COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams New World Tripel: Pale gold in color, this ale is big, flavorful and complex. A special Belgian yeast strain adds tropical fruit and spice notes to the crisp dry ale, while Saaz hops add a subtle herbal note.

Aroma: malty and fruity with yeasty notes: Flavor: yeasty and peppery with carmel, fruit, pepper, and earthy notes. Appearance: Obnoxious, read awesome in this case, because the hazy golden liquid is topped with a stay-through-the-drink white, foamy head. Palate: lively, fizzy, carbonated heavily. The neck tag was almost accurate minus the above corrections. Actually the above rating is a completely objective opinion in lieu of the neck tag. its up to you to decide if you want to drink this or not. i would. but then again, i never have before, so go figure.

Overall delicious tripel by Sam. Fruity, yeasty, bready aromas. Frothy head like Duvel when poured properly. Alcohol is well hidden, taste of citrus, bread, yeast. I think this might even pass as a domestic tripel if tasted by a Belgian...

This pours a golden yellow color with a fluffy off-white head. The scent is strong with yeast, tropical fruit, banana, and bready tones. There is a really decent amount of spice taste that mixes well with fruit. Overall this is sweet tasting, full bodied beer that really delivers a quality taste while filling you up. Also leaves behind great lacing.

On Tap. Pours a crisp clear cold with only a slight head. Aroma is fruity with banana notes. Tast is more of the same with some spice notes apparent as well. The higher ABV is not really detected. Nice offering from Sam Adams.

Poured from bottle, cool looking bottle by the way, pours a pretty clear golden with a thin white head and nice lacing, aroma has a nice amount of spice and yeast with a hint of hops as well, the flavor has some nice oak touches on the front end with some fruit in the finish, nice mouthfeel in the finish, the abv is well hidden, pretty impressed with this.

I went to the store to buy/try Chimay Trappist beer - Didn’t have it so I bought this... Not too bad.... I give it the highest marks except for price - But I do understand , it does cost a LOT more to make !

Not a huge fan of Trippels but this one had me going. Good alcohol content and a big amount of hops.

TheEpeeist (3400) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Cool, unique 25.4 oz bottle; kind of looks like a barrel. Misty orange brown with a clingy white head. Nose is bubblegum, clove, vanilla and candied lemon peel. Oily medium body with a sting and a dull buzz, finishing with a dry clench. Taste is dried pineapple, grass, yeast and apricot. Not bad, a bit messy, but does avoid some of the perfume, cloying or plastic notes of many tripels.

The funky flavor is really dominate but it has major malt flavor with golden hay,fruit and savory herbs. It's an unique beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
