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 19, 2003 Another top quality brew from Allagash. Slightly hazy orange-amber color with huge head and every visual characteristic of the Belgian style. Seemed similar to their White except for a few noticable variations. The appearance reminded me of Orval, color and head. Also fruity and a little spicy. Banana comes to mind. Fantastic brew! Best when on the warm side.

Draught. I guess I am going to be solo on this one. A friend of mine at a beer fest said "tripel what?" I would say that 3 times nothing is still nothing. The prevalent flavor is water. The beer is way too light. I can taste hints of yeast and maybe that sugary taste is honey, but ovverall this beer is empty. I didn't notice many of the aspects of the style. Very dissapointing.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2003
Big orange and candi sugar nose, with a hint of muscat grapes. The palate is very fruity, with loads of orange, pineapple, and honey. The finish is long and spicy (black pepper).

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2003
A smooth golden ale with frothy head. Honey fruitiness in the nose. Malty fruity flavors with touch earthy spiciness. Finishes relatively balanced.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2003
This beer had an explosive cork and an overflowing effervescence. It poured a cloudy gold with a white head. The taste was a little dry compared to other tripels, but still very good.

A great hazy golden colour with a perfect head which does not fade at all! A great smell of cloves and bananas, and other complex aromas. The taste is great...pure complexity. Full bodied with a good carbonation and a clean taste - honey, bananas, spice, wheat all dominate the palate. A great beer in a big bottle - suitable for cellaring makes it a great beer. Especially at this price! I picked up the large bottle for $6. This was batch #34. At the store (Beers of the World in Rochester, New York) they had batch #30 & #34, but I figured the latter would be better. I might buy both batches and cellar them for a while, to see what results can happen in a year or two! :-) Definately try this beer, or any by Allagash if you haven't already!

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 !!!

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2003
This had a lot of Belgian yeast, a lot of fruity estery malt, and just a lot of Belgianness. In fact, I don't think there was anything really special about this beer, it was just really big and really powerful within the style. Very musky on the back of the palate and just very pervasive, but nothing really special.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Had a typical tripel taste, with a lot of yeast going on. Not very complex, light bodied. A good beer, but not anything amazing.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2003
Cloudy light orange color. Nose is yeasty and spicey with hints of banana. The body is heavy on the yeast with a nice spiciness and a decent hop bite towards the end. Balanced, complex, juicy. Very nice.
