Appearance: golden-orange body, effervescent; huge frothy off-white head, long lasting, good lacing

Smell: malty; sweet; peppery; faint Belgian yeast; I can smell the "Tropical Fruit" as on the label, but I couldn't tell you what kind

Taste: Malty with a good bit of Tripel sugary sweetness; very well balanced and extremely tasty; finishes sweet with just the right amount of hop bitterness lingering; this is a great beer

Mouthfeel: creamy, almost syrupy, but thin enough it's appropriate for the style

Remarks: best Sammy Adams I've ever had

Pears, apples, spicy hops and alcohol. A very good beer on a cold November day. An excellent beer on a hot summer day.

the quality here is enormous, its rich smooth creamy beer with a vibrant Belgian yeast strain and a ton of grain character at its base, but for my palate, it was too sweet to drink much of, although that doesn't at all diminish my appreciation for it. hazy blonde, obviously viscous, but also supremely well carbonated, amassing a several inches high white impenetrable head on top. the nose and taste show a ton of candy sugar left over, oats in the body, and the oak adding a vanilla and pear sweetness to this thing. its sweet double jeopardy, but I still dig it for being as enormous as it is and not showing its booze, for bringing oak into the fold so well, and for offering a beer this good at such a fair price. round in feel, huge body, sticky sweet, but its aided in drinkability by all the bubbles. wheat is fresh, yeast is amazingly bold in flavor and capacity to survive the potential energy of this thing, and expressive in a new way for a Belgian tripel. while not my personal favorite, I really admire this beer, and indeed this entire barrel room project from sam adams.

L: Nice clear golden color. Big whitish billowy foam swells and takes several minutes to recede.

S: Nutmeg and cloves. Wheat bread. Sweet with a tangy spiciness.

T: Malty and sweet with a tropical melon and mango. Mushroom and decaying pine adds a funky twang rounding out the sweetness. Long greasy and old bruised banana flavor lingers long on the palate with a little white pepper. Mild oakiness and definitely a note of peat moss through the finish.

F: Big rich flavors rounded out by an extremely clear feel. I love the light body and the carbonation finishes nice and clean with only a small residual sugary feeling.

O: Quite nice. I like the yeastiness and the spice is nice, albeit maybe a little on the strong side. And the sweetness finishes a bit strong for me. But I'm just being overly critical, it's tasty and rich but might be better in my opinion if it were toned down just a scosche. Maybe 9.5%.
