3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
growler from the tap room. this american triple pours very clean with a brilliant golden honey color. Minimal white head forms on top of the brew before fading without a trace. intensely fruity nose smells like candied citrus fruit and flower. soapy hops round out the finish. this is a better than average example of a an american microbrew triple.

Another great brew by Schlafly. The bartender said that the ABV was approx. 10% and I can believe it. One of these delicious beers gave me half of a buzz.

Had a golden color with an off white head. Had a spicy aroma with some malt. Had some creamy banana palate with a fair share of carbonation. The alcohol can be felt in the warm finish.

Very nice Belgian ale from Schlafly, with some interesting spiciness and a nice mouthfeel. Good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the tap room. Aroma is loaded with banana, major banana with a few spicy notes. Reminds me of a strong wiess so far. Very cloudy golden yellow with a thin head. Sweet banana-malt flavor with a touch of clove and other spices. Warming, alcoholic finish. A little too simple to be a good tripel. Medium-full body with a sweet and creamy texture. Trade some of that banana flavor for more complex Belgian yeast flavors and make the finish a little drier and this would be much better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On Tap at Schlafly’s Tap Room . Pours clear gold with a small / moderate sized white head. The aroma is cloying thick candied malt with essence of banana. Medium body with only a little bit of carbonation. The flavor starts with syrupy malt that is quite sweet and also has the bananas from the aroma. The finish has a sharp bunch - spice, sour and fizz. There is also some nectar fruit that lingers around a bit. The finish also has a bit of harshness to it. This is an okay beer, but not close to tripel standards. Never a favorite from the brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at Schlafly Tap Room. color is a luminescent yellow, gold with a white head atop. aroma is yeast and clove. flavor is more of the same with some banana and hints of pepper and spice. lively carbonation and alcohol is well hidden. not bad, just not my style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden color with a heavy off white head. Aromas of bananas and cloves really hit the nose. Not as much yeast character as I would look for. Sweet wheat flavors with some more spices of pepper and cinnamon. Seems to have more qualities of a blonde weissbock, but a very good beer nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a growler, thanks Drew. Poured a light cloudy gold. The aroma was banana, peaches and cinnamon. The taste had banana, vanilla, spicy cinnamon and a black pepper finish. A nice spicy tripel.

Pour is golden with a small white head. Aroma is pure sugar with a touch of citrus. Flavor is wonderful. Lots of citrus,banana and candy cane sugar. An outstanding example of the style brewed right here in my own backyard.
