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.

imdownthepub (11946) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2005
Bottle Conditioned at The Criterion, Leicester, (RB Crawl). Gold to straw colour, struggling head. Sweet vanilla like beer with a spicy aroma. Some clove and orange in the body but a little cloying and mixed up. Light body but mostly unimaginative.

Yeasty, ’Nilla Wafer nose; Cloudy honey-yellow color, big fluffy white head. Orangy taste with some vanilla tones. Dryish end. Thin for a tripel with a quick profile, but OK.

JonMoore (2033) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2005
Clear golden colour with a large foamy white head, good lacing. Yeasty, bready aroma with some light fruit in the background. Taste is sweet; sugar, peaches, oranges, spices and vanilla. Very nice; medium bodied, lightly carbonated, very smooth, nice mouthfeel, well hid alcohol. Enjoyable stuff.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2005 Hazy yellow with a big bubbly white head. Yeasty aroma, candy sugar with some spice and alcohol. Not a whole lot of flavor, spicy fruitiness, but very sweet almost artificial. A little let down to say the least.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Slightly sweet and a bite of alcohol in the finish, but otherwise uneventful. Not bad, however, and I recommend trying it at least once.
