Val-Dieu Triple is the result of a long fermentation, scrupulously followed by the brewmaster. Its deep yet soft bitterness does not interfer with the discovery of its components. The taste of the hop comes through, naturally aromatized, accompanied by an alcoholic after taste. It can be associated with refined dishes and ranks among the great beers. It may be found in the some of the most exclusive restaurants.

Ingredients: Pilsen malt, Saaz and Spalter hops, sugar, live yeast, natural water from the region.

330 ml. bottle purchased @ Delhaize. BBF 23/07/2016. Hazy orange, small lacing white head. Nose is raw dough big time with powder sugar & lots of esters, green apple, odd & oddly inviting just like raw dough. Taste is a bit more standard, fish guts yeast with plenty of esters, green apple but still mixed with some sweetish raw dough, lightly phenolic & faintly medicinal,…. Yeasty & tad higher carbonation. In some ways overly Belgian for me but not without interest given the peculiar big raw dough sweetness & taste. Intriguing. Def. not bad even if a tad odd.

Foam: large creamy white head, but not too long retention leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Colour: hazy dark golden, almost orange Aroma: white sugar, honey, floral, touch of lemon Taste: high carbonation, yeast tones, straw, honey, floral tones and white sugar, easy on the tongue, very well hides it’s 9% AVB, light fruits and some grass, later on a slight sourness comes in, quite tasty, more hoppy and less sweet than typical triple but I don’t like this kind of triple very much because of this slight sourness above mentioned.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden body with a large creamy white head. Nose is Belgian yeast tones, grains, straw, honey, floral tones, honey and hints of heather flowers and white sugar. Taste is white sugar, honey, floral heather tones, Belgian ale yeast and hints of banana and mild clove. Medium crisp body, high carbonation. Decent enough tripel, but not too impressive.

Yellow with light haze. Nice balance of sweet fruitiness and yeast. Smooth and dangerously easy to drink.

yourilevesque (577) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Très belle triple qui présente chacune des caractéristiques de ce style légendaire: blonde dorée, tête mousseuse à souhait et onctuosité à profusion! Nez de jeunes fleurs des champs, de trèfle et de miel. Un nez que l’on aime autant au crépuscule d’été sur la terrasse que dans un chalet après le ski en hiver! en bouche le liquide est d’une rondeur et d’un moelleux absolument merveilleux! L’onctuosité et la rondeur de cette bière ne sont ponctués que par des chaudes flaveurs de clou de girofle qui ajoutent avec justesse une touche légèrement épicée à cet élixir elfique.
