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: AUG 5, 2004 Golden color, fruity and yeasty aroma. Taste is sweet,with fruit and malt. The sweetness is really too much. Nothing great here.

Overly sweet in the beginning but mellows with time. Nice color and beautiful head. Fruity typical example of the style. Nothing too remarkable, however.

At the ODBF. Flavor of hay, cider, and a light fruityness. The carbonatin was mild.

Pours like a witte, very frothy and bubbly. Salty fruit aroma. Standard banana type flavor with some malt and alcohol. Decent, but not great.

beerlover82 (220) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2004 Pours a light golden color, with fruity aroma and flavor. Thin head that vanishes quickly, medium-bodied. A little too sweet for me,this is quite a dissapointment from a great brewery.

Bottle from clarkvv: Pours a golden orange hazy opaque color with lots of small dark particles. Keeps its white head for a long time. Smells very good - yeasty, candy, sugar, malt, apple, peach, grape, carrot, coriander. Initially sweet, grassy, light fruit, doughy, with some lemon in the middle, some orange, pepper, grass, and alcohol. Finishes very dry and warming. This is the best I’ve tried from this brewery.

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.
