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.

probstblueribbon (3209) - Nepean, Ontario, - FEB 24, 2013
Part of a 750 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. GUSHER.

App.: Amber with some floaties and a small white head. Aroma: Very sweet, some earthy and citrusy coriander, light pome fruit, a little grassy hops, some light yeast, a bit of alcohol, sweet honey and biscuit. Palate: Medium+ body, full, creamy effervescence. Flav.: Alcohol and old apple juice, some orange peel, a touch of yeast, more alcohol, slightly spicy, biscuit, honey; sweet with low bitterness, plenty of alcohol and a very sweet, fruity finish.

Not really a success for my palate. Regret opening the bottle...

Really nice for a Samuel Adams. This really is its own category though. The nicest thing about this...what u smell is what u get.

Rich apricot golden colour. I liked sudsy-good description of the head. Stewed fruits and banana candy aroma with the hunt of spices. Complex palate very rich and warming. Nice beer

Purchased one year ago, stashed in the basement since then. Cork loosened, then boomised! Poured a vibrant gold with a massive white that just sat there. Among reminded me of my mother’s pineapple upside down cake, taste was even better. This was an an easy drinking brew that will sneak up on you. I was surprised I liked it so much. Way to go Boston Beer Co!!!!!

This is a pleasant beer, perhaps the most approachable of the Barrel Collection project. The pour is a vibrant gold with a sudsy head and a ton of carbonation. The aroma is light. The taste displays bread and crackers in the malt and a wonderful light spice and bitterness to the finish. It is a good tripel, but Samuel Adams is a distant second in their own area to Mystic Brewery when it comes to Belgian styles.

HonusWagner (1682) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle cellared from batch one, so there’s not any of that herbal hop quality I was promised, but this beer is quite spicy and tropical, reminiscent of a rum cake thing you’d get in the Caribbean but without the sweetness of rum.

750 ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of sweet light malt, light fruit, belgian yeast. Light bodied, one of their better beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Air is wonderful and gives your nose a dream to look forward to. Color is a beautiful golden cascade. Taste is pungent and powerful. I personally do not believe that the aroma matches the flavor. The description of the flavor is accurate, just not my cup of tea. Very wide range on the flavor spectrum. Overall, a mediocre attempt at a craft beer.
