Boston Beer Company / Samuel Adams New World Tripel

“Solid wood character includes vanilla sweet notes that mellow the light tartness from orange esters. Pineapple, cherry, and banana esters are prominent with earthy floral hops. Bready Pilsner malt and clove and pepper phenols. Finishes dry with medium-high alcohol warmth. Well-balanced for the style, though hops are very subdued.”
