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.

This rating was from the Hop In The City event where brews from the previous year were sampled (5 oz) by the attendees from kegs. This brew poured a large head of fine to large sized white long lasting bubbles that left behind a hazy light brown colored body and an excellent lacing. It had a strong floral aroma and a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was very complex with elements of fruit, flowers a,d sweet malt in it.

This was disgusting, save for the perfumey aroma. I could barely choke down the sweet, peaches & cream (but artificial) cloying juice. Better than the dubbel, thats really all I can say. Please don't waste your money, time and palate.

Spicy with soft fruit like flavors, perhaps even bannana. Very well balanced. A pleasant surprise after the sub par dubbel.

yellowish/light golden and very clear, had the spicy aroma of a good hefe. VERY fruity flavor this beer seems to really open up in the mouth...definitely a warming sensation from this one!

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.

A little better than the dubbel. Had in 2000. Somewhat residual and clovey some nice fruitiness associated with this style. No head at all, but bursting with flavor. Not bad.
