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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

Poured a great big hazy golden head with lacing. Nice spice, cilantro, with fruit notes. Tastes like a combination of a real Belgian triple and a Hoegaarden Grand Cru, two of my favorites. Great beer.
