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.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle in Exira, Iowa. Hazy, yellow appearance with a creamy white head. Yeasty golden, sweet Belgian ale nose. Yeasty, sweet, floral fruity Belgian golden ale. Slightly tangy, yeasty finish.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is very yeasty and peppery, ripe banana. Lightly phenolic. Spices, especially clove/allspice, some bubble gum. Flavour is very fruity and phenolic, banana, overripe fruit. Sweet Belgian pale malt. Comes across too heavy and sweet. Carbonation could be dialled up a bit too, to make the body feel lighter. Fairly greasy/heavy mouthfeel and a bit of a chemically finish. Not a great example at all.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2005
Nice head. Initially like a yesty Unibroue, but then Sour and acidic. Not finishable. Too dry, too carbonated. cloves are shocking to palate. Lemongrass does only sour it further. Medicinal.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2009
12 ounce bottle at Capital Ale House Downtown. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a large head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma of yeast, banana, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is bready and yeasty with huge citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light peppery spice also. Full bodied. Nice beer.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
355mL courtesy of tastybeer. Pours a cloudy, deepish yellow with a billowing, bright white, forced carbonation head that settles quickly with no retention or lace. Aroma of cloves, overripe bananas, pineapples, phenols. Taste is sweet, boozy, grainy, sugary, cloying with spicy alcohol. Bubbly, prickly, high carbonation palate. 9.3% is very apparent.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 12oz bottle tasted along side Prophecy at Zeno’s in State College, PA. Clear amber yellow color. Has the proper nose of a tripel, with sweet sugars and spicy, estery yeast notes. Crisp, fresh tasting, properly bitter and mildly dry. Very fizzy, full of the Weyerbacher yeast, which I really don’t care for, but otherwise and OK beer. Not one of the best.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2004
Slightly hazy amber-orange; good off-white head. Banana, bubblegum esters abundant in the nose, more than in most German Weizens! Soft sweet taste with sourish background, again completely ester, AND diacetyl. Fruity, seems not completely fermented. If this is supposed to be a triple - for chrissakes, then it ought to have been fully attenuated! Finish yields rosewater. Rather full-bodied with restsugars, well carbonated. I’m underawed. Depending on what it was supposed to be, agreed, but it is underattenuated under any circumstance.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
A very dry bread flour on crusty crumbs...A citrusy shampoo perfume dominates this light body...Does not taste its strength and could be a very deceptive yet delectable summer evening brew...

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2004
A good triple. Belgian dubbels and triples are not my favorite styles, but I have to commend Weyerbacher on this brew. It's super malty, very alcoholic, and has overtones of citrus, yeast, sugar candy, and riesling. I found it to be too sweet and a little cloying, but I respect what they have accomplished with this one. I laid 6 down, and I will re-rate after a year or so.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle. Golden yellow body, smallish white head. Sweet alcohol dominates the aroma. In the flavour, sweet malt gives way to a pushy dry alcohol. Touch of fruitness. Average palate. Disappointing, since I have high hopes for Weyerbacher stuff. I’d rather have a Blithering Idiot though.
