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.

Pours rusty-gold with a big, somewhat foamy white head. Nose is very fruity and sweet with only the faintest hints of herb and yeast. Bourbon barrel comes out a bit in the flavor and the finish is quite herbal. Alcohol is quite present but isn’t overly boozy. It’s a decent tripel but nothing exceptional....less oak and more coriander would do it good.

The aroma let me down a bit. I was expecting more but got just a hint of fruit and not much else. The beer looks great, golden with a white lacing head. The flavor has the Belgian spice, fruit, a nice hop presence. The beer is nicely carbonated and nicely balanced. Long lasting burn and after taste.

zootfinster (219) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2011
A very disappointing beer. Lacks body. Very little malt taste. Too carbonated. I had hoped that Sam Adams would come up with a good beer but it is very lacking

onceblind (7001) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Hazy, almost see-through gold, with a good white head. Light tropic fruit and funk aroma; mango, orange, papaya. Taste was slightly spicy and fruity with a dry finish, bringing back all that tropical fruit from the nose...orange peel in there too. Pleasant, soft, yet sicy and assertive. Pretty good!
