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.

bottle. clear orange under a large, foamy white head. nose is funky with pear and pepper. lighter notes of saaz and marshmallow. the kosmic mother funk is loud is this one and more fitting than the stout. flavors are softly sweet with pear and peach blended with limey saaz and the big funky presence. light to medium body with a perfect amount of carbo(on the lighter side for this style). love the lime and funk blend!

Bov (9969) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2011
from Mondial de la Bière, Strasbourg - hazy blond beer under a persistent and very creamy foam; very spicy and yeasty aroma with fair notes of matured fruits and hints of wood; full-bodied and with some tart refreshing acidity; creamy palate and with a subtle carbonation, quite sweet; lot of residual sugars, yeasty and long fruity aftertaste; the woody tones appear stronger in the finish

dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pours a pale orange with a nice fluffy white head. Lots of fruit in the aroma with, with some wood and earthy accents. Flavor of apricots, spices, malt, and some caramel. Finishes with a little yeasty, with a mild bitterness, and some fruit lingering

tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Orange golden. A tiny bit sour, but citrusy, malty, thin and astringent. Better than Sam Adams lager, but not very good for a supposed special brew.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Transparent rich gold, puffy white head, heavy lace. Heavy honey, grain, cardboard, bit green and plant like. Flavor is dirty, heavy bubblegum esters, high carbonation, honey. Too sticky, carbonation higher, fruit not emerging, just sweetness and green notes.

jrallen34 (3485) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2011
bottle... dark gold with a bit of orange, medium clarity, off white head, thin cap is left, no lace... sweet very generic aroma that I’m not a fan of, lots of honey, tropical fruits, passion fruit and mango, sweet yeast, a bit of oak, ok, not on of the style, not digging it... the taste is off for the style and from the aroma, way over carbonated giving a terrible palate, big yeast finish and through out, only a bit of oak and flowers besides the yeast... not very good

TURDFERGUSON (4002) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle probably courtesy of butters, but we’re not aure, ’cause he left. Orange, slighltly hazy, small white lace. Nose is more saaz and hoppy than any kind of spice. Light brett, ryan doesn’t say so, but some other stuff too.

Butters (3898) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Sampled at the DC gathering at GT’s place. Clear golden pour with good white head. This was actually good example of style. Clean and very crisp and efferevescent. Belgian yeast, spices. Nicely done.

FOBAB 2011 (bottle). Outstanding sweet/dry balance. Complex fruit and spice notes. One of the most complex beers I had at the festival and probably one of the best.
