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.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Strong grape and slight apricot in nose. Hazy maize color with pure white, but quickly diminishing head. Initial swallow is very tart, opening up to sweetness as the swallow goes on. Slight bitterness appears in middle, fading quickly to be replaced by a very sweet, slightly sour finish. Nice maltiness rises in aftertaste. A wonderfully complex, yet fairly light Tripel.

Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head, which quickly dies. Aroma: The nose is full of candy sugar. Flavor: You can taste apricots. The mouthfeel is a little thick on the tongue, but very pleasant. This is an enjoyable trippel.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 I have KrisB to thank for this. Cloudy Copper color, big frothy head with even frothier lace. Taste is sweet and spicey, texture smooth and perfectly carbonated, finish dry. One of my very favorites.

Well, the label says "Belgian Style Golden Ale," but the website here lists the beer as a Tripel. I'm rating as a tripel. Aroma is yeasty, but very faint. Some fruity notes as well. Beautiful burnished gold color, with a hice white head that faces too fast. There is a slight haze to this beer, which is OK for this style. Flavor...WOW. Huge malt/alcohol up front, fading into a pleasant hop/m alt/yeast balance in the finish. Pretty good for an American secular effort!

very tasty and true to style so far as this North American knows. Are the monks of Pennsylvania at odds with the Amish? Or do they bring a case of this to the barn raising? If they do I need to get up there as I really like the stuff.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Has a thin, straw-colored body with a thin white head. Has an intriguing aroma of earthy, spicy light fruit, including banana-like esters. Flavor was likewise fruity, spicy, and sweet. Alcohol is well-hidden. A very tasty Tripel, and a nice complement to Unibroue 11.

light golden trippilish color with a frothy white head and a lonely big bubble..banana accented belgian yeasty aroma, with spicy pie notes..maybe coriander and nutmeg..who knows and who cares...sweet & very spicy start with lots of coriander..and probably a lot of belgian candi sugar or some non-fermentable,almost non-drinkable substance...this comes mighty close to cloying sweetness.. DAMN IT..some baked banana notes too..more damn spices in the aftertaste..spice and yeast and cloying sweetness..that says it all..STOP TRYING SO HARD...YOU FOOLS!

Golden, scant head. Fruity/sweet yeast aroma. Quite malty, with definite candy sugar notes. Minimal hops, alcohol well-hidden.

Straw yellow appearance. Very sweet aroma ... grape bubblegum and strawberry syrup. The taste is different with each sip. At times very sweet, others I get hit by cloves, and still others by hops. Very fascinating beer. I'll have to age a few bottles.
