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.

unclemattie (4331) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Unique bottle. Corked and caged. 750mL, BRC. Pours orange, golden color. Thick foam, of big off-white bubbles. Aroma of tropic fruit for sure, loads of pineapple. Herbal nose with a touch of vanilla\oak character. All this just from the cork! Aroma in the glass is floral and has honey and golden raisin. Creamy body, heavy. Tastes of raisin puree, tropical fruit, some spice, lime leaves, peach & pear, and a touch of vanilla and oak. The thickness of the beer is most captivating. Overall, WOW, and worth every penny.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle from LCBO. Pale golden pour with a tght whote head. Fairly high carbonation. The aroma has a very light spicy aroma along with lots of light peppery spice. The barrel adds a distinct toasted butterscotch note along with a little bit of cotton candy. Quite Duvel-esque yeast character along with a fairly pronounced spicy hop character as well. Herbal and zesty hops along with a very dry lingering minerally bitterness on the finish. There is a light bit of cotton candy on the back of the palate. There is a fairly lovely freshness along with a nice lingering fruitiness. Minerally finish and a very lean body - this is damn tasty stuff.

Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is amazing - fruity tropical hop aroma with a bit of kiwi, peach, pear, papaya, mint and a bit of soft herbal spice. Fresh and fruity with notes of Brettanomyces and a bit of clean pale malt. Has a bit of peppery character along with a touch of lingering sweetness. Bright and fruity.

JohnnyMummbles (151) - Pitman, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Poured a hazy orange with a small head that laces the glass. Aroma is of yeast, pear, green apple and peach. Flavor is very good and consistent with a good triple. Strong beer without the high alcohol taste.

TheJester (2055) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
Beautiful bottle. Hazy orange with a nice (short-lived) white head. Fairly fruity aroma - peach, pear - with a little bread from the yeast. Taste is fairly standard, and, while solid, lacks any remarkable characteristics. Decent body. Carbonation about right. I probably couldn’t have guessed that this spent any time in a barrel. Good, but not at the price.

great golden pour, with frothy white head. loads of tropical fruits, some sharp yeasty esters, and some subtle spice. perfect carbonation, good mouthfeel. fruity finish, more yest, some minerals. light to medium bitterness, and a tad sweet. very refreshing, and crisp with a pleasant dryness.

pineypower (2662) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Pours out a clear, golden color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is of lots of subtle spices, light yeast, sweetness and some vanilla notes. Taste is sugary spices, yeast, cinnamon, allspice, lingering tropical fruits, oak, vanilla and a light bitterness in there also. Solid effort by SA.

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 (10123) - 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
