Draft @ Sunset Grill and tap. Tulip glass shows a perfect unclear gold with light retention. Nose is candi sugar and light yeast. Flavor is all about the yeast. Wheat, candi sugar upfront. Fruit notes of peach and apricot. Followed by a nice dry hopping. Real spicy aftertaste. Dry texture with a cotton ball feel. Alcohol is masked really. Very flavorful triple, nice offering as always from Allagash! BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 12, 2013
On tap. Pours with a clear yellow hued body with a large and retentive white head. Aromas are hoppy, dill, pinesol, lemon peel, mild tea, fruity esters, pear and light black pepper. Flavors are dry, floral, medium bitter, citrus zest, lemon, tea, dry with some pear esters and mild phenols. Lively carbonation, dry and mildly warming.

Peppery yeast and light citrus and grassy hops. A slight bit buttery and off but still pretty nice. Yeast dominated this beer and made it muddled a bit. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2013
On draft at propig, strong, Belgian flavors, some hop flavors, very yeast forward for alagash tmoreau (4590) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On tap and a 12 oz. pour to a tubbler style glass at DMK Burger Bar in Lombard, IL., showing a lightly hazed, golden hue, with persistent, white, frothy head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was light yeast, smooth Pils malt, strong fruitiness, citrus as lemon, rind-like zest, and spicey phenols. Moderate, but lingering, earthy & peppery hop bitterness successfully masked the alcohol effect until later in the flavor, as the brew warmed. Also present were mild sugary sweetness, light astringency/tartness, and lively effervesence, all in a medium body. Quaffable but potent.

Appearance: Served up a clouded, golden body with a couple inches of white, thick foam that lasts (and lasts).
Smell: Lightly bready, lightly grainy pils, wheat malts. Clove buds preserved in alcohol, notes of grassiness and citrus popping with pith, also subtler orchards fruits, maybe a little lychee.
Taste: Pale malts, maybe some lightish wheat with a touch of overall breadiness. It starts candi sugar sweet but it instantly begins drying away, particularly as the hop bitterness kicks in. Displays a similar fruity melange in the middle, same as the original, but with a larger citrus element. Cracked cloves. Peppery alcohol tries to hit you with a hammer, but the other various flavors try to keep it at bay. The other fruit flavors dim down as the bitter, warming finish takes hold.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Surprisingly soft mouthfeel.
Overall: An ample, hopped-up tripel, though, I would’ve been just as content with the standard tripel.
A very light, mild triple. Pale, clear yellow, mild aroma. Slight flavor, mildly fruity, crisp finish. Just not a lot going on. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Draft at Mekong. Almost forgot to rate this, which would have been a shame, seeing as how it is all awesome and stuff. Poured a lightly hazy gold with a nice head, pretty. Aroma was lemony hops - but not sour. Flavor was gummy sticky pale malts, followed by a pleasant belgian yeast spiciness, and then finishing with a very clean, not harshly bitter hop finish, slight lemon and grapefruit. One of the very few occasions where big hop flavors melded almost perfectly with a very belgian beer. Loved this one. Bitterness definitely lingered on the palate - but again, not harsh. Really well done. BeerFunGuy (875) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2013
This beer has a golden color with cloudy white hues. It has a strong citrus hop aroma but isn't bitingly bitter on the tongue. Is has a clean flavor which is a surprise when you smell it.

A good beer. Pours a very cloudy yellow-orange. Smells sweet, and a little bit of hops. Taste is the same, cloudy, creamy and some hops. Quite a hoppy ending. Had at Noc Noc.
