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.

I thought this was a pretty good rendition. Deep straw colored with medium to large bubbles. I'm getting the usual bananas, spice, and bubblegum on the front and a caramel maltiness on the end of the aroma. Sweet with a hint of alcohol and esters. Banana lingers. I enjoyed this. Did seem a bit heavy though.

Far too sweet, just loaded down with candy sugars. Bit of a soapiness in the finish. Pretty, nice bright cold, bubbles dance in the glass, but didn't particularly care for the flavor.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUN 29, 2003
On tap at the Old Dominion 7th Annual Beer Festival, June 28, 2003. Poured out a deep golden yellow color. Aromas of dried fruit, mascerated cherries, candi sugar, and Belgian yeast. Bready, fruity, and slight hops aromas in this beer. Strong aromas of malts as well. Very rich, full bodied, and thick, chewy texture to the mouthfeel. Coats the tongue with a velvety smoothness. Almost a creamy texture to it as well. Belgian yeasts in the taste, along with bread flavors as well. Some banana & clove evident in the taste as well. A very rich, complex beer. Very malty and decadent. A really well made craft beer here.

Had this on tap. Very nice aroma of fruit and spice. Taste was yeasty and spicy, with the sweetness coming through on the back end. Smooth finish with a clean, slightly lingering, aftertaste.

BBB63 (5941) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Hazy golden hue with little head and virtually no lacing. Medium to full-bodied. Beautiful fruity aroma, nints of grapefruit, honey, lemongrass, and minor spices. Sweet taste balanced by moderate alcohol levels and hops. Lingering sweetness on the palate. Creamy and soft mouthfeel, light alcoholic finish, a bit thin. Outstanding beer, highly recommended. One beer where looks are very deceiving.

Hmmm. I had a very generous sample of this (approx. 6 oz.) but I couldn't be persuaded. It was just so light, pale yellow with a loose lager head. The flavor was rather disappointing, hitting some uncomfortable grain notes, perhaps wheat. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt that the fruity notes many describe couldn't be picked up by my somewhat dulled palate (though I had this early in the beer festival). Nothing near what I think of as a Triple. (on tap, Pennsylvania Microbrewers Fest 2003)

Clear straw color. Fruity, flowery, hoppy aroma. Even some grape bubblegum came out. Refreshing and spicy.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2003
(Bottle) Golden coloured with bubbly, white head. Light and slight spice aroma. Smooth, don't taste 9.3% but fairly flavourless. Clean, smooth finish.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
A very dry bread flour on crusty crumbs...A citrusy shampoo perfume dominates this light body...Does not taste its strength and could be a very deceptive yet delectable summer evening brew...

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Strong and fruity, knocks you back afterwards. One to be wary of that despite the flavor, it packs quite a wallop.
