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.

Er staat tripel em blond in de omschrijving maar het is meer een kruising tussen blond en pilsner. Het geheel is lekker en drinkt goed weg.. Het is alleen niet speciaal en heeft weinig diepgang. Lekker maar basic.

Hazy amber pour with small white head. Aroma of yeast, spice and clove. Taste of malt, yeast, spice, slightly sweet and a dry finish. Higher carbonation when cold then mellowed out as it warmed. Not bad.

Bottle. Tasting session at Qbrick. From notes. Stewed peaches, honey, nori (dried seaweed), licorice, and cinnamon . Not bad at all, but some unusual flavors and a bit light for a tripel.

Borresteijn (4407) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2013
On tap at De Zotte, poured in a stone mug so no colour description. Airy white head. Aroma is sweet, light malty, hint of bread, metal, loads of sweet spices, aniseed, coreander. Flavour is likewise, quite sweet and spicy, light metallic bitter finish. Light-bodied, flat carbonation. Not very enjoyable.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2013
33cl, bb 04-03-2014. Dorée, col blanc léger. Arôme est classique belge, note fleurie t fruitée, léger douceur sucrée et de malt caramel-pâle. Palais est encore ici très belge, et assez ennuyant, note houblonnée noble, Levure tirant sur les esters, malté avec une pointe de carapils et cette douceur maltée typique du style. Fini grains, doux, typique et rien de nouveau à y voir, restant néanmoins correcte.
