3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Splt 4-ways with the family.
Appearance: Bright dark golden with a medium easy to revive off-white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Fruity notes, followed by some spiciness, biscuity malt, alcohol and hints of candi sugar.
Taste: Quite fruity with moderate spiciness, light sweetness, biscuity malt, alcohol, candi sugar. Belgian influence is quite noticeable here.
Palate: Medium body. Soft pricky carbonation. Warming and spicy finish.
Overall: Well executed Tripel. A bit strong on alcohol (not necessarily the abv, but the alcohol feeling), but balance isn’t bad. Quite fruity. Good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle 750ml, corked
Aroma: spicy hops, some citrus, little fruity
Appearance: Golden, hazy, white head
Taste: A little sweet
Palate: Light body, lively carbonation, dry finish
Overall: I’m pretty surprised that I enjoy this Tripel this much. It reminds me of a nice Belgian Tripel. Not a spice bomb. Has nice subtle spice and fruitiness. Great dry finish. Much better than I expected. I don’t drink much from Sam Adams, bought this as a 3-pack special on sale. I’d definitely buy more if they came in regular 750ml, 4 or 6 packs.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden color. Light hops, malt and fruit on the nose. Solid, medium to heavy mouthfeel. A touch earthy, but still a very fine trippel. Would buy again.

A little fruity but full flavor. Very good beer. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is. Another strong Sam Adams

Bottle. Pours light amber with large spongy off-white head, vanilla and spices in aroma, fizzy, slightly sweet vanilla flavored beer with medium finish. Very nice triple; the high alcohol content is not noticeable at all.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Samuel Adams New World is not too bad but not a standout either. NIce deep golden color with a foamy head. Nose is definitely tropical fruit. Taste is the same with mild spice and a boozy finish. New World is a decent quaff but definitely a sipper.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish pour, light off white head. Smells of pear and jelly beans, tastes like soft candied fruit and spiced cake. Dry and bitter finish with a lot of alcohol. It’s a style thing but I don’t care for the Belgian flavor profile at all. i would not drink this again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery. Once you pour it, fantastic aromas of spice, herbs, wild honey, caramelly herbs meet and greet the nose. It pours beautifully revealing a balanced carbonation and a thick, frothy head. Taste is as full as one could hope for; tropical fruits, citra, grass, tobacco, earthy and even licorice. A fantastic beer to sip and savour every mouthfull.
