Pours a clean deep yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a small fruit note and a candy sugar sweetness. In the taste, a small fruitiness and a bit sweet to a bigger dry presence, with some alcohol in the end. A small bite and a medium to to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry candy sugar and small alcohol in the aftertaste. A really nice representation of style, a bit sweet, but very nice.

Serving type: on-tap

I opened this after sharing a bottle of 75 minute. That beer set the bar pretty high for the evening. I paired it with an adobo chicken and various other grilled items (bread, peppers, clams).

This is a pretty good looking beer. Light brown with a fluffy head that settles into a halo. The halo stays for the whole time while drinking the beer. I don't know if this counts for the appearance, but I like this bottle. It really doesn't fit my wine chiller or beer fridge, but it looks really cool. I'm saving this bottle for my basement collection.

The tropical notes in the beer worked well with the adobo. I like how the fruit paired with the vinegar in the sauce.

The only negative note is that there was some very conspicuous alcohol presence in this beer. It really stands out in smell and taste. You know that this is a 10% before the first sip.

I wouldn't call this a must have beer, but it was different and good all of the while.

a group of us shared this taste treat. It was poured into a sample type glass. It has a nice golden straw color body, with a little white fizzy head that disappears quickly to a thin lace around the edge of the glass. The smell is of spice and a little banana comes threw. The taste starts off sweet(almost bubble gum), then it gets a spicy(clove and white pepper). The mouth feel is good. Overall i think this a beer to try if you get the chance.

New World Tripel (Barrel Room Collection)
Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams)
Style: Tripel
ABV: 10.00 %

LOOK: Pale yellow, with a bone white silky head that has decent staying power.

SMELL: Aroma of bubblegum, clove, banana, dusty yeast, and pear. Appealing aroma of a standard tripel.

TASTE: Mild Belgian notes of banana, clove, bubblegum and white pepper. There is a creamy aspect to this beer as well as soft fruit which was nice. Alcohol chimes in but not as much as it could have for a 10% beer.

FEEL: Medium bodied, creamy, smooth, well carbonated, pretty solid feel.

OVERALL: I was glad to get to try this brew. A testament to the brewers of Boston Beer Co, a nice little tripel here with all the right notes. Pretty good!
