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.

Pours a dense golden orange with a lingering white head and some lacing. Has a very fruity nose. Apricots, banana, pineapple. Lots of herbal and spicey notes and belgian yeast. Very enticing. Taste has quite a bit of belgian yeast and spice. Coriander & clove. Some fruitiness as described in the aroma and honey for a welcome sweetness and an underlying hop presence all makes for a well balanced and exceptional tasting beer. Medium to full body with a long dry finish with just a bit of both the sweetness and hop bitterness carrying through. Smooth with the perfect carbonation and plenty of warming alcohol. Really enjoying sipping on this one.

Originally rated on 8/15/08. My first beer from Allagash was a pleasant discovery. Out of batch#113 Their tripel Poured a creamy, hazy yellow, plentiful carbonation that formed a huge off white head. Aroma of fruits and spices, mostly apricot and a little plum. The taste also had the fore mentioned, but my only drawback was the alcohol it was rather noticeable but it wasnt bad. Mouthfeel was creamy and smooth even with the high alc. content. I thought it was a pretty good beer and i will purchase it again.

Alpha10 (533) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2016
2016/03/10 - Pours a hazy orange-honey colour with a thin, soapy, white head that reduces to a film and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is honey, coriander, cloves, yeasty phenols (banana, bubblegum), herbal notes, peach and light citrus. Taste is honey, herbal notes, banana, doughy yeast, light citrus and spices. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with smooth carbonation and a long, herbal finish. Very nice triple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Allagash Tripel Ale. Not reserve. Large corked and caged bottle. Lightly chilled. Poured into a Chimay chalice. Large white pillow head thins after a few minutes. Some lacing. Beer is a haizy golden color. Aroma is mostly pear with some faint bannana notes. Taste is light to medium sweet with next to no bitterness. Some notes of fruits and clove. Texture is soft and smooth with light to average carbonation. Medium bodied beer. Over all a very good tripel. Much enjoyed.

Still fairly new to Belgium style ales. While I can certainly appreciate them I'm just not "getting" them jut having fun trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly reddish amber, very clear, not terribly heady. Slightly spicy aroma of coriander, banana flavor, sweet candi sugar notes as well. Somewhat oily mouthfeel kind of puts me off. Good beer.
