Sam Adams New World: Quite possibly the most disappointing beer I have tasted in my life!!! This Trippel pours golden with a beautiful head and lace but the beauty stops there! The aroma is strong with herbal and citrus overtones but the taste is over the top in clove and spice with a slight hint of pineapple. The lingering taste on the front of the tongue is comparable to the after taste of dental novacaine while the back of the tongue is left wondering what it did to deserve this! SA needs to go back to what they do best, traditional crafted beers! (556 characters)

This was my first Triple experience, and although I enjoy Sam Adams on the whole, this one I just don't get.

It tastes like alcohol flat out. I suppose there is some beginning to some fruit tones and you can tell something complex is being attempted, but again, it tastes like alcohol.

Triples of course are made with the concept of using an obscene amount of malts. Ok, fair enough, I love IPA's for their obscene use of hops, but malts, for me anyway just aren't as flavorful. The result is a giant malt taste,,, and alcohol. If you love malt, malt, and more malt, then cheers.

The look and feel is still there, very reminecient of my favorite Sam Adams Barrel Room beer, 13th Hour. The quality is that good. I just simply don't like what's being attempted, but have no problems with the execution. (803 characters)

750ml bottle poured into a chalice. I purchased this beer well over a year ago, but there is nothing on the bottle to indicate a bottling date, save for a code that reads '0970'. I will look into this. I will also note that this bottle was stored in proper cellar conditions for the duration of its time in my possession.

A: Pours a clear golden-orange color. Even after pouring aggressively barely ant head forms, and what does fizzles out immediately. Minute specs of lacing are the only evidence that it was ever even there.

S: Tart green apple skin and funk right up front. Cider vinegar and barnyard. Strong esters of pear. Subtle yeasty spice. Doughy malt base.

T: Cider vinegar up front in a big way. Green apple tartness is subdued. Malts bring a solid backbone of bread crust, toast, and dough. Honeyed granola and woody vanilla. Pretty sweet overall. A hollow, ghostly spicy hop taste is all thatvremains of the saaz. Funky and fruity toward the back end. Pear esters. Slight spike of alcohol. Drying finish with a light funk.

M: Round and creamy. Unfortunately it is also completely flat. Lack of carbonation makes it seem a little too weighty.

O: I've heard that this is a pretty respectable beer, but this did not withstand the test of time at all. Wild yeasts or 'bugs', intentional or not, really took this beer in the wrong direction. At this point it's more like a very mediocre wild ale an a triple. (1,423 characters)

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. (190 characters)

Grabbed a bottle of this for the pre Thanksgiving onslaught of drinking. Poured in to a Duvel glass, New World Tripel is a mildly hazy orange color, with a very large three fingers of white heading. Head fades quickly enough. From the smell I detect some dry champagne qualities, some hops, a dusty, cellar like presence, and a tiny hint of fruit. Taste is again, dry, with some pear and apple skin in the finish. Taste can be somewhat soapy at times, but leaves a pretty tasty aftertaste. Body is about medium, and right on target for the style as far as carbonation goes. This beer scores some extra points for the way in which the alcohol is hidden. You really cannot taste that ten percent, though you can feel it after a few pulls. Overall I am a little disappointed considering this came from their barrel room. There is nothing off putting about it, I just find it a little bit boring. It is well balanced, but nothing really jumps out at me that would make me buy it again. Cheers to Sam Adams for this series, but I cannot give this beer a recommendation. (1,064 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass, temperature at consumption was the recommended 50 degrees.

Appearance - Poured a golden color with a nice white head that settled quickly leaving good, lasting lacing.

Smell - Strong spice notes with a hint of fruit.

Taste - Strong spice taste upon initial taste, with a flat ending. Seems to be missing something at the end. Also has a lot of apple, almost cidery taste. I don't really taste the oak which is disappointing since this is a "barrel series" beer. The alcohol content is well hidden behind the fruit and spice taste.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation makes it tingly in the mouth, which is nice since it is a more fruity beer.

Drinkability - This is not a beer I would want to drink a lot of. For me, its apply taste is too sweet and strong. A hoppy end would have been nice to counter the sweetness. Being a fan of Belgian Tripels, it is good; but their are others that are better.

Its not bad, but I wouldn't recommend it unless it was to someone like me, who is looking to try all types of different beers. (1,074 characters)

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a nice big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit is quite dominant with some sweet Belgian malt notes. Taste is really dominated by some notes of tropical fruit with some notes of Belgian malt with light candi sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but too much tropical fruit for my own taste – kind of hard to figure out this was a tripel. (472 characters)

Careful twist of the pliers on the cork and ka-boom! Big spew but that didn't seem to disgorge too much of the actual beer. More of a regular foamy pour in the Ommegang chalice. Amber color with lots of bubbles rising.

Fruity smell is quite intense. I don't usually complain about too much carbonation but this is one of those rare instances where it's just too much carbonic power and a harsh sensation with the tongue attacked by bubbles at every sip. Very sweet and fruity but tangy at the same time, like frozen apple juice concentrate. Hot with alcohol. Reminds me of one of those Italian lemon liqueurs.

Ultimately this borders on undrinkable. Maybe I can mix it with a flabby witbier. From the 500 ml bottle bought at Baron's Marketplace in San Diego. (760 characters)

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium amber color, decent head of white foam that settles and vanishes relatively quickly. Light carbonation.

Smell: Fruit, alcohol, some floral notes, candi sugar. Something behind that smells a little off-putting, but I can't place it and it's minor enough not to detract overly.

Taste: The alcohol is apparent almost immediately. This gives way to banana, citrus, light hops, spices. But the alcohol never leaves the stage.

Mouthfeel: Bracing, medium body, scouring.

Overall: Overall, not too bad. There are much better tripels out there, but this one is worth a try. (588 characters)

Thanks to Jlindros for the chance to try these. Split with a few friends the other night.

Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a small white head. Excellent retention and lacing. What else would you expect from a Sam Adams beer?

Smells faintly of fruits - wild berries probably. Estery yeast presence and light floral notes. Nothing really aggressive or outstanding here, but alcohol is noticeable. Sugary fruits in the taste with some booze. Yeast character is substantial lending some spiciness and peppercorn. Sweet overall, but yet again, fairly conservative.

Carbonation levels seem a bit high to me, But this helps with the alcohol presence. Medium bodied and somewhat coating mouthfeel. Not extremely drinkable for 10%, but tolerable.

This is a solid effort in the first of a real limited edition series for Sam Adams. It is clearly a conservative offering, aiming to appeal to more wide audiences while still exploring a new territory. Although I am not a giant fan of this style, I still find this brew to be lacking an assertiveness that would incite me to purchase it again. Still, I am glad to have had the chance to try it. (1,143 characters)

Review adapted from notes taken 3/31/2010

Appearance: Golden orange, decent head - very clear for a tripel

Smell: Spices and Belgian yeast funk - it smells like it wants to be aged to mellow out - loads of esters, sugar, alcohol, some pale malts in the background

Taste: I described this as a "yeast explosion" in my notes - very heavy on the Belgian yeast - lots of ripe banana, other esters, alcohol - kind of sweet and kind of tart - a lot of spices, including some that seem like they would be better suited to a pumpkin ale

Mouthfeel: Smooth, moderate body - on the dry side with some alcoholic heat - good

Overall: Heavy on the alcohol and the yeast - should mellow over time, but fresh this is best shared

First off, I must say that this doesn't taste at all like a Samuel Adams brew. I am glad that the Boston Beer Company tried something new with the "Barrel Room Collection." It's interesting. When consumed fresh, this is a good, but not great, beer. I think it would improve with some cellaring. (1,013 characters)

Poured in Chimay goblet

A: Bright golden and clear, with a fizzy white head that recedes pretty quickly and laces just a little bit
S: Smells just like a tripple, nothing surprising. Malt and Belgian esters, not much else
T: Pretty standard tripple. Kinda malty-sweet on the forefront, a bit of bitterness on the aftertaste. I don’t get the “funk” SA is talking about in this one, nor the “tropical notes,” it’s a very standard tripple. Not bad, better than some, not as good as others. Very middle of the road.
M: Thin fizziness to the carbonation, tickles the tongue. Pretty thin feeling overall.
D: Pretty easily drinkable, hides it’s 10% well. (662 characters)

"A golden tripel with notes of spice and tropical fruit." 1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with fantastic design, classy label art, and branded hood-and-wire cap (aka cage) over a branded cork acquired at me local HEB grocery and served into an Avery stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are high. #643.

Served cold - straight from me fridge - and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

That cork is really wedged in there. Took me a full 2 minutes to open by hand.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a three finger wide white colour head of nice thickness. Decent frothiness. A bit of creaminess. Not as soft a complexion as it could be. Fluffy consistency. Head retention is superb for the high ABV - about 7-8 minutes. Spotty lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a dull hazy orange-yellow. Nontransparent. Semitranslucent. No yeast particles are visible.

Not unique or special. There are no egregious flaws. It's generally appealing.

Sm: Clean estery spicy yeast notes are surprisingly complex. Saison-like white pepper is a highlight. Belgian pale malts. Banana. Clove. Biscuit malt. Light hints of fleeting tropical fruit - light mango and passionfruit. I love that the fruity character is so well presented; it's not too sticky or sweet and is consistent with the clean Belgian feel of the style. Light candi sugar. Some grassy notes. Honeysuckle. Floral hop character complements the rest of the notes without going overboard. Crackery malts. Nicely flowery. The spices really complement the fruit nicely. Superb subtlety; it's hard to identify specific fruits and spices because they blend so seamlessly into the malty base. A soft pleasant aroma of surprisingly light strength.

T/Mf: Belgian pale malts, pilsner malts, and some honey provide the foundation for this beer. There's ample spice here for a tripel: coriander, clove, wisps of white pepper, and honeysuckle. Belgian candi sugar. Golden malts. There's also plenty of fruit, maybe a bit too much as it veers into sticky sweetness territory a bit too much for my tastes, and also gains some alcohol warmth. Mango, pineapple (ugh...), pear, apple, and peach. I thought I would love its saison leanings, but they just don't work here, especially alongside the booziness. The sweetness is a bit syrupy too, which is bothersome. Plenty of esters. I do love that the yeast character comes through with some biscuity and spicy notes. Too sweet.

It's complex, but it's also kind of a mess, with little regard for balance. There's some subtlety here, but it isn't intricate or well layered. Lacks nuance. Below average depth of flavour. Average duration and intensity of flavour. It comes on a bit too strong for a tripel; Trappist beers in the style don't require this level of intensity to succeed. Should be more mellow. It's a nontraditional build for the style, and while I always applaud experimentation, this doesn't quite work like it should. That said, I do think it's a better attempt at a tripel than most American attempts I've tried.

Not gestalt, but very cohesive.

Coarse and dry in an unbecoming manner for the style. Too thick and full-bodied. Subpar presence on the palate; it's overwhelming and lacks the delicacy of traditional Trappist beers in the style. Could be softer and more approachable. Doesn't really suit the flavour profile all that well. Overcarbonated. Unrefreshing.

Not oily, astringent, harsh, or rough. Sharp - especially for a tripel.

The oak aging hardly comes through at all in the flavour profile. I wouldn't notice any oak if I tried it blind, and what little there is when I search for it is very faint and weak. Oak tones should guide the flavour profile and lend it more natural cohesion, but fail to do so here. I do pick up some faint vanilla in the background.

Ultimately, I really have trouble with some of the essential decisions here - a tripel with notes of tropical fruit? Call me a traditionalist, but I don't think the Trappist monks were going for mango and pineapple in their tripels. I'm a big fan of pushing boundaries, but the Trappist styles might be best left to the masters.

Dr: It's a sipper without having to be. Way too boozy for the style. It's not the fragile delicate tripel put out by the Trappists by any stretch. A pretty decent American try at the style, but ultimately it's a swing and a miss. I'm curious what would happen to it with 3-4 years of age. Best split with friends.

It's an interesting brew with some nice orchard fruit notes and saison-esque white pepper.

Discerning drinkers will find it unnecessarily boozy with awkward tendencies towards unbecoming tropical fruit notes. Additionally, the lack of discernable oak is suspect - how long was this aged on oak?

I bought a 750ml bottle from Wegmans for $9.99, poured into a Duvel tulip glass. I wasn't sure what to expect from a tripel by Sam Adams. It had slightly more hoppy bitterness and alcohol taste than I would have liked, but it also has some nice fruity and spicy (cloves?) notes. Overall, I enjoyed drinking it but there are much better tripels available with a lower price tag at the same store, so I doubt I will try it again. (427 characters)

Pours a dark cloudy yellow with a big white head. Foam lasts a while but eventually melts into a ring. Smell is very fruity. Reminiscent of fruit cocktail. Taste is also sweet and fruity with an unusual finish. Out of place. Maybe a spice? Nice mouthfeel and carbonation.

Overall a nice beer. Great effort by Sam Adams folks. But thre are a lot of better Tripels out there. (375 characters)

750ml bottle from the brewery in Boston.

Phenomenal appearance - golden with just a little haze and a large, lacey, and well-retained white head.

Aroma is grainy and a little sweet with tropical fruit and floral notes and yeast.

Flavor is very sweet and fruity. Mango and pineapple, sweet pale malt, a little oak, and floral hops. Only slightly Belgian.

Medium-bodied and fairly dry but still sweet with a good carbonation level. Decent overall, but not too impressive for a barrel-aged tripel. (498 characters)

No freshness dating.

A= Pours a nice hazy looking light amber color. It looks like an apple cider almost maybe a little lighter. The head is a nice two fingers high with lots of activity and stil some solid retention. The lacing is about average.

S= The smell is a nice funk wih some spicy pepperyness. There is a little bit of a granny smith tart apple sort of smell in it with a spicy clove sort of aroma buried in there.

T= The taste is big on the pepper character and there is a nice sort of wheaty character to finish. There is a nice spice character that is typical of a tripel. The cosmic mother funk is a little hidden and actually falls in the back a little with a funky sort of finish.

M= Well carbonated.

O= This is a solid beer but not the best tripel by any stretch. The funky character is nice but it's a little too quiet. The oak doesn't come through at all and I just don't get "barrel aged funky tripel" from it. Maybe my expectations were a little high seeing as how I've loved the other two I've had from this series. (1,042 characters)

I though this was a big winner until I got to the tasting.
The color is deep gold with a big pure white fluffy head. Lots of carbonation out of the bottle.
The smell is class tripel very sweet
The taste is just overpowered by the alcohol.
It has a creamy full feel.
this is an ok tripel but there are too many good and great tripels to get this again. (352 characters)

Bought this as part of the set when I went to the Brewery Last year. This brew pours out as a hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head that had a pretty good retention. The aroma of the beer is basically like any other Tripel out there but not quite as strong smelling. There is some spices the come through and there are also some fruity scents too. The funk level on the nose isn't very high. The taste doesn't give off much funk either from the wild yeast. The fruity flavors taste decent for a Tripel and the spices do the same was well. The mouthfeel was light to medium and was fairly easy to drink. Glad I got to try it! (629 characters)

From a bottle into a snifter

Beer is opaque yellow/orange with 1 finger of white foam and thin lace left behind.

Smell is clove and bananas also get yeast, malts and hops.

Taste is bitter with banana and spice. Nice yeast but not too much to make it unsinkable. Also a bit of sugary sweetness

Overall not bad. Feel leaves a bit to be desired. I would like flavors to stick around a bit longer. This beer could be more smooth as well. (440 characters)

750ml bottle purchased as a single from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA. Corked & caged.

Poured into a DFH tulip, formed a 1 1/2" off-white head above the slightly cloudy burnished gold brew. Airy head falls slowly with spotty large hunks of lacing. Aroma is tart with a lightly sweet undercurrent.

Taste begins with a peek of tart, then pale sweetness. Dry in the middle, with a lightly alcoholic close. Tannins seems to come of the forefront after the swallow. Mouthfeel is smooth to start, with a bit of a rough close, with drinkability alright. Some good components here, but it just doesn't all come together for me. (622 characters)

750ml caged and corked (and oddly tapered bottle), shared with Rich and Sam.

Uncorks with a sucking thunk, and pours a pleasantly clear but deep, dark golden colour, with a massive head fed by lots of carbonation. Body is pretty heavy, but fluid, and the carbonation, while slightly static when tilted, it pretty coarse. Some streaking lace. Looks okay.

Nose is odd. Some estery notes, but a rather pronounced wort character as well, and a suggestion of solvent.Yeast notes are rather muted overall, and the sweetness is higher than I expected. There's also a hint of wood, which actually doesn't work all that well with the other things going on. Okay, but not great.

Taste is a little better: here the extra sweetness at least gives a bit of body to hide the booziness. Mild chewing gum flavours on the mid palate with a suggestion of bright hops or spices—perhaps a touch of feijoa. Finish is mild: the spicy note of booze never gets to be too much. In the end, it's pretty tasty, although not as complex or impressive as all the fanfare and packaging makes it out to be.

Feel is pretty good: slick but light, while supporting the booziness so it doesn't get too intense.

Overall, this is fairly solid stuff. I've had Tripels that are almost undrinkable because of the solvent booze, and this is certainly better crafted than they are. This is smooth for the most part, and relatively drinkable. Not something I'd particular go out of my way to try again, but certainly something worth trying once. (1,508 characters)

This beer seems to be getting a lot of good reviews, I'm going to have to offer a dissenting opinion. I've had several tripels and it is one of my favorite beer styles. This one doesn't seem to stack up for me.

This particular bottle was bought at the Brewery during a tour. The bottle is a unique "smoke stack" shaped corked 750. Great packaging, I'd love to see more small run corked SAs.

I poured this beer in my Duvel glass and it offered a great appearance; a big foamy head, great lacing and a enticing cloudy bright Orange. A great looking tripel in every way.

The smell is when I realized this would be a mediocre tripel. Big and boozy, the smell of alcohol masked whatever sweet clove and Belgian yeast smell a tripel should have. It was there but faint.

The taste was big and boozy as well. Not much flavor, sweet and alcoholic with some faint clove and fruity tastes.

The mouth-feel was big creamy and sryuppy as boozy Belgian beers often are.

For a beer with a 10% beer it went down easily, not to filling nor drying.

As with Golden Monkey by Victory this beer speaks to me of mediocre attempts to make a Belgian beer by an American Craft brewers. Sweet and boozy with a faint resemblance to a Belgian beer. A special offering by Sam Adams and was glad I tried it, but it doesn't stack up to other tripels.

I'll stick to La Fin Du Monde and Chimay Cinq Cents for my favorite Tripels. (1,407 characters)

Poured from corked and caged bottle into tulip. Beer is amber, crystal clear, with aggressive carbonation showing. The nose is ripe mango, peach, and vanilla. Tropical fruit on the tongue, with pepper, some vanilla, and a noticeable alcohol presence. Slick mouthfeel. Interesting tripel, perhaps a tad rough. (308 characters)

Pours a pleasant semi-cloudy honey color with a thin lacing, lightly carbonated. It maintains an island of foam in the middle as many tripels do. Nose is rather light, a bit astringency feeds in but not much else. Taste is light but good, light malty sweets with a backdrop of alcohols that isn't too prevalent but enough to know you're drinking a rather high octane beer. Goes down easy, not much lingering except for a little bit of yeastiness. Overall, a good tripel option if you're going for tripel but don't want it to be as heavy. (537 characters)
