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.

Various ideas that didnt all hang together. Not so drinkable. Nice looking. Sweet, spicy taste and sweet aroma. Its the style, but it doesnt quite rise to the occasion of those produced in Belgium

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Shared a rare corked bottle into tulip glasses; thanks John! Poured a beautiful, golden amber color with some chill haze and huge off-white head, excellent retention with Belgian lace and alcoholic legs. Profoundly complex aromas of mild grains, floral, herbal and citrusy hops, pepper and clove from the yeast, tropical fruit essences, soft alcohol vapors. Flavors of bread, mellow pilsner malt, more mango, mellon, citrus, pepper and clove. Mildly sweet, delicately balanced bitterness from hops and unfamiliar fermentation phenols. Became even more and more interesting as it warmed. Light-medium body, remarkable considering the 10% alcohol. Mouthfeel was effervescent, clean, smooth and creamy, but with a refreshing, crisp, almost dry finish. Strong and sophisticated, dangerously delicious. Possessed all the traits of the exquisite Trappist style plus additional "New World" attributes, exactly as stated on the label. Great stuff.

Bottle - pours hazy gold with a white head. Spices in the aroma. Very sweet flavor, spices, could tell from how sweet it was it had the high ABV. Little boozy.

I had been wanting to try this one for some time and fortunately someone brought this one to the Christmas 3R6P gathering. +++Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with a small white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy candied golden fruits. The flavor was tangy sweet bread, sugar and a blend of candied peach, pear and apricot. The finish was long and tangy with sugar and mixed golden fruits lingering. Full bodied, a bit chalky and somewhat boozy. A bit flawed but nice.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Corked bottle. Pours a clear gold with a large off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left patchy lace. A slow pour is required to keep the head manageable. Pleasant aroma that has mild Belgian yeast spice, a bit of candi sugar, and some malt. The flavor is malt with some fruit and spice contributed by the Belgian yeast followed by some moderate hops bitterness. Some candi sugar sweetness present throughout in the flavor. Bright on the palate. While tripels are not my favorite style, I found this one to be quite enjoyable.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
750 mL Bottle with a champagne-type cork. Murky deep gold body with a very generous foamy and long-lasting white head that clings to the glass with lots of lace as the beer is sipped. Here we have another Belgian-style with a fruity-spicy aroma: banana and a pineapple sharpness, cookie dough, and cloves accompany the grains and there is the yeastiness and an innuendo of ginger. The flavor is quite bold; banana and pineapple, yeast, an alcohol hotness that is warming and peppery without being harsh, light malts and a wee bit of crystal malt completes the flavor. Grassy-peppery hops come up in the aftertaste without being too bitter and there is a mild Cheddar cheese finish. Mildly peppery yet fairly smooth in the mouth with the obvious: this is a very good craft beer. This is one Ill have after an afternoon of ice-fishing on a frozen lake. This beer was assayed at cellar temperature.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
750 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a branded pint glass. Pours cloudy orange-golden with a tall, frothy white head. The head fades slowly and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of nutmeg and spice, flowers, tropical fruit, pale malts and herbs. The flavour is slightly sweet, with toasted malts, nutmeg and spicy notes. It dries out towards the finish, which is long, dry and spicy. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice, thick creamy tripel. It has a soft spicy quality that complements the malts nicely. Not as complex as it could be, but respectable nonetheless. 2011-11-26
