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.

Bottle - enjoyed this triple style. Pours hazy yellow with nice head in tulip glass. Smell of spice, banana and alcohol. Fizzy mouth feel. Taste of clove, sugar and banana. Going to cellar a few and see how it changes with age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy golden. Lots of carbonation. Nose of banana and light clove. Taste sour banana, slightly sweet, alcohol is apparent. Finishes slightly dry with lingering sour bitterness. Not my favorite style but I like a Belgian once in awhile.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a hazy straw color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, and Belgian yeast. Taste of light citrus, banana, bubble gum, and a hint of spice.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Slightly hazy golden with a fast-dissipating head. Nose is big and estery with some wonderful earthy non-hoppy floral notes, a touch of tangerine or papaya, some blonde hay malts, bright peppery dough, and a wee kiss of green banana. Flavor is equally big and complex and estery as nuts. Lots of floral/herbal/spruce notes with mild bitterness with it, some blonde sweet grains, candi sugar, hay, papaya or grains of paradise or passion fruit or something like that, and a bright doughy ester. Amazing Trippel.

njnut (156) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Poured into tulip from bottle. Pours nice golden amber, with a haze. Aroma hits you right away, banana with yeast. Finger of head short lasting retreating to edge. Lacing on glass. Taste is banana, the yeast is evident. It is warming and has a oily mouth feel. Finish has a touch of hay and alcohol. Sweet. Very nice take on a Belgian Tripel.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Lovely sweet aroma with Belgian candidate sugar evident. Beautiful, hazy dark gold with champagne like bubbles and a lasting white head. Banana and clove notes in the flavor. Effervescent mouthfeel. Great balance, fruity sweetness. Incredible! Thanks Falco242! Near perfect.
