KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with a small particles of yeast sediment floating throughout with an average size white frothy head and had excellent lacing. The aroma had a strong scent of a flowery hops, light grainy malts and a mild soapy yeast odor with notes of citrus. It tasted moderatley bitter and slightly acidic at first then mellowed into a smooth bitter yeasty flavor with notes of citrus that lingered on the palate for a nice while. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall an outstanding Abbey ale.

La Val-Dieu Blonde es una cerveza fresca y ligera, con una cabeza de espuma persistente y con un carácter fuerte. Es muy digestiva y puede tomarse también como aperitivo. En boca es refrescante y desarrolla un carácter agradable y amargo al final.

prawlie (1496) - ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle. Smooth and lightly dry, clearly more suited to the pint glass than usual for Val-Dieu beers. A decent golden ale rather than an abbey beer.

Een simpel witbier, met een graansmaak, met een prima bitterheid en frisheid. Mooi bier met een dikke schuimlaag.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is yellow to golden colored and has a stable large white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with also tones of citrus, spices and some yeast. The taste is light sweet and malty and has some nice fruity notes. The finish is light bitter and spicy and is long.
