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.

These guys definately know how to brew and this is a good one. Sweet and Fruity but not in an overpowering way. A little light going down definatley a summer brew . Hard to believe it's 9%

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2003
Crisp golden appearance with a sweet malty nose and some oak. Body is semi-robust with good yeast profile. Respectably smooth. A pretty good clone of a great Belgian style.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Lightly hazy medium gold color w/ very little head retention for a tripel. Maltiness is sweetly grainy and has a light clove presence w/a little wheat malt, DMS, and alcohol as it warms. Fruitiness is fairly restrained in this bottle. Flavor mirrors aroma, but not quite as intense; grainy malt w/ a little clove and hop flavor and dry finish. Well balanced w/ a medium light body, high level of carbonation, warming alcohol presence and a slight astringency that detracts a little from overall enjoyment. Very good summer type of beer, but not terribly complex for a tripel style if that's what it is supposed to be.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2003
A very good attempt at the tripel style - The only shortcoming to me was that the palate was on the thin side. Taste was wonderful and full of light summer citrus fruits, sugar and spice. Finished dry and lingering. Be careful - it sure doesn't taste like 9%!

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2003
This beer poured a golden color and formed smooth white head that left a solid layer of lace as it subsided. Some carbonation was present. An aroma of hops, banana, citrus and spices. A flavor of hops, spices like coriander and caramel. It had a medium body finish and a touch astrigent. Not a bad belgian style.

Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Typical Triple color and head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt. The flavor starts out sweet and perhaps a bit grainy. Lacks the spice that I love in a good triple. A little thin. Not bad but nohting to write home about.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Good Belgian Tripel! Yeast bread like aroma. Yellow color, fairly clear. Bead of pearl head around the rim of the glass. Fairly sweet. Soft mouthfeel, dry finish.

raymow (791) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2003
One of the first Belgian Style beers that I've tried. It was pretty good, though definitely an acquired taste. A little sweet and a little alcoholly in the after-taste.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2003
some fruit aroma, but also phenolic aromas that were not enjoyable. flavor was crisp but too complex - sweet, bannana, sugar, hoppy - not well balanced.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2003
Light golden in colour, with slight hazyness. Good smell, with hints of malt and hops. Nice medium bodied beer, but the flavours arent extreme and complex. The aftertaste is normal and smooth, but not too flavourful either. A good beer to try once. Tasted on Tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.
