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.

Kita (1365) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, poured into Waterloo ceramic bowl. Hazy golden color with long lasting medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is yeasty, grainy, herbal and fruity. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by fruity and yeasty acidity, mouthfeel is crisp, while finish is light bitter. Medium to full body, dry texture and lively carbonation in palate. Not the best one, but still very drinkable...

JaKeAFC (664) - ITALY - SEP 28, 2014
75 cl bottle, 7.5%. Yellow color, almost clear, enormous expanding white head. Belgian yeast smell with pale malts and decent hops, but not thick or tasty as expected from a tripel, seems like a strong ale instead. Medium bodid, carbonated, extra dry finish. Unimpressive but quite ok.
