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.

Had on tap at Alewife in Baltimore. Pours a straw color with some head. Fruity and some spice on the nose. Somewhat sweet. More Trojan is expect for the style. Creamy and medium bodied. Nice beer. A bit too sweet.

Pours a foggy, platinum wheat color, with a finger and a half of lingering, white foam. Lacing dissipates quickly, but the foam keeps for quite a bit. The nose is potent of sweet honey, and oats (honey nut cheerios), with other notes of ripe, tropical fruits like mango, guava, and over-ripe banana. Mild spice coming through as well. The taste starts with a slight granny-smith apple, that carries as oat and honey notes start to bloom. There are slight notes of aforementioned tropical fruits, but more on the unripe/sour-ish side. The banana is muted a bit, as there is a bit of a spicy hop finish. Lingering hop with slight sweetness accompanies a lightly resiny mouthfeel. Overall mouthfeel is fairly full, and spritely.

Hazy golden with a white foamy head. Fruity nose with banana and a spice, maybe clove. Big mouth feel, malty wheat pokes is head through for a second and then disappears into a boozy sweetness. Banana, apple, lemon, bread. Coats you mouth in sweetness(good sweetness) and finishes boozy and dry. Complex, I would recommend.

Dan269605 (209) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Hazy straw color with two fingers of a pillowy white head. Aromas of passionfruit, grape, apple juice, bready yeast. On the tongue I get tropical sweetness, apple juice, yeast, light alcohol notes, creamy mouthfeel. Really great stuff. This is probably the best Ive had from Allagash so far. Id say this is also perhaps the second best Tripel Ive had, second to just Westmalle. They are quite similar, but I think the alcohol is hidden better in the Westmalle and drinks a bit smoother, but great nonetheless.

Well balanced for 9.0% brew with the alcohol well hidden. The taste is actually quite light. Light / Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. A slight maltiness is present with a lack of hop flavor. A fairly clean finish coupled with an afterglow of bitterness and alcohol.

More clear than I thought it would be, kinda piss colored. Didnt like the look.. I love the balance in this one. Just boozy enough to make you feel it, but not overshadowing the belgian yeast profile that I have come to love. Carbonation is light. The hops have a mild resin, but its the yeast that really shines with this beer. If i were blind tasting, I would not guess that this was not made in belgium. Very good

Floral aroma, with a slight citrussy hint. A beautiful clear straw/golden yellow, with a large white head, the head holds well, and has only moderate lacing. Taste is sweet with a hint of floral bitterness. Feels pleasant on the tongue, a tiny bit oily. Overall, superb beer.

Tripel Ale, is hazy bright orange with a coarse thick white head. Citrus armoa.Very little bitterness, rather clean and refreshing with taste of orange peel, citrus, lemon. Very light for a 9% ABV. Medium carbonation, just a enough to be refreshing. Love this pale Tripel.
