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.

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.
