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.

.75 liter bottle Nice presentation, lovely aroma. Taste is reasonably yeasty, but there was too much bitterness this time. Dunno. Still a good beer.

Batch 26. I've had this baby laying down for a year ever since I picked it up from the brewery. Popped open with solid oomph. Gorgeous appearance, a hazy golden color with a nice head, subsiding into a rocky, lasting foam. Aroma was distinctly of honey drizzled over whole wheat bread. Explosive taste, filling the mouth with flavors of honey, oak, and hay. Nice bitterness on the finish, somewhat dry. The alcohol is warming, and the palate utterly perfect. A sensational beer. I bow in awe.

Joy joy joy. I found this in San Antonio at an establishment that I can't divulge. These moments of beer discovery in Texas are most prized. Touch of clove and pear esters. Big foamy off white head. Plenty of yeast character. Crisp cool and maybe peaks at 52°F. Delicious, lightly creamy feel. How does Allagash do this? The yeast tastes very familiar.

Wow. The belgian styles being brewed domestically are incredible. I am a big fan of New Belgium and I think this surpases that one. Pours up a huge fluffy paper white head. Wonderful flavor with hints of pear and honey. Long finish. Very good.

Batch # 38. Initially missed the honey notes as I had a mishap prior to tasting with real local honey. Certainly finding it at the bottom of a 750. Delicious. In a blind taste I can say that I would not have distinguished this as being anything other than a true Belgian. Peppery, spicey, and with the yeastyness that I expect. A finish that just goes on for miles. The label does not lie. Well, I have as of yet not done any cellaring .... As for the visuals - hazy, light gold with a whipped egg white lioke head that dissipates.

From batch #33 - golden and bubbly with a white head. Enticingly sweet aroma. Exhibits a dry honey flavor with a bit of spice that lingers on the tongue. At its best at cellar temperature.

Batch #36. Deep golden color, tiny bubbles in the tiny head. Peachy fruity honey nose. Earthy spicy pepper finish. Needs to be drunk at cellar temperature.

Batch 35. Slightly cloudy, soft light golden color. White head diminishes fairly quickly. Very nice aroma of fruit (apples?) and yeast. Flavor is predominantly malt, alcohol, and sweet fruit including bananna and apple. Finish is slightly dry, malty and warm from the alcohol. Also a pleasant lingering chewy bread/yeast aftertaste.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 Another top quality brew from Allagash. Slightly hazy orange-amber color with huge head and every visual characteristic of the Belgian style. Seemed similar to their White except for a few noticable variations. The appearance reminded me of Orval, color and head. Also fruity and a little spicy. Banana comes to mind. Fantastic brew! Best when on the warm side.

Draught. I guess I am going to be solo on this one. A friend of mine at a beer fest said "tripel what?" I would say that 3 times nothing is still nothing. The prevalent flavor is water. The beer is way too light. I can taste hints of yeast and maybe that sugary taste is honey, but ovverall this beer is empty. I didn't notice many of the aspects of the style. Very dissapointing.
