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.

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.

Nice golden color but no head. Probably due to the lack of carbination. Overall a decent example of a triple not great but good.

boto (1853) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2004 12oz bottle: A bit of a golden hue, with a little cloudiness. Some hints of bread, banana and clove in the nose. Tastes are very similar to the aroma. The taste is pretty much in line with other tripels. A good brew, but just a little lacking in comparison to other Belgian or domestic tripels. Allagash or Golden Monkey are much better. Duvel is still the king!

Well another good brew by Weyerbacher, this golden colored ale has a smooth fruity smell, with hint of peaches and oranges. Its taste is smooth and fruity, but I felt is was a little to bubbly, or carbonated, I am really unsure of why it tasted like that, but I will a have a few more tonight and report any changes in my opinion in the morning.

(Labeled Belgian Style Trippel) Opaque orange with minimal head. Aroma is sugar cane, banana and spice/yeast. Flavor is sweet and malty, but bitterness in the swallow makes for good balance. A bit too much carbonation, and a hint of astringency in the aftertaste are the only drawbacks. Hides the alcohol exceptionally well.
