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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden with a slight head and no lacing. Strange for a strong Belgian style. Nose is a little sour and maybe some clove. I really like the taste... It is sour and sweet and has a nice finish that just stays a little dry. A great creaminess is very apparent and to my surprise, it is not very spicy. There are a few undertones of spice, but nothing like most tripels. I wouldn’t know that this was a tripel if the bottle didn’t tell me... I think this is a nice beer and is unique in it’s taste and palate. Nice job.

This is a very good beer. Not being a large fan of Belium beers I liked the appearance and flavor of this one. Light in color with a bit of a kick in the taste.

Poured gold, Nice tight white head. Nose has plenty of honey, and I am inclined to say sugar, could be from the description. Sweet, maybe to sweet. There is some banana and yeast. I can’t say this is my favorite style, but this is well made. Creamy, lots more banana, and some clove, and more sweetness. There is also an alcohol warmness coming out, but you can’t really taste it, only feel it. Again, not my favorite style, but good.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Poured a golden color. Aroma and flavors of sugar, honey, sweet fruit, and yeast. Nice warming sensation on finish. Medium bodied.

3.4
aracauna (3616) - Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours a golden body. There’s a good bit of spice in the aroma and a bit of sweetness. Honey makes up much of the malt profile.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Huge honey smell. Huge honey taste. Slightly dryish finish. Sweet. Honey. Sweet. Is this a mead? Are you sure? Light body and sweetness is focused instead of being sugary like in Karmeliet. Very nice.

3.2
wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2005
Lots of honey here! Some spiciness behind the sweetness. Murky honey gold with a small head. Moderate to heavy sweetness with light acidity upfront shifts to a moderately sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic finish. Medium body, oily/sticky texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: Not quite up to par for Weyerbacher.

3.8
bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Classic belgian spicey flavor with no head at all and an off orange color. I can’t believe this has 9.3% alcohol. It can hardly be detected at all. Very nice for the style. Have one.

3.7
Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Hazy gold with a thin head that dissapears quickly. Some lacing. Aroma is bountiful with citrus and malts. Spices come through faintly with clove and coriander. Lemon and banana esters with a light grassiness. Small traces of alcohol. Coriander comes out like mad in the flavor. The bittering hops make themselves known here as well. There is a lot of citrus here as well. The malts are slightly roasty and caramel is apparent. Alcohol is sticking its nose out again. Fuzzy palate with a nice blend of hops and malts with a good backing of esters in the tail followed with alcohol.
