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.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Bronze in color with 2" of moussy white head. Aroma of pear esters with light sulfur, and a gingery spice. Taste is of a rich bready character with powerful alcoholic apple wine qualities and a bit of vanilla in butter. $7·5/750

Pours a slight hazy amber with two fingers of lasting head. Aroma is full of tropical fruit notes such as peaches, pineapple, bananas, and a slight sour aroma as well. You pick up less fruit and more floral notes on the palate. Very resinous mouth feel that almost seems to stick to the mouth. Yeast flavors are prominent with an almost caramel note that is detected. Flavors are difficult to extract as it all blends extremely well. Very interesting and good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delicious beer! Banana/apricot/citrus nose, and hits on every expectation I have of Belgian style beers.

In my "fruitless" quest for the ultimate tripel, got this at a Rouse’s in Houma, LA. I remember asking the owner at de Bierkoning in Amsterdam what tripel might be good, and he shrugged disdainfully and said, "everybody makes a triple nowadays." This has zesty lemony attack and peachy/mango/apricot fruit; it has a nice kick with its 10%. The texture is rich & frothy as blonde beers go, and although the overall balance approaches sweet, a touch of tart and bitter round it out great. This beer makes it worthwhile to keep questing, and I would happily get it again.

Above average triple , nice aroma and taste. Appearance and plate are below par. I’d put this as equal to Leffe.

rejtable (1223) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Like it. Pours clear orange with an intial foamy head that leaves a slight covering. Some sticky lacing, especially when glass is tipped. Nose is flowery with some spice, almost like nutmeg. Notes of pineapple, maybe some peach, orange peel, yeast, a bit of a hop bite and some spicyness as well. Hits all the rights spots for me. Taste is light/medium sweet and light/medium bitter. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Fullish somewhat sticky body and a biting, acidic finish.

Nice coriander and herbs. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Nice Belgian yeast and the oak is just subtle enough. Saaz is very subtle, hard to detect. Finishes a little sweet. Nice integration here. Well hidden alcohol. Bottle from lcbo.

robgibbens (405) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Amber gold color with a nice white and frothy head. The aroma is fruity; citrusy, but I can’t place. Taste is slightly bitter after an initial sweetness up front. It definitely tastes like a tripel. I do not detect any oak, however. Finishes clean.

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark gold with a big white head. Very sweet, fruity, then yeasty aroma. Yeasty bitterness, cookie dough undertones, medium body, unpleasing alcoholic finish.
