Waterloo Triple 7

I acquired this one a long time ago, and it has been sitting in my “to taste” crate for ages. But tonight, I couldn’t escape if I wanted to: I am finally facing my Waterloo.

I think when I first saw this beer from Brasserie du Bocq, I figured it was a bit of a gimmick, but actually it delivers on taste.

Typical for a strong blonde Belgian ale, it’s got a subtle, creamy mouthfeel, with a bitterness that leads toward grapefruit pith, though in this case doesn’t quite get there. It has some lovely candy lemon drop notes too. It’s not hugely complex, perhaps, but it’s very decent and respectable.

In all, an enjoyable beer. Waterloo, I’m not sure I’ll promise to love you for ever more, but if offered another, how could I ever refuse?
