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.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 2004 bottle (pretty sure). Great pour. Transluscent, bottle conditioned, rusty orange, golden-peach. Great head that does not leave, small and white. Decent lacing and fine bubbles and yeast. Aroma is wonderful. Exceedingly clean and strong of yeast, yellow apples, candied sugar, light sweet vinegar, ripe white grape skins. Wow, what an aroma. Flavor is quite good as well, though the finish is a bit watery and stale. Starts out with lots of alcohol, and a big flavor which is very reminescent of peaches soaked in cointreau. Moderately acidic, estery, and has a good dose of alcohol. For being my favorite style of trippel (estery, alcoholic, low sweetness) this certainly goes over well with me. Wow, I really like this one. 9/5/7/4/17
2006 bottle Drunk on 12/16/06.
Head is initially quite large, but rapidly diminishes to cover. Is this still bottle conditioned? Hard to tell. Seems very clear, and this bottle had rested for some time. Light/pale gold with a hint of dry grass and bronze tints (yellow-green). Very hoppy nose and flavor, actually seems to mask a good deal of the beer. Not syrupy or too sweet, but actually, rather lean and filtered tasting. Loose carbonation and a fair amount of astringency on the end. Light alcohol warmth, tons of dry phenols and very, very dry nectarine skin esters. Banana and buttery honey notes seem rather unrefined. Love the hop flavor, but that’s about all it seems to have going for it now. Score is for the current bottle.

Hazy, medium golden in color with a small white head. Spicy and fruity aromas. Sweet, spicy and fruity tastes. Taste struck me as run of the mill and nothing too special. Fizzy body.

Too me this seemed very far from a tripel style. Tasted like a spiced marble rye. Dry with limited hops.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Sweet banana and coriander nose. Aweful sweetness at first sip, but that fades to a spicy and very dry taste, reminded me of some saisons, but overly alcoholic at the finish. A beer of ups & downs.

Art of Beer Festival 2004: Has a clouded golden color with a small white head. Smell is of spice/fruit/citrus. Taste is of light spice/fruit/citrus and finishes a little watery. Overall a bit to thin for me.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Poured a light hazy gold with a thin white head. Fruit and bread on the nose. Lots of vanilla on the tongue, along with caramel and light fruit. Weak and watery. I didn’t know the style of the beer when I bought it. After I poured the beer I knew it was a tripel, but that’s about the only thing about the beer that resembled a tripel. A weak attempt by a good brewery.

Pours a nice golden color with a decent white head. Aroma had a decent belgian spice, mildly fruity nose. Flavor had a mild spice taste, much less than i was expecting from this. Fairly sweet, decent beer.

Cloudy gold with a small white head. Funny nose--dirt, sulphur, pepper, coriander. Very spicy, peppery flavor, somewhat sweet, with warming alcohol and some strong yeasty notes.

TheBeerGod (5366) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Pours a clouded golden blond with a medium fizzy white head. Aroma is sugary with fruit and yeast in the mix. Light spice in the aroma as well. The taste starts off sort of like a tart fruit with spices and some sugary notes throughout the taste. Definite pepper like spice towards the finish. The very end seems more sweet though. Odd mouthfeel as it seems almost dominated by whatever spices are in there. It adds a weird sharpness or tingle in the mouth combined with the carbonation. I’d like to see how this one ages. Good beer, though!
