look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a yellowish orange color with a 1/4" head that falls to a spotty surface foam.

Smell: citrus, yeast, and some spice comes through to the nose.

Taste: some soft caramel,lemon zest, pineapple, pepper, some yeast, a hint of vanilla, a warming alcohol, and a nice bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crsip from start to finish, with some drying late. Aftertaste is long lived.

Overall: slow drinking beer. It is full of flavor and it is enjoyable overall.

bottle picked up at the boston brewery during the summer. POP!!! goes the cork. Large white moon crater head with good retention. Reduces to a nice silky cap. Hazy gold shines in my tuluip glass. Nose and taste is full of crackery goodness. Alchohol knocks on the front door. Light spice and pepper. A bit of dark fruit, perhaps plum. light to medium bodied.

Appearance- by far one of the most perfect appearances I have seen in a long time, its really just beautiful, nice bubbles stream so nice up the glass and thick foam head stands for long period time just really as flawless appearance you could see

Smell- very nice nose for the belgian triple style, nice yeast citrus tones, spot on for the style, not getting alot the oak but really nice nose

taste- up front starts sweet but has really nice spice on the finish keeping it balanced, nice spice sweetness, and just so balanced really hard even notice a real flaw, if you like this style its real spot on, i dont get alot of the oak but its all coming together in general

mouthfeel- very creamy and very smooth, enjoyable

Drinkability/overall- i have to say really perfectly drinkable and so balanced, spot on beer and one the most impressed I have ever been by sam adams, just really good stuff and I highly recommend trying this if you like tripels, wheres the 10 %?

Enjoyed in a goblet

A: pours a slightly hazy yellow to orange color with ample carbonation bubbles and a single finger of fine white head that lingers nicely and leaves a nice thin layer of lacing on the glass
S: in the nose im sensing pineapple, just as the tag on the bottle indicated, as well as a nice peppery or spicy note
T: a nice taste with pineapple in the beginning and left on the palate at the end, the middle hits with somewhat of a musty character which overall helps to mellow out the extremes on both ends and makes it more balanced
M: a bit heavy on the carbonation although as far as i can tell this is typical of the style, leaves the mouth but a slight amount of tartness
O: a nice brew, pretty good for the style, might be a tinge to extreme on the pineapple notes and carbonation but overall it was a good drinking brew with nice flavor notes and character

Cloudy yellow with a big head rich with carbonation. Big fruity hop character that blends well with a big amount of bubble gum yeast aroma. Flavor is crisp with a fruity/sour tingle upfront. Medium body but rich with bready malt sweetness and bitter/sour apple, bubblegum and tropical fruits. Light refreshing finish with a lot of the fruity hops and subtle notes of yeast lingering. I would gladly drink this often if it was cheaper.

A: The beer is slightly hazy dark golden yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of fruits and herbs in the nose—pineapple seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has additional hints of spices.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is quite easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.
