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.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Golden color, fluffy white head. Yeasty aroma. Body is a little thin. Flavor is dry and yeasty with hops perdominating the finish. Slight spiciness and sweetness.

This poured a clear gold out of the bottle with a thin, quickly dissappearing white head. Nose of honey and spice. Lots of candy sugar sweetness with an almost too syrupy mouthfeel. Very sweet, and a little too one dimensional for me. Alcohol is present but not obvious, and there is a darker, apricot flavor, but it is just beaten up by the sugar. If I had another bottle, I would put it in the closet for a year and see what happens.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - SEP 26, 2003
Hazy, golden body with a medium thick, creamy head (long lasting). Bubbles are clung to sides of glass and rise from the bottom like your favorite soda. Smell is mild hops, caramel and a little bananna. Taste is big time sweet and complex. Caramel, apple, cloves, cinnamon, banana and alcohol sop onto the palate. My only gripe about this beer is that it feels sticky, ala fountain drink syrup. Aftertaste is cloying with cloves and honey.

the label depicting the furtive, apparently inebriated monks lurking about the closed door--perhaps merely merry mischeivious peeping toms, or perhaps contemplating breaking and entering-- is not an appealing visual appurtenance to this fine beer. the beer is attractive however, bright yellow as polished turkish brass. the modest head, like an oreo cookie filling, is there fat and tempting, but suddenly some kid seemingly has scrapped it off. grass and banana aroma, twinkies, some malt liquor notes. retsina and candy sugar leads the flavors-- on be-bop soda pop carbonation, then barrenjager honey liquer and frosted flakes. strong citrus bitters with gin and tonic authority still can't cut the enormity of sweetness, and so it lingers there, chewing away at your tooth enamel, gouging out cavities like microscopic and frenzied coal miners. "cloying" i guess they call that phemomena. nice buzz tho. excuse me now, i gotta brush...

1more4dessert (330) - Upstate, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2003
cloudy pale yellow with small fizzy and nearly instantaneously vanishing head. complex mixed frutiness, mellow and well blended complexity, no singly dominant flavor note. not as sweet as many in the style which I like, reminded me some of Allagash white but the yeastiness in this brew is better tamed.

freekyp (1537) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2003
UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Strong grape and slight apricot in nose. Hazy maize color with pure white, but quickly diminishing head. Initial swallow is very tart, opening up to sweetness as the swallow goes on. Slight bitterness appears in middle, fading quickly to be replaced by a very sweet, slightly sour finish. Nice maltiness rises in aftertaste. A wonderfully complex, yet fairly light Tripel.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head, which quickly dies. Aroma: The nose is full of candy sugar. Flavor: You can taste apricots. The mouthfeel is a little thick on the tongue, but very pleasant. This is an enjoyable trippel.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 I have KrisB to thank for this. Cloudy Copper color, big frothy head with even frothier lace. Taste is sweet and spicey, texture smooth and perfectly carbonated, finish dry. One of my very favorites.

Well, the label says "Belgian Style Golden Ale," but the website here lists the beer as a Tripel. I'm rating as a tripel. Aroma is yeasty, but very faint. Some fruity notes as well. Beautiful burnished gold color, with a hice white head that faces too fast. There is a slight haze to this beer, which is OK for this style. Flavor...WOW. Huge malt/alcohol up front, fading into a pleasant hop/m alt/yeast balance in the finish. Pretty good for an American secular effort!
