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.

750 mL bottle in a snifter. Beautiful hazy golden orange pour with heavy head which slowly dissipates. Slowly rising carbonation. Almost closer to a quadrupel flavor. Not as hoppy as other tripels. Sweeter and smoother, but still incredibly balanced. Very refreshing and the high alcohol content isn’t as noticeable as with other tripels.

This is a cloudy golden ale that I recommend to anyone that has not tried it. Incredible price for what you are getting. A fruity yet distinguishing aroma that is incredibly smooth in taste. You will not regret the purchase.

Great tasting Belgian style beer! Delicious! What a pleasant surprise! Better than a lot of the Belgian beers I have tried. And made here in the USA! Well done!

Apparence : Dorée, peu trouble, gros col blanc, bonne rétention et laissant une belle dentelle. Carbonatation active.

Nez : Malt, coriandre, agrumes, léger miel, léger alcool, notes de poire après la vague plus phénolique.

Goût : Malt, coriandre, poire et agrumes dans une entrée fruitée et épicée. Amertume moyenne en finale avec les mêmes notes qui nous tiennent. Palais mi sucrée, mais finale bien sèche.

Sensation : Effervescence étonnamment douce, corps moyen, semi-huileuse, belle longueur.

Bref : Une Tripel qui touche toutes les notes de malt, de fruits, d’épices et d’alcool dans un liquide qui se laisse facilement boire. À la fois sucrée et sèche, il est indéniable que cette bière est bien réalisée.

Best tripel. Like the fruity tones instead of spices of others. Best of the best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog, bottle in 09 with Sean and Patrick. Pours a hazy golden with 2 finger foamy white head. Notes are piney hops, delicate florals, plum, fig, grain, and spices. Some honey and dough in the smell as the beer warms. Medium bodied. Good one to split a few ways.

It's fresh and almost whiney. You could taste the fruitiness but it still tastes like a beer. It hits fresh and has a aftertaste that is like a wave ...it comes and then it leaves. Smooth...Overall I recommend to get this beer again. The buzz is really fun. Just enough for a good time. Wouldn't drink this too fast since it did give me a buzz. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Labeled tripel ale on bottle, NYC Mia's midtown. Pours hazy light golden. Little nice head that stays. Citrus aroma, yeast, belgianesque. Really refreshing scent. First sip refreshing, tasty, not overly powerful. Clean palate but taste buds awakened. Crazy drinkable for a 9%. Catches up to you...it's a creeper...well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lightly hazy golden with a white head. Lightly funky underneath good zesty notes, light spice, some citrus, apricot. Whew, this is tasty.

12oz bottle. Pours mostly clear gold with a rather thin white head. Nice nose of cereal, spice, lightly funky fruit. Flavors are similar with banana and grain. Smooth mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Lingering finish. Very nice.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-21-17. “07/07/16,” presumably a bottled on date. Labeled as “Allagash Tripel Ale.” Pours an effervescent, medium to dark gold with a moderate amount of thin, short-lasting beige head. The shade and effervescence of the liquid is good, but the head is subpar in the initial pour. Final pour is hazier, darker, and duller, but the head is larger, creamier, more substantial, and longer lasting, and I bump the appearance to a 4. Pleasant, juicy, honeyed aroma. Scents of apple juice and Chardonnay. Buttery smell, not in a diacetyl way, but in an oaked white wine way. Quite sweet flavor with a dry finish. Honey and generic light-colored fruit juice. Melon and bitter orange peel. A touch of dust. Not sickly sweet but juicy-sweet in taste, but sweeter than I would prefer nonetheless. Hits the mark for a tripel, although it doesn’t seem to be particularly complex for the style, and it’s on the dull side. Medium to full body. A bit frothy and smooth but mostly forgettable (but not bad) palate effects. Easy to drink. Pleasant beer, well-made, doesn’t stray far from the Belgian model, but it does little for me.
