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.

TheEpeeist (3408) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Cool, unique 25.4 oz bottle; kind of looks like a barrel. Misty orange brown with a clingy white head. Nose is bubblegum, clove, vanilla and candied lemon peel. Oily medium body with a sting and a dull buzz, finishing with a dry clench. Taste is dried pineapple, grass, yeast and apricot. Not bad, a bit messy, but does avoid some of the perfume, cloying or plastic notes of many tripels.

tom10101 (3151) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle (750 ml). Splt 4-ways with the family.

Appearance: Bright dark golden with a medium easy to revive off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Fruity notes, followed by some spiciness, biscuity malt, alcohol and hints of candi sugar.

Taste: Quite fruity with moderate spiciness, light sweetness, biscuity malt, alcohol, candi sugar. Belgian influence is quite noticeable here.

Palate: Medium body. Soft pricky carbonation. Warming and spicy finish.

Overall: Well executed Tripel. A bit strong on alcohol (not necessarily the abv, but the alcohol feeling), but balance isnít bad. Quite fruity. Good.

jamesewelch (70) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2015
From bottle 750ml, corked

Aroma: spicy hops, some citrus, little fruity

Appearance: Golden, hazy, white head

Taste: A little sweet

Palate: Light body, lively carbonation, dry finish

Overall: Iím pretty surprised that I enjoy this Tripel this much. It reminds me of a nice Belgian Tripel. Not a spice bomb. Has nice subtle spice and fruitiness. Great dry finish. Much better than I expected. I donít drink much from Sam Adams, bought this as a 3-pack special on sale. Iíd definitely buy more if they came in regular 750ml, 4 or 6 packs.

ScottWallace82 (73) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden color. Light hops, malt and fruit on the nose. Solid, medium to heavy mouthfeel. A touch earthy, but still a very fine trippel. Would buy again.

A little fruity but full flavor. Very good beer. Doesnít taste as strong as it is. Another strong Sam Adams

trapped (939) - New York City, TURKEY - DEC 27, 2014
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.

sloshgator (486) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
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.

Gachupines (959) - USA - DEC 14, 2014
Golden color with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is slight banana with mild spice. Flavor is heavy banana with noticeable cloves. Relatively full body and a somewhat sweet finish. Wife: 3.9

GriffDaddy (78) - - DEC 7, 2014
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.

bbertels (136) - NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
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.
