COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

leaparsons (9779) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2005
Hazy gold with a rocky white head. Aromas are sweet candy, sugar, spices and yeast with lemon zest, alcohol and pepper. Flavours are sweet and sugary with grain and more yeastiness. Has mouth-numbing alcohol that isn’t unpleasant. Not especially dry or biiter on the finish. Very decent.

Dorqui (2177) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 30, 2005
Creamy and compact foam, good persistence. Clearly orange color, much fraught and blearyr. Overbearing alcoholic scent with flowery and malty rumors. Powerful and wrapping taste, warm with persistent aromas of wine cellar and mildew. Medium fizz. Long end.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2005
Beautiful pale golden yellow colour. Nice thick foamy head(draught) stay’s on for a while too. Very fruity nose/yasty aswell. Subtile fruity flavour, fresh citrus, alcohol mouthfeel. Also subtile hoppbitters all in a well balanced experience.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy, golden brew with a ful and frothy, white head. Very aromatic almost flowery nose. Refined, perfumy flavours with a dry and bitter palate and lots of warming alcohol. 040901

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2005
Mid gold colour. Hazy, with a scant head. Aroma has zesty orange and peppery spice. More oranges in the flavour - reminded me of marmalade. Some underlying bitterness. The mouthfeel isn’t very expansive but becomes a bit sticky. Seville oranges feature in the bittersweet finish. There’s a warming glow in the aftertaste but the alcohol isn’t to intrusive. No great depth but this is pleasant, clean and (relatively) easy-drinking tripel. 330ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2005
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Good, solid abbaye (Abij?) tripel. Fairly complex aroma with honey, yeast, peach, orange. Sweetish but satisfying.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle, 2003: Mostly transparent golden with a nice large white foamy head, moderately sustaining. Aromas of yeast and candy notes. Flavor is fruity sweet, dough/bread, slight alcohol (though hidden well for the most part).
