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.

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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
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

77ships (4251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. Hazy orange, uneven creamy white head. Esters, perfume, candy sugar, alcohol, faint bitter herbal flower. Sweet sugar, marmalade, orange rind, candy sugar, light honey, plenty of perfume, flower, light faint flower / herbal hops in the back. Candy sugar & orange rind body. Pretty simple, lacking nuances, taste is lots of candy sugar mainly but quite enjoyable all the same.

bottle, 33cl at home. Rather typical tripel with lack of character. Compared to Valeir extra and Valeir blond, somehow disappointing.
