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.

freeofthoughts (682) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Tap pours a hazy golden yellow with a finger of white foam. The aroma is musty Belgian pale malts. The flavor starts with a light tartness and rich Belgian musty flavor, very grainy. It stays musty but some sweetness comes in, it is quite simple and easy to drink for 10%. The brew gets a little stronger with warmth but doesn’t get too abrasive or sweet, it retains an old Belgian musty funky earthy feel throughout with some lemon peel coming out as it warms a while adding depth. Interesting and we’ll done.

keanex (1606) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2013
No bottling information, yellow cap.
Appearance: The body is cloudy with pale straw edges that get darker through the center into a an ugly orange brown. The head is tall and dense, but fluffy, with good retention. It settles into a creamy white coating.
Aroma: The aroma is a fruity medley with hints of lemon, banana, and strawberry. Hints of alcohol are apparent with a mild floral dryness. The aroma leans sweet though.
Taste: This is pretty intense for a tripel, but in a good way. The intro is dry with hints of floral and lemon, but it becomes a very strong malty beer with overlying banana and strawberry. Alcohol is present by the finish along with light black pepper and clove. The finish lingers of sweet a banana and a lingering alcohol. This drinks nice.
Palate: Full bodied, nearing thick, with high carbonation.
Overall: I think this is a good beer. It’s not very traditional, but it’s enjoyable, despite the alcohol presence.

rodenbach99 (3466) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml. 28 août 2012. Bière cuivrée avec une mousse blanche collante. Un nez sucré, de sirop d’érable, de toffee, d’épices. La bouche est sucrée, dans le même registre, sirop d’érable, toffee, épicée. Une finale pas assez atténuée à mon humble avis.

SlovakSniper (3647) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Une bouteille de 75 cl datée du 28 août 2012. Une robe orangée et passablement embrouillée sur laquelle flotte un anneau de mousse. Quelques traces collées s’accrochent ici et là sur la paroi de mon verre. Au nez, des fruits jaunes, des herbes et un alcool floral doucement tartinés par des épices à la belge. Sur les papilles, un caractère fruité intéressant et de chaudes épices qui ne montrent que très peu de choses sucrées. En bouche, un liquide au corps bien rempli avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse. Une finale sèche et fruité par son alcool amer et plutôt tiède. Tout compte fait, une triple qui me plaît bien car elle n’est pas engourdie par le sucre.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2013
750 mL bottle from Beer Run, with a bit of age on it. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spice, caramel, bread, stone fruits, apples. The taste is bread, toast, caramel, spice, apples, mild hops and booze. Medium bodied, lingering spice.

EtTuCthulhu (1295) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a gorgeous amber color with a large white head with very little retention, and the aroma is very strong in intensity yet light in body with its scents of figs, sour oranges, and caramel malts. The taste is mildly sweet, sightly sour, and a touch umami, and the mouthfeel combines a full body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a long finish.
