Near perfection for a Tripel (my favorite style of beer). I was shocked to discover Sam Adams even out-classed St Bernardus Tripel. This is truly as close as a Tripel can get to perfect for me.

This is one hefty bottle with cork and cage, and the cork was not easy to open which I suppose is a good thing if your looking to age it.

A light gold color with amber-ish hues, slight haze and classic rushing carbonation directly from the middle which creates a nearly perfect 2" inch high all-white head showing good activity with slow retention.

The aroma is very complex, zippy and tart fruity esters pop right out with sharp lemmons toned downed by a crispy wheat and bunches of dry-earthy aroma's. Slightly musty wheat and fruits with honey-like sweetness and some vodka type heat. The oak aroma really pops and certainly adds depth to all aroma's along with several spices and pepper! but also in the heat tingle. This is easily one of the most complex aroma's for a Tripel, very bold...worth contemplating for sure.

The flavor is without a doubt sublime. Bold, brash flavor's, crispy honey-sweet malt and a yeasty complexity that pushes the limits. The yeast baffles explanation at first with massive dry earthy tones and musty, spicey...grandma's spice rack!! subtle banana's and cloves, red fruits and a snappy bite from 10% heat. The flavor's eventhough it's very, very complex has a wonderful balance.

The feel is simply amazing with snappy, slightly hot and dry medium bodied feel, good bite and a full, smooth finish. a lushous and wonderful mouthfeel.

This is exactly the kind of brew that I'm all about right now, Belgian Tripel and Farmhouse ale's are "in" for me big time and this one hits the spot. a wonderous brew.

Really good triple with notes of spice, sweet and zen good vibes--- bravo!! Puts copper amber hue with lacey small head that fades fast. Nice tight carbonization.

This one pours a nicely ruby tinted rich golden color that a nice off white rich head that is long lived, settles slow and leaves good lacing down the glass.

The nose is fruity and pleasant with spiced notes that remind me a tad of all spice, there are nice bread tones and some alcohol. A mild but very pleasant nose here.

The taste is exceptional and definitely fruity, but not overly sweet. The flavor is a nicely done malt with woody notes that has a mild hopped experience that balances nicely with a complex array woody malts and spices.

The mouthfeel is silky and rick as a Belgian style should be, just right for this style.

Overall this is an exceptional offering from Samuel Adams and a real treat. This one is one of the best in their entire line up. I highly recommend trying this one.
