pours a pale darker golden with a huge white head. This beer is full of flavors, there are tropical fruit flavors and sour fruit also, there is some floral tastes and it is slightly tart. This beer ends up with a bit of bitterness and some pepper.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is yeast and pepper. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and honey with light dry finish. A very good Tripel from Sam Adams.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of frothy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent golden brown colored body. The funky aroma was citrus malty and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of bubbly citrus mild funk and malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice golden color with a frothy pillowy head. May have been the glass but mine kept rising above the rim for a few minutes after pouring. Smells of pear, apricot, cherries, orange peel. Very fruity taste. Notes of pear, citrus fruit, apricot and cherries. Very good triple. This is one of my favorite styles and Sam Adams does it justice......

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden orange, big spongy white head. Aroma is very tropical, with loads of pineapple, tangerine, and other citrus fruits. Hints of black pepper, as well. Taste is fruity, tropical, with more pineapple and citrus. Peppery, hoppy finish. Good stuff...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. Burnt orange-golden with an inch of meringue that settles down to a creamy small disc. Nose is earthy-spiced mango, vanilla, white grape must, honeycomb, light funk, and a hint of oak and banana. Taste is a melange of pears poached in earthy mead and a pinch of nutmeg, baked bread, tart white grape, banana, clove, vanilla and a touch of peppery citrus zest. The oak is faint at first but develops into a light woody note in the long finish after 6-8 oz. Light-medium body is suitably dry for the style, with high carbonation (the only thing I don’t like about this one, although I know it’s also a style characteristic), and goes down way too easy for 10%, with just the right touch of abv warmth. Truly a Tripel to educate the New World masses; it’s just $8.99 even in the sin-and-sales-tax-only state of Tennessee.
