3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle, batch 171.
Poured into a Delirium Tremens glass. Pale amber color with two fingers of head that refuses to retreat. It sits so perfectly in the glass.
All sorts of fruit on the nose: banana, lemon, pear and lemongrass.
It tastes also exactly like it smells: banana, lemon and bread. Then at the end is a yeasty/bitter taste, which was out of place. On the pleasant side, there is a nice alcohol after taste.
Smooth and bubbly, then crisper at the end.
Superb looking and good smelling. The taste was right on until the end with the yeast/bitter taste that just did not belong. Maybe it was this batch or bottle.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very complex aroma, great head, deep golden color. It seems to be more highly hopped than traditional tripels, but it's still very well balanced. Awesome beer.

Purchased on my trip to Maine. Batch # 210. Pours a hazy golden colour with a white bubble head that stays. Dirty lacing. Spicy nose with the Belgian ale yeast. Smooth mouthfeel with the spices and yeast. Gets a little stronger in the finish. Quite a nice Tripel that goes down smoothly.

Sweet and caramely and wonderful. A bit wheaty and bready too. Very tasty and while I don’t think it is too hot, some others taste the alcohol. Solid overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably the best-known American representative of the tripel style, with stable, off-white, lacing foam and hazy golden blonde colour. Appealing aroma of pear syrup, dough, cider, fresh cream, young cheese, iron; taste soft apple-like fruitiness, soft and creamy mouthfeel, rounded, in the end some aromatic and light peppery hops, floral, alcohol very well hidden. Very enjoyable and close to the best Belgian tripels.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
his tripel from Allagash pours with a golden straw color with a slight haze about it. The head was a little weak in that it wasn’t big and bold like most beers of this style. Lots of carbonation.
A foamy presence is maintained through out with some nice lacing on glass.
Aroma is rich and malty with a herbal maybe even spicy hop bouquet.
Definitly dry with a rich malty taste. I can pick up some wheat beer tones from the yeast also.
Hoppy spiciness with maybe some fruity aspects to it.
Medium body in my opinion with a dry finish lingering well into the aftertaste.
Some alcohol warming.
Tastes like it goes a little flat at the end, or watery.
A good sipping beer.

Very nice aroma, smells of herbs and grassy. Lingers on the palate, with hints of fruit and herbs. Nice, creamy and smooth. Foamy white head on pour. Very drinkable and smooth.

A very nice tripel. Pours a bright orange. Smells of lemongrass and herbs. Taste is very creamy, lots of citrus in the beginning with lemongrass coming in at the finish. Had on tap in NYC.
