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.

Bottle from Sam Adams Boston. Delish! Sip sip sip. Funky Belgian yeast in this unfiltered beauty. Taste is of alcohol warming, tropical fruit floral hops. All in very upfront with complexity lingering. Loved this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

davidezdonz (451) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - FEB 27, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2017 A 1pt 9.4 fl oz corked and caged bottle with a best before date of 1st February 2018. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass. It was a clear dark copper orange colour with a slightly less than two finger off white head that had great retention, eventually settling down to a nice creamy layer, while leaving great curtain like lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, banana, clove, honey and pear with hints of spice. Tastes of some light banana and clove at the beginning, followed by spice, candi sugar, orange and pineapple with quite a strong hit of alcohol on the finish. Creamy, full bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall it looks great, and smells nice, but the strong alcohol on the finish was quite harsh in my opinion.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, pear, funk and banana. Malty and funky flavor with light banana before a pear finish.

GoufCustom (1915) - HONG KONG - DEC 23, 2016

750ml cork bottle opened with loud pop bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Clear golden orange colour; Two finger head with long-lasting crumpety white foam; Beautiful sticky lacing with fizzy slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and fairly sweet malt, with fair pineapple, mango, orange, candied fruits, alcohol, very light funk, light phenolic, light floral, sugar, bread, Bel yeast and light herbal grass.

Taste: Medium sweet Pils malt, with light orange, light funk, strong alcohol, liquorices, floral, sugar, spices, very light cloves, light herbs, biscuits, strong Bel yeast, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to full body. Thick and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Strong Pils maltyness in a thick and creamy background. Strong booziness set the tone with dominating liquorices. Orangey-malty with nice floral. Low-fi funk and spiciness and lowly cloves. No barrel taste. Tasty medium sweetness. Biscuity with strong lemon to round. Pretty solid but

Hoppiness: Light floral and light herbal grass in nose. Spice, floral, light herbs, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness - liquorice and hops - is fairly strong for a lasting, mid astringent sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Malty and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: Tripel-wise, this one is fairly solid with strong characters in malt and booze with well-controlled sweetness, but the hoppiness arent that strong, and fruity ester is underwhelming. The supposed KMF and barrel factors are minimal. Its all thunder with a light shower. Not worthy for a bomber treatment and quite disappointing.

BlackHaddock (6978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Large sample from one of the strangely shaped bottles at a tutored beer tasting in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury on 15th Dec 2016. Hazy old gold pour, white head. The nose was floral, tropical fruity and spicy. The taste followed along the same lines: a little sweeter than the aroma suggests maybe but a fine beer all the same.

Aroma is subtlely spicy; hops are mild; malt is mild also, providing some bready aroma. Just a hint of tropical orange flavor. Color is a clear light yellow; head is average size and off-white. Taste provides mild bitterness and just a slight sweetness. The alcohol is not nearly as prominent as I expected given the 10% ABV. The carbonation is just a bit lively which works well with this beer. Overall I like the mouthfeel - a combination of mild sweetness, acidity and carbonation. The mild sweetness, spice and slight orange flavor are pleasant. Texture is interesting - its firmly crisp/acidic which nicely balanced especially the mild sweetness.

It pours dark golden with a white head. There are earthly aromas, tropical fruit, and citrus in the nose. It has earthy flavors with a high tropical fruit flavor. There are also flavors of spice, citrus, and pineapple. It has a moderately full body with alcohol warming and a dry, then sweet finish.

Fine Tripel that leans a bit sweet...but keeps the spice flavor under control. Oak barrel aging doesnt seem to add any extra flavor.
