Pours a clear deep golden with a gigantic eggshell colored head. The head dissipates with a soap sudsy look. Belgian golden ale nose with spice muted by the oak barrel. Moderately heavy mouthfeel with a slight carbonation burn. Vibrant flavors. Drinks like a Belgian strong ale with the bubblegum and spiciness of a tripel. Some tropical esters. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Definite Belgian yeast flavor. Slightly fruity. Pretty good. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

25.4oz bottle 11/13/15 (Sam’s Club Variety Pack)-38° in Tulip-Pours a pale gold with a big white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of yeast, citrus, and fruits. Taste of the same with a bit of alcohol and more fruit(apple and pears). This medium bodied brew is not bad and pretty darn tasty. weordie (1184) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2015
Pours copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma is apples, pears and Belgian yeasts. Lots of belgian yeast in the taste, some apple again, some vanilla notes too. Lively fermentation but a nice take on a belgian classic. Aggiebob (1125) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle. Orange gold with a big white head. Notes of apricot, spices, banana and caramel. It has a nice sweetness that covers the alcohol in the back end. Very enjoyable on a raining evening.

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. MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 8, 2015
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. tightslice (1309) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Location: Bottle from Lucky in San Carlos, CA
Aroma: Spiced mangos, peaches
Taste: Thick, spiced tropical fruits, mango puree.
Overall: Missing some of that signature Belgian floral note but I actually appreciated that. A great American take on the style.
