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.

Has a thin, straw-colored body with a thin white head. Has an intriguing aroma of earthy, spicy light fruit, including banana-like esters. Flavor was likewise fruity, spicy, and sweet. Alcohol is well-hidden. A very tasty Tripel, and a nice complement to Unibroue 11.

light golden trippilish color with a frothy white head and a lonely big bubble..banana accented belgian yeasty aroma, with spicy pie notes..maybe coriander and nutmeg..who knows and who cares...sweet & very spicy start with lots of coriander..and probably a lot of belgian candi sugar or some non-fermentable,almost non-drinkable substance...this comes mighty close to cloying sweetness.. DAMN IT..some baked banana notes too..more damn spices in the aftertaste..spice and yeast and cloying sweetness..that says it all..STOP TRYING SO HARD...YOU FOOLS!

Golden, scant head. Fruity/sweet yeast aroma. Quite malty, with definite candy sugar notes. Minimal hops, alcohol well-hidden.

Decent trippel. Huge head that disapated very quickly. Very sweet yeasty aroma. Good flavors and mouth-feel. Li liked this one a lot.

Straw yellow appearance. Very sweet aroma ... grape bubblegum and strawberry syrup. The taste is different with each sip. At times very sweet, others I get hit by cloves, and still others by hops. Very fascinating beer. I'll have to age a few bottles.

Bright straw yellow with head initially, then fading fast. Aroma is clean, sweet; little Belgian characteristics. Flavor is similar, with a strong honey sweetness, a little clove, some breadiness. Hides alcohol extremely well.

Not my favorite style, but this made for a nice change of pace - I was in the mood for something different. This brew pours a clear medium golden. The average frothy powder white head is mostly diminishing with no lacing. The nose is strong banana and bubblegum, but calms as the brew breathes and warms. The flavor starts just a touch sour with a highly acidic middle and a slightly sweet finish. The body is light to medium, dry and very lively.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Cloudy yellow body that borders on appearing opaque. Nice thin white head.
Very yeasty and sweet aroma. Very Belgian. There's an aroma that is very close to apple cider. The smell almost makes me think of Christmas time.
Immediate banana, clove and spice. Candi sugar really provides a nice kick. The yeast isn't too shabby itself. It has produced some fine phenols and esters during fermentation and still tasty itself! A spicey and lively beer. Lots of clove in the finish.
Lots of tiny little bubbles that help to liven up a big beer.
One of the better Belgians being brewed in North America.

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.
