mephisto (1268) - - JUN 25, 2011
Golden hue with fluffy white head that quickly dissipates, this beer has sweet fruity aroma and flavor. A pretty standard tripel.

PriorL (1579) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle at home. APPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: grains, hops, fruity. TASTE: hops, fruity.

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 (663) - 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 (4217) - 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.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2013
Dorée trouble, dépôt en suspension, pétillance moyenne, très peu de mousse. Maltée, métallique, un rien fruitée, un rien florale, un peu d’amertume sur la fin. Mais une gêne subsiste: d’où vient cette persistance de maïs qui malheureusement me rappelle la Leffe blonde?

Tonkun (758) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Hazy light yellow pour with a finger of head. Apricot, plum, floral, white spice. Good spicy bubble, sweet, dry bitter finish. Simple but good

dasdan (234) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2013
33 cl bottle from de hopduvel in Ghent. Clear golden body with large white head. There is something strange with the aroma of this beer. Not good. But the taste seems to be ok *

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 7, 2013
33cl - Closer of the Valeir tasting range, March 2013. - Very much like a triple-bodied or less ascetic version of a traditional Duvel, with all its complex estery dryness, lively carbonation, but added fruit&yeast sweetness. Some alcohol apparent, this could do with 0.5-1% less and still be tasty enough. Lacks some punch to revive my interest for this style.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy straw yellow with a medium to large, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pear and grape fruity esters, peppery and spicy Belgian yeast, light earthy and spicy hops with notes of Belgian candi sugar.. Flavor is dry and crisp Pils malt, Belgian candi sugar, fermentation derived fruity esters, light hops and bitterness with peppery and spicy alcohol and a dry finish. Full body and moderate carbonation.
