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.

Clear yellow with a strong Belgian funky smell, taste is vanilla and subtle spice, finish is long, crisp, and dry. A very good example of the style.

12 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet. A: Pours a semi-hazy yellow color. The head is a finger high, with a bone white shade and a creamier texture than what Iím used to from the style. Its staying power isnít fantastic, unfortunately, but it does leave a good ring of lacing down the glass. S: Oh wow, this is quite intriguing. After being immediately poured, itís a rather peppery, bready smell - let it sit, though, and it develops great fruit notes. Itís heavily skewed towards bananas and lemons in particular. Candied sugar is quite prevalent. In fact, my only complaint is that it could be a little more subdued. Still, thereís no denying this has a wonderful aroma. T: The flavors in general are pretty uniform - that is, it doesnít start with flavor X and finish with flavor Y. Its notes of banana, wheat, candied sugar, lemon, and black pepper are consistent from start to finish. Some suggestions of herbal bitterness try to sneak their way into the back end, and this singular note is enough to convince me Iím drinking something very, very good. M: Itís fairly sweet, and slightly less carbonated than its Belgian counterparts. The lingering sugar is felt, but thereís just enough dryness to help this go down easily. I think because the sweetness is rather chalky and coarse, it doesnít stick to the palate like other high-gravity beers do. O: This is a very solid tripel. Honestly, with many íMurican made Belgian styles, thereís something - maybe subtle, maybe shameless, but itís there - that tells me íyep, this is as íMurican as apple pie and obesity.í But with this, Iíd swear itís as Belgian as french fries if served to me blindly. Itís balanced, delicate, and easy to drink; thatís enough for me.

Clear yellow to orange pour with pale white head. Aroma is dripping with fruit. Canteloupe, pineapple, lemon and hard candies. Flavor is outrageously complex. Lemon, pineapple, pepper, grapefruit, more canteloupe, honey, something herbal like maybe a little mint? Palate is unmatched. Medium body with a lively carbonation that fills the mouth with meringue-like foam. Alcohol burn is there and keeps it interesting, but doesnít dominate. This is one of those beers I was shocked to see I hadnít reviewed yet, as Iíve loved it for years. Itís a unique interpretation of the style, yet it fits right in and really stands as a benchmark American example. Itís so bright, lively and refeeshing, but deep, rich and complex. Probably Allagashí best beer and one of the best Triples in existence.

Bottle: Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head. Yeast, passion fruit, mango aroma. Semi-tropical fruits, yeast, orange malt.... Tastes like a Belgian boat drink. Very fruity and tasty.

ScipioA (370) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Hazy gold pour with a nice tan head. Fruity candy and banana esters on the nose. Flavor has some grainy malts to back it up. Little to no hop presence, but lots of yeastiness going on. Thick and slick mouthfeel with some warming alcohol action.

Pours light amber with a pillowy, white head that lingers. Copious lacing. Nose is musty apple cider and rich malt. Cherry and raisin notes. Taste is balanced. Sweet backbone with nice hoppy overtones. Full bodied and effervescent. Very nice brew!
