Thanks to Margaret (LilBeerDoctor) for this. Hazy orange amber with no head--a broken ring of a few (practically) microscopic bubbles. Oak, lemon, and buttery brett are up front. I already wish that Id shared this one. Vinous notes, light candy sugar and only a hint of Belgian yeastiness. Flavor is fairly tangy up front, though the diacetyl keeps things balanced. However, there is the brett funk and light barnyard notes that mingle well with the lemon and wine tang that have this beer going all over the place. Some warming alcohol is present, and probably contributes to the dry wood finish. BItterness peaks around a 3, some slightly grainy notes coming forth after the finish. Only the slightest tingle of carbonation is present with a medium-full body. Sourness peaked around a 3-4. I dont feel this resembles a tripel much anymore, but it is a damn fine beer.

Courtesy goldtwins. Gold/bronze, insignificant head. Cross a tripel and some rodenbach and you got it. Medium/full body, very drinkable. Excellent.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Courtesy SoLan. pours a light, copper color. aroma is full on funk. notes of dill, summer fruit, some acetic notes. The flavor is more of the same, with a vinous note thatbrings everything into focus.

vyvvy (3999) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Thanks to xmarcnolanx for sharing this rarity. Pours clear golden with no head. The aroma is sour with vinegar and light butter and is quite sharp. Medium body that is sharp and has minimal carbonation. The taste has vinegar, butter, citrus, pepper and honeysuckle. The finish is lightly citric, slick and buttery with only a slight hint of abv. The feel and taste gets grainier as it warms. This is nice, but a proper bottling and aging would probably make this quite wonderful.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Aroma is lactic, sweet and cereal, fruitiness and oaky. Taste is very sour and full fruitiness. Definitely some diacetyl in there. Also some cereal and carbonation. Finishes with a lingering red fruit lactic sourness that lingers along with the cereal grain. Graininess is in no way obtrusive or overwhelming. Also some stone fruit pit. Solid, but not complex. Would like another fresh sample.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2008
This one pours a light golden orange with a small head that dissipated quickly leaving a bit of lacing. The initial smells were of sweet fruits, pears and apples, and a big brett presence. I definitely thought this was a great crisp smelling brew on a hot summer afternoon. The taste was sweet with apricots but with a big funky brett kick. The finish was where I got the first big oak taste, which lingered for a while. Mouthfeel was very light and crisp and suited well for a hot spring afternoon. This is a very drinkable brew from Allagash and I would seek this one out if you have the chance. This one is ideal on a hot spring afternoon in GA.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla oak, citrus fruits, spicy yeast, brett, white grapes, and leather. Taste of citrus fruits, lighter Tripel spices, oak, vanilla, and a lightly sour finish, with no alcohol at all. Thanks to TomDecapolis and goldtwins for setting this one up!

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Thanks to TomDecapolis for sharing this one! Poured a medium golden color with a very small sized head. Aromas of wood, funkiness, vinous, woody, and fruity. Tastes of vanilla, wood, funky, fruits, and grapes. Light tart and sour finish.

TomDecapolis (4482) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Thanks to goldtwins for the 10 oz growler trade. Pours a mostly translucent golden with a small bubbly white head that went away fairly quickly. Aroma of vanilla, oak, musty funkiness, some tripel spicy notes, bready, barnyard, some mixed fruits, light alcohol and white wine notes. Flavor of oak, vanilla, funky, some mixed fruits, tripel spiciness is still lingering, Allagash Tripel did well with the treatment they put it through.
