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.

deyholla (7533) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle thanks to a generous name who’s name escaped me. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is quite sweet with sweet grains and fruits as well as a hint of a floral note. Flavor is similarly sweet with sweet grains backed by light fruits and a bit of a floral note.

Travlr (14673) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy straw colored, huge white head. Aroma of lemon rind, mixed fruits, straw. Taste is sweet-sour, fruity, lots of yeast. Good stuff.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Nice aroma of sweet honey malts and golden fruits. The taste is that of a sweet and peppery tripel, some golden fruits and honey, but nothing that makes it stand out.

Damico (2787) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle from ’09 as a very generous extra. This pours golden orange with a big off white creamy head. The aroma is amazing - like a fresh spring morning or moist jungle in the nose with hints of Belgian yeast. The flavor is sweet and malty on top of a full body with rich flavors of fruit, but nothing specific as described

Bottle. Pours golden with a nice head. Aroma of candy sugar, apple/banana, and belgo yeast. Flavor is very sweet with some banana/clove shining through the booze. Full body.

Leighton (13198) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours vibrant yellow-gold with a sturdy, white head. Plenty of spices, Belgian yeast and sugary fruits on the nose. Some nice coriander, clove, candi, malt, alcohol and banana. Full bodied with strong carbonation. Sweet, warming finish with lingering Belgian character and spice. Very nice.

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle (a nice one at that). Textbook pour -- bright yellow and active, with a bountiful fruity aroma. Rich with an earthy, yeasty undertow, this beer hides its 10% fangs well, drinking with a nice, light fruit-salad appeal. Kick-butt "light" beer -- introduce your non-beer-drinking friends to this one. (#4012, 11/7/2010)

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2010
750ml Bottle: GUSHER! Aroma of Belgian yeast, malt, fruit, coriander, light spice, light clove, and slight citrus. Poured yellow/gold in color with a large, creamy, dense, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny, small, medium, large, and huge-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, Belgian yeast, alcohol, light coriander, light clove, and a hint of hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average to lively carbonation. Belgian yeast, coriander, alcohol, clove, and malt finish is lightly dry. 10%ABV is present and hot in the flavor.

unclemattie (4328) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2010
750mL bottle, Yellow Cap. Golden amber color. Heavenly Tripel Aroma. Honey, rubbing alcohol, green banana, and lots of fruity esters. Flavor of distant coriander, candi sugar, fresh banana, fruity esters, some alcohol. High ABV. Kinda too strong for me today, maybe more for a personal occasion. Very nice. A top notch Abbey Tripel.
