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.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - MAR 21, 2013
A cloudy golden orange pour with aromas of banana yeast and clove. A quickly disappearing head that doesn’t lace too well. Sweetness on the tongue with orange and clover. Overall not the best finishes which makes it a bit a disappointing. Overall still enjoyed though!

Dacrza (635) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Date: July 26, 2015... Glassware: Affligem chalice... Occasion: recovering from Shan’s 20th LVR reunion while dealing with the (un)usual water in the basement--this time, a loose flexpipe in the air conditioner... Appearance: soft, hazy, orange amber body; swift, fizzy off-white head thins to a strong ring; .... Aroma: tangerine, candied sugars and some fruity esters--but subtlety of smell suggests this one could be monkish, quiet but powerful ... Palate: soft, lightly textured and vibrant on the tongue, with a fizziness that promises life; creaminess is apparent; aftertaste is brief and rounded... Taste: tart, puckerish and flavorful--grapefruit, apple, spiced alcohol and wine-like grapes--the profile is agreeable but not overwhelming for a tripel; .... Overall: I should note that this is a bottle consumed a few months after bottling; the alcohol is well packaged within a reasonably flavorful ale; the strength is in its softness, but the profile is not as diverse or enjoyable as others are..

chinchill (3013) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2015
12 oz bottle with both a bottled on date [10 May 2011] and, presumably, a best by date of May 2013 - from notes. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a large near white head. The head is not dense but has good retention. Stopping mid-pour, to allow for the head to settle a bit, the beer is still clear and rather aggressive carbonation is visible. Yeasty, fruity, malty aroma that foreshadows, but underestimates the striking flavor palate that comes with tasting. The usual Belgian tripel flavor components of yeast, light malt, banana and cloves -- but these are in much better balance than is often the case, and with a bit more malt flavor showing thru. Slightly sweet and moderately tart. Hints of plums and lemons. High ABV partly hidden in the aroma and, more so, in the flavor, although it does produce some warming and can readily be felt on the tongue. Medium bodied with a crisp and refreshing feel. The finish is not as dry as I’d like. O - This is excellent even by true Belgian standards: plenty of complexity, well-balanced flavors, fine finish and aftertaste. Highly recommended for U.S. fans of tripels.

raphael (1015) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2015
I’d had this ten or so years ago, but don’t remember what I thought about it, now I see it as a strong example of Belgian Tripel/Quad as (expensive) malt liquor, minus the chemical aspects in aroma & flavor. I smell sugar, corn and belgian gas. Golden yellow no head. Flavors of vanilla, peach, sugar and alcohol. thin in the mouth. sweet finish,

BrownALEx (348) - Portland, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2015
12 oz. bottle to tulip. Belgian yeast is strong in the aroma. Sugar cane, banana, spice and yeast dominate the taste. Palate is medium bodied. The 9.3% is hidden very well. Well balanced beer here. Overall, a wonderful interpretation of the style. Will get again.

BlazerT (248) - POLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Teku glass. Bottle. Golden/burnt orange with very thin, white head which dissapears very quickly. Very yeasty, fruity and spicey. Taste is very malty (dough, belgian candy sugar), coriander, pepper, sweet floral notes. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, finish is semi-sweet, strong alcohol warmth. In overall very average tripel

No aroma at first, if you get nose right up to head there’s a nice banana and bubblegum smell. Nice mellow burn with sweet brandy flavor. Light thin texture. Very very good.

Bebum (502) - - MAY 30, 2015
Light amber, cloudy, dense and lasting mousse. Beautiful nose. Medium body, moderate flavor, very hot and lean mouthfeel, avg length. Sweet but well balanced by acidity, very low bitterness. Alcoholic, fruity rather simple flavor, pineapple, yeasty. Not my favorite in the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Petkus331 (352) - Redford, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Aroma is like white bread, very yeasty, with some sweet cereal, lychee, and a touch of bitter hay/dry grass. Appears clear gold, nice streams of bubbles, not much fizz, no lace. Tastes like bread with some peachy-apple jam atop. Palate is a little watery but has some fizz. Overall, nice, a bit simple compared to other Belgians tripels, but it hides the alcohol well.

Lubiere (11170) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light candy sugar, coriander and curacao, alcohol warmth, classic Belgian aroma. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with loads of fruity esters, light cloves, curacao and coriander, alcohol warmth, nicely done. On tap at Jet Rock Terminal B, PHL.
