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.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Tasted in Los Angeles. Obtained from either Plumpjack in Noe/San Fran or Berkeley. Appearance is straw / light yellow colour. Highly carbonated with a sustained white fluffy yet dense head. Aroma has citrus notes, with a spicyness remiscent of corriander with a slightly sweet nose. Flavour is sweet, slightly burning sensation from the alcohol. There is a very warm after taste present as a result of the alcohol flavour.

Corked bottle, Batch #46
Hazy, pale blond color. Good Tripel, strong spicy character and quite dry in the beginning, a bit alcoholic, with a light corky character and a very light fruitness, good but not so extraordinary.

Very yeasty in the nose but the malts really come through in the flavour Sweet with spicy herbal notes. Far superior to the Dubbel.

Ive been holding on to this since I started drinking world class beer. Batch #35. Pours a clear golden with a large frothy white head, much like Orval or Duvel. Huge clouds of bubbles are swirling up to the top of my glass. How am I supposed to take a sip from a beer whos froth is taller than that of a cappucino? The aroma is a very nice combination of honey, grapes, and a touch of banana. Taste is dry white wine with some spice, not too sweet at all. This could substitute a fine champagne (and would be a hell of a lot cheaper). Finish is dry and refreshing. Excellent beer. In my humble opinion, I think Allagash has it over Unibroue when it comes to western Belgian-style brewers.

Bottle: Nice citrus aromas with lots of orange peel. Banana in there too. Pours a hazy orangish-yellow with a big white head with very good retention. Lots of citrus with banana in the background. A little sweetness in the finish. Leaves an orange peel aftertaste. Another courtesy of Styles.

Now here ya go. This is much better belgian drink that I actually enjoy. It still has that belgain buisness to it that makes me want to stop drinking but the malts are so much more sweet and enjoyable. This thing is actually drinkable. What else can I say.
