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.

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 (4749) - 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.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - APR 3, 2003
My first beer of this style, nice golden color, hints of banana flavor, decent hoppiness. It definitely has a kick as I can definitely taste the alcohol in this beer. I have tried no other beers of this style to compare this to...but overall an interesting and different beer.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 Hazy golden beer with a small lacy white head. Sort of a sweet Piraat 10.5; sensation of alcohol, malt, sugar. Sort of a low alcohol Belgian tripel with some residual sugar. Nice. // Rerated August 2006. Crystal clear with a huge head that vanishes, leaving not a hint of lace. Yeasty, like a true tripel, not as sweet as I remembered it, with a slightly metalic finish. I down graded both the flavor and the overall impression.

Hazy golden body, small white head, tripel nose. Mild fruity flavor with a distinct yeasty note. Some alcohol presence. Nice example of the style.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Nice pale orange/yellow with a nice fluffy head which stays for a shile. Very well carbonated but not too spritzy. Aroma is of a classic belgian strong ale with lots of bread like aroma's. Taste is malty with some european hops. Very similar to golden monkey, yet there are some subtle differences.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Clear until the yeast pour, deep golden color with thin head and lace. Yeasty aroma with sweet malt, bit of banana, candied sugars, alcohol and others. Medium bodied,creamy carbonation, very lush with bananas, sweet candy, yeast and zippy alcohol in a very tight and balanced package. Has an incredible vinous quality that mingles with the candied sugar and yeast wonderfully. Awesome triple.

A cloudly golden color. Slightly watery flavor. Goes down quite smooth. Overall a decent trippel.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2003
This is an average trippel, not outstanding. The flavor is somewhat thin, but it goes down pretty easily. Golden color, somewhat cloudy, with a lasting, white head. Smells like candy.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Pours a slightly cloudy, deep golden yellow color with a small, white head that rapidly disipates. It has a strongly malty, nutty aroma with a tinge of alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is malty and nutty with hints of yeast, fruit, and alcohol. Overall a decent tripel, though not quite up to par as some of it's Belgian, and even American, cousins.
