COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Head: white, medium, frothy, avg. retention. Colour: amber, hazy. Aroma: perfume/flowery, fruit, honey, some dry/sourish notes, light alcohol. Taste: honey, dry, slightly spicy and bitter. A tripel dominated by flowery and honey-like notes. Maybe a bit too luscious.

ruigo (1462) - 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.

Waterloo Triple Blond staat er op de fles. Goudgeel, magere kraag. Ruikt melig zoet, smaakt melig zoetig, ergens een hint van mout. Niet al teveel body. Zwak.. Erg zwak.

Vells (925) - Riga, LATVIA - MAY 14, 2015
Decent beer, but low of Tripel expectations. Too carbonated in order to hide watery profile. Some maltiness, light caramel, slender fruitiness, bit yeast. Moderate sweetish al lthe way. Not bad, but one-timer

Melnis (280) - LATVIA - MAY 13, 2015
Well pretty much below expectations for this beer, typical Belgian with taste of triple. Appearance is cloudy and foam sets in 5 seconds

JanEric (1108) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from AH. Lots of carbonation, golden colour, small head though. Herbal taste, a lot of hebrs, too much imo. Dominates the maltiness and hops.
