Previously brewed at DuBocq (Nov 2013)

Waterloo Tripel is brewed on huge amounts of pilsener malt. Aromatic Saazer and Spalter hops are added, but to no further extent than to give it a bitterness equal to a pilsener which gives more room to the beer’s sweetness. The beer is fermented with Du Bocq’s original yeast strain which is responsible for the delicate, spicy expression. After maturation and filtration the beer has a secondary fermentation in the bottle which causes its slight cloudiness.

Hockert (98) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Not that much of aroma to be a Tripel. Nice white head on a light caramel body. The taste is sweet and spicy. Medium body, low bitterness. The finish is a little bit light. In the an alright beer but there are better alternatives out there.

Trappist1 (559) - Diest, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2014
Golden Blond, white head. Malts, little grassy, white sugar, citrus hidden in the back, fruity something. Well carbonated, Malts, yeast, pretty much one straight line. Sweet, bitter ending. Below average, can’t convince me.

Grzesiek79 (3304) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Butelka 0,33. Dobre piwo ale jakos tak delikatnie w smaku. Wyczuwalem mango w nozdrzch oraz gruszke i biale winogrona. W smaku delikatne lekko metne. Ale Piana za to stabilna i spora. Taki lagodny tripel.

angel77 (1091) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el corner, cerca de gascona. 27-01-2014. Color amarillo con espuma blanca persistente. Cuerpo ligero fácil de beber. Aromas dulces y algo cítricos bastante frescos y suaves. Sabores también bastante cítricos con un toque dulce y un muy ligero amargo final. Bastante carbonatacion. Una triple de 7.5 vol que se bebe sin ningún problema. Normal.

tricksta_p (1338) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Typical Belgian aroma of citrus, fruits, yeast, light malts, sweet spices, especially coriander. Flavour is similar, rather sweet. Its relative lightness makes it more of a Belgian Blonde than a Tripel.
