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 (2976) - 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.

330ml at home. Pours with a big white head that dissapears fast. Strong pils malts, almost a bit sour. Not a very good beer.

Pour une fois que je m’enflamme pour une bière belge. C’est que tout y est maîtrisé et réussi. Le goût est doux et fort. La bouche ronde et ample. Le malt la levure et le houblon sont équilibrés. Miam

330ml bottle - shared by Kairi - thanks!
Pleasant floral perfumey aroma, sweet, pleasant pilsner malts too, lovely and light. Pale, hazy, large tight head. Very soft palate. Nice soft grains, perfumey floral hops. Some slight soapiness in the finish, a little tingly and almost metallic. Very easy to drink, covers the alcoho l very well. Very nice tripel.

MrHangover (3305) - 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.
