Bottle. Pours a deep, lively cheddar orange and a healthy white head. Nose is barn-musted fruitbread and sweet biscuit with light cheddar bits. Flavor is sweetened black pepper, light fruit, biscuit, and musty white cheddar. Lingering mouthfeel. Not bad, but to dry for my taste.

Copper in color. Head is a thick and foamy that does not disappear. The side of the glass is coated with head. Beautiful. The aroma consist of pine trees. There is a slight grapefruit aroma. Rhubarb taste. Salty. There is definitely citrus taste. Somewhat of a creamy texture with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied beer with average carbonation. For a sam adams very good.

750 ml. cool barrel bottle- Pours hazy golden with a beautiful fluffy white three finger head that slowly reduces, but never goes away. Aroma is very floral, hops, yeasty, moderately fruity. Taste is creamy, followed by a mild alcoholic burn, floral and fruity. Body is medium and carbonation is high. I really liked this, comparable with the best authentic Tripel’s of Belgium.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellow-gold with a big, lasting, cream colored head. Aroma of pineapple, bread, spice, banana, and flowers. Taste is fruity and yeasty; a little sweet and slightly bitter; actually the worst element of this beer. Medium bodied and a little dry with a slight sting of alcohol. Decent tripel for sure, though I wish I was getting more barrel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is dominated by fruits, cloves and strong pineapple notes. Shiny copper in color with a massive white foam top. Well carbonated with flavors of hops, herb, butter, massive citrus and some spices. Nice complexity with a great balance and a big boozey finish. Overall, very well done and full-flavored with a pleasant herby hop. Strong spice and alcohol on the finish. I’d give this an A rating.
