An awesome brew by Allagash! This one is almost as good as Allagash FOUR but at half the cost. Pours a nice looking golden color with big fat yeasties floating around, I love it! Nice rocky Belgian style head and good lacing rings wrap around the glass nicely. I was suprised at the amount of complexity this brew offers. There is the fruity Belgian notes that you would expect, but there is also this honey herbal tea flavor that I really enjoyed. This brew is full of body, it was better then I thought it would be!

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked in our first trade. Pours deep golden yellow with a big white head. Strong fruity citrus aroma with lots of yeast. Flavor has lots of bitter orange. Unique tripel.

Boutip (6212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2005
Bottle: Poured a light golden color beer with great carbonation and good head retention. Aroma is quite sweet with a nice floral background. Taste is sweeter then expected but well balance by some spices and wheat. Would have been better with a bit more kick (spices, it seems a bit light compared to Westmalle or De Dolle Tuve. Still very enjoyable but it seems a bit overrated compared to some other abbey tripel beer out there.

Batch 54. Opened this one as a nice complement for Easter dinner. Popped the cork, and got a quick aroma of citrus and banana. Poured slightly hazy golden with a good head that lasted and left a good lace. Good aroma with the aforementioned citrus and banana, along with peppery spices, some vanilla and some floral hops. First sip was dry with a substantial bite. Very floral flavor with some citrus (mostly grapefruit), some vanilla and quite a yeasty bite. It finished dry, astringent and a little bitter. Not too bad. As it warmed (or as my tastebuds started to numb from the 9%), it became sweet and dry. Honey, banana and vanilla flavors took over. When warmer, it finished very smooth. As far as tripels go, this is one of the better ones.

hazy gold pour, a good amt. of white frothy head. aroma is spice, alcohol, yeast. taste is very yeasty, sweet, a nice amount of spice, and detectable alcohol, but not to a fault. smooth mouthfeel. quite good!

batch 53, thanks to footbalm. very yeasty and green grape-like, the aroma is like a half-fermented white wine. quite sweet despite all the alcohol, and it eventually picks up a hint of bitterness, with a tiny olive-like flavor deep in the finish. very good beer, the best tripel ive had.

A cloudy golden colored beer. It was nicely hopped and yet sweet. This combination partnered with the spicy hints made this a very plesant beer to drink.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow, a pinky fingered head that recedes quickly into thin fizzy film. Smells of sour apples, raisins. Complex taste, initially yeasty with gentle hops, settles into a sweeter notes of vanilla, honey, grapefruity citrus. Swishes creamy, mmm, and finishes crisp and dry. Tastes of apple linger. My friend says it is what you would get if you were eating apple pie and drinking beer at the same time. Lively small bubbles dissipate in the glass but are reborn on your tongue. Medium bodied, very drinkable.

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.
