bottle. Very nice golden color, crystal clear with a typical head. Aroma is very pleasant, citrus and spice. Taste is citrus and other fruits, banana, pineapple maybe. Possibly hint of wheat. Moutfeel is smooth with a tiny bit of heat from the 9% abv. Not at all overly citrus. A good brew from the nice people in Maine!
