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 (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)

Another great brew by Schlafly. The bartender said that the ABV was approx. 10% and I can believe it. One of these delicious beers gave me half of a buzz.

750ml bottle from Pick’s poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. Pours an almost clear, beautiful golden orange with a small bit of white head. Aroma of straw, banana and something sweet. Taste is medium sweet. Alcohol, some straw and banana. Medium bodied with a thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. Something I will definitely drink again.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 Wow. Straight from the tank with Mitch from Schlafly. Pours a hazy gold, thick head and great lacing. Aroma is banana (with a hint of peel), nutmeg, clove, and sweet caramel. Slight alcohol in the nose. Flavor is BIG and complex. More of the aroma, and an incredibly dry, almost tart finish. A really great tripel.

EtTuCthulhu (999) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a gorgeous amber color with a large white head with very little retention, and the aroma is very strong in intensity yet light in body with its scents of figs, sour oranges, and caramel malts. The taste is mildly sweet, sightly sour, and a touch umami, and the mouthfeel combines a full body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a long finish.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 I really like this stuff. I’m fortunate to live in Illinois just across the Big Muddy from "The Tap Room". I don’t think they have played around with the recipe, as it tastes the same each year: delicious! It may be a little sweet for some, maybe even cloying, but it’s surely true to the Belgian tripel style. Lots of flavors going on: banana, clove, honey, apples, alcohol warmth. Cloudy in appearance (of course, the yeast is still there), with a somewhat thick mouthfeel. Not much hoppiness, but that is to be expected in the style. This Belgian ale never fails to impress me. I look forward to Schlafly’s annual heavy beers around the holidays. The imperial stout at Thanksgiving, the tripel in mid-December, and the barleywine for Christmas/New years. I love them all, but the tripel is my hands-down favorite. 12/15/05 Better now than ever! Taste and palate are the same but I need to rate higher this year.
