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.

Svesse (6926) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
(Draught at Delirium Tap Bar, Brussels, 23 Oct 2014) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of tropical fruit, pineapple and candy sugar. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and a certain grassy, spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, with lots of tropical fruit. Quite nice.

konungen (155) - - JAN 10, 2015
Grumlig guldig öl med vitt skum. Söt öl med mycket jäst i doft och smak, maltig, lätt fruktig, lite alkohol i smak. Inte dålig men ganska tråkig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and caramel, with a touch of flowers and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of caramel malt and fruit and herbal touches. Bitter and estery finish. Okay, decent but not extraordinary.

Not much going on in this tripel. An aroma of citrus and alcohol and not much more to it.

Xstream (205) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2014
Very malty and quite sweet. When drank cool nice and refreshing. At room temperature it’s a different story. The Malts startte become more prominent and it starts to feel off balance. Mild hoppy on the finish. Nice mouthfeel.

Alengrin (3240) - BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2014
Blonde version of Waterloo Double Dark 8°, with off-white head and colour of old gold, clear. Soapy and grassy aroma, pale malt sweetness, butter, honey, apple peel; smooth, slick palate, a bit resinous, malt sweet, applish, strong carbonation, grassy hops in the finish. Straightforward, tastes a bit ’cheap’.
