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.

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.

750 ml. bottle #3009?? Pours a exuberant tiny bubbled white head which dissipates gradually, with attractive lacing, over a golden (SRM 6) body redolent with particles....nose is vanilla, clove, banana.....taste is banana/bubblegum, heavy clove, lemon, ending slightly hot.....mouth feel is light, carbonation adds a champagne like quality. This is a nice Triple. It, for the style, is a bit simplistic in its nose and taste profile, but I think it is a nice attempt for a brewery expanding its range. Do not taste this when it is too cold. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

Bottled@The Chriso Gaylord tasting. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some slight notes of grass and mild herbal notes as well. Flavour is much the same with the fruityness being quite pleasant. Wellbalanced brew, that hides the alcohol rather well.

pinto1993 (45) - Revere, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2010
750ml corked & caged bottle poured into an 8oz tulip glass. Pours to a big, foamy, two finger head that dissipates slowly. Appearance is a light golden color. Smell is of spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is very spicy up front with hints of tropical fruit and warm alcohol (10% abv) on the back end. Lacks complexity and flavor you would expect from a barrel aged beer. There is no taste of the oak barrel it was aged in which is real disappointing. It does not come off as overly strong and its mouthfeel is crisp and tingly from high carbonation. Not a bad offering from Sam Adams but you would be much better served going with a Unibroue beer or any of the Trappist beers.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris Os Night of the Gaylords.
Yellow gold with a thin white film topping. Sweet, sugary and rather yeasty. Estery and spicy and more akin to a Belgian wit than a tripel. Not particularly entertaining.

harrisoni (13627) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Gold haze, rocky lasting beige head. Belgian yeast, esters, more wit beer than a tripel. Decent, some syrupy sweetness, but a half decent stab at a tripel. I liked it more than most.

swoopjones (5789) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle @ GLBN Belgian Tasting. Pale gold pour. Aromas of juicy fruit gum, some honey & sweet maltiness. Taste comes offf with nice tripel fruitness, belgian yeastiness, some spice & then just drops offf with a light peppery finish. Witha more complete finish this would have been a real nice tripel. Most flavor components were there but poor finish. Still ike the attempt. Blind tasting @ Sterling Tavern, Buffalo

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 11, 2010
From DC Local tasting. Soon to be a favorite of tastybeer and his undeveloped palate. Cloudy yellow with a poofy white top. No lace. Some yeast and spice in the aroma. Taste is spicy, some Saaz bite, pretty boozy. Not bad.

Hazy golden pour white foamy head banana and clove aroma taste of fruits, banana and clove and ends with a nice spicy finish ... not much of an oak taste here .... its mellow and subtle tasting but nothing spectacular
