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.

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

Hazy golden colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Medium sweet taste with aroma of apricot and some banana. Light bitter finish. A bit watery but easy drinkable.

77ships (3763) - 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.

DrWally (50) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
bottle, 33cl at home. Rather typical tripel with lack of character. Compared to Valeir extra and Valeir blond, somehow disappointing.

BarossaLuke (539) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2013
Light amber in colour, has quite a bit of sediment floating around. Definite Belgian aroma of stone fruits and bath salts. Alcohol is noticeable but not hot or fusel.

nealblind (754) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Clear amber pour with noticeable sediment. Big white head. Musty yeast aroma, bananas and pineapples and strong pepper. Tastes like a yeasty single belgian ale. Alcohol is well hidden. Flavor is relatively mild pugent barley. A good inoffensive (not overly alcoholic or yeasty) trippel can be hard to find. This fits the bill.

Cuso (4561) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to bartlebier. Golden color with thick white head. Sweet malt, honey, Belgian yeast in aroma. Taste, sweet malt, some fruits. Alcohol is well hidden. Aroma is more promising than taste, but overall drinkable beer.
