look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Hazy dark golden, big head, moderate lacing.
Smells of wheat, low banana and apple, some spiciness.
Yeasts are felt from the start, with a chunky fruitiness and lots of spice. Decent amount of banana, but bigger acidic apple, pear, green grape, and also a mild citrus feel. Lots of clove, some pepper, faint anise seeds and vanilla. A dense wheaty malt, with notes of caramel, honey and Belgian sugars, reminding of sugar coated biscuits. Herbal hops in the finish, with a mild bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste along with a nice alcoholic warmth.
Carbonation is somewhat big, but refreshing and prickly.
A nice tripel, hits the right notes, but doesn't really have a "wow" factor. Great for beginners.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle that I picked up in Belgium. I have a tin sign of theirs so I've been wanting to try the beer.

Golden and clear with a moderate white head and a small stream of rising bubbles. Aroma has hints of honey and fruit and maybe a slight funk. Flavor is semi sweet with black pepper and a slight bitterness. A moderate carbonation that seems to make each sip rise to the top of your mouth.

A good beer but nothing outstanding.

I was a bigger fan of the quad 8. It has a golden body with tons of carbonation. The aroma once the foam settled was very spicy form the yeast but and the flavor was about the same at first. But after taking a few drinks it seemed like the flavor started to balance out well with some malt tones. It had a thicker than most feel for a blonde. I had this in a bottle and on tap. The tap was better but there was not that much of a difference.

Serving type: on-tap

Not my favorite kind of Blonde Beer, calling it a triple is in my 'belgian' opinion somewhat overdone.
It has a ABV of 7,5% and it goes down quite easy, altough a bit overcarbonated, I had to be carefull no to burp all the way with this brew. I woun't be drinking this one again because the whole experience is a bit 'light' and very neutral. And then you have a whole description on the bottle that this 'd been the beer the soldiers in the battle of Waterloo gainded strenght on... wtf? Poor sodds...

3.23/5  rDev -15%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Very bubbly yellow pour with a massive amount of head. The lacing and retention are beautiful.

S: Very spicy aroma that is full of clove and banana. Very sweet, dominated by Belgian yeasts. The balance seems to be a bit off.

T: The taste is pretty balanced surprisingly, but exceedingly average. Malty with a baseline of Belgian yeasts and banana. Nothing jumps out and grabs you. It seems like it wants to taste better, but it doesn't.

MF: Overcarbonated, but it does go down easily. It's medium bodied on the tongue with no booze noted at all.

O: Easy drinking triple that won't blow you away, but is a nice introduction to the style. I can't say I'd buy it again.

330ml bottle. Apparently 'allied troops' drank this stuff during the Battle of Waterloo. Now who would that be, given current military terminology?

This beer pours a hazy pale yellow hue, with two fingers of thin foamy white head, which settles at a due pace, leaving a ring of ebbing lace around the glass. It smells of fruity malt, a bit of funk, and earthy, drying hops. The taste is sweet grainy malt, wild yeastiness, some tropical, yet still generic, and meaty, fruit, leafy hops, and a mild warming alcohol. The carbonation is soft, and very much in the background, the body medium weight, and not un-smooth. It finishes clean - moderated sweetness amongst a soft, edgy, multi-pronged dryness.

A pretty decent tripel, the booze well integrated, and fruity in that balanced Euro manner.

330 ml stubby bottle, as Waterloo Triple 7, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Very pale straw coloured beer, huge white head. Nice aroma of grassy and herbal hops (Saaz and Spalt), also some mildly spicy notes. Refreshing flavour, light bodied for its strength, some sweetness but not too much. Some herbal notes, the hops are noticeable. Easy drinking.

Poured 330ml bottle into a chalice within best before end.

A:
Slight hazy honey-dark orangish hue with rich white frothy head that well retain and leave massive lacing ring around the glass along its downwards passage. Carbonation is high and fizzy also yield plenty of small roaring bubbles pile to the head.

S:
Upfront by yeasty and fruity ester reminiscent of plums, prunes and raisins strengthen by bready malt, honey and somewhat peppery.

T:
Fruity and citric zesty take a lead reinforce by sweetness from malt which is slight bready. Hop also there to balance the fruity and sweet portions of this brew by lending a touch of mild bitterness and some spice.

M:
The body is medium, semi-smooth mouthfeel, fizzy high carbonated and dry finish.

D:
Well sipping beer. Alcohol is well hidden. I took very short time to consume it all very tasty and high drinkable.

Cork and caged 0.75cl bottle, best before 12 Sept 2011, drank on 15th Jan 2011.

Golden body, white head, looked good.

Citrusy, yeasty aroma.

The taste also fairly citrusy and yeasty, very pleasant.

Impressed, light bodied but with a kick.

Very easy to drink, more please!
