look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: This poured a hazy gold with lots of off white head.
S: It smelled like waxy and copper hops, with spicy Belgian yeast and coriander.
T: It tasted like wild flower honey and candi sugar and waxy and copper hops, with some spicy Belgian yeast and coriander. It had a mellow sweet and tart aftertaste.
M: It was a little slick with lots of fine natural carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was a great tripel, but had almost no barrel character. The scent and taste were delicate and delicious, and the body was just right. The finish was really smooth with well hidden alcohol, so it was super easy to drink. Probably best fresh. Very nice brew.

Bottle from Market Basket
Pours a brilliantly clear deep golden color with a huge rocky bone white head that persists forever. Aromas of light pepper and spice with a bit of honey and light sugary malt to back it up. Wow thats sweeter than I thought it would be. Light sugar and tart pomme fruit with lots of spices to counter. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a lightly sweet bubbly carbonic acid bite in the mouthfeel. Decent brew, not really my kind of triple, but nice to try.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

25 oz bottle, poured into a wine glass several times.

A - A bright orange-amber with lot's of carbonation visible. Good sized head formed easily, and was extremely bubbly. Beer almost glowed in the light. Nice looking beer.

S - Lot's and lot's of Belgian action. Sweet malts, raisins, peach, plum, tobacco leaves, and a general fruity smell. An ever so slight hint of alcohol. Very nice smelling beer.

T - Give Sam Adams credit. Lot's of sweet malts up front, and everything you'd expect from a Belgian. Strong hints and peach and raisin, and lot's of sweet spice. Perhaps orange peel, and maybe even cinnamon. A light amount of sweetness. As with the aroma, just a hint of booze. Very good tasting brew.

F - Heavy carbonation, a little rough on the tongue, but the beer still demands to be consumed. Very drinkable, but my rating gets taken down a bit as the beer does tend to get annoyingly sticky when it's warmed.

O - I give Sam Adams a lot of credit. I'm a big fan of theirs, but I honestly wasn't expecting this beer to be as good as it was. Very good Belgian. All the fruitiness and spiciness you expect from one, without being over the top. Highly recommend this beer for any Belgian brew fan.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a deep orange with a off white head with good head retention

S: A lot of yeast, banana, oak, fruit and spices

T: Blast of fruitiness up front with some spice and some solid malt foundation a bit yeasty and some vanilla and oak as well. swallow brings a blast of alcohol and some fruitiness along with a bit more vanilla and oak

M: Heavier side of medium on the palate with a vigorous but still fairly soft carbonation and a drying finish

O: Pleasantly surprised.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: golden orang color. a bit hazy but not quite opaque. and a creamy finger plus head that fades slowly to a lacing that covers the surface

Smell: belgian yeast. candi sugar. spices.

Taste: belgian yeast, a little bit of candi sugar. lots of spices. a small amount of oaky/wooden flavors. some alcohol but very mellow. Good flavors but nothing to spectacular

Mouthfeel: pretty dry, lots of carbonation, but tends to stick a little

Overall: a nice well done tripel. good slight oak character. but its lacking a little something that i can't quite figure out.
