Not as pale as a lot of tripels out there; there's a definite haze - I think there's some wheat in this, if I remember correctly from the SA website. Deep golden color.

The smell is, at first, a big alcohol hit (10%!) followed by some fresh pineapple and a little pear.

This carries over into the flavor, with a big alcohol edge commingling with the oak. There's a sort of valley in the middle where pear and pineapple notes fade into a herbal finish. It's just slightly skunky (Saaz).

A better tripel than some domestic versions I've tried but I'm not in too big of a hurry to buy this again.

A: Poured a from bottle into a tulip glass - gold/light amber, with a fine off white head of about 3 fingers of soapy fine bubbles and steady effervescence.

S: Mildly yeasty, Fruit (apple), a bit of acidity akin to balsamic vinegar

T: mild malty sweetness up front, a bit tart at middle and end from acidity (well carbonated to offset the maltiness, and enough hops to prevent it from being syrupy)

M: Sufficient carbonation to cleanse the palate and provide a full mouth feel

O: I was pleasantly surprised, easily one of the best domestic Belgian Style tripel I've had. Good price point for the quality. Would definitely purchase again.

Serving type: bottle

I picked this 25.4 FL OZ bottle up at the store on the way home from one of my favorite bars, Tap Room, where I had a 23 oz glass of Maredsous, which is a fav tripel of mine, as well as Real ale's Devil's BackBone which is a little too sweet if ya ask me..

I'm a big IPA guy, but this is a very good Tripel, I would definitely buy this again.. I'd give further details on the review I just happened to run into some herb named white widow if you're familiar with it, heh heh heh.. anyways, like I said, very surprising brew from Samuel Adams!

hope to update soon!

The beer comes in a deep dark golden orange color.

The aroma is quite boozy of big sweet orange, coriander, pepper, Belgian sweet breadiness, some bright sweet fruity notes.]

The flavor follows with orange, spicy notes, a Belgian candy sugar sweetness. The beer definitely shows you it's there with some big alcohol notes, but then it calms down with some heat and time. The oak eventually comes through at the end, but it's really subtle.

This is a fine tripel for those interested in something traditional tasting, but also really amped up really huge. An interesting tripel.
