Valeir Divers 33cl bottle from www.belgianbeerstation.com. I’m looking forward to this one. The appearance of the beer is wonderful: a beautiful cristal clear pale golden brew with lots of carbonation. A fizzy thick white head dissapears slowly and not completely, leaving a bit of lacing on the glass. This beer is very inviting in the glass. The smell is very malty and filled with yeast. There’s a little sour touch in the nose and also a clear alcohol presence. First sip is sweet with a bitter hop finish. The body is fairly light with little carbonation. Yeast is also a dominant part of the flavour, leaving a powdery feel in the aftertaste. Overall, this is a tasty strong blond beer that is well balanced. I’d drink this all night long.

Hazy blond colour. Lots of fresh, raw malts in the aroma. Flavour is quite bland. Very light yeastiness. Bitter (almost stale) in the finish.

330 ml bottle pours out a wheat color topped with a white head. Nose is sweet malts some fruit notes apple lemon and a little bit of spice. Taste is more of the cereal grain note some sweetness a little fruit and a nice belg yeast.

corkyrory66 (1265) - BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2015
Triple artisanale de 8,5 % abv (fermentation haute, refermentée .. cela va de soi). Ce qui va moins de soi, c’est la couleur ambrée un peu caramel … Léger voile de levure, très joli. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale tourbillonnante, très vives. Mousse blanc cassé, bien crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, noisettes, haricots blancs, pointe de genièvre. 1ère bouche douce, soyeuse, à la très belle entame, maltée, légèrement épicée. Arrière-bouche pleine, longue, nuancée. 2ème bouche riche à souhait, avec une pointe de Brett. Arrière-bouche large, vaste, complexe. 3ème à la belle rondeur, avec des fruits mûrs, du bois de fût. Arrière-bouche riche et bien équilibrée. Longueur avec une pointe de cognac et de cidre vieux, épice muscadée. Jambes fines, très marquées. Levure fine, épicée, délicate. Très jolie ligne. Alcool très bien, progressif, actif sur les saveurs. Finale à la très belle tenue, et encore d’autres nuances. CONCLUSION : une triple ambrée qui se révèle très originale, très dense, nuancée. En bref importante, voire capitale pour le genre.

Muggus69 (1926) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector BB 20/06/2016 Bright orange body with uniform haze, Holds a small but creamy white head. Restrained aroma; sweet malts, white sugar, faint peppery esters. Full body, creamy texture & carbonation, some boozy warmth. Sweetness continues on the body - white sugar, cereals, pale toffee, with spicy, peppery phenolics. Finish is a slight bit astringent, with a relatively high bitterness & warming booze. Below par sort of Tripel - whilst not bad, it’s somewhat unbalanced.

Winter tripel with a creamy, yellowish white, regular head and cloudy yellowish peach blonde colour. Malty and dried fruity aroma, apple, apricot, dry yeastiness, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Ordinary but well-balanced tripel.

Flaske, 33 cl. Klar, gylden med et rødligt skær, fluffy hvidt skum. Sødlig, gæret, abrikos-fersken-og honning-noter. Krydret, astringerende, fyldig, alkoholisk. Belgisk med belgisk på. Not my cup of beer.

Ik was wat teleurgesteld toen ik deze tripel proefde. Dan zijn er veel en veel betere op de markt
