Bottle. Pours light amber with large spongy off-white head, vanilla and spices in aroma, fizzy, slightly sweet vanilla flavored beer with medium finish. Very nice triple; the high alcohol content is not noticeable at all.

Samuel Adams New World is not too bad but not a standout either. NIce deep golden color with a foamy head. Nose is definitely tropical fruit. Taste is the same with mild spice and a boozy finish. New World is a decent quaff but definitely a sipper.

Reddish pour, light off white head. Smells of pear and jelly beans, tastes like soft candied fruit and spiced cake. Dry and bitter finish with a lot of alcohol. Itís a style thing but I donít care for the Belgian flavor profile at all. i would not drink this again.

Bottle from the brewery. Once you pour it, fantastic aromas of spice, herbs, wild honey, caramelly herbs meet and greet the nose. It pours beautifully revealing a balanced carbonation and a thick, frothy head. Taste is as full as one could hope for; tropical fruits, citra, grass, tobacco, earthy and even licorice. A fantastic beer to sip and savour every mouthfull.

OK, the latest from the oak barrel series from Sam Adams, Iíve been impressed so far. I like the distinctive barrel design of the bottle and the etched label is very well done. This one has a unique aroma of nutty Belgian yeast, passion fruit, banana, sweet malt, herbs,and grass. First class appearance of clear, dark gold with a thick, creamy, white blanket of a head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is very pronounced while pouring. This is really a well crafted ale, the sweet, bitter, and sour flavors are well balanced, with the right amount of carbonation. Itís as good as the best tripels from Belgium. Has a soft, well rounded flavor. Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is perfectly balanced. Really looks and tastes like a genuine Belgian with itís own unique qualities, very impressive. The alcohol is well hidden, a good fall sipper.

"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.
