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.

A nice slightly cloudy golden amber hue with a white head that had great retention and nice lacing. Aroma had nice bread malts, some banana and a spice note. Flavor had a good malt profile. Fruit and spice notes were somewhat unbalanced but not to the point of being bad. Definitely some yeast and alcohol flavors in the finish. Carbonation was adequate.

BritAlesRule (215) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours a medium to dark gold color. Bubbly head. A somewhat distant sweet malt and fruit character. Some medicinal yeast and hop way in the background. Taste is nice enough with a bit of fruit juice up front on a nicely balanced tongue. Chase is mostly yeasty and some light fruit. Alcohol hinted at but nicely done for 10%.

Various ideas that didn’t all hang together. Not so drinkable. Nice looking. Sweet, spicy taste and sweet aroma. It’s the style, but it doesn’t quite rise to the occasion of those produced in Belgium

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Shared a rare corked bottle into tulip glasses; thanks John! Poured a beautiful, golden amber color with some chill haze and huge off-white head, excellent retention with Belgian lace and alcoholic legs. Profoundly complex aromas of mild grains, floral, herbal and citrusy hops, pepper and clove from the yeast, tropical fruit essences, soft alcohol vapors. Flavors of bread, mellow pilsner malt, more mango, mellon, citrus, pepper and clove. Mildly sweet, delicately balanced bitterness from hops and unfamiliar fermentation phenols. Became even more and more interesting as it warmed. Light-medium body, remarkable considering the 10% alcohol. Mouthfeel was effervescent, clean, smooth and creamy, but with a refreshing, crisp, almost dry finish. Strong and sophisticated, dangerously delicious. Possessed all the traits of the exquisite Trappist style plus additional "New World" attributes, exactly as stated on the label. Great stuff.

Bottle - pours hazy gold with a white head. Spices in the aroma. Very sweet flavor, spices, could tell from how sweet it was it had the high ABV. Little boozy.

I had been wanting to try this one for some time and fortunately someone brought this one to the Christmas 3R6P gathering. +++Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with a small white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy candied golden fruits. The flavor was tangy sweet bread, sugar and a blend of candied peach, pear and apricot. The finish was long and tangy with sugar and mixed golden fruits lingering. Full bodied, a bit chalky and somewhat boozy. A bit flawed but nice.

beerbill (3576) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Corked bottle. Pours a clear gold with a large off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left patchy lace. A slow pour is required to keep the head manageable. Pleasant aroma that has mild Belgian yeast spice, a bit of candi sugar, and some malt. The flavor is malt with some fruit and spice contributed by the Belgian yeast followed by some moderate hops bitterness. Some candi sugar sweetness present throughout in the flavor. Bright on the palate. While tripels are not my favorite style, I found this one to be quite enjoyable.
