3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at Party Source. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; doughy, yeasty, and a little spicy with a hint of apple. Tastes like it smells, minus the apple. Average on the palate. A solid example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Clear golden with an active body sustaining a quarter inch of bubbles. Mild aroma of white grape bubblegum, resin, banana and earthy apples. Taste is toffee, apple, and white grape with the earthy must. Light-medium body has medium-high carbonation and finishes with a great balance driven by the delicate hop and yeast dryness of a good Tripel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a mildly hazed golden color. The head is a two finger white shade that does a good job of staying around. This one really looks at home in a Duvel tulip.
S: There is quite a bit of spicy yeast and grassy hops on the nose. Also noted are some characteristics of grape, apple, and pear. Pretty typical for the style. Still, Schlafly did a good job of pulling off the distinctive notes.
T: A fruity sweetness is the first thing noted - this has a strong cherry quality to it that the nose didnít indicate. Later on, notes of (well handled) butterscotch and earthy hops help to balance out the apple/pear/cherry qualities; after a while, citrusy hints enter the palate, as well. Itís fairly sweet, yet well balanced all the same.
M: This one could be dryer, and in fact, probably should be. Also a bit under-carbonated. I kind of hoped that the hops would cleanse some of the sweetness a little better, but itís still quite easy to drink.
O: I reckon this one is a little too sweet to be in Duvelís pantheon, but that doesnít mean itís not good. Really, this is the kind of brew I want to be drinking on a warm day like this one. A solid BPA that could benefit from a few tweaks.

Tastes of bubblegum and black pepper. Nice, but nothing too different or special. Virtually no hops and not overly complex.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled on 3/25/13. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both OK. Aroma is fruity and spicy, it smells like pears, Belgian yeast, apricots, straw and bready malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also some cloves, apples, candy sugar and coriander noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit coating and has moderate carbonation. I like this brew, itís nice and tasty. Too bad I only bought a single bottle of this, Iíll buy a 6-pack next time. $2.75 a single at Liquor Barn.
