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.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Lovely sweet aroma with Belgian candidate sugar evident. Beautiful, hazy dark gold with champagne like bubbles and a lasting white head. Banana and clove notes in the flavor. Effervescent mouthfeel. Great balance, fruity sweetness. Incredible! Thanks Falco242! Near perfect.

From a bottle. Pours hazy golden hue with fizzy fading white head. Fruity sweet esters with some toffee sweetness. Not much carbonation, warming boozy finish... Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft and also bottle conditioned at the brewery. Pours clear copper gold with a foamy creamy white head. Really good. Tastes sweet, like banana, bubblegum, malt, yeast, and some citrus. Light body and low carbonation. Very smooth. Smells like sweet, malt, yeast, and citrus.

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.

tillmac62 (181) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2013
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.
