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.

hopscotch (9215) - 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.

Sweet, raisin tones, big bitterness and the typical belgian almond tone.

TAR (2503) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2003 Belgian yeast, pilsner malt, obvious spices, and Belgian candy sugar in the aroma. Creamy and dense white foam. Notes of bananas, spice and a blanket of pale malts. Finishes very dry and rather appetizing for such a large brew. About as good as a Tripel can get. I will wait a while to try the Barleywine and Quadrupel because this thing was still kicking when I popped the cap.

legion242 (2223) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2002
Poured clear until the yeast hit; dense head- whipped cream; candi sugar nose- classic belgian aromas. Classic sharp mouthfeel- tingly. Full and pleasing. Not too sweet. Thank you to VENOM.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 18, 2002
The crisp ending made me want more, balanced the sweetness and totally hid the alcohol. The suspended floaties even looked right in this beer. Seemed to lack the complexity of other tripples, but still a great brew. Thanks VENOM!
