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.

CapFlu (4610) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2004
(750ml bottle) Pours a super cloudy and sediment filled lemonade body with a thin, white head. Interesting multi-motion carbonation. Some bubbles actually seem to be moving at a slower rate than those in the middle of the glass? Sour and yeasty nose. Sweet candy-link flavour with an orangte finish. Biggest discrepancy between aroma and flavour I’ve ever encountered. Very good.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Sour, tart and citrusy aroma with yeast very present also. Cloudy yellow colour with white head that persists nicely. Sweet flavour with mild spiciness and a touch of bitter orange. Tartness re-appears in the finish. High carbonation and lively, effervescent body. Bottle (thanks to MartinT for bringing this one). Ok so I’ll list the crew present at the post-TapNY festival tasting since the rest of you are too lazy to do so... In no particular order: MartinT, CapFlu, Lubiere, Muzzlehatch, MaibockAddict, mkobes and myself).

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2004
750 ml bottle, from post-TAP NY tasting. Fairly sweet yesty nose; light lemony body, very cloudy. Sweet, citrusy taste (oranges), oh my it is sweet...lot of sweet beers that day...some nice hints of Concord grapes towards the end. Pretty fine I think.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2004
Co-rated with the guys at Tap NY, and I am not taking the time to list them all here. Yellow and slightly cloudy. Citrus aroma. Typical spicy, malty flavor.

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 3, 2004
Aroma is mild, boring and rather yeastly. Smells like new tennis sneakers. Pours moderately hazy blonde with frothy white head. Hoppy in the middle. Some sweetness at the end. I cant get over the New shoes smell and taste to this guy though.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - APR 3, 2004
Bottle...pours a slightly hazy blonde with medium head. Aroma of clove, all-spice, banana...Creamy balanced brew that hides the 9% very well. Yummy.

madsberg (10457) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Fluffy white lasting head. Malt, alcahol and sweetness in the aroma. Yeast, sweetness, fruit and light alcahol sharpness in the flavour. Smooth and balanced. Pleasant alcahol burnt in the end at the palate.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Pours a hazy deep golden color, moderate white head, some lace. Aroma is somewhat light, some yeast, spice, and malt. Flavor has some banana, otherwise pretty sweet with hints of honey. Some alcohol takes away from the other flavors. Some alcohol burn, medium to full body. Pleasant but average.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2004
A hazy dark gold, nearly but not quite an orange. Big foamy, rocky, chunky off-white head, great lacing. Sage honey and alcohol in the nose. Sweet up front with creamy texture. Nice feel to it with almond, citrus and honey flavors. Quite tasty but subtle. The 9% can sneak up on you! Quite good!
