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.

Surprised at the low scores, itís good, and abbey triple isnít usually my thing. Maybe itís nothing like a proper abbey triple is suppose to be and thatís why I donít mind it. Pours a golden yellow with a foamy short lived head that fizzes down to a thin sitcky layer. Aroma is mainly tropical fruits and yeast. The flavour is sweet, candy sugars, fruity, alcohol, ends on a yeasty note. Itís a pretty straight forward beer, but not in a bad way. Still not sold on the abbey triple department, probably still wonít be buying this again.

Pours a thick, white, three fingered head, fades to a thin layer (should be poured slowly) and leaves some lace. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Color is clear amber. Light oak and fruit nose. Flavor is slight sweet fruit and oak, the higher ABV is hidden. Pricey at $11.95 for a 750ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

Bottle pours hazy yellow-orange with a thin white head. Aroma shows banana, toast, clove, oak, and honey. Flavor shows the same with some additional tropical fruit tones (pineapple, mango). Mouthfeel felt somewhat astringent and distracting. Overall pretty solid, and glad to see them branching out.

The beer poured a hazy yellow color with a decent sized white head. The aroma was of banana with light cloves and a hint of alcohol. The clove in the flavor is fairly strong. There was nice warmth and light alcohol on the spiced finish. Medium bodied

Cloudy gold pour, big white head. Bananas, coriander, yeast, wheat, brown sugar, not much barrel aroma. Flavor is creamy, yeasty, sweet, bread, bananas, spices. Good stuff. Not getting much of the barrel, but a flavor.

Bottle Thanks to JohnGalt1. First off let me say this was one of the coolest bottles I have ever seen. Pours out a cloudy gold topped with a off white head. Aroma was of sweet sugar toast, spice, bananas, and some sour apples. Taste was more of the sweetness mostly of fruit and a little spice.

Unique looking 750ml bottle. Pours a rich looking gold color with a foamy white head that never completely recedes. Somewhat sweet aroma with whiffs of honey, as well as tropical fruits. Moderate to light palate with lively carbonation. Nice light honey flavor with a hint of vanilla bean. Also mixed fruit flavors. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Alcohol is there, but not boozy. Crisp, dry finish.

750 mL bottle (thanks to Pawola22). This one had its moments, but ultimately didnít quite do it for me. Aroma of cookies, caramel malts, soapy banana, and light zesty spices. No real barrel aged notes at least in the aroma. Pour wasnít bad. A nice creamy white head that mostly dissipates, semi-translucent body, and gold orange in color. The mouthfeel is where most of the problems came for me. There was too much of a medicinal bite to it here, though also semi-crisp in the beginning, becoming more tart through the finish. Again, like the aroma, some caramel cookies, then some bubblegum, banana, mixed fruits, light wood, light herb, and light zest. Not a bad effort overall, as there were some good aspects to this one.

750ml bottle picked up at the brewery. Pours a clear golden colored body with a few tiny bits of particulate floating around. Finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet malts with some subtle complexities. A light hop spicing, some tropical fruit, Belgian yeast esters, and grass. Flavor is a bit better. Medium sweet malts, apricots and tropical fruits, Belgian yeast esters, a light grass, some dry hop spice, and florals. Finishes dry, crisp, and somewhat spicy with a light alcohol warmth. Leaves a short to medium length aftertaste following a lighter body and somewhat lively carbonation. Overall, an okay tripel. Nothing to write home about, but easy drinking and well crafted.

750ml bottle from the brewery in Boston. Phenomenal appearance - golden with just a little haze and a large, lacey, and well-retained white head. Aroma is grainy and a little sweet with tropical fruit and floral notes and yeast. Flavor is very sweet and fruity. Mango and pineapple, sweet pale malt, a little oak, and floral hops. Only slightly Belgian. Medium-bodied and fairly dry but still sweet with a good carbonation level. Decent overall, but not too impressive to a barrel-aged tripel.
