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.

pintbypint (2938) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 26, 2011
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.

MrHangover (3211) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle. There’s not much to say about this beer, only that it’s as average as it can get. Hazy blonde pour big white head. Yeasty, moderate fruit aroma. Sweet flavour, tingly mouthfeel. Just a Belgian tripel, that’s all. Meh.

Nez: Malté, orange, levure Bouche: Maltée, orange, épicée, herbe grasse, alcool Bière de caractère avec une attaque franche sur le fruité qui laisse vite la place à l’amertume et l’alcool avec une sensation crémeuse.

overtheline (82) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Labled waterloo triple blond abv 8%. 330ml bottle pours hazy yellow amber with big white head. Warm spicy nose with citrus and ripe fruit. Very sweet taste, (bit too sweet) with lots of ripe, bubblegummy fruits and some woody spice. Fairly high carbonation and quite light bodied, slightly thin. A good easy drinking tripel but a bit too sweet.

Silvan7 (862) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 17, 2015
On tap @ Ovidius Busto Arsizio. GIALLO DORATO velato, schiuma bianca grossolana non molto persistente. Aroma non troppo intenso, caratteristico delle tripel. pesca sciroppata, lievito belga, zucchero candito, alcoolico. gusto dolce amabile, poco amaro, decisamente fruttato ed alcolico. calda rotonda, poco corposa non molto carbonata. abbastanza equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica.

Hamirubi (308) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2015
33cl bottle at the Les Halles Saint-Gery / Sint-Gorikshallen, Brussels. Hazy blonde to orange, even almost an amber triple with fast disappearing white foam collar. The aromas hint at citrus, lemon zeste, sugary sweetness and orange fruits. The taste has clear malt notes, and make up for a round full mouth flavour with sugars and alcohol ending. A lovely triple.

Bawelt (72) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 12, 2015
On sent que c’est une bière plutôt correcte voire bonne pour les amateurs de malt pilsener et de houblon saaz... dont je ne fais pas partie. Nez quasi inexistant sinon une pointe houblonee. Bouche plutôt équilibrée et pour cause : très peu de corps, d’arômes. Finalement, le houblon assez fin et bien dosé à mon goût fait plutôt office de cache misère...

ruigo (1583) - PORTUGAL - JUN 2, 2015
33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Floral hops, malts and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more on the sweet side. Overall, a bit normal and dull tripel.
