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.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Theres 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.

cfrancis (3347) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2017
Pours foggy dark yellow gold with a moderate off white top. Aroma is mineral and belgian yeast. Taste is more mouthfeel than I was expecting but a little more mineral that I would like. Nice carbonation and yeast characteristics.

(tap) bright, clear, honey amber colour with a medium tall, beige head; aroma of wet wood, hint of earth; then some fruit; flavour starts sour, then balances out, rich and interesting

This is a top notch triple. Among my favorites for the style from an American brewery. Fits the bill perfectly - golden, light spice, great mouthfeel. Love it.

Tmoney99 (14196) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tap. Poured clear light golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex spicy sweet and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Taste on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear golden color. Thin ring of white head. Dots and bits of lace. Banana, belgian yeast, spice, mild must. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Solid but not-that-interesting American tripel.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a bunch of sweet malts, fruity, almosta slight tart character, the aalcohol shows a bit, some heat to the finish, the fruit is a general fruity character not specific, some citrus, a splashof bbanana, medium to full bodied, ok.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2014
750mL bottled with love on 1 2313, consumed here on 6 1414. Nose is sweet and dusty, light hay and still-bright lemony citrus, light floral background and some of the sweetness I associate with things like spelt and buckwheat. Yeasty notes with controlled jammy fruit, though no yeast to be seen in the body. Pours clear golden with strong carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste is lightly sweet, medium tart, low bitterness with medium alcohol warmth that ticks up with every sip; slick and strongly oily, tons of phenolic development with slighter esters. Touch of pepper under clove and jam, bits of sugar in the full body, and extremely (exquisitely) effervescent. Hay and very light grass, but otherwise straight, strong golden malt up the middle, classic sugary tripel. They just made this one way, way too hot, its every bit its 10% abv, but its enjoyable in the giddy sugar-rush of received good news (for food and conversation with company rather than moody contemplation in Beethovens melancholy), if not exactly recommendable in general.

pushkinwow (2755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from GRM. Light yellow with an off white head. Candied smoked meat with some reminants of a five alive can and lots of malt, develops into a bit of a rancid orange juice box taste as things start to ferment, continues to be quite malty, somewhat booze. This one was a little odd for me.
