Spencer trappiste glass. This brew is not as deeply complex as most Belgian tripels, but it definitely has the up front taste profile of a tripel, and hides its high ABV quite well. I really don’t care for banana in my beer, and this has a little aroma, but negligible flavor of the yellow fruit, so it’s OK. Smooth, flavorful and easy drinking, a commendable effort from Allagash.

Batch #210. Goût d’épices, banane, pelure d’orange et alcool. Plutôt légère en bouche pour une tripel et très buvable. Belle représentation des tripels belges traditionnelles.

Hazy golden pour with firm white, lasting foam. Aroma of apricot and other fruity esters. Tastes of honey and yeast. Smooth finish despite high carbonation, with lasting sweet, fruit flavors.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle Pour is golden/honey colour. Head is rich and thick. Head lingers and emits aromas of banana and yeast. Tastes of tropical fruit and wheat combined to offer a sweet malty complexity that belays the 9% abv. Finsh is soft and sweet with persistent tropical notes.

Bottle, as "Allagash Tripel Ale." Fruity, large peach nose, with light fumes. Light honey color. Peaches, candi sugar, light wheat, tiny bittering. Medium body. Gentle and very pleasant. However, it doesn’t seem like a tripel, really.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is excellent with a huge foamy, frothy, thick, off-white head, that settles very slowly, some lace and a clear yellow color. Aroma is mainly yeast with some grain and a hint of fruit. Flavor’s like nose, slightly bittersweet, some tang, honey, rye bread. Body is a tad soft. Beer is very drinkable with a little alcohol warmth.

Tap at Blind Tiger, New York. Colour is cloudy light orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, orange, spices, Belgian yeast, some sweetness and malts. Too sweet tripel but overall enjoyable.

I absolutely love this ale. It has a nice golden color with hints of various fruits and full bodied - It’s very complex in flavor and has a wonderful after taste :)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with no lacing or head retention. Smells of banana and yeast. Tastes like Belgian yeast and bananas also. Not a bad beer at all and certainly does not taste like a triple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. Pale light straw colored, not too hazy, with thick white head leaving some lacing up top. Modest carbonation. Aroma is peppery, yeasty, very Belgian. Its a strong beer with an alcohol presence, bananas, peppers, bread, some candy sugar. A little simple compared to the greats, but tasty and not overdone.
