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.

Hazy orange pour, with a big, bubbly head. Ton of fruitiness and spice in the nose. Belgian yeast is definitely prevalent and it has a decent amount of that buttery feeling in the mouthfeel. Definite alcohol warmth on the belly. Nothing really standout about this, but it is drinkable.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Served in a Belgian Snifter. Pale and hazy orange-amber in color, with a semi-durable head. Decent lacing. Aroma: excellent fruity and bready mix. Complex and lightly spicy. Flavor: various soft and tropical fruits and a multitude of spice notes. Excellent aftertaste brings out more grain flavor and adds a subtle herbal note. Feel: nice lively body but a bit too hot (not surprising given 10% ABV) despite some aging. O: a strong tripel that is flavorful and complex.

Deep bronze. Aroma of bubblegum and tropical fruit. Taste - sweet sugary, spicy malt. More bubblegum, tropical fruit along with banana and clove. Rich and cloyingly sweet. I like the flavor but one pint is enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep golden amber that would make the golden statues of King Midas weep. A very frothy white head develops after pouring. Has the aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast, and some orange zest. Has a good amount of flavor consisting much of yeast, then some orange, citrus, and other notes. Not far from the taste of your typical Belgian style abbey but this one has a sort of metallic taste at the end that sets it behind the others that I have had, but pretty good none the less.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours to a glowing deep orange body with a super frothy rocky white head and lacing. The aroma is pineapple and yeast. The flavor is sweet and yeasty with pineapple and papaya. The palate is sweet and delicious. Medium full body.

Pours a hazy deep gold with a huge rocky white head. Sweet candy-like aroma. Spicy fruit flavors, orange, candy, pepper, and lemon notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and warming. The high level of carbonation leads to a dry finish. An impressive tripel that is complex and full of flavor.

Bulk_Carrier (2247) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 24, 2014
The appearance has a hazy golden colored body that yields a fairly large head for a tripel, solid fast rising carbonation is seen coming to the surface to keep the head alive. Some nice concave lacing clings to the sides of the chalice. After letting it warm a bit to the suggested temperature, the earthy tones of coriander, wheat, clove and grass with some nice sweet lightness of pear make their presence in the smell. The obvious Belgian yeast is there as well. The taste has sweet undertones of the pear to combine nicely with the previously mentioned earthy tones. A slight peppery taste comes out perhaps due to the coriander. The palate sits about a medium on the body with a ton of harshness on the tongue, perhaps to be expected due to the carbonation seen rising. Though a high ABV, the alcohol wasn’t smelled or tasted throughout the beer. I would say this isn’t exactly very drinkable. Overall, well, I believe my palate is wrecked after this bad boy. Though I’m not a super big fan of tripels, I would say this is pretty good. I’m not sure if this can be found on tap anywhere, but I’m pretty sure that’s what I would pursue to have this again.

3 Pack from the LCBO with Samuel Adams (Barrel Room Collection) New World Tripel Samuel Adams (Barrel Room Collection) Tetravis and the Samuel Adams (Barrel Room Collection) Thirteenth Hour Stout I was expecting more from these for the $40 price for the 3 but having said that I probably had too many beers the day i sampled these:) And they were all pretty descent beers
