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.

Draught. Boulder Strong Fest. yellow with white head. Big banana and esters a lot going on. Flavor is coriander and tons of fruit and yeast and all very off-putting. BOO

Bottle into an Orval goblet. Pours with a lovely frothy head and a very pleasant golden color. Taste is quite spicy, peppery and fruity. Its a lively tripel with interesting complexity, but a little too spicy for me. Still, quite an interesting beer.

Wanted to try this fun special release. The beer is a cloudy golden yellow with a foamy head. The aroma was nice banana and coriander with some yeast. Taste is a silky light hop and spice as well. Pleasant texture and hides the ABV very well.

Poured a clear amber/orange with a large foamy off-white head. Very carbonated with some apple and yeast flavors. Finish is slightly sweet and smooth. Overall very good, but not a great example of the style.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle shared by jslot38 on 1/10/10: Pours a transparent bright golden with a small froth of spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of semi-sweet doughy Belgian malts with some light coriander spice and earthy floral hops. Starts with a hint of sweetness and some drier biscuity Belgian malts with an earthy drier hop bitterness before a warming bitter earthy finish. An ok tripel, but could use more sweetness.

Impressive tight-bubbled head that leaves extensive lace. Very cloudy with a orange-gold color--it glows in front of a bright light. Lots of wheat and wild grains in the aroma. Very little Belgian yeast aroma, surprisingly. Blindfolded, I would think Wit. Similar tastes to the smell, except for a notable alcohol presence. This is deceptively potent. Lots of carbonation with a moderate body--makes it seem thinner than it is truly is. The aftertaste is slightly sour with more of the distinctive wheat. This could be describe as an extreme Wit. It does not remind me of a Tripel, which is far more malty and sweet.

MadIndian (2384) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle Gift. Golden pour with aromas of bread and fruit. Taste left me a little empty. A hint of belgian yeast with a sweet malt and spice flavor but the finish dropped off kind of flat. I was hoping for a bit more. However, it was still good.
