Batch # 32 750ml bottle - Nice pale gold yellow color, got a tall white head of fluffy smooth stryrofoam that falls apart in sections leaving huge clumbs and ledges of foamy stringy lace. Smell is lots of bright citrus, orange, lemon, and lime, dulled a bit with some nice yeast and spicyness. Taste is subtle and complex in layers with a nice flow of citrusy lemon, orange, a bit of banana, nice leveled yeast, some grainyness squeezed in as well and lightly dancing spicyness of citrus rinds and black pepper with a good sweet malt balance the whole way through. Finishes with a light hop hold and alcohol warming. Full body, pretty rich, bold, creamy even, and a nice hold of bittering fruitness and spice. Nice complexity to this triple and is quite a nice offering in the style.

Batch #94

Allagash Tripel Reserve a hazy golden that turns straw when held to the light. Tiny carbonation bubbles rise quickly to the thin wispy white cap that sits up top. Really not much in the looks department.

The aroma makes up for the lack of appearence. Sweet rip peaches and tangerines start things off. Biscuity malts are faint and in the background. Hint's of candi sugar come forward. There's a zesty sweet snap in there from the tangerines.

Flavor is similiar to the aroma with ripe juicy fruits coming from every direction. Sweet tangerine zestiness up front with a mild dusty yeastiness. Candi sugar and mild alcohol come through mid palate but are quickly overtaken by juicy peaches on the finish. Very nicely done.

Lively mouthfeel with prickly carbonation and a zestiness that awakens the tastebuds. Each sip leaves me wanting another.

Easy drinker for the abv involved. Refreshing and tasty.

A solid offering from Allagash that has that X factor I can't put my finger on but keep wanting more. Very nicely done.
