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.

It’s not the most groundbreaking tripel, but I found it quite delightful. A bready aroma and the flavor has hints of pear and candi sugar. A bit of banana and clove in a dry finish. It gets slightly cloying as it goes on, but otherwise an excellent beer.

Trev (1975) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2009
cloudy orange gold pour with a quick small white head. Aroma is fruity, apple and some tropical fruit and light bubblegummy tones. Some acidic tartness in the flavour. Apple and even light pineapple tones. Some honey and clove as well. Alc is well blended though noticable after the finish, and it’s a very drinkable tripel.

bluejacket74 (1466) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2009
750 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a golden/orange color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and fruity, it smells like tropical fruit, apples, bubblegum, candi sugar and some peppery spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some pears and bananas. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and slick, and it has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s easy to drink and the alcohol isn’t too noticable in the taste. However, it does catch up to you after a while. Overall I thought this was a good brew, I’d pick it up again.

Hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, grains and clove. Taste of yeast, ripe fruit, honey and light alcohol. Mild tartness and funk set in as well. Decent, but not great.
