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.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Aroma - the aroma is floral, yeasty, some curaçao spices, and grain Appearance - is a clean gold-orange, with a nice white head Taste - doesn’t measure up all that well vs other Tripels. It’s flavor is mostly yeasty with a grainy malty. There is also a little alcohol as well. Feel - It’s slightly sweet, somewhat yeasty all the way through. Not going to remember this drink. Nothing special here. c/o Doug F - Beer#8 @ The Craft Beer Social Club (PA Chap 1) Beer Social #1 - Beer Open (L’Ouverture Sociale de la Bière)

Metalchopz (2213) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Part of the Barrel Room Collection at the LCBO. Pours a golden-amber colour with lots of minuscule particles creating some mild haziness. The head is lightly beige with good retention and lots of sticky, thick lacing. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast and fresh spices of light grass, close to mint. Different types of fruits come out with time. Can smell the alcohol, but do not taste it. Yeasty taste with lots of fruits (oranges, tropical). Well-blended overall and decent for the style.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Clear golden and light orange coloured body with a copper and still orange glow, all with a three centimetre tall tan head - fairly nice. Aroma of flowers, yeast, grain, honeysuckle, curacao and a little corn. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong yeast flavour at first with a grain and malty backbone that shows strong, some alcohol warmth and a large perfumey and floral hop taste that mushrooms into a bit of a bitterness. Aftertaste shows plenty of yeast, a kick from alcohol and maltiness and a little touch of sweetness, although, fairly minimal. Overall, a decent tripel, but not great, nor very good from the brewery - I was fairly disappointed with this one - it was way too strong and overpoweringly bitter and alcoholic to be a tripel. I sampled this 75 cL bottle from a 3-pack sampler, purchased at Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City) for US$22/3pack on 02-January-2014 by my dad (thanks Dad!) sampled at home in Washington on 15-January-2014.

Gription79 (2238) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Poured from 750ml bottle. Brilliantly clear with huge bright white head. Three aroma its sweet malts blended with ripe fruits. The flavor is a bit spicy earthy, floral, ripe fruits. This is a tasty Belgian styled beer.

johnnnniee (2233) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle from Market Basket Pours a brilliantly clear deep golden color with a huge rocky bone white head that persists forever. Aromas of light pepper and spice with a bit of honey and light sugary malt to back it up. Wow thats sweeter than I thought it would be. Light sugar and tart pomme fruit with lots of spices to counter. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a lightly sweet bubbly carbonic acid bite in the mouthfeel. Decent brew, not really my kind of triple, but nice to try.

Ridiculously tight cork. Interesting fruitiness but lacks the complexity and distinct yeast notes of the best tripels.

Gethinbeer (2122) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Hazy copper colour with a thin white lace. Malt, fruit spice aroma. Malt flavour with kiwi fruit and fruit puch with a tangy finish.

Spab (2301) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
750 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Barrel Room Collection mix pack). Pours a lightly cloudy orange colour with average-sized, lasting white head. Aroma is sweetish tropical fruit, citrus, spice and perfume. Flavour is fairly sweet with juicy lemon, tropical fruits, clove and pepper. Medium-full body. Good one.

jdobbs (363) - New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Flavor profile is malty, sweet, fruity and spicy, floral and somewhat tropical in character, some peppery alcohol making its appearance towards the finish, which also features suggestions of clove, banana, melon and a tinge of hop bitterness. Palate is finely but actively carbonated with a moderately coating, heavy feel and a full body. Interesting stuff, certainly not a bad take on the style.

This is my first tripel style beer. The New World Tripel has a surprisingly smooth finish for the ABV. The beer is very aromatic with a malty taste and a citrus finish. This is a complex beer with an overall great flavor. After trying this tripel, I’ll definitely try others.
