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.

330ml brown bottle. Golden pour, hazy with some particles, large foamy white head. Good thick clingy lace. Fruity nose, syrupy apple, honeyorange, faint spice. Flavour has some yeast spiciness, sweetish, subtle fruitiness. Dryish finish, a little alcohol. Medium body, average carbonation. Drinks well, but there are more interesting tripels around.

Een lekkere tripel. Zoeter dan dan de meeste soortgenoten. Aanwezig hop, bloesem. Dikke schuimlaag, die langzaam wegtrekt.

Robe blonde reflets dorés, mousse moyennement persistante. Nez élégant entre malt, houblon et fruit, pointe de levure. Bouche à l’attaque crémeuse, de l’amertume, de la fraîcheur mais une longueur assez moyenne, finale fruitée. Une triple facile à boire.

Tap@Delirium Cafe Taphouse bar. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med fluffigt vitt skum. Dofter av gröna örter och jäst. Ljuvligt len och rund smak med en skön pepprighet.

Svesse (6716) - 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.

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
