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.

UDBeernut (1915) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2012
bottle poured into a tuliup glass. Pours a bright straw yellow capped by a foamy white head with ok retention. Head reduces to a light lacing cap. Light biscuit and clove in the nose. Taste is clove, clove and more clove, slight biscuit, grass, and the alchohol becomes noticable as it warms. Mouth is full bodied and quite a sipper.

Pours a lovely orange-gold with significantly fluffy head that reduces with pace. Aroma is sweet malt with mixed fruit. On the palate, there are some funky yeasts and alcohol burn before sweet notes. Give it a few minutes, though, and it opens up to a range of fruit notes, from pineapple and mango through orange and pear. Not a beer to pour down the hatch. Aside from the fact that the (unlisted) ABV seems higher than reported, aeration improves a so-so start into a very decent hommage to Belgium.

SteveOrz85 (14) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Date Tasted 2/24/15. Poured from 120z bottle into Chimay Chalice. Bottle dated 12/17/14. Two finger fizzy head dissipates to a thin head after a few minutes. Minimal lacing. Appearance is translucent golden orange. Aroma has sweet floral notes with maybe a touch of citrus. Taste is light and sweet with exotic fruit, yeast and maybe pear near finish. Moderate carbonation. Overall enjoyable well crafted beer.

Aged for a year. Very dry with a lot of spice and still pretty astringent. Yeast strain adds an complex element to the flavor.

commonmac (465) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle purchased at Elevated in South Minneapolis. Light orange in color with a healthy amount of head...the majority of which exits the glass quickly leaving about a half finger remaining. Little bit of cloud to the appearance as a result of the sediment presence. Aroma definitely has the sugary, candy presence and a little bit of a tropical note. Taste certainly takes its cue from Belgian styles with a funky, yeasty character prevailing. Sugar and alcohol advance to the forefront too. Leaves a bit of the alcohol burn to make sure you know its clocking in just over 9%. There is a good spice working throughout as well. Actually a pretty solid representation of a Belgian tripel although clearly a notch below the stuff coming out of that beautiful beer country. I would get merry with these monks again.

superspak (3012) - Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 10/29/2014. Pours lightly hazy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big pear, apple, apricot, banana, pepper, clove, coriander, wheat, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big pear, apricot, apple, banana, pepper, clove, coriander, candi sugar, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, banana, pepper, clove, coriander, candi sugar, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is great. A good amount of dryness as well. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding tripel style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

libertine (255) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a cloudy light amber with a lot of sediment. Nice frothy head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. Aroma is malt, banana, citrus and spice. Flavor is sweet with a light burn of alcohol in the back of the throat. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel Dry bitter finish. Alcohol is very nice with the dry finsh. I think this fits right in with Final Absolution and La FIn Du Monde. I personally think this is the better of the three.

paintedmaple (476) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Tap...good looking goldish pour and aroma of bananas and bread. Nicely effervescent and easy drinking...a good representation of the style.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Typical, to-style Belgian tripel. Light, sweet, w/ a slightly cidery nose. Very warming but hides the high ABV very well.

jflopsu (708) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours good with light white head. Has a heavy cirtus and wheat aroma. Has a strong wheaty and yeasty flavor with sweet citrus, fruit, pine, and caramel. A sweet malt aftertaste.

Getbetter (915) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015
From a bottle into a goblet. The pour is a fizzy orange ale with a white head. A Belgian sugary fizzy ale.
