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.

Petkus331 (329) - 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.

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.

The Etruscan (567) - Tuscany, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
White weak head. Amber colour. Aroma is malty, fruity (citrus, apple and apricot) with light spicy notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (apricot and peach), ending in a fruity (apricot jam) finish. Medium bodied.

emr454 (8) - New York, USA - APR 11, 2015 does not count
Bottle from Wegmans in Syracuse. Poured cloudy with a quickly disappearing head. Golden/orange/amber appearance. Aroma is yeasty with clove and dough, and a little tart. Taste is doughy, bready, more cloves and classic Belgian yeast taste. Malty, crisp and effervescent finish. The alcohol is well hidden! Overall great Belgian trippel.

katrinaez (412) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle and tap. Bottle has more yeast and sediments, obviously. More bitter and flavor, less banana than tap.

ScottyH (8) - Okemos, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2015 does not count
Light golden color with a thick head. Smells a bit sour, it’s possible that it turned, as there was a bit of sediment

kramer (5346) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold body under a one inch frothy white head that slowly faded to a thin covering. The nose is sweet and fruity with candi sugar, bready malt, light yeastiness, lighter notes of pear and alcohol. The flavor is a little too sweet for my tastes in the style, of which I’m not that huge a fan of as a whole. Sweet and fruity with a prominent alcohol warmth on the finish. Medium to full bodied and a bit chewy with fizzy active carbonation. Meh, probably my least favorite beer from Weyerbacher’s standard line-up.

Bottle. Hazy golden color. Citrus aroma. Sweet citrus flavor. Lemon grainy after taste. Thicker than normal triple texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Draught at Edison Ale House, Newark, NJ; 10 oz
Cloudy golden color with small compact head. I expected more from Weyerbacher, but this is just one more sterile American attempt at Belgian styles, resulting in a boozy sweet beer, with strong bubblegum character, and relatively low bitterness; impression of pond water.
I’m not impressed.
