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.

Poured a cloudy orange with a fairly big head. Nice citris aroma and a complex taste of sweet malts. Well-balanced, well made Belgian triple.

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.

Metalchopz (3136) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
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.

tekstr1der (426) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2016
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.

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2016
One of the Belgian inspired Weyerbacher ales, purchased at Prik & Tik in Zele, Belgium. Egg-white, regularly shaped but loosely structured, quickly dissipating, non-lacing head eventually leaving not much more than a very thin rim of airy bubbles around the edge and vanishing altogether in the end; warm, pure golden colour with ochre-ish hue, clear with sparse bubbles and a fog of yeast bits throughout, becoming equally misty and more orangey with deposit. Not unpleasant aroma of dried apricot, yellow passionfruit, dried banana (not so much in the old bubblegum way), old cake, calvados, dry cookies, dried flowers, mandarin peel, fermenting apple somewhere, clove-like phenols, hints of damp straw, faint caramel, weak varnish-like solvents and, luckily also very weak, some DMS (cooked cabbage). Crisp, sweetish onset with dried banana, some peach and traces of white candi sugar, unripe plum sourishness surrounding this sweetness, spritzy but finely structured carbonation, smooth and somewhat oily malt sweetness in the middle, bit caramelly while the fruitiness lingers but not in an overly estery way, rather clean actually, leading to a dryish finish with ongoing juicy malt sweet, some spicy phenols and retronasal DMS again, soft herbal hop bitterishness and a firm glow of jenever- or calvados-like alcohol on the brink of astringency, becoming a bit much in the end, clearly should have been better hidden (which admittedly is often a challenge in this particular style). The concept of tripel, still largely overexposed in Belgium with many very to below average beers as a predictible result of that, has been well understood in this case, and Weyerbacher clearly aims at the top of the quality scale; they succeed in conveying the maltiness, spiciness and alcohol warmth of the better Belgian originals, but the estery fruitiness is cleaner and the DMS, though faint, did bother me a bit - and so did the lack of head stability. In all, decent enough, but definitely not top notch in its class.

750 ml bottle from Tavour. Nose is vanilla caramels, honey wheats cereal, and a hint of bubblegum. Hazy gold with a big off white head. Flavor is moderately sweet and clovey spicy.
