4.08/5 rDev +5.7%
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%
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.

Poured from 750mL bottle into a Schlafly tulip. Thanks to jmarsh123 for the beer and the glass!
Appearance: orange-gold hue with plenty of haze and a pretty strong effervescence. Head poured a finger of creamy ivory foam which leaves some lace clinging to the glass. Attractive.
Smell: very orchardy aroma with lots of pear and apple character. It's quite sweet as well, but there's not a lot of actual malt character in the works. Good, but perhaps a little too fruity.
Taste: malty, fruity character right up front with more of an emphasis on pear than apple. Still quite sweet with rather a lot of alcoholic heat. Not bad, but I feel like it could be cleaner.
Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a ton of carbonation and a giant, satisfying creaminess. This is how it's done, ladies and germs.
Overall: despite the outstanding texture, the flavor is just a little too sweet and hot for me. Definitely worth a try if you're into tripels.
