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.

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

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.

notalush (4914) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2003
This is a rather bland tripel. Thin bodied, watery. There are some citrus/fruit notes, but the finish is a whole lot of nothing. A little spice and well masked abv make it an easy drink, but not a very interesting one.

slimjim (106) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Copper color. Fruity aroma. Spicy malt flavor. Not overly carbonated. A gental mouthfeel. Overall this belgian triiple is very true to its style, which is hard to do in america. I really enjoyed this ale and recommend it for others! Cheers

sloth (2504) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Big ass rocky white head that leaves a nice lace till the end.Hazy gold color. Lots of carbonation.Spicey, lemony,yeasty aroma. Fruity flavors of apples and citrus.Slight oxydation that doesnt take away from this medium bodied brew.Very alive on the tongue, spritsy.Finishes dry leaving a warm sensation in the back of your mouth. Nice brew.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Golden brown color with just a thin edge head. Minimal yeasty and spicy nose. Caramel/toffee sweetness balanced somewhat by a spicy and peppery character. Pretty thick body with a clean finish. Not very impressive, but could possibly improve over time.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JAN 18, 2003
My bottle was labeled Belgian Style Trippel with no reference to Merry Monks. Poured a hazy amber/orange with a lacy white head.Spicy yeast nose.A little tropical fruit sweetness is the first thing that strikes me.Mango I think. Has some spicy/peppery edge to it also.Abv is hidden expertly.Has a very plush mouthfeel to it.A good american trippel.
