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 a hazy deep gold with a huge rocky white head. Sweet candy-like aroma. Spicy fruit flavors, orange, candy, pepper, and lemon notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and warming. The high level of carbonation leads to a dry finish. An impressive tripel that is complex and full of flavor.

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.

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.

750 ml bottle, no date code.
Hazy orangy sunset, thick lasting head above lively carbonation.
Sweet citrus aroma, some yeast.
Flavor is sweet and fruity, a little spicy hops, and very light oak.
finish is a little too sweet.
