Appearance- by far one of the most perfect appearances I have seen in a long time, its really just beautiful, nice bubbles stream so nice up the glass and thick foam head stands for long period time just really as flawless appearance you could see
Smell- very nice nose for the belgian triple style, nice yeast citrus tones, spot on for the style, not getting alot the oak but really nice nose
taste- up front starts sweet but has really nice spice on the finish keeping it balanced, nice spice sweetness, and just so balanced really hard even notice a real flaw, if you like this style its real spot on, i dont get alot of the oak but its all coming together in general
mouthfeel- very creamy and very smooth, enjoyable
Drinkability/overall- i have to say really perfectly drinkable and so balanced, spot on beer and one the most impressed I have ever been by sam adams, just really good stuff and I highly recommend trying this if you like tripels, wheres the 10 %?

Deep orange body, light haze and tons of carbonation. On pour, a huge off-white head presents itself but after awhile fades to a slim ring. Light lacing and legs.
Quite zesty! Light maltiness with a pleasant earthy and spiced hop note. Peppery. A citrus sweetness is present and white grape juice. Bubblegum and a hint of clove.
Wow - expectations surpassed! Everything the nose sets you up for is present and there is nothing subtle about any of it. Beautiful spice with spot on pepper, clove and a hint of coriander and perhaps a bit of lavender. Although a bit out of style, a nice bubblegum and pear character rounds out the taste. With an ABV of 10%, this beer blows me away! I can detect literally no alcohol at all, it is masked beautifully - however, half way through the bottle... I can definitely feel it!
Light to medium body and gobs of carbonation. Not exactly smooth, but it works well for this. A mild dry finish and not lingering aftertaste.
To date, this is easily the best beer I've had from the Boston Beer Co! What makes it so impressive is its incredible balance, well masked alcohol profile, and complex hit to the taste buds. Next time you see this, don't shy away from this due to the fact that it is a Samuel Adams - it's a brilliant beer that must be experienced!

Had on tap today at Hops Burger Bar here in GSO.Poured into a tulip glass a hazed lighter amber with a tightly formed large head that never completely settled.Candied sugar and very mild spiced phenols in the nose.Alot of candied sugar on the palate,some lefay hops and spiced phenols make for a bold flavor profile.This beer is pretty big and bold even for the style,it's not a style I go to often but once in awhile a beer like this is nice to sip on in an empty bar.

A 750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Gold color, a hint of haze. Small white head that nevertheless retained well.
Nice earthy, yeasty aroma. Sweet fruit, a little bit of spice.
The aromas really came together well in the taste. Tropical fruit, cotton candy, clove. Bready.
More substantial in my mouth than I thought it would be.
Good beer. Glad that I stopped at Kappy's because I haven't found this in Maine yet.

Poured into a Chimay chalice
Appearance: 1/4 inch head that fades fast, dark gold in color, clear, moderate carbonation
Smell: Belgian spices, apple, citrus, and hay
Taste: Belgian spices, tropical fruit,orange and lemon zest, yeast, and pepper
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweet with a touch of bitterness
Overall: One of the better tripels I have had lately. I like this because it is not too boozy or bitter but still hits the flavors I expect in a tripel. I will look for this again.

The beer pours a golden color with a large white head. The aroma has a lot of pineapple and tropical fruit notes, as well as some alcohol, white pepper and Belgian yeast. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of pepper and fruit notes, as well as some chewy biscuit malt. The alcohol is also quite noticeable, which is not a surprise for a beer that is 10 percent. There is also a little bit of oak and vanilla character hidden in the background. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Smell: Cloves, Peppery, some citrus maybe.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and smooth. Taste of cloves, pepper, and fruity.
Overall. One of the better Tripels I have had. Good brew.

750ml corked & caged bottle poured into an 8oz tulip.
Pours a crisp sparkling light golden color with a big fluffy whit head. Nose is very spicy with a log of belgian character and a hint of booze.
This tastes a heck of a lot like La Fin Du Monde, It's got that Belgian yeastiness that Unibroue has in their beers, with a bit of an alcoholic burn. Mouthfeel is big and full due to high carbonation, reminiscent of Westmalle Tripel. It's a decent beer, so far I like the Stoney Brook Red more.

New World Tripel smells rich and malty, with plenty of orange, apricot, and brown sugar aromas to satisfy the tripel moniker, as well as hints of coriander, fig, banana, clove, and vanilla, all atop a toasted grain layer that is reminiscent of a freshly-baked baguette.
On the tongue, the brew continues to be an excellent example of a tripel, with lovely citrus and fruit notes mixed with spices. For the former, there is a good mixture of orange (vaguely orange liqueur-like, actually), banana, apricot, pear, fig, and lychee nut. For the latter, there is clove, coriander, grains of paradise, and hints of nutmeg and allspice. Again, all of this atop a Grape Nuts cereal-like layer of toasted grains, with the addition of slight hints of oak. The aftertaste is a continuation of the main mouthful, with slightly more spice (as the sugars wear off more quickly), and fades with medium quickness. Mouthfeel is medium-light, and carbonation is medium-heavy.
Overall, this is a great beer right out of the bottle, my only complaint being that there is a vague bubble-gum sweetness to the malts. I suspect, however, that a good six to twelve-month aging would remove this sweetness, and make the brew far more complex and satisfying.

Bottle #0472 served in a Belgian sSnifter.
A: Pale and hazy orange-amber in color, with a semi-durable head. Decent lacing.
Aroma: excellent fruity and bready mix. Complex and lightly spicy.
Flavor: various soft and tropical fruits and a multitude of spice notes. Excellent aftertaste brings out more grain flavor and adds a subtle herbal note.
Feel: nice lively body but a bit too hot (not surprising given 10% ABV) despite some aging.
O: a strong tripel that is flavorful, aromatic and complex.
