Allagash Brewing Company Tripel Reserve Belgian Style Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Allagash Brewing Company Tripel Reserve Belgian Style Ale.
From the Allagash Brewing Company website: “This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. The Tripel has a remarkably long and smooth finish.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Batch # 194 pours a cloudy golden color with a big white head and very nice lacing.
Aroma: Candi sugar, Belgian yeast, banana, clove, spice, honey, fruity and floral.
Taste: Lightly fruity, candi sugar and malty sweetness, Belgian yeast, clove, honey, citrus/grapefruit hop bitterness, a bit herbal and floral with just the slightest hint of alcohol.
Overall: Complex and amazing, Allagash Brewing Company Tripel Reserve Belgian Style Ale is exceptional. At 9% ABV this highly drinkable offering from Allagash Brewing Company is a must try for fans of the style. I highly recommend this one!
