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.

Tap at brewery. Pours clear bright gold with creamy white head. Aroma is bready malts, floral and herb notes, Belgian yeast, some cookie and candy sugar sweetness, and light spice. Flavor is sweet bready malts forward with supporting citrus esters, faint hop bitterness, and Belgian yeast; dry finish with a touch of booze. Medium body and low carbonation.

Pours a golden color with head and lace. Slight aroma of orange, banana, clove. Flavors of banana, powder sugar, clove, candy sugar, sweet malts, alcohol, citrus. Overall big, bold, relatively easy drinking with a touch of yeasty funkiness.

Pours a slightly amber gold with a nice head and lacing which diminishes in a few minutes. Nose is slightly sweet with a touch of yeast, spice and pear fruit. Medium body approaching full with a nice slick texture. Very well carbonated from bottle conditioning. More flavorful than most Belgian tripels, although this one is US made, with a nice tartness against a typical Belgian flavor profile with a touch of spice. Finishes nicely with a slight alcohol burn at the back top of the throat. One of the better tripels I’ve had.

THX! for this one. 355 ml. bottle sampled @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Pours a completely clear honey golden with zero head, pretty odd appearance. Smells exactly like the kind of candy that is called “vruchtengom” here I believe, the pear variety of that candy, same distinct sugary sweetness, very clearly the pear variety, touch caramel, quite like it since I love that candy. Taste is less explosive than the smell, mellower sadly, very sugary, same candy, sweet pear, honey, white sugar, yeast, caramel, sweet apples,… Very simple, very candy like, pretty odd interpretation of the style, is this what they were going for initially I wonder? Lowe carb. slick, candy like mouthfeel. Easy to drink. I rather liked it, everyone hated it. I suppose another showcase that the blunt “craft” style doesn’t work on more fine-tuned traditional beers but than again, I am not much of a fan of tripel’s in general, this was pretty easy to drink & interesting.

KeroseneCordia (2) - - NOV 29, 2013 does not count
A vigorous pour yields a minimal half-finger to finger of pure white head that fades FAST. Beer is ranges in colour from gold to straw moving up the glass, and is cloudy with yeast. Moderately carbonated, small bubbles stream up the glass and last long after the head had faded. Intense doughy, bready nose with earthy pepper and banana notes. Mouthfeel is moderate to thin with any "weight" being the result of strong malts counterbalanced by fizzing effervescence; the beer foamed up on my tongue with each sip. The finish was dry and slightly hot, and the only time I noticed the alcohol. Overall, a solid brew.

Notes from 2011 -- Bottle. Pours a nice cloudy golden, small head, no lace. Slightly sweet aroma with a hint of citrus in there. Strong malt flavor, with bitterness in the background. Pleasant opening less desirable finish. High alcohol is apparent at the end of the beer.
