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.

Triple en prétendue imitation belge, de 9,3 % abv avec du malt pilsner !!! J’ai rarement vu une étiquette avec aussi peu d’informations .. seulement le niveau abv, point final. Mais pour mettre le dessin d’un moine idiot en cave, là on a trouvé les moyens .. Bref … mon exemplaire était à 1 mois avant sa date, c’est-à-dire les 2 ans préconisés par le brasseur. Couleur doré moyen, à la clarté brillante. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, très vives. Mousse blanc cassé, stable à 2 mm, mais seulement alimentée par les bulles qui poussent en-dessous. Arôme de sureau qui domine tout et noie les autres arômes, sauf un peu de paille sèche. 1ère bouche souple avec un malt léger dominé par le sureau, et une pointe de coriandre. Arrière-bouche tout à fait déséquilibrée, et fort vilaine. 2ème qui ne change rien. Arrière-bouche peut-être pire que la 1ère. 3ème toujours au sureau .. à mon avis, ils ont mis l’arbuste entier dans le brassin !! Arrière-bouche sans aucune élégance. Longueur qui fatigue … Jambes lisses. Levure qui semble correcte. Alcool tout à fait inefficient, il n’apporte rien à l’ensemble. Finale médiocre. CONCLUSION : ce n’est pas avec cela que les USA vont faire de la triple belge … c’est le moins que l’on puisse dire !!! Et d’ailleurs le moine sur l’étiquette vous fait signe de vous taire !!! Il a compris ...

12 oz. bottle. Poured a slightly hazy straw/gold with a 1/2" white bubbly head. Mild Belgian yeast aroma with scents of bubblegum, banana and clove. Sweet flavor with all of the above present. Mild flavor of some apple and pear. Medium bodied with a mild alcohol burn. Very nice.

Pours a deep golden amber. Frothy white head leaps from the pour. The nose slightly biscuity malt is notable, but then comes clove and maybe pepper. Taste is a nice balance of malt, some plum, date, clove, and banana. Mouthfeel is medium with medium/high carbonation. Overall, this is quite good.

Over carbonated. Sweet with some banana flavors but more fruity from Belgian Esther's not bad overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got home tired from work and poured a bottle into a Sam Smith’s pint glass and... it was gone before I hardly noticed it. Easy drinking and to my surprise on pulling up RateBeer it is a 9.3% alcohol brew. Frankly, I didn’t even notice what this looked like in the glass, but it had a small and rapidly vanishing head after a vigorous pour. Good yeasty tripel aroma, redolent of fruit and mild spices. Pleasant sweet flavor, carbonation up front, medium body, definitely worth another try when I’m more alert.

The alcohol is too up front. Try to avoid this one as it usually means instant headache. Have heard the same from two other serious beer drinkers.

Thanks to my Vermont friends for this one, Canada Thanksgiving 2016. Hazy golden colour with fizzy-bubbly head, short retention and minimal lacing. Nice aromas of pears, Belgian Ale yeast and other sweetness. Hints of vanilla and candy notes. Fruity taste with the yeast. Alcohol is well-hidden.

BB Backlog, Bottle in 2010 shared with James and Pat, pours hazy golden orange color with smaller white head and not much lace to note. Smell and taste are sweet fruit, belgian yeast, candy sugar, toffee, and other rich layered notes. Medium to full mouthfeel.

I drink too much Monde and love it so. Occasionally I try other tripels not expecting much. This at least exceeds my meager expectations. Pours a slightly cloudy and highly effervescent golden with small, disappearing white top. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum - pretty nice. Flavor is more malty with spice and banana in the background. A little rough on the palate and not exactly smooth. Decent.
