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.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a thin white head and a toffee and fruit aroma. There is a sweet and sour pale malt flavor with some interesting spice and a fruity bitter finish. A unique version of Belgian-style tripel that is very tasty.

750 from Randallís Wines and Spirits. Pours dark hazy gold with a foamy 4 finger off-white head. Aromas of yeast, peachy stone fruit and kandi. Near full bodied with frothy carbonation. It is very fruity in a slightly cooked way. The yeast/spice seems mildly peppery. With time the pepper seems to build in the mouth. Not a lot going on here, but the flavor is fairly intense and keeps the attention. Very good.

mensch (275) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Cloudy pale golden colored. Yeasty, lemony sour aroma. Light and fizzy on the tongue. Bright and dry malt flavors-apricots and sherry. Incredibly well disguised 10% abv. After putting all this work and all that malt into this beer, I would like to have some more assertive flavor and aroma knocking on my noggin. I suspect too much sugar and an overreliance on a venerable yeast strain. Still, a very pleasing quaff.

750 ml bottle from Canalís Hainesport. Pours a good looking mostly clear light ornge body with an average sized fluffy super bright white head. Aroma is all over the place. Initial aroma is grainy and slightly sweet. Next aromas of appl cider vinegar, buble gum, bananan peels,and lots of alcohol creep in. The body is fuller with some noticeable alcohol warming, a fuller mouthfeel with super strong carbonation and a dry finish. Flavors of grains, dry banana peels, alcohol and old dried out sugar.Sorry but Iíve had much better triples then this.

Draft served in a snifter at the Tap Room. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a small, creamy white head. Aroma of tangerine, apricot, yeast, floral notes, candi sugar, and malts. Flavor is very similar, with some grass, caramel, and wheat. Medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. A little spice in the background. Alcohol is completely hidden. Pretty solid beer.

750 ml. to chalice, shared with Will. Pours golden with small head. Aromas are very fruity. Taste is fruit and candy. Medium body and carbonation. Long after taste that leaves bread, yeast and fruit. Good for the style.
