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.

BBB63 (6200) - 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 (4651) - 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 (8218) - 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...

r464 (1947) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2003
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.

dankfor20 (193) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 24, 2003
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 (7132) - 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%!
