OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 330 ml bottle. Misty yellow color. Big coarse greyish head. Limited aroma of sweet citrus and unripe banana. Light wheaty, light fruity and very mildly hopped flavors. Light- bodied for the style. Crisp, with a little watered down mouthfeel . Short acidic finish. An absolutely drinkable beer, but lacks character.

Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Bready, overtly yeasty flavor. I enjoyed the other Val Dieu’s I’ve sampled, but not this one. Flavor was ’off’ to me. Weak aroma, nothing special.

vyvvy (5886) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Pours golden / blond with a large frothy white head. The aroma is very bready and malty with rich toffee and a good amount of yeast. Medium body with fairly crispy with a good amount of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with pils-like malt, rich breadiness and clean earthy yeast. the finish has some hops and pepper. A good beer, but nothing to go out of your way for.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy straw gold color with a medium white head. Smells of some citrus, and a little bit of spice, but mild overall. The taste had a definite little funkiness to it, almost a slight sourness that really didnt work for this beer. It was fruity for sure, spices were held to a minimum. The slight sourness had a lingering effect in the aftertaste that realy turned me off as well. Better options out there.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2007
draft @ redlight redlight. Fient citrusy aroma, some sugars, spicy hops. Pours orange/blonde. Citrusy, some dry sugars, hints of noble hops enough to make their presence known and provide a slight bitterness. There’s some fruit evident, slight apple skin flavor, finishes really dry.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2007
330ml bottle. Soapy white head with good retention. Pale golden, partial cloudy. Nice lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of spicies and fruits. Taste of brown sugar, ripe fruits and a vanilla touch - in other words overrun by far too much sweetness. Dry ending and soft carbonation (22.07.2007).
