4.35/5  rDev +11.5%

Appearance:
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.

Aroma:
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.

Taste:
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!

Mouthfeel:
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.

Overall:
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!

Awesome! Best beer I have had by Sam Adams. I could only obtain it from the brewery in boston. Well worth packing it in luggage to get it back to chicago. Fantastic Belgian yeast flavors and a kickin abv.

This one pours a nicely ruby tinted rich golden color that a nice off white rich head that is long lived, settles slow and leaves good lacing down the glass.

The nose is fruity and pleasant with spiced notes that remind me a tad of all spice, there are nice bread tones and some alcohol. A mild but very pleasant nose here.

The taste is exceptional and definitely fruity, but not overly sweet. The flavor is a nicely done malt with woody notes that has a mild hopped experience that balances nicely with a complex array woody malts and spices.

The mouthfeel is silky and rick as a Belgian style should be, just right for this style.

Overall this is an exceptional offering from Samuel Adams and a real treat. This one is one of the best in their entire line up. I highly recommend trying this one.

A nice tripel that so far stands out in my experience with the barrel room collection. Fruity and spicy with a nice color. . Good flavor comes through though as the beer warms I noticed it seems to get a little sweeter, which I don't care for in this style.

Pours a gold, clear colour. Head is overly generous in the pour but good integrity, small off-white bubbly foam.

Smells tart, fairly funky. Belgian phenols with citric twang, slight soapy character, some barnyard. Bit stale as well, could use a bit more fresh tartness. Nice, though.

Taste is a lot sweeter than expected. Notes of vanilla and nutmeg upfront, gets caramel toffee midway, before finish is slightly boozey with a touch of honey and cherry medicine. Some orange citrus and Earl Grey notes. Definitely missing that slight Belgian edge promised on the nose.

Smooth, foamy, maybe a touch on the thin side but really very decent. Not enough flavours I really like, although the balance overall is fairly decent.
