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.

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.

Very sour flavor, I didn’t really care for this beer all that much, a bit too sour for my liking, other than that it seemed very full bodied & well balanced, nice golden color, but just too sour

This is delicious. Lots of banana, with apple, strawberry and booze. Totally brilliant. Holds the alcohol wonderfully. So nicely structured. Tough style to do right, and they’ve come close.

Good triple, nice golden color, sweet flavor, nice head, and two on an empty stomach made me feel groggy.

ARMed (597) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2002
Drank this when it was known as Merry Monks. An excellent Belgium ale that resembles the aroma color and taste of Maredsous 8, though not quite a soothing. Slightly overcarbonated, as many Weyerbacher beers seem to be, but a quality Blegium brew. Roasted dark color with a slight hazy overtone. Alcohol is well hidden but not overly complex. An excellent brew.

Subdued hop nose, alcohol fumes and flavor dominate, slight spiciness wih clean finish

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Clear, light golden hue. Small, creamy white head. Somewhat lasting with very little lacing. The nose is malty and yeasty with notes of fuzzy fruit, banana, peach and grapefruit. A whisper of English toffee. The alcohol is well-hidden in the nose. The flavor consists of sweet Belgian malt up front with bursts of caramel, toffee and fuzzy fruits. Nicely balanced. Lightly bitter and lightly acetic on the backside with a hefty dose of warming alcohol and grapefruit. Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and lively carbonation.. Medium-length, very astringent and alcoholic finish with damp straw at the wee end.

Given that it’s US-made, they did a helluva good job on this. Very enjoyable Belgian Tripel. The alcohol is almost undetectable - all you feel is a gentle burning sensation in your throat to remind you this is 9%. Rather sweet and malty. Delicious.
