UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Batch #47 – This beer has a sparkling clear golden body with very lively medium bubbles careening to certain death in a nice pillowy white head. The aroma is that of yeast, citrus (orange), spices (clove, a touch of ginger), and banana. The flavor is outstanding; the banana come out more in the flavor then if did in the aroma. All of the other flavors mingle together nicely to provide a wonderful flavor spectrum. The body is medium-full with a thick mouth coating finish, that also manages to be crisp and warming. There is no evidence of alcohol in the flavor and only a tad on the palate. An excellent American brewed Beligan Tripel. McCarty23 (53) - Vista, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
One of best American Triples. Nose of some Belgian type, yet bigger, some hops that are earthy. Continuing nose of all spice. Golden clear, bubbly head and lacing. Flavor of multiples of layers of grains and a yeasty ending with alcohol warmth. CrimsonGhost1971 (188) - USA - JAN 2, 2003
Batch #32: Wow! This is some excellent strong ale. The spices were light and the honey was just right for the palate. Smooth and subtle sweet finish. ;) BeerDude78 (91) - Brick NJ, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2003
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 !!! astrivian (16) - Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Excellent triple. Highly carbonated with a head that stands up. Pleasant grainy aroma and flavor with a nice balance of hops.

Amazing American beer that reminds my untrained taste to Chimay Blue. High alcohol content provides some bite similar to an IPA. I’m new to this ratings process--but I know Allagash is now one of my favorite beers. perezs25 (42) - - MAR 20, 2014
Robust 1.5" white head, moderate lacing. Hazy medium gold. Sweet aroma with fruity notes, low banana present. Well balanced sweet at first with rush of alcohol soon after. Low bitter and moderate grain complexity. Moderate to high body and high, long-lasting warmth. A beautiful beer!

Light golden orange color. Very smooth, sweet with vanilla flavor, good spices. Soothing and warm. This is a real treat, almost a dessert. Couldn't wait to finish the bottle. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 Bright golden, a bit cloudy. Darker color than expected. Nose is lovely, a bit bready, quite spicy, hints of lemon and orange peel. Nice yeasty flavor, good roundness. Has a spicy zippiness, has a slightly pine character to it. Finishes dry. Chewy and sweet, bubblegumlike with lots of candy sugars. Nice palate. The best tripel in the world, and it comes from Maine? Who woulda thunk it.
