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.

In my "fruitless" quest for the ultimate tripel, got this at a Rouse’s in Houma, LA. I remember asking the owner at de Bierkoning in Amsterdam what tripel might be good, and he shrugged disdainfully and said, "everybody makes a triple nowadays." This has zesty lemony attack and peachy/mango/apricot fruit; it has a nice kick with its 10%. The texture is rich & frothy as blonde beers go, and although the overall balance approaches sweet, a touch of tart and bitter round it out great. This beer makes it worthwhile to keep questing, and I would happily get it again.

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

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A bright golden beer that pours with a large foamy head. It has a zesty lemon and spicy pineapple and orange flavour, gentle vanilla and oak notes with biscuit and peach on the warming, spiced creamy finish. Excellent!

Solid tripel through and through. A bit less carbonated than the Old World varieties, and maybe a bit heavier in mouthfeel, too.
