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.

DiarmaidBHK (3650) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle from Riverside wine. Pours golden with a half inch of white foam. Big yeast notes on the nose. Kind bready and yeasty on the tongue. A fair amount of the alcohol is present as well. Finishes eventually. Solid for style.

jgb9348 (4981) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish off-white head and some movement in the bottom of the glass. Aroma of yeast, wheat, honey, flowers and a bit of pungent banana sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hay and wheat flavours at first with a lot of honey and some strong yet deep banana and coriander seed flavours on top of some wheat. Aftertaste shows well with the yeast and sweetness dominating and a touch of the drying characteristics noticeable. Overall, a good beer - definitely nice to try and a perfect beer to share, especially for the price! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Giant in Manassas, Virginia for US$5.99 sampled on 12-July-2011.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of sweet Belgian-style malt with some spicy yeasty notes and quite a bit of residual sugar. Taste is also a mix between some Belgian-style malt notes with light candy ester and quite a bit of residual sugar with a light peppery yeast finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable thought a bit too much residual sugar for my liking.

jandd1983 (2986) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap, it poured a cloudy gold color with a small white head. The aroma was of yeast, with some banana, clove, pear and apples. It had a smooth mouthfeel. The taste was malty, with some ripe fruit and a sweet finish. Good stuff.

nearbeer (4012) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2013
750 ml. bottled Aug 28, 2012. Lightly hazy amber-copper with a quarter inch of cream. Earthy grape must, toffee, rusted apple and white wine in the aroma. Flavors of oxidized pears and apples baked in spices, brown sugar, and white wine. Medium body is fairly balanced, has medium carbonation but drinks nice and soft, and is a little too boozy.

Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a clear, golden appearance with a white head. Spicy yeasty, banana, phenolic, lemon nose. Somewhat boozy, lightly spicy, banana, pear flavor. Ok.

jcnielsen (2423) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2013
On tap at Schlafly Taproom. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Yeasty, malty, a touch of alcohol. Interesting tripel, but doesn’t quite do it for me.

jefcon (1459) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Wow -- a strong tripel. Very juicy up front, very dry on the finish. Apricot, plum, apple and doughy yeast. Malts are appropriately balanced and consistent on the palate, but they just can’t handle the extreme fruitiness of the hops (though they do an admirable job on the high alcohol content). Light toast, oats, almonds. Really delicious, as an American tripel, and adventuresome.

SPDickerman (1015) - Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pours hazy orange with tiny white head. Smells a touch fruity with some bread notes. Taste is of big white fruits and big bread notes with a touch of dry bitterness. Full bodied, smooth texture and fizzy mouth-carbonation, Schlafly Tripel finishes with a fruity dryness.

Bottle brought home by my parents in law. Hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is perfume, yeast, spice, acetone. Flavor is yeast, perfume, alcohol, spices. Im not a tripel fan, but this is quite nice.
