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.

Yeast, banana, vanilla, alcohol aroma. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Cloudy slightly orangish gold with a thick foamy white head that lingers and leaves lots of lacing. Bread, malt, fruity sweet, slightly boozy. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish. All in all a very nice Tripel.

This is a great beer overall but an amazing tripel. It has a orange and white head and goes down smoothly.

Bottle shared somewhere in the middle of Florida. Holy Triple!!! Very nice bubblegum and bananas, cloves melt into almost a dry champaign idea. Very nice.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Sample at Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged tasting. Clear golden color. Little off-white had. Little lace. Estery, zesty citrus - peel taste. Interesting, zesty light Belgian fruity funky taste, some good orange flavor. Unusual for a tripel. I like it. More belgian yeast here. Bigger body, dry finish. Light carbonation. Interesting tripel.

obxdude10 (2244) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2013
This is by far one of the best tripels I’ve tasted in a long time! This beer is extremely delicious! It pours a light golden color with a huge, soft white head. The head laces very nicely around the inside of the glass. The nose features some herbs, hops, bananas, bubble gum and yeast. This beer is full-bodied and thick! The flavors are very well-balanced, with sweet maltiness and lightly spicy hops. Some of the bubble gum, yeast and banana shows through toward the finish and in the aftertaste.

luttonm (4440) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Draft at The Pine Box, Seattle. Orange, foamy white head. clove, peppercorn. Rich American tripel style. Strong ale with "belgian" peppery yeast notes. Popcorn sweetness. Alright overall, but a bit of a mess.

hopdog (11004) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Poured a golden color with a white head. Aromas of yeast, spices, some grassiness, and lighter fruits. Tastes of yeast, spices, fruity, and some candi sugar. Overall alcohol content well hidden.

alexanderj (3511) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Cool bottle; poured an orange/caramel color with a big frothy head. Darker than expected. Aroma was boozy; yeast, banana, alcohol, fruit, earth, herbs, and perhaps a touch of oak. Flavor was pretty boozy; a bit funky; yeasty and herbal; some spice Fruitiness throughout. A good beer, but not really what I look for in a Tripel.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Pours a hazy orangey gold with a moderate white head with big bubbles. Aroma is pretty complex with notes of pepper, hay, champagne, slight bready malt, and slight wood. Flavors of earth, bread, slight white chocolate, champagne, hay, pepper, citrus, and a slight funk. It certainly does a lot in a sip! Finishes with little bitterness, but the flavors of damp earth, grass, pepper, citrus, and wood are all very pleasant. If there’s a brett or sour influence, it’s only VERY slight here, used sparingly like a spice. And despite the nice looking pour, the carbonation feels fake and uncreamy, making for a prickly mouthfeel. Good beer overall though, this series of beers doesn’t disappoint.

Deep gold, fluffy white head. Nose is yeasty soft fruit. Sweet and bitter both pull on the tongue. Middle is alcohol, caramel, bananas. Alcohol is predominate out the back. Seems to be missing something, but still interesting.
