Pours clear golden with a large white head. Smells fruity, yeasty, and has hints of spices. Taste is tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, some honey sweetness, and very subtle clove. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and fair mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams New World Tripel finishes a little sweet and a little spicy. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Unique bottle. Corked and caged. 750mL, BRC.
Pours orange, golden color. Thick foam, of big off-white bubbles. Aroma of tropic fruit for sure, loads of pineapple. Herbal nose with a touch of vanilla\oak character. All this just from the cork! Aroma in the glass is floral and has honey and golden raisin. Creamy body, heavy. Tastes of raisin puree, tropical fruit, some spice, lime leaves, peach & pear, and a touch of vanilla and oak. The thickness of the beer is most captivating. Overall, WOW, and worth every penny. wildbillvms (45) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2012
I went to the store to buy/try Chimay Trappist beer - Didn’t have it so I bought this... Not too bad.... I give it the highest marks except for price - But I do understand , it does cost a LOT more to make ! dwyerpg (6182) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Another excellent beer. This is a beer that attempted to make a really good tripel without upsetting any boundaries and did a fantastic job at it. Quite tasty. 2 for 2 in this series so far. drpimento (3634) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Whoa, serious tripel! Cork was one of the most difficult ever. Had a good pop. Poured at a good temperature with a large, thick, foamy, cream-colored head that lasts a while and some lace. Color is a clear amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is a volatile blend of malt, fruit, spice, hop. Flavor is like nose, mildly sweet with good carbonic tang and a little bitter to balance very nicely. Body is full and is dominated by fine sparkling wine style carbonation that adds an elegant dimension. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, has some alcohol warmth and is a true pleasure to sip. A masterpiece! Be fun to cook with if I didn’t drink it all.

This is a great beer overall but an amazing tripel. It has a orange and white head and goes down smoothly. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
This brew was VERY good. The look of the bottle was great, the look of the beer was even better. You could taste the full spectrum of ingredients and the 10% alcohol wasn’t the least bit overbearing. Great Brew EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2014
This beer pours a very clear orange with a medium white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends Belgian yeast, sour fruit, a hint of citrus (probably orange), some booze at the end of the scent, and some biscuity malts. The flavor is a very complex and pleasing fusion of a slight sweetness, mild sourness, and a touch of umami; there is also some booze in the flavor, but it is generally unperceived until the finish without being unpleasant or overwhelming. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, medium-full body, and a slick texture (but the carbonation does slightly obstruct the texture). tsd08460 (1166) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 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.
