COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Weyerbacher Belgian Triple.
At Weyerbacher we've recreated a Belgian Trippel without limitation. We use premium Pilsener malts, candi-sugar, and yeast strains- all imported from Belgium. To be true to the style, our Trippel is bottle conditioned. This means we add a bit of candi-sugar and yeast just prior to bottling. This imparts a special effervescence to the beer, a creamier carbonation, and also extends the shelf life. The on-going fermentation inside the bottle will change the character of the beer as it ages, and you'll find it becomes dryer with age. You may want to lay down a few bottles for future evaluation. We suggest storing at cellar temperatures -around 55 degrees F- and away from light.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; a very slightly hazy apricot with very thin white lacing. Smells of pilsner malt and Belgian yeast with notes of banana, pear, and spices. Tastes like it smells, but more robust and balanced. Solid on the palate. A decent example of the style.

Way more fruity than I had expected. A lot of banana flavor and very little alcohol bite. Can’t complain.

BierMeHoos (71) - Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden color. Aroma of flower and yeast. Too fruity, and spicy. Not my type but others might like it so fruity.

Underdogs88 (67) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Banana runt aroma with cloves. Appease is a golden yellow. Flavor is full of fruity esters of banana and lemons. Clove phenols are present. Malt is bready. Finish is sweet. Mouthfeel is medium high with medium carbonation. Alcohol warming is noticeable. Overall, way too sweet for a triple and needs more pepper notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Salvation Cafe, Newport RI. Pours hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma is floral, banana, clove, spicy malt & belgian yeast - booze on tongue. Medium body, gooey sweet stuff. OK

ROBC3366 (551) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Slightly hazy golden with a fast-dissipating head. Nose is big and estery with some wonderful earthy non-hoppy floral notes, a touch of tangerine or papaya, some blonde hay malts, bright peppery dough, and a wee kiss of green banana. Flavor is equally big and complex and estery as nuts. Lots of floral/herbal/spruce notes with mild bitterness with it, some blonde sweet grains, candi sugar, hay, papaya or grains of paradise or passion fruit or something like that, and a bright doughy ester. Amazing Trippel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frovigalning (2928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle form a bottle shop in Copenhagen. Low carbonation so almost no head. Fruity smell with overly ripe fruit and some apples. Similar taste, slighty boozy.

drpimento (2186) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2014
It's pretty good, but not one of their best. In all regards it's easy to see the direction and purpose, but the execution is is good at best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
