From the (hard to open) bottle, it pours amber with a nice head, well burnished by the addition of a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom. Opening the bottle must have been on me, as this is definitely NOT barely carbonated. Hoppy to the nose, barely sweet on the tongue with no hop flavor. Enjoyable, easy to drink (other than opening the cork!) and dangerous!
2017 review: Yum!

A very loud pop of the cork & we are off. A hazy translucent orange with generous cream colored head. Hops dominate the aroma, heady, some spice & a little orange fragrance too. But overall not a very strong aroma. It has a fair amount of sweetness & with its fruity flavors is a bit like a soda, no bitterness or alcohol flavor. The body becomes much clearer as the head diminishes. Very nice feel. I like it. Excellent!

A - a foamy bastard, and the cork was tiny and long. Goofy airy foam several fingers worth, high clarity for a "tripel" soft orange amber tons of carbonation 3.25

S - high hops. Bitter, starchy, 2.75

T - sweet creamy malty much more true to style. 3.5

M - great mouthful. 4

D - overall adequate oddity, good for a macro. Had to go back and take away a point due to the disproportionately strong hangover this beer caused.2.5

Above average triple, good for an American , nice aroma and taste, right in the ballpark. Appearance and palate are below par, but passable. I’d put this as equal to Leffe.

A very fruit and spice-heavy aroma with pale tone that, if not for the clinging foam, you might mistake as a champagne. That carries over considerably in the flavor, with a decent amount of carbonation and acidity to boot. An impressive and flavorful offering.

I grabbed this 750mL bottle of Sam Adam’s Golden Tripel called New World. It has a whopping 10%ABV and promises to be delicious. It says on the front label “a golden tripel with notes of spice and tropical fruits”. I carefully untwisted the black skirt and then eased the champagne cork out of the bottle leading to a loud pop and carbonation fumes twisting and wafting out of the bottle neck.

Look-It pours a heavy head which is thick and creamy with large bubbles. The lacing is persistent and silky and coats the glass all the way down. Its color and appearance are beautiful. I see the slightest haze from what is otherwise a crystal clear orange golden yellow. It has light golden overtones on top of the orange glow.

Smell-It smells complex. It smells bready and yeasty as well as fruity and sweet. I can even smell the alcohol on this beast! I smell spices as well. It has a nice bouquet that seeps out of it easily…just be sure to pour into a worthy glass.

Taste-It has a deep and rich flavor. It is a bit sweet, but it is cut nicely with the strong alcohol content and impressive carbonation. I taste nutmeg, cinnamon, apricot, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, cherries, fire roasted walnuts, clove, coriander, yeast, buttered bread, honey glazed squash, and pure Belgian yeasts. The malts are strong and plentiful and then there is an appropriately timed bite from the hops at the end that also coats the tongue in a nice lingering layer.

Mouthfeel-The mouthfeel is full-bodied and creamy. It is a little bit sticky at the end as the alcohol warms and the palate is continuously coated with the lingering hop oils and some of the sugars from the plethora of malts. Absolutely delicious.

Overall-I could definitely see myself drinking one of these baby’s in the middle of a cold winter while sitting in front of a fire place or watching Netflix. I love Ommegang’s Tripel Perfection better, but this one is also great! Cheers!
