This is one hefty bottle with cork and cage, and the cork was not easy to open which I suppose is a good thing if your looking to age it.

A light gold color with amber-ish hues, slight haze and classic rushing carbonation directly from the middle which creates a nearly perfect 2" inch high all-white head showing good activity with slow retention.

The aroma is very complex, zippy and tart fruity esters pop right out with sharp lemmons toned downed by a crispy wheat and bunches of dry-earthy aroma's. Slightly musty wheat and fruits with honey-like sweetness and some vodka type heat. The oak aroma really pops and certainly adds depth to all aroma's along with several spices and pepper! but also in the heat tingle. This is easily one of the most complex aroma's for a Tripel, very bold...worth contemplating for sure.

The flavor is without a doubt sublime. Bold, brash flavor's, crispy honey-sweet malt and a yeasty complexity that pushes the limits. The yeast baffles explanation at first with massive dry earthy tones and musty, spicey...grandma's spice rack!! subtle banana's and cloves, red fruits and a snappy bite from 10% heat. The flavor's eventhough it's very, very complex has a wonderful balance.

The feel is simply amazing with snappy, slightly hot and dry medium bodied feel, good bite and a full, smooth finish. a lushous and wonderful mouthfeel.

This is exactly the kind of brew that I'm all about right now, Belgian Tripel and Farmhouse ale's are "in" for me big time and this one hits the spot. a wonderous brew.

Bottle purchased today from the Samuel Adams brewery in Boston. Served somewhat chilled in my Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottle #2889.

Body is a nice golden-yellow. A little bit foggy, but almost clear. Some bubbles rise to the top. Head is perfectly white, big but airy, dissipates rather quickly.

Smells of sweet fruit, maybe pineapple; a little bit of "spice" that is typically given from the Belgian yeast stains; and just a bit of alcohol gently coming through. The aroma is strong enough that it could be smelled the moment it was poured into the glass, but it has a lightness or delicateness to it as well. Very nice.

Sweetness hits first up-front, not overly hard, but just a nice passing pleasantness. The 'spiciness' interrupts the sweetness -- that is, it doesn't wait until the sweetness leaves before joining in. It doesn't muscle the sweet away, they are actually pretty harmonious together. Finishes with just a slight warmth from the alcohol that gently brushes over the palate. The more I drink it, the less I get that warming sensation from the alcohol. Just a little sweetness lingers on the tongue. Everything is in such balance. Wonderful.

Body is moderate to light. Carbonation is on the low side, but probably moderate for style. Definitely feels like an easy-sipper. Drinkability is outstanding, as well. Could probably finish the bottle myself given a reasonable amount of time, as long as I had nowhere to drive.

Oh, brave new world with such beer in it!!! Would go back for more, easily. I'm no expert on this style, but this beer was absolutely outstanding for me. Probably the best I've had of its kind, I really can't say what I would want improved upon it.

If you can get your hands on a bottle, I recommend it.

Bought this beer from the Boston brewery gift-shop. Served in a standard pint glass (sadly, my Sam Adam's Perfect Pint broke on the way home.)

A-Very bubbly. Yellow color with a fluffy, white head. Lacing was great.

S-Very pleasant, slightly fruity. Relatively light smell, not overwhelming in the least.

T-Very good. I was expecting an overly complex orgy of different flavors, but everything came together very nicely. Somewhat sweet with many fruity lavors that complemented each other nicely.

MF-Fairly carbonated. Even a slight tickle on the tip of the tongue.

D-Very drinkable.

Overall-I am sad after drinking this. Soley because I know it will not be available for purchase again. It was a very tasty brew with many flavors that complimented each other very nicely.

750ml bottle purchased at McKinnon's in Salem, Bottle number 1180. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow with a good inch or so of persistent off-white head that leaves some very decent lacing. Wood, ripe banana, date, nut, and spice all play parts in the aroma. Ripe banana, apple, pear jump right out, with notes of nut, spice, and malt. Medium bodied with ample carbonation to make this much more drinkable than expected. Complex, delicious, and drinkable. Wow. I'm impressed.

A: Robust white head coats the glass the second you pour this beer. The beer has a nice yellowish golden orange tint which is slightly cloudy.
S: You get a first scent of bread followed by a very strong citrusy pineapple tangeriney fruit aroma and some nice bitter finish from the hops.
T: The beer has a great light malt flavor blending into a mixture of pear, pineapple citrus fruit tempered by some good hoppy bitterness to give the beer some weight. There is a slight presence of alcohol but it is not overwhelming.
M/O: Very crisp and bright carbonation that livens up the flavor. Really hits the mark with the style while imparting some nice fruity tones into a very enjoyable beer.

Bottle poured into sam adams imperial series snifter. Straw golden with orange highlights, pours with a thick cream white head.

Aromas are pineapple, peach and mango. Very little in the way of heavy oak, very faint woody notes. Vanilla, orange and light tangerine as it warms. Nice peppery and floral notes from the belgian yeast.

Flavor profile is heavily tropical fruit and white rum. Pineapple, bananna, clove, with hints of maple and rose. The alcohol character provides the bulk of the drying sensation in the palate with finishing notes od honey suckle and jasmine.

The mouthfeel is medium lite with a dry finish, no astringency very clean and smooth.

Extremely drinkable and balanced, an absolute homerun from SA.

Pours a hazy golden color with a fluffy white 2 finger head that leave a wonderful sticky lacing.

The aroma is spicy banana, cloves, tropical fruits, citrus, sweet malts, bubblegum, and just a hint of oak... I love the earthy and rich scent this emits... smells so luxurious!

The taste follows the nose.... peppery spice sweetness, tropical citrus (mango, pineapples, banana), sweet and complex! The oak is very subdued however, but this is such a delicious offering form Sam Adams that i am very impressed with how well this is crafted. And the alcohol is very well hidden.... I was amazed that I was able to buy this for $4.49!!! I am definitely going to get some more of these to enjoy ;-)

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Good looking beer from Boston Beer Co with a golden orange pour. Mostly clear with just a slight haze. Plenty of carbonation from new bubbles down low and the head up top. The head...pretty immense, it snuck up on me. 3+ fingers thick. Big time retention. Thick, soapy lace.

Smell is all over the place, and in a good way. Pear, white grape, pepper, citrus, Belgian sugar, alcohol.

One of the few Sam Adams beers that nails it. Tastes like a Belgian should, with just a few bits to Americanize it. The honey really comes through on the tongue where it wasn't very noticed in the smell. The hops give a nice savory, spicy balance to the sweet from the citrus and tropical fruits and sugars. There's a dance that lasts well into the finish.

This thing nails it again. It's sweet and savory at the same time. It's citrusy and spicy at the same time. It's got heat from the high ABV, but it's well hidden. It's got an earthiness to it from the aging that's not destroyed by too much bite from the alcohol. It's well carbonated. It's a party on the palate.

Easily one of the best Sam Adams beers I've ever had. There are no complaints on this beer. Truly a tripel that even a Belgian could be proud to drink. Certainly has some unique American features, but they hit this out of the park.

Poured into my brand new Kasteel goblet.

5.0 A: Nearly clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy hybrid white head. Great retention and lots of lacing.

4.5 S: Earthy and spicy, this is a great smelling brew. The most prominent aroma is probably yeastiness with peppery spiciness and a touch of clove as well. Hops add a subtle dirty earthiness. Peachy fruitiness is also there, but not so much tropical fruit as suggested by the label. Other than the aromas mentioned, this beer is very clean. Oak is much lighter than I would have expected.

4.5 T: Lots and lots of pepper spiciness with some clove in there too. Some fruitiness remains, but much drier than the nose would suggest. Instead, there's a lot more earthiness with some hay and barnyard funkiness. Don't get me wrong, this is a tripel, but it does have some saison-like characteristics. Oak comes through more in the taste. Pretty damn good.

4.0 M: Light body. Lots, if not too much, spritzy carbonation. Good creaminess. Goes down easy for the amount of carbonation.

4.5 D: This is easily my favorite SA brew. Until now, just about everything has left me unimpressed. Everytime I find my self pulling a cork from a bottle of beer, I wonder if the beer inside is worthy of such a fancy presentation. This one is.

$10 pickup from the new Hy-vee in Dekalb. Great selection there.

Pours a deep, hazy gold with a dense layer of foam and moderate carbonation.

Great Belgian yeast smell comes in under the tropical fruit aroma.

Prickly feel in the mouth from carbonation and high ABV. Tasting banana esters which are fantastic. Some tropical fruit in the taste as the nose suggested.

I haven't had too many tripels, so maybe my ratings are a little high, but I think this is a high quality brew.

No sediment from the bottom of the bottle was needed, this beer's complexion was murky from the get-go. Still, it managed to emit an orange-golden ember that by all accounts should be classified as 'light'. Its head is stacked like Lego, one layer above the last, and the lacing it leaves set's like mortar into the glass. Permanent.

The aroma gives me good reason to believe that this beer might just be worth the fancy bottle it's been packaged in (to say nothing of the corresponding price tag). It boasts a refreshing acidity, like fresh-squeezed lime, a peppery spice, orange zest and plenty of toasty but pale maltiness. It has it 'going on' in the conventional (and every other) sense.

The spiciness in some tripels falls like a boulder but in this example it's mere pebbles that roll down the mountainside. Part of this is owed to the massive presence of tropical fruits: lime, lemon, pear, pineapple. Herbaceous grassy notes, stale marzipan and dry hay are also large slices of the flavor/mouthfeel pie. It is semi-dry yet lively, above all delicious.

The beer not only has a wine-like alcohol strength but also a somewhat wine-like acidity too. New World almost emulates a Sauvignon Blanc, registering similar levels of lime zest and green pepper, both in flavor and pH. Sweet pea, green grass and melon are not far off the mark either. If not Belgian, one might guess it as Kiwi. It's a wine/beer crossover.

Most American tripels are 'Belgian' in character only in the same way that the Olive Garden is Italian. Everything about Samuel Adams' New World Tripel, however, is unequivocally Old World. It is malty and phenolic, quaffable yet complicated, boastful yet refined. It is, in truth, pretty much all you could ask for in a tripel. And it deserves a lot of lovin'.

Appearance-Pours a shade darker than your average Tripel giving off a more amber color than the usual yellow-gold, still lovely looking. Lovely head that bubbles away rather soon, leaving sticky globs of lacing as it recedes to a thin milimeter or so of film.

Aroma-Wonderful heady aroma of spicy/fruity Belgian yeastyness right up front, a light scent of vanilla in there as well as a floral character that I can't quite place but know I've smelled before, maybe the hops?

Taste-Great 'authentic' taste, if you served this to me I'd have assumed it was from Belgium. Sweet upfront with spicy overtones, some herbal and slightly medicinal qualities as well, the woodsiness and vanilla-ish flavors from the oak comes through on the finish, which is just fine by my palette, too soon and it would overwhelm the other qualities.

Mouthfeel-Medium-full, a little lighter than most Tripels and less carbonated as well.

Drinkability/Overall-Sam nailed this one, I'm excited to see more American brewers nail my overall favorite style and bring new twists to this delicious classic.

As a newbie to the 'reserve' beer scene, it was quite nice to sample Samuel Adams New World Tripel on a recent trip to Boston.

It pours as a very pretty golden color with a thick head that quickly dissipates as the beer warms.

In a sniffer glass, the beer has a pleasant banana aroma at first, which completely changes to a nice hoppy scent upon drinking. This was surprising to me, as tripels are somewhat known for their maltiness. I didn't expect a hoppy flavor. Whether it was my uneducated palate talking or the beer talking, I'm not so sure.

This beer is very drinkable -- the high ABV (10%, as listed on the bottle) is completely hidden by the high malt content and complex flavor. The oak didn't quite come through for me, but the listed "tropical fruit" certainly did. YMMV, though.

Since I am a dedicated fan of darker beers, like doppelbocks, it was a bit of a surprise that I liked this beer as much as I did. I would definitely purchase this again, though probably not if I was planning on pairing it with 'heavier' meals. My beer paired very well with Havarti cheese and a non-spicy dried sausage.

Also, be careful! As a young woman, this beer packed a heavy kick! Pay attention to your ABV content.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice white fluffy head with good lacing. Belgian yeast, sweet fruity spices, some apricot aroma fill the senses. Taste of sweet fruity spices, Belgian yeast some light citrusy hops and a light oaked flavor. Palate is a nice crisp medium body creamy with some light carbonation, almost champagne like. Finish is sweet fruity spice notes, some Belgian yeast with a distinct oak barrel flavor and sweet dry ending. Overall a very good complex and flavorful brew. Very nicely done.

Bottle shared with friends on New Year's Eve. Served slightly chilled - around 50 degrees or so in tulips.

Huge and long lasting head on the pour. Kind of a copper color, slightly cloudy. Very nice looking glass of beer.

Expected a big whiff of alcohol on the nose but not so. Nice hop aroma, tropical/citrus-like fruit aromas, maybe a little banana note in there as well. I didn't get much of a grain aroma.

Loved the flavor - the alcohol is hidden extremely well. Nice balance to it between the fruity flavors and the hops kicking in a little bitter on the back end. Liked the carbonation level, but couldn't drink a lot of it with that much CO2. Good to be sharing! since i think it could be a little "bloating". A little astringency/drying at the end which was nice. Since we split it amongst four people, the volume was just right to be refreshing and keep it interesting.

Update: This beer does NOT age well. Had a ten month old bottle that was not good at all.

Okay, so here goes my first beer review!

Some one on here stated this was the most disappointing beer they have tasted in their life... BS. This tripel is fantastic.

A- Not the prettiest color but it pours well and sticks to the inside of the glass like a fine wine. Perfect amount of head. Needs to be poured slow though. What it last in color it gains in body. Color is (pale) Gold. With a slim haze.

S- Smells good, my first impression was clove and something tropical not quite fruity.

T- The best past of drinking this beer was the taste. The smell and appearance do it no justice. Awesome pop early with the cloves as well as yeast. Middle has slight fruitiness to it some banana some raisin I even got a very slight touch of pineapple. Ends with the noble hops. The Saaz hops adds a great herbal touch that really pairs nicely with the spicy beginning.

M- Mouthfeel is well above average. The body of this beer gives it a nice smooth texture and really impressed me with the first sip.

Overall an excellent beer that will not disappoint. I enjoyed this beer thoroughly and I think you will too. As much as I liked it, I could only handle maybe two glasses of this stuff. Perfect for a meal though.

Strong aroma is crisp, fruity and yeasty with a hint of butterscotch and a bit of alcohol bite. It pours a beautiful, bubbly, clear amber with a very thick and fluffy white head. Crisp, mouth-filling flavor has a firm fruity component that is mainly apple with a note of banana, along with butterscotch and malty notes, a hint of caramel, and an alcohol bite that gets your attention without being fierce. Full-bodied texture has a fair amount of fizz and leaves a crisp, fruity, malty finish. GO PATRIOTS!!!!

The color when poured was a light golden yellow with an orange hue. Also, two fingers of tight white foam and plenty of lace on the side of the tulip glass. The aroma was of spices, fruit with a hint of herbal notes. The taste of carbonated fruit, spices was very pleasant without the alcohol over powering this this fantastic Golden Tripel.
