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.

Hazy golden color, thin white head. Aroma of apples, spice, malt and yeast. Flavor was spicy, and yeasty, abit of fruit and a tiny bit of alcohol. Medium body, pretty nice job masking abv. Pleasant.

Dorwart (2377) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2004 Thin head which is retained nicely due to the good carbonation. Color is a medium gold and is slightly cloudy. Aroma is fruity with a touch of hops. Flavor is quite nice but not very complex. Good flavor of white grapes, yeast and a bit of spices. Finish is clean and smooth with a hint of alcohol. A bit dry also. A good tasting triple but not one with a lot of character.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2003 Clear golden color with almost no color. The aroma is slightly sour or bitter, but there is also plenty of fruit--apple, orange, peach, white grape and a touch of honey sweetness. The flavors are a bit strange--the sourness really comes out in the mouth. Luckily the finish brings out some sweetness and the fruit. I don't really know what to think about this one. Sometimes it was pleasant and tasty. Other times, things were sour and quite off. All in all, I found this to be a bit disappointing.

Pale sunlight gleams out of my glass. . .thin cloud wisps create intermittent shadows. The air is filled with wild yeast, pineapples, orange flesh and soft (fresh from the over) dough. Flavour is full and coats the mouth with soft oranges, banana peel, fine pepper dust, fresh flowers and some interesting grain. I hadn't had a nice tripel in a while and this one sat very well with me.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Pours a hazy orange, with a small white head that completely lasts, and laces extremely nicely. Aroma of sugar and spice, yeasty, and slightly fruity. Flavor is sweet, some honey, some spicey - very enjoyable mix of flavors. Fairly full-bodied, ends quite dry, alcohol barely pokes it's head through towards the end.

One of my bottles was double labeled, now im not a stickler by any means but i thought of it as somewhat sloppy and the beer inside reflected the outside. Not a regular drinker of Tripels, i found this one the least enjoyable one ive had and the least enjoyable of the sampler.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2003
Effervescent, slightly hazy apricot colour with a thin, white head. Aroma of plastic, alcohol, mango, pineapple skin, rotting oranges, caramel. Body is fairly alcohol, obfuscating some of the other notes that I was hoping would carry over from the aroma (well, not all the aroma notes were desirable, but some were). Apricoty notes emerge before the alcohol gets too overbearing, alongside more plastic and a fair bit of treacly and caramelly malt. Finishes alcoholic and plasticy. I've found those kinds of flaws in Weyerbacher beers before, and it's too bad because generally I like this brewery.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Pale golden color with almost no head on it. Aroma is slightly metallic, but has the usual malt and yeasty notes too. Flavor is too relaxed for a tripel in my eyes, but its still nice. Mouthfeel is unsually challkty too boot.

This was a good beer but not the best. It was a little too spicy for me, but I still would not hesitate to have one once in a while.

OK beer, but actually a disappointment. Probably won't order a second time. Slightly stale aroma and flavor ("aged" hops? or just poor storage?). Belgian yeast twangy taste is more twingy than twangy. The brewers should have worked a bit more on the recipe and production process before releasing for sale
