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.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Batch #47 – This beer has a sparkling clear golden body with very lively medium bubbles careening to certain death in a nice pillowy white head. The aroma is that of yeast, citrus (orange), spices (clove, a touch of ginger), and banana. The flavor is outstanding; the banana come out more in the flavor then if did in the aroma. All of the other flavors mingle together nicely to provide a wonderful flavor spectrum. The body is medium-full with a thick mouth coating finish, that also manages to be crisp and warming. There is no evidence of alcohol in the flavor and only a tad on the palate. An excellent American brewed Beligan Tripel.

Batch #32: Wow! This is some excellent strong ale. The spices were light and the honey was just right for the palate. Smooth and subtle sweet finish. ;)

Wow what a great tasting triple. Has a lot of flavors going on, I can taste hints of citrus and bannana in this brew. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent !!!

Excellent triple. Highly carbonated with a head that stands up. Pleasant grainy aroma and flavor with a nice balance of hops.

Amazing American beer that reminds my untrained taste to Chimay Blue. High alcohol content provides some bite similar to an IPA. I’m new to this ratings process--but I know Allagash is now one of my favorite beers.

Robust 1.5" white head, moderate lacing. Hazy medium gold. Sweet aroma with fruity notes, low banana present. Well balanced sweet at first with rush of alcohol soon after. Low bitter and moderate grain complexity. Moderate to high body and high, long-lasting warmth. A beautiful beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light golden orange color. Very smooth, sweet with vanilla flavor, good spices. Soothing and warm. This is a real treat, almost a dessert. Couldn't wait to finish the bottle.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 Bright golden, a bit cloudy. Darker color than expected. Nose is lovely, a bit bready, quite spicy, hints of lemon and orange peel. Nice yeasty flavor, good roundness. Has a spicy zippiness, has a slightly pine character to it. Finishes dry. Chewy and sweet, bubblegumlike with lots of candy sugars. Nice palate. The best tripel in the world, and it comes from Maine? Who woulda thunk it.

Let me start by saying I'm an unabashed Allagash fan... On with the show: This is a Batch 32 bottle. Nice head, pleasing citrus aroma. Color is cloudy golden. Flavor is bright and sweet, with hints of spice. HUGE lacing. Dry finish. One of my all-time favorites.

Bottle, "Batch #47" (3.21.04) Pours a very pale but brilliant yellow, completely clouded with yeast; medium to smallish white head with excellent longevity; fair, visible carbonation that presents itself as a light fizz on the palate. Aromas are subtle but complex: honey, ginger, tropical fruit salad and cream. The flavors are much of the same up front, plus a nice depth of spices - coriander, allspice - and fantastic yeast and salt notes at the end. Absolutely amazing beer. I wish there was more of an alcohol presence, but otherwise perfect and so so so quaffable.
