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.

"Tropical fruit and spice indeed! Ever so slight hop bite. Maaaybe a bit sweeter and fruitier than the norm, but also dry in the finish and quite tasty. I have been impressed with this series."

Drank out of a dixie cup. Lots of spices. Not much oak. Mango. Decent tripel, but not my thing.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Backlog rating on 8-04-2012 at Brew Haven (New Haven, IN) This draft beer forms a small white head with a long retention, yellow transparent body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is malt, yeast, light hops, banana, and clove. The flavor is sweet malt, lightly bitter, banana, and yeast. This beer is medium bodied. The ABV is hidden in this beer and I like the way the flavors come together in this beer. This beer is a beer I would drink again.

MacBoost (1288) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2014
75l bottle, must be at least a few years old. Cork comes out with a nice pop but no gushing. Pours a clear amber with a generous white head. Aromas of fruity yeast esters and some light oak. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of clove, banana, some bubblegum and a touch of oak. High carbonation. Finish is semi sweet, lightly bitter and pretty quick. Decent. High boost.

Really fruity. Has a nice aroma but the taste can be a little much. Still probably worth trying.

lownote (84) - USA - SEP 6, 2014
Sweet fruity aroma. Pours a hazy golden color with lots of thick head that hangs around forever. Med/light mouth feel with a tiny bit of carbonation. Taste is unfortunately oversweet but otherwise pretty good. slight alcohol taste at the end.
