COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2004 Hops in the City festival beer. Fruity, spicy, aromas and flavors contribute to the complexity of this Belgian ale. Medium body and effervescence contribute to a light, dry impression, despite its substantial strength and sweet, smooth finish.

Great, big beer. Had on tap at their tap room in St Louis. Rated with another app.

Pours cloudy orange with a medium white head. Smells bready, fruity, and a touch spicy. Taste is light fruits and subtle spiciness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and fizzy mouth-carbonation, Schlafly Grand Cru finishes with a spicy tingle.

Aroma is yeast/spicy and fruit. The flavor is yeast, bananas, spicy and a good malt backbone. Very good BSA.

Very nice exhaltation when I popped the cap on this brew. Big head of white bubbles that reduces kind of slowly. Decent carbonation. Lots of fruit (pear and apple) and yeasty notes. Light bit of spice and lots of carbonation in the nose. Color is lighter than I expected. Kind of a medium gold in color. Wow, pretty big alcohol presence with some more light fruit, white grape and pear, some spices and light grainy malts. Very smooth and a bit fizzy in the mouth. I am starting to really like these Schlafly brews. Finishes clean and warming with some lingering fruit. A pretty darn good brew.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice, no freshness date.

A: Very slightly hazy amber body with small carbonation bubbles steadily rising to the creamy thick white head. This is a great looking beer!

S: Iím only smelling yeast presence. A slightly chalky and ripe banana aroma is prominent, mild cloves. This smells good, but a bit weak.

T: The intro doesnít have much going on but the yeast quickly comes in and makes itís presence known giving a slightly chalky flavor with lots of fruit of bananas and some strawberries transforming into a dry medicinal cherry finish with mildly warming spices lingering on my tongue after the sip. I am enjoying this, the yeast is highly showcased here and itís doing a good job.

M: Very fizzy creamy body with mildly sharp carbonation here. This feels good going down.

O: This is a good beer, Iím not sure why the low ratings but Iím enjoying this very much so. Thereís a good amount going on in this that keeps me interested and nothing is immensely overpowering the next. I like this!

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, bright, orange-gold body with a fizzy inch of white head. Smell: Fragrant fusion of juicy fruits paired with top-notch wine liberally coated with sugars rules the nose with the light, delicate maltiness tucked far, far in back. Taste: Toothsome candy sweetness envelops lesser tastes of bready malts and toasted barley. A few sliced peaches and dried figs. Refill! Splash of Essencia Orange Muscat dessert wine garnished with honeysuckle. Meager hint of hops and bitterness. Slight background yeast component. Some alcohol warmth on the fruity, downright winey finish. Refill! Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Moderate carbonation, certainly on the effervescent side of things. Drinkability: A fine, fun beer! For me, the alcohol was quite well hidden, making this one very drinkable, even downright chuggable.

Bottle. Hazy golden body under a foamy white head. Aroma is nutty, esters, sweet, banana. Flavor is orange, banana, clove, bubblegum. Effervescent mouthfeel. Quite good!

Shag (2561) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2013
This poured a golden color with a white carbonated head. The aroma contains some citrus, spices, and herbal notes. The flavor is rather sour with more citrus, bananas, ginger, and spices. The mouthfeel is very carbonated. Overall this is not sweet at all, more dry and funky than anything. A good beer!

Drake (7955) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2013
750 bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of raisin, caramel, toast and almost some woody notes. The taste is bread, caramel, vanilla, spice, dry fruits. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Solid.
