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.

BOTTLE: nice yeasty, estery and spicy nose, hazy pale orange-gold, very fizzy but dissapating head. Quiet start with a wwak juice-likemalt body, then breaks into vanilla flavors followed by a peppery finish that lingers. Thin, but a decent balance and very respectable. Was better on tap.

YogiBeera (2537) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 RERATE: Vintage 2001: Hazy orange color - kind of green shines through too. Frothy head. Apple and banana nose with koriander and oranges. Also yeast. Kind of weak. Banana, grape, cinnomon and pepper taste. Spicey aftertaste. Fizzy and tickles on the tongue.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Bright golden orange color, white head that died and came back. Strong aroma, yeast, vanilla, honey dipped donuts, orange. Flavor has this strange apple sweetness to it, vanilla. Long finish that eventually gets dry, some alcohol burn, fairly smooth carbonation. Somewhat unbalanced. All that adds up to a tripel (and I love tripels) that I wouldn’t really care to drink again. Maybe it improves with age like they say?

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 28, 2004
12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy bright golden, medium diminishing head leaves a nice ring. Very sour and yeasty on the nose, not a trace of sweetness that I could discern. On the tongue, thick and rather juicy at the front, some unexpected brown sugary sweetness, but predominantly sour-apple tartness and heavy yeastiness. Somewhat cloying in its thickness, and a bit too much in the way of vinegar. I’m quite mixed on this one...there are too many great Tripels out there to warrant trying this again soon.

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 (8376) - 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 (2454) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 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.
