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.

ryanscourt (1241) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Had in both 12 oz bottle and bottle conditioned. Strong yeast, lemon, flavor. Much more mellow than 12 oz bottle but great flavor and great mouthful. Alcohol seems a little stronger than 12 oz bottle, warms the back of the throat. Pretty tart. Very good, two different experiences between the bottles. Worth a try to get both.

750 ml bottle from Tavour. Nose is vanilla caramels, honey wheats cereal, and a hint of bubblegum. Hazy gold with a big off white head. Flavor is moderately sweet and clovey spicy.

Claves77 (207) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2016
Perfect clear, translucent golden hue. Fragrant smell, sweet of triple, slight banana yeast. Nice flavor, not overpowering. Subtle of high alcohol. Fleating flavor, does not last.

tfontana (468) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is mild fruity esters, bubblegum, alcohol, light sour. Appearance before last 10th of pour is hazy yellow/copper--after last 10th pour is cloudy orange--with nice sparkle, tiny fizzy white ring with no lacing. Taste is mild to moderately sweet citrusy ester flavor with mild bubblegum, light tart like a dry champagne. Palate is light bodied with thin, creamy texture, frothy/airy carbonation and dry, crisp finish. Nice warmth in the stomach. Overall, Weyerbacher gets the effervescent, creamy carbonation qualities it is seeking, but I’d prefer something a little meatier. Nothing is particularly big or bold. On flip side, alcohol is well hidden in taste.

jsporrer (415) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a white head. Aroma is crisp tart fruit with a hint of banana, spices, and biscuit. Light carbonation. Flavor is crisp and clean with light spices. Refreshes the palate and finishes with a burst of flavor and a peppery / clove bite. Taste is similar to a Hefeweizen but with less of a wheat flavor. Very enjoyable and refreshing. Solid.

KoNrRiI (1033) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2016
0.355 bottle. Hazy, gold color with a yeasty suspension and virtually no head. Aroma of bananas, bubblegum, and a hint of Candi sugar. Taste is sweet with some sour notes: bubblegum, banana, apples, Candi sugar, quite some spices and a touch of yeasts. A medium body, a slick texture, and a fizzy carbonation. Finish is medium long, sweet, very "Belgian". Overall a good beer, certainly tasty and drinkable though its carbonation obfuscates the essential flavors which make the beer so pleasant. A successful attempt at a Belgian-styled brew, nonetheless further work is required.
