On Tap. Pours a crisp clear cold with only a slight head. Aroma is fruity with banana notes. Tast is more of the same with some spice notes apparent as well. The higher ABV is not really detected. Nice offering from Sam Adams.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market Paramus. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Good head retention. Well, the fruit flies like it... just poured the beer and already had to pull one out. Aroma is bready, yeasty with notes of biscuit malt, stone fruits, caramel, nuts. The taste is stone fruits, caramel, bread, cherries, other stone fruits, mild spice, nuttiness and cotton candy. Slight heat, average carbonation, medium bodied, good balanced. Nice beer.

I had this at Global Brew. I thought this was pretty good. Belgian triple is tasty. I would definitely drink this again.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice. My second from the Sam Adams BRC. Standard tripel aroma of yeast, fruit and spice. Really cool amber color with a nice fizzy head. Darker than most of its style. Smooth, weighty palate that filled the mouth. Carbonation was slightly lower than most triples, which I liked. Good blend of flavors of banana, clove, spicy malts and Belgian yeast. Good sipper.

Pretty tepid and mundane tripel here. Light maltiness, spice, noble hops, but not a great flavor.

25.4 fl oz / 750mL corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass. Served chilled.
Aroma: Spices, yeast. Mild fruitiness.
Appearance: Transparent dark burnt yellow with a frothy off-whitish head.
Taste: Spices, honey. Sweetish fruit. Nice bright flavors.
Palate: Lots of flavor, but manages to still be pretty light and refreshing. Little bit of lingering flavors.
Overall: Pretty nice! Fruity and spiced, and that nice honey sweetness really makes this brew.
