Belgian Triple Wheat
This is my third batch of this kit. Friends and family can't get enough of it. Very smooth wheat beer, with a pronounced kick. Nice color and good head retention for a wheat beer.

Needs to be well aerated in order to complete fermentation.

A potent brew
While it's a bit too malty for my personal taste, this beer is a big hit with a wide variety of friends.  It has a potent kick, as well - I've called it "A-D-D" beer with the tag that when you drink a few of these you'll "See Shiny Things," and could tend to get easily distracted.  It's very possible that you'll miss a few details as the afternoon/evening wears on, but the buzz certainly is worth it.

As for the brewing process, I was a bit surprised by the 6.5 gallon instructions, but went with it after a bit of coaching from the Williams brew experts.  I needed a new brew pot, anyway, so it was welcome justification to upgrade and upsize the kettle.  No issues through the brewing/fermenting/bottling segments.  Overall a good beginner/intermediate skill brew.

great triple
I have used this kit twice and the second timed as the base for a mad elf clone, which turned out great.
I would buy an extra wyeast 1214 when pitching the yeast.

The Recipe Needs Fixing
My buddy and I have just started homebrewing.  The Belgium Triple was only our third batch.  The results were good and could have been much better if we knew the recipe process better.  This recipe states to boil 6 gallons of water for before adding the liquid malt extract which was pretty good size in an of itself.  We ended up with better than 6.5 gal of wort and we fermented most of it in a 6.5 gal carboy.  The recipe should be changed to boil 4 gals at most before adding the extract and then adding cold water upon completion to fill-up to the required 5 gal level.  We will definitely try this product again only we'll go with the 4 gal start, not the 6.

An excellent Belgian Tripel that gets even better with age.
I brewed this as my second extract batch and is my best batch so far.  Everyone raves about it and keeps asking for more.  I did a yeast starter to ensure this big beer has proper fermentation.  It was in the primary for one month then racked into the secondary for another 2 months.  When it came down to bottling, I was afraid the yeast may be inactive so I added some Safebrew T58 during the bottling process. This brew only gets better with age.  

I'm down to only a few bottles after 6 months, so this Belgian Tripel will by my next batch.  Definitely try this if you're a Belgian fan.
