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 from Total Wine. The monk on the label urging silence has been replaced by two monks carrying a barrel. Beer pours expectantly with great head that dissipates quickly. Aroma signals it's big on alcohol, but taste is a big disappointment. Cloying candi-sugar sweetness, in-your-face clove phenolics and harsh back-of-the palate bitterness doesn't bring the right balance to make it a worthy BelgianTrippel.

Currently enjoying my fourth bottle (on a fourth separate occasion! lol) from a six pack of this my wife picked up for me a few weeks ago, had not previously had a beer from Weyerbacher in years. This brew is true to style from start to finish, with notes of bubblegum and candy on the nose, but in a distinctly clean and fresh - rather than musty and rustic - way. The flavor features clove and other spices along with a soft fruity note of pear and green apple. Notes of banana also, as described. Dry - rather than syrupy - estery notes, with a mild warming booziness in the finish. Distinctly pear fruit aftertaste. Just an impressive rendition of the style, especially considering it is a relatively mass-produced brew. Well-executed, approachable, drinkable, this Belgian tripel is comparable to Victory's Golden Monkey, and subjectively at least I do prefer this. The smooth natural bottle-conditioned carbonation really is exquisite! Highly recommended!

Bottle. Pour is somewhat unimpressive. Little head and no lacing. Aroma is impossible to review. Fruit? Golden kaluba? Hard to pinpoint. Alcohol is undetectable. A slight sourness in the beginning. Gumball penny arcade. That candy coating attacked by a sour sweet tart? Then some flatness. I had a big question mark over my skullcap as I drank it. The lack of alcohol was prominent as it was strong. But there was some warming up in the olfactory. Flirting with genius. Almost....there.
