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.

Pours clear golden with a large white head. Smells fruity, yeasty, and has hints of spices. Taste is tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, some honey sweetness, and very subtle clove. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and fair mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams New World Tripel finishes a little sweet and a little spicy.

unclemattie (4263) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Unique bottle. Corked and caged. 750mL, BRC. Pours orange, golden color. Thick foam, of big off-white bubbles. Aroma of tropic fruit for sure, loads of pineapple. Herbal nose with a touch of vanilla\oak character. All this just from the cork! Aroma in the glass is floral and has honey and golden raisin. Creamy body, heavy. Tastes of raisin puree, tropical fruit, some spice, lime leaves, peach & pear, and a touch of vanilla and oak. The thickness of the beer is most captivating. Overall, WOW, and worth every penny.

I went to the store to buy/try Chimay Trappist beer - Didn’t have it so I bought this... Not too bad.... I give it the highest marks except for price - But I do understand , it does cost a LOT more to make !

Another excellent beer. This is a beer that attempted to make a really good tripel without upsetting any boundaries and did a fantastic job at it. Quite tasty. 2 for 2 in this series so far.

drpimento (2294) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Whoa, serious tripel! Cork was one of the most difficult ever. Had a good pop. Poured at a good temperature with a large, thick, foamy, cream-colored head that lasts a while and some lace. Color is a clear amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is a volatile blend of malt, fruit, spice, hop. Flavor is like nose, mildly sweet with good carbonic tang and a little bitter to balance very nicely. Body is full and is dominated by fine sparkling wine style carbonation that adds an elegant dimension. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, has some alcohol warmth and is a true pleasure to sip. A masterpiece! Be fun to cook with if I didn’t drink it all.

This is a great beer overall but an amazing tripel. It has a orange and white head and goes down smoothly.

This brew was VERY good. The look of the bottle was great, the look of the beer was even better. You could taste the full spectrum of ingredients and the 10% alcohol wasn’t the least bit overbearing. Great Brew

EtTuCthulhu (1138) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2014
This beer pours a very clear orange with a medium white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends Belgian yeast, sour fruit, a hint of citrus (probably orange), some booze at the end of the scent, and some biscuity malts. The flavor is a very complex and pleasing fusion of a slight sweetness, mild sourness, and a touch of umami; there is also some booze in the flavor, but it is generally unperceived until the finish without being unpleasant or overwhelming. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, medium-full body, and a slick texture (but the carbonation does slightly obstruct the texture).

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.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle poured into tulip. Attractive golden color, clear, well carbonated, ample fluffy head. Nice, pleasant tripel-reminiscent aroma of banana, spice, Belgian yeast, light toasted bread crust, tropical fruits, hint of vanilla. Not overpowering. Soft and subdued on the palate, slightly sticky, quick finish. Taste is very good with more tropical fruit, spice, hints of orange marmalade and bubblegum, and booze. Strong and tasty. Despite not picking up any of the oak from the barrel aging, a very well made tripel overall. Complex, balanced, and flavorful.
