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!

A - Pours a hazy light orange with a one finger foamy head. Dissipates to a nice cap and a sticky lacing.

S - A heavy yeast scent takes up the foreground, almost peat-like, a lot of smokiness. Starts to have a sweet citrus show through as it warms up a bit.

T - Starts off with a peach, followed by grape, citrus, and yeast. A smokiness shows at the back of the palate. The aftertaste is tangy with a subtle grape. The yeatiness lingers.

M - Medium mouthfeel with a heavy carbonation, slightly syrupy.

O - An interesting beer that is certainly worth trying. The medley of flavors on different parts of your palate makes this a very interesting drink. The aroma could use more depth like the flavor and less fizz would help accentuate the taste profile. Nice to try at least once, especially if you have a couple friends to share a bottle with.

Served in a tulip. Pours an orange hue with a semi-hazy clarity and a two inch, rocky, white head. Some spots and strands of lacing revealed during the tasting. Nose expresses light, fruity esters, candi sugar, a hint of spice and a grassy quality. Taste follows nose; however, its all comes together a bit muted. There's a bit of alcohol bite at the finish and there is also a slight earthiness and a suggestion of pit fruit. Mouthfeel is light-medium n consistency with a lively carbonation and a residual tingle at the finish. Overall, a surprisingly solid tripel that hits all the style markers.
