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.

Slightly hazy appearance with medium head. Typical Belgian ale aromas, slightly yeasty, medium length, quite light for triple style beer.

Ik drink heel graag tripel maar dit was een beetje een teleurstellend biertje voor mij.

Hazy golden colour, big white head which lasts long time. Taste is sweet and fruity, low bitterness. Medium carbonation. Some alcohol in the aftertaste. Overall decent beer but a little too sweet for my taste.

Bottle, 33cl. It’s a hazy golden beer topped by a big, white head leaving some coarse lacings. The aroma is sweetish and fruity with a touch of cellar and perfume. Sweet, white sugar flavor with quite a lot of fruityness. Some bitterness and a herbal, grassy touch. Medium body and a nice carbonation level. Sweet finish. Overall, decent, but it’s too sweet and quite simple. 140724
