Had this at the taproom in STL.
A - Light orange brew with a big ass white head that shows good retention and leaves some nice arcing lace on the snifter it was served in.
S - Rich perfumed spice. You can smell the Belgian DNA. Very yeasty, fresh, and fruity.
T - Tight and focused hops attack initially, followed by some nice honey and yeast. Clover honeycomb. The booze is noticeable, but I actually like that unlike some other BAs. Like scotch or bourbon, part of the appeal of the bigger beer is alcohol spice.
M - Tight, medium-full bodied, and lively. Lots of tingly carbonation and hot alcohol keep this sweet honey flavored beer from getting to cloying.
D - An outstanding beer! I'm a big fan of tripels, and Schlafly did not disappoint me in the least.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Label reads, Brewed with love 1 2313.
A: Inviting, cloudy golden yellow-orange body. 2 fingers of thick, off-white head with good retention. Moderate lacing.
S: Fruity Belgian yeast with a round, vanilla character. Banana, apple. Candi sugar. Light spice. Biscuit. Dough. A bit earthier and maltier than your typical tripel, but nice.
T: Surprisingly tangy spice up front with development of a moderate hop bitterness. Semi-dry finish with a bit of a sour note lingering on the aftertaste. Boozy, but not excessive for 10% ABV.
M: Lighter on the carbonation than the average tripel, but brings a nice creamy texture. Fullish body for the style.
O: Very nice take on the style with a unique flair. Schlafly's Belgian yeast is legit. Solid outing.

3.51/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Light copper colored with excellent clarity. Easily an inch and a half of densely packed off white head. Scents of pear and light Belgian candy sugar. The mouth is highly carbonated and very dry. There's somewhat of a very earthy,bread like almost sourdough bread flavor. There's a bit of an olive oil aftertaste on the fade.
