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.

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

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.

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.
