BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Du Bocq
Belgium
bocq.be

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A triple blond that is both simple and complex. Simple thanks to the method that releases a sweet zest at the tip of the tongue that is joined by a bitterness that rapidly makes its presence known in the mouth. Complex because the raw materials release their full individual flavours, each equally robust with the bitterness of hops and supple malt flavours. A brewing method that has all the hallmarks of a victory worthy of the name Waterloo.

A reasonable triple, but not one I would recommend too strongly. The aroma was a bit weak and it lacked the crispness of a classy triple and a slightly unpleasant aftertaste.

** This is now "Waterloo triple blond," at 8.0%. The listed brewer is now Anthony Martin in Waterloo, Be. **

One of the better Belgian triples I've had. Very subtle, smooth, no funky flavors. It hides the alcohol very well, as a Belgian should. Got in an Antwerp (beer heaven) grocery for the price of a Bud in the US.
