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.

750 ml bottle brought back from Sam Adams to St. Louis by a buddy of mine who works for them. Thanks again, John. Pours a clear, bright gold color with a thick eggshell white head. Aroma of sweet malts, candi sugar, tons of tropical fruits (mango, banana, etc.), and a little herbal, peppery spice. Flavor of tropical fruits, sweet malts, honey, herbal spices, and corn syrup. Pretty sweet but I liked it for the most part. Medium-bodied, with a sticky mouthfeel and mild carbonation.

Pours a a thick white head that slowly dissipates with sheet lacing. The aroma is floral. The appearance is amber and cloudy. The taste is light sweetness and lightly bitter. The palate has a medium body with a thin feel wiith soft carbonation followed by an astringent aftertaste. Enjoyed in a crystal rimless wine glass on Boxing Day.

Thank you Jordan! Golden brown color with a white fluffy head. Some cherry and other bright fruit. Some slightly spicey notes like clove and nutmeg, which are dominated by apple and other light fruits. Medium body and foamy texture. Very tasty but not ideal. Still I’m very thankful.

Bottle shared by someone at the Holiday tasting, Dave perhaps. Pours a bright golden hue with a large foamy white head. A full malty nose with loads of banana. A spicy malty driven flavor, some Saaz, banana esters, fruity. Enjoyable.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Pours golden with thick, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has pear, apple, a crisp hop character and the distinct scent of sap. The flavor is more like a golden ale than a true triple. Plenty of pepper and spice with very little fruit. Pallatte is a thick and a bit oily. No alcohol presence. Overall a nice beer. Not particularly sweet but that’s what makes it interesting.

On tap at O’Brien’s. Orange amber in the glass with thick eggshell head. Nose is fruity yeast and alclhol. Taste is huge. Big round mouthfull of fruit and alcohol. Wow. Some spiciness hidden back there. Big flavor.

alobar (3024) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Pours a clear straw yellow color with a thin soapy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spice and citrus. Crisp and dry with a spicy Belgian yeast flavor with a touch of sweetness from the fruit. Lots of warming from the alcohol.

hopscotch (10015) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle… Mostly clear orange ale with a small, fluffy, white head. Good, small, tight, white retention. The bouquet is fruity and spicy – apricot, clove, banana, pear and a very light smoke phenol. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is sweet and fruity with comforting alcohol warmth. Finishes moderately sweet, lightly bitter and grassy. It’s not as bitter as it should be, but most tripels aren’t. Pretty well done. Not one of my favorite styles. Bottle courtesy of growler!

marcus (7323) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours hazy golden with a rich white head and a fruity yeasty aroma. There is a hearty carbonated caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish and an oaky taste left on the palate. Very spicy.

Bottle from Liquor Max. Pours hazy peach with a foamy orange/white head. Strong aromas of fruit and yeast/spice. Med body/vry foamy carb. Flavor is slightly sour/oak. Then lighter fruits and peppery/spiceiness. Finishes somewhat oaky tart.
