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.

Bottle. Pale amber and cloudy with a thin, resilient white head. Mild orange nose. Coriander on the taste and a familiar Belgian yeast flavour. Finishes clean. Very nice.

The pour is a light orange yellow body with tons of white foamy head. Quite a bit of cascading carbonation. The aroma is sweet and citrusy with a good amount of spice and light caramel malt. Middle is overall a sweet and citrus one with a light coriander and clove spice. The finish has a slight alcohol and strong tripel yeast with light citrus ester. Light carbonation in the mouthfeel with a medium bodied oily mouthfeel. Overall, a pretty good tripel.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Typical Belgian aroma of citrus, fruits, yeast, light malts, sweet spices, especially coriander. Flavour is similar, rather sweet. Its relative lightness makes it more of a Belgian Blonde than a Tripel.
