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.

Palate: Medium+ body, full, creamy effervescence.

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

Pours copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma is apples, pears and Belgian yeasts. Lots of belgian yeast in the taste, some apple again, some vanilla notes too. Lively fermentation but a nice take on a belgian classic.

Pours golden with a nice head. Smells like it should with a nice spice aroma. The Belgium flavor is on the higher end, and the spices are nice. The spices taste like ommegang mixture. Overall a nice flavor. I had this from a 22 ounce bottle.

New World Tripel is generally considered the most-complimented brew in the Barrel Room Collection, but I purchased it for a different reason. I, er, thought the bottle was really cool. No regrets. New World is a lovely take on the Abbey Tripel. And I do mean lovely. New World pours amber-gold. Body is hugely effervescent and the tight-bubble head likes to hang around. Aroma showcases banana and other fruity esters, earth, and candy-like malt. Flavor is tropical, spicy, oaky, and malty. The bitterness from the Saaz hops is minimal. There are some fairly aggressive Tripels out there; New World isn’t one of them. This is a bold, classy, and boozy Belgian adaptation.

Location: Bottle from Lucky in San Carlos, CA
Appearance: Amberish-gold
Aroma: Spiced mangos, peaches
Taste: Thick, spiced tropical fruits, mango puree.
Overall: Missing some of that signature Belgian floral note but I actually appreciated that. A great American take on the style.
