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.

IslandHaole (1251) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2005
A clear Amber color with a small off-white head. Scent of bread with orange marmalade. Alcohol present in the nose. A sweet, tangy unusual flavor that doesnt work for me. Thin with a funky salty aftertaste. As much as I love Belgians, this one fails to impress.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2005 A mix of fruit flavors going on here, but I cant really pinpoint exactly which. Would be interested to see how this one ages. A fairly standard Belgian Tripel. Solid, but nothing too amazing compaired to other Belgian Tripels.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Poured a clear effervescent amber with a fizzy off-white head. Sweet aroma of apples and pears. Taste was considerably dry, with hints of flavor reminescent of the aroma. Not as complex or drinkable as other belgian-styles Ive had. Still, a worthy effort from a "pretty good but not blow your socks off good" brewery.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2005
This pours with a whitish, generous head. The smell suggests honey and something metallic, maybe iron. The taste is warm and round, masking the alcohol well with its sweetness.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2005
Hazy orange body, thin off-white head. Strong fruit aroma with bread and straw notes and a way to evident alcohol tone. Tart fruity and citrusy flavor, sharp and rather unbalanced.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2005
Smooth transistion from top to bottom, definite yeast overtones though could just be the run I bought

ivan9856 (191) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2009 From the 12 oz. bottle, this ale pours slightly hazy and golden in color, cider-like in its appearance and effervescence; their was a small white, quickly disappaiting head and no lacing. There is a slight malt aroma with some hops and fruity spice. Initial palate is mildly sweet; banana, and refreshing lemon citrus and apple cider-like mid-palate; short, tangy aftertaste; some alcohol warming. January 24, 2009 update: 500 ml corked and caged bottle revealed a more "mature" beer. Bigger and better head; strong spice and alcohol nose, and delicious, well-rounded palate. High ABV. Unable to ascertain bottling date.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 19, 2005
(Sudafed and zicam taken before rating, my nose is refusing to work tonight) Pours a slightly hazy golden color, off white head. Aroma is malty apples. Flavor is banana cloves, sweet malt, and lemon. A little cardboard stale hoppiness as well. Thanks to Will Blake for this one!

agl108 (1198) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2005
UPDATED: APR 19, 2005 12 oz. bottle. Beer pours a dark gold with a very thin head. Honey and lemon aroma. Coriander and banana esters shock the taste buds. This one has a bit of a kick to it; the candi sugar leaves a fruity alcohol taste in my mouth. Very sweet...I definitely wouldnt want to drink more than one of these. I wonder if Id like this better if it werent bottle conditioned.

schocha610 (2) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2005 does not count
This beer was full of flavor with a nice smooth finish. You can definitely taste the candi-sugar which adds a hint of fruit taste. The price is reasonable and the aftertaste was enjoyable. I had this one on tap and would welcome it again.
