COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly Tripel has patiently awaited joining the ranks of our bottle-conditioned Belgian-style ale series. It was the first festival ale for our HOP in the City beer festival which makes it dear to us. Tripel is hearty with a golden hue and a rich, fruity character. While this ale is light in color, it is fuller bodied than many darker ales. The characteristics make it a great after-dinner drink and a perfect complement to aged cheeses and fruity desserts. We age this ale for months before it touches a bottle, but, if you have the will power, it will improve for years to come.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
My Bottom Line:
A spicy and citrusy hop nose leaks onto the doughy yeast and honeyed cereals in this warming interpretation of the Tripel style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy golden.
-I found this to be a little sweeter than the usual Tripel.
-The hop personality is also herbal throughout.
-Ginger-like spiciness is clearly tasted.

Pours carbonated and golden w/little to no head. Smells sweet and slightly wheaty, and definite hints of alcohol. Taste is extremely smooth and hints of alcohol. I really like this because it doesnít have a harsh wheat finish and has a nice flavor profile. This is worth a try in my opinion.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2009
Appearance: Pours a hazy, golden body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Rather sweet-smelling aroma of pilsner malts awaiting a wheelbarrow full of toothsome candi sugar supported by notes of fresh fruit and, ever so slightly, some spices. Taste: Ample pils malts along with fresh pears, white grapes, and citrus glazed with layers upon layers of sweet, gooey candi sugar. Low bitterness. One small, tiny pinch of spice. Finishes sweet and fruity with plenty of alcohol warmth to invigorate the soul and enliven the senses. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Though Iím left wanting just a bit more spice character and a slightly drier finish, itís still a very tasty American-born tripel simply loaded with potential.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Pours a transparent deep golden with a small frothy white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity Belgian malt with some doughy yeasty esters. Starts with good fullness and carbonation with a sweet toasty biscuity malty flavor and caramel notes well balanced with some light fruity notes and clove spice before a semi-dry warming finish. A nice Belgian tripel.

Bottled. Pours a hazy yellow. Almost no aroma. Flavors of citrus fruit and grass. Finishes with a mild hoppiness. Personally, i would recommend most other tripels that i have had.
