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.

Aroma: Vinegary aroma predominate. Not a nasty strong vinegariness, but enough to turn me off. Can't pull much hop or malt out of it. This is the 2nd bottle I've had like this. Appearance: Pours with no head at all, but the clarity was very good. Gold color. Flavor: Flavor doesn't have the vinegariness that is present in the aroma, which is weird. Flavor has decent maltiness but no hop flavor, which is fine. Some spicy yeast character is noted. Ho-hum flavor but not offensive. Mouthfeel: Carbonation relatively low. Overall: I wasn't a big fan of this one. Its not a bad or offensive beer, its very simple and serviceable if need be but there are better examples of this style out there.

Pours cloudy and leaves an unpleasent aftertaste. The initial taste is fairly good however. I guess if you just keep drinking it, not allowing an aftertaste, you are all set. Well, probably not.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2004
Bottle pours hazy golden, tiny milky white head, active carbonation, and so-so lacing.   Belgian yeasts and candi sugar on the nose.   Seems true to style by aroma at least, bready/yeasty with some clove.   Bready/yeasty up front, slightly sweet, but somehow turning rather sour towards the finish.   A slight band-aid tinge in the aftertaste.   While the sourness doesn't last long, its enough to throw it off.   I like the fact its not as heavy as others, but the finish needs some work.   The 9.3% ABV is well hidden though.   Thanks goes out to austinpowers for the trade!

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2004
Mirky golden color with a short lived white somewhat lacy head. Fruity aroma. Rather sweet and fruity tasting with a less than expected malty or yeasty component. Finishes wet, sweet, noticeably sour, and mildly bitter. Good if you are in the mood for sweet and sour. Otherwise not one of the best tripels.

DocLock (7876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2004
A good triple. Belgian dubbels and triples are not my favorite styles, but I have to commend Weyerbacher on this brew. It's super malty, very alcoholic, and has overtones of citrus, yeast, sugar candy, and riesling. I found it to be too sweet and a little cloying, but I respect what they have accomplished with this one. I laid 6 down, and I will re-rate after a year or so.

jimhilt (2406) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Pours with a three-finger white head that fades quickly and leaves a good lace. Cloudy, golden amber color. Good carbonation. Nose is hoppy; Starts with a good balance of malts and hops, finishes crisp and clean with some hoppy aftertaste. $2.10 for a 12oz bottle.

DYCSoccer17 (3321) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Pours tranparent blonde with mild haziness. Pours virtually flat with a very small and very brief white head. Um, something is definitely wrong here. Sour aroma, flat flat and flat...tastes like a pilsener. Something definitely wrong here. I will need to re-rate this thing. I will give it a token "average" rating in the meantime.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 Cloudy tangerine color with above average head. Classic Belgian bread aroma. Flavors of candy, bananas and yeast. A great take by an American brewery to make a Belgian Triple.

JFGrind (1847) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Merry Monk is a good looking cloudy, golden ale. Initial aroma is sour and the tartness is evident throughout sampling this beer. Not a bad beer, but not a good triple.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Poured a cloudy honey color with a thick white head of foam that settles down to a thin layer. Yeast is prominent in the aroma along with clove and a slight citrus. Creamy mouthfeel that is very effervescent and crisp which is true to the style. Alcohol is well hidden in this ale which is always a good thing. Flavor is very wheat malt like. Almost a cross between a Wit and a Tripel. Pleasant none the less. Overall a really well made Tripel and one I'd drink again if given the chance.
