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.

from Mondial de la Bière, Strasbourg - cloudy dark blond colour with a little persistent white foam; aroma of candi sugar, bananas and esters; full-bodied and very sweet, high carbonation; tons of residual sweetness with notes of overmatured bananas and hints of spices - quite heavy and a bit cloying

hopscotch (10118) - 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.

hopdog (9940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Hazy, medium golden in color with a small white head. Spicy and fruity aromas. Sweet, spicy and fruity tastes. Taste struck me as run of the mill and nothing too special. Fizzy body.

Sammy (9665) - 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.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Oct 19th, 2007: Cloudy yellow-orange color with a medium fizzy white head that burns off steadily. Quick patches of lacing. The aroma is bread, yeast and sweet fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of yeast, fruit (banana) and earthy malt. The finish is spicy with banana and pear aftertaste. Overall this is a pretty good beer, although it is definitely on a lower rung than the world class Tripels out there.

GT2 (9364) - San Diego County, 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.

Scopey (9362) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at my East Croydon beer tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours straw yellow, with a thick foamy white head and pretty high carbonation. The nose is pear, sweet apple, melon and floral. The taste is melon, pear, peach, lemon sherbet, hay, Belgian yeast and straw, with a sweet finish. Overall way too sweet for me.
