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.

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.

Woot! Poured by Jim Koch himself, well at least up until I got to the front of the line, but anyway... Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a white foamy head. Aroma was hops, yeast, grains. Flavor was mild hops, solid Belgian yeast notes. Alcohol comes through, but is relatively well masked for 10%.

DSG (9563) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 28, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Oren. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of spices, yeast and fruits. Flavor starts slightly sweetish with fruits, some wood, a bit of sugar and alcohol, and finishes drier, spicy and alcoholic. Medium-bodied. So-so. Lacks refinement.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Appearance: cloudy yellow. Leaves a nice thing film of freshly baked bready whites. Swirls white and puffy.
Nose: very yeasty and spicy with cumin and ginger powder standing out predominantly. Citric pith with tangerine and tangelo. Coconut shavings. Vanilla extract. Flambéed bananas, bananas foster.
Palate: bananas. Doughy, yeasty and a nice dry spiced finish. Coconut shavings and fresh cracked coconut milk. Bananas underneath the coconut milk. Rawness of tropical fruit skins cleanse and balance along with some peach and apricot skins. Doughy mouthfeel holds it all together.
Final Thoughts: finally and well worth the wait. Now I just got to somehow taste the other two Barrel Room Series beers. They are hard to find but that will make them all that much more worthwhile, hopefully. In the meantime, if you happen to have a bottle of the New World Tripel handy than consider yourself lucky and pop open that baby.

I poured into a wrong glass, should have used a traditional pint. Color is very hazy yellow. Medium carbonation, with just a little bit of yeast and some floating sediment. Produced huge frothy head. Great aroma of nice Belgian yeast and spice (pepper and coriander). With slight alcohol as you sip. The 10 % ABV is hidden well throughout the brew. Sam Adams limited edition brews are very well made. Well worth the price, especially if you can pick it up on sale. I like the Barrel Room Collections.
