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.

Hazy golden-orange color with a tight, creamy white head. Loads of ripe fruit, lemon, yeast and mild spice make up an attractive aroma. Pleasingly smooth, full-bodied palate. Initially very sweet, fruity/banana-like flavors dominate. Finishes with a bit of warm peppery spiciness with a touch of tart lemon and yeast. Very classy and well done!

Hazy orange, floating yeast particles, beautiful creamy white head, lace. Sweet, yeasty and fruity banana nose. Medium to full bodied. Citrusy, yeasty, fruity with a bit cardboard. Finishing spicey bitter with some fruity sweetness. Another very tasty Val-Dieu.

leaparsons (9837) - 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 (2188) - 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.

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.
