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.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2004
Beautiful white creamy head on a golden yellow body. Nose is quite yeasty with some wheat, nutmeg and citrus. Flavor is sour with some hay, fruit and a little alcohol. Very soft.

Frank (2868) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Cloudy pale orange with a nice creamy head that leaves patches of lace. Nose of dusty honey with a trace of sweet dried fruit. Medium to full bodied, slightly slippery on the tongue with a prickly cushion of fine carbonation. Candi sugar and honey sweetness is balanced well by a bit of citric sourness, hops, and some slight clove spiciness. A good tripel but nothing exceptional.

3fourths (8030) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Murky yellow. Small head, dying quickly. Spicey aroma, the usual tripel smell, somewhat soapy mouthfeel, and quite alcoholic. Spicey and sweet finish, lots of small bubbles, sweet orange rind and melon rind in the finish. Sour apple, dry and pastey overall.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Pours a golden blond color with very nice head and lacing for the style. Musky hop aroma with light diaper smell, not excellent. Flavor is hinted with banana and clove with the usual citrus essences. Finishes just right. Thanks Indra!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Cloudy gold pour, nice head and lacing. Doughy nose with some yeast and malt. Banana flavors some spices. Kind of an odd tripel

motelpogo (6699) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 23, 2003
had that sort of nutmeg and cummin mixed with alcohol flavour than can seem a bit medicinal. quite full and furry with some tartness in the finish

Citrus, yeast aroma, cloudy yellow, small white head. Malt, grapefruit flavours. Medium bodied, a touch sweet. Very nice.

igneous1 (1496) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2003
slightly hazy, medium golden lots of lacing on an eggshell white head. aroma is of fruit, saranwrap type plastic, can pick up on the yeast as well. quite a bit of fruit, but if you leave it sitting on your tongue for a couple seconds, you can really taste the 9%. just to rough..nice aroma though.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Nice aroma, fruity and yeasty. This beer has all the elements of a good triple just not in the volume of the style leaders like Allagash and New Belgium. Tasty just a bit muted relative to the best.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2003
This pale gold Belgian gives you nice lace on your glass and a sweet malty character that runs from the aroma through the flavor and on to the aftertaste.
