Waterloo Triple Hop
It’s all in the name. Waterloo Triple Hop, an amber-coloured beer, is brewed with three different kinds of hop: Magnum bitter and two aroma varieties, Cascade and Citra, that in the dry hopping give an additional aroma boost.
The Waterloo beers commemorate the world-famous battle that was fought here by the troops of Wellington, Blücher and Napoleon Bonaparte in the year 1815.
The entirely restored, historic Ferme de Mont Saint-Jean, just on the edge of the battlefield, is home to a microbrewery and distillery.
When the battle was raging in 1815, this traditional farm built in the shape of a square was converted into a field hospital to treat the British soldiers.
Nowadays you can tour the brewery and its distillery and pay a visit to the museum that tells you all about the Battle of Waterloo.

Colour & Transparency

Waterloo Triple Hop is served in a traditional earthenware chalice, crafted by local artisan potters.
Character, Tastes & Aromas
Fruity, zesty and flowery aromas with touches of citrus (grapefruit) and exotic fruits.
This beer tastes full in the mouth but retains its freshness and yields fruity as well as sweet impressions.
The sweet malt serves to tone down the hop bitter. Hop dominates the finish and is accompanied by a hint of grapefruit and apricot.
Waterloo Triple Hop makes a perfect pairing with tangy dishes such as an escaveche of trout, sashimi, grilled meats with a sauce béarnaise, pre-dinner snacks of pickled vegetables or a clafoutis with stone fruits for dessert.
