Amber in color with excellent clarity. Vibrant carbonation bubbles are present. There's a half inch of tightly knit off white head. Strong aroma of light Belgian candy sugar and pale malt. There's plenty of light fruity tastes like a touch of raspberries and cheery. Pale malt and light candy sugar are also very much present. The mouth is heavily carbonated and bone dry.

Excellent finish on this Belgian. Similar to a lambic. Golden color with a spice up front and a fruity end. Good stuff.

Disappointing tripel for the price. Try Sam Adams' Stoney Brook Red instead; way better than this offering.

Looks and feels like a tripel. It has a dull, overly sweet aroma without eliciting any particular flavors. It may become more complex with aging, but my initial impression is not a good one.

It's hard to think of Sam Adams as a "microbrewer" anymore, but they make some good beers. This is the first time I have come across this one and I was very pleasantly surprised. It checks all the boxes, looks great, nice big foamy head with good lacing, perfect mouthfeel, great flavor. The alcohol is well hidden. Overall just a very nice beer.

Very good taste. Not a Belgian Ale, missing the tastes of Belgium.
Good ABV, nothing is overpowering about it.
Drank from Bottle.
