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.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2004
Smells like yeast and alcohol with some spicy, flowery hop notes. It is a golden-yellow colo, r with a diminishing white head. It was a little bit sweet to begin, with hints of sugar and light malt. It has a finish that was slightly sour, which could be due to the rather high carbonation. A little more bitter than the other goldens that I have had.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Some malt and sugar, some trace of alcohol, too carbonated and not enough body. All together a bit non-descriptive and almost bland. Wanted to like it, but just too little of everything to be a good abbey tripel.

CamdenD (1181) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 22, 2004
While not a golden-ale affcionado, I did enjoy this beer. Wonderful nose and appearance to this beer -- full aroma with notes of vanilla and flowers; beautiful golden-hazy color that just looks romantic in the glass. From here, though, things don’t get better. The taste is mild and smooth, but really doesn’t have the complexity of the nose. The aftertaste of this beer is a bit sour with heavyhanded overtones of sugar and malt. Oh well, a good beer, doubt I’ll have another one however.

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is combination of sour and sweet apple. Pours an orangish-gold with a fizzy head that diminishes quickly. Apple and some grassy flavors. Grassiness diminishes in the finish and the sweetness intensifies. Has a Euro-lager flavor and bitterness in the finish. Lots of carbonation. Very dissapointed with this one.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Bottle, many thanks to slob! Pours slightly hazy, light golden orange with a large white head that diminishes mostly and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is frutiy-yeasty, banana, ripe pear, sweet bread and spice. Flavor comes on strong, initially sweet and fruity, with a strong tartness and alcohol presence toward the finish and a lingering sourdough aftertaste - a little unbalanced. Medium body and assertibe carbonation.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2004
Strong fruity aroma with plenty of sweet candy sugar and some light notes of alcohol. Hazy yellow straw coloured with fizzy white head that diminishes to thin cover. Sweet and fruity with light phenolics in the finish and a fair bitterness in the aftertaste. Alcohol is present in the flavour and also as a warming sensation. Fizzy carbonation is disappointing and texture is creamy if a bit oily. Bottle.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle. Golden yellow body, smallish white head. Sweet alcohol dominates the aroma. In the flavour, sweet malt gives way to a pushy dry alcohol. Touch of fruitness. Average palate. Disappointing, since I have high hopes for Weyerbacher stuff. I’d rather have a Blithering Idiot though.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 Outstanding hazy Gold-blond beer with a fine white fluffy froth. Very elegant aroma’s of soft spices, fresh stonefruits, some pinewood and nice malt aroma’s. Nose is a little sweet and has an outstanding freshness. The taste is very fine and has an outstanding tingling fruity frechness in the mouth. For all that high Alc Vol of 9,3% it is still a very refined brew. In the taste you can notice hints of malts, soft spices, some pepper, fresh fruits, like apricots and peaches, almonds, cassondade sugar, even some fresh mint and cakes. In the aftertaste you can notice an elegant alcohol touch that turns into an excellent sharp freshness that lingers on for minutes. I realy like this one and it makes my mouth water. I like to thank EYEDRINKALE for sending me this very original beer.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Very sweet and candy-like nose. There is no shortage of candi sugars in the flavor either, starting sweet and rich but thins out and is rather warming in the aftertaste. Missing the yeasty presence of many other similar brews.

11.11.04 12oz bottle. I’ve had many of this beer looking for the one that hits the money. Maybe that bottle isn’t out there. Thick looking golden with small head and no lace. Aromas of bubblegum and fruit salad and melting sugar. Falvors of limp fruits, some banana, some old citrus, nothing fresh of vibrant. Mulchy grass. Not at all exciting and maybe even overrated at a mediocre 3.5. A major disappointment to me from a favorite brewer. Palate sticky, sweet, and flat. A real let-down.
