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.

Poured into my brand new Kasteel goblet. 5.0 A: Nearly clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy hybrid white head. Great retention and lots of lacing. 4.5 S: Earthy and spicy, this is a great smelling brew. The most prominent aroma is probably yeastiness with peppery spiciness and a touch of clove as well. Hops add a subtle dirty earthiness. Peachy fruitiness is also there, but not so much tropical fruit as suggested by the label. Other than the aromas mentioned, this beer is very clean. Oak is much lighter than I would have expected. 4.5 T: Lots and lots of pepper spiciness with some clove in there too. Some fruitiness remains, but much drier than the nose would suggest. Instead, there’s a lot more earthiness with some hay and barnyard funkiness. Don’t get me wrong, this is a tripel, but it does have some saison-like characteristics. Oak comes through more in the taste. Pretty damn good. 4.0 M: Light body. Lots, if not too much, spritzy carbonation. Good creaminess. Goes down easy for the amount of carbonation. 4.5 D: This is easily my favorite SA brew. Until now, just about everything has left me unimpressed. Everytime I find my self pulling a cork from a bottle of beer, I wonder if the beer inside is worthy of such a fancy presentation. This one is. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-01-2010 04:11:03

Cold winter’s Friday night. Split with Marci- last of the Barrel Room bottles from the brewhouse. Cork comes out with a loud pop and pours a huge head. Color is sunset gold and orange with a lot of bubbles floating to the top. Banana / weiss beer aroma. Flavor is subtle oak, alcohold front and center, alongside peppery spice. Finish is surprisingly thin with more oak notes as well as grass and corn. More alcohol lingers too. Boozier and thinner than I expected...Just ok...

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle @ Utah Holiday Tasting: Pours a nice golden color with a big head. The nose is hoppy and snappy with a crisp up front citrus note and a spicy flavor. Light in yeast with a clean dry finish and moderate alcohol in the tail. Good.

750 ml bottle brought back from Sam Adams to St. Louis by a buddy of mine who works for them. Thanks again, John. Pours a clear, bright gold color with a thick eggshell white head. Aroma of sweet malts, candi sugar, tons of tropical fruits (mango, banana, etc.), and a little herbal, peppery spice. Flavor of tropical fruits, sweet malts, honey, herbal spices, and corn syrup. Pretty sweet but I liked it for the most part. Medium-bodied, with a sticky mouthfeel and mild carbonation.

damzz (268) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Pours a a thick white head that slowly dissipates with sheet lacing. The aroma is floral. The appearance is amber and cloudy. The taste is light sweetness and lightly bitter. The palate has a medium body with a thin feel wiith soft carbonation followed by an astringent aftertaste. Enjoyed in a crystal rimless wine glass on Boxing Day.

nwiseman (192) - West Lafayette, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Thank you Jordan! Golden brown color with a white fluffy head. Some cherry and other bright fruit. Some slightly spicey notes like clove and nutmeg, which are dominated by apple and other light fruits. Medium body and foamy texture. Very tasty but not ideal. Still I’m very thankful.

Bottle shared by someone at the Holiday tasting, Dave perhaps. Pours a bright golden hue with a large foamy white head. A full malty nose with loads of banana. A spicy malty driven flavor, some Saaz, banana esters, fruity. Enjoyable.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Pours golden with thick, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has pear, apple, a crisp hop character and the distinct scent of sap. The flavor is more like a golden ale than a true triple. Plenty of pepper and spice with very little fruit. Pallatte is a thick and a bit oily. No alcohol presence. Overall a nice beer. Not particularly sweet but that’s what makes it interesting.

On tap at O’Brien’s. Orange amber in the glass with thick eggshell head. Nose is fruity yeast and alclhol. Taste is huge. Big round mouthfull of fruit and alcohol. Wow. Some spiciness hidden back there. Big flavor.

Pours a clear straw yellow color with a thin soapy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spice and citrus. Crisp and dry with a spicy Belgian yeast flavor with a touch of sweetness from the fruit. Lots of warming from the alcohol.
