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.

750mL sampled at Shenandoah Throwdown. Good cloudy yellow body with a thick0ish white head that has good retention and lace. Excellent sourish nose with lactic acid coming through atop rich, sour green pears and light citrus peel. Taste is sweet oranges, candi sugar, slight booziness, spices, pears. Really nice- a big surprise.

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Big fancy bottle. Pours a fairly clear gold color (second glass from the bottle is very cloudy, with tons of floaties, however) with a very large fizzy white head that dies down pretty slowly and leaves lots of suds on the sides of the glass. Aromas are sweet and spicy... Lots of honey and dough, a bit oi pear and apple fruitiness and cloves to balance it out. Flavor is very similar, but borders on a little too robust (especially the stinging alcohol). This is big, sweet and very assertive.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2010
There’s a little cotton-candy aroma here, then its got lots of that wintery spice, clove, coriander, grass and some yeast. The flavor is crisp at the start, then a little bready softness, closing off with a bitter carbonated snap. Overall quite enjoyable. I would turn this into a regular drinker if I could get it here.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma of citrus, yeast and honey. Good flavor of honey, citrus and yeast. The body is light with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. Not a great example of the style, but quite satisfying.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2010
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a cloudy, golden colored body with an orange tint. Finger-width, creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice, soft lacing. Aroma is fruity with an easy, mellow spicing. Yeasty and flowery with some citrus grass and a hint of tartness. Nice, soft malt backing with a bit of a candy sweetness. Flavor is solid. Soft malts with a bit of that candied sweetness and a light caramel and wheat. Fruity with some citrus grass and apricots with a hint of tartness similar to the aroma. A good amount of yeasty spice with a touch of earth. Finishes clean and dry with a nice, fruity, yeast spicing. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light to medium, soft and smooth body. Very easy drinking. Overall, a well made tripel. Fruity and flavorful with a solid yeast spicing. Pleasant malt backing and well balanced with no trace of alcohol. Nice beer.
