Friday's Beer !

Thanks to my Vancouver connection:

Say hello to .............. Waterloo Tripel !

If you fancy yourself a Napoleon then here's a beer to take you either up or down a notch.

Brewed by: Brasserie du Bocq, set up in 1858 by Martin BELOT, still a 100% family concern, remains one of the last traditional Belgian breweries.

Located in the heart of the Condroz, wonderful tourist region, this dynamic company still uses the traditional manufacturing process of top-fermentation beers with secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Waterloo Tripel

My senses always aroused by a new Belgian ... especially if she's a strong beer.
The pour into the happy glass produces a lively pale yellow body that is slightly cloudy with little floaters and a pure crisp head of blonde/white froth that takes a few minutes to settle down.

First whiff is a pleaser ... those fabulous floral hops that come through like fresh cut grass and apple blossoms. PROMISES!

The draught produces just what I've come to expect from such a beer. There's a hint of fruit and slight acidity with a thrill of sweetness then the creamy body insinuates over the palate... then a slight bitterness and some banana on the end.

There is a lingering mellow aftertaste and then there's another sip .... repeat as necessary.

The Happy Glass empties all too quickly!

First rate I say ... no disappointments here.

But of course there are OTHER opinions!
