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.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, - NOV 11, 2012
#611 Orangefarben mit sehr vielen, teils recht großen Schwebeteilchen; der viele feinporige Schaum rettet die Optik. Hefiges Aroma mit fruchtiger Aprikosennote. Der Antrunk ist im ersten Moment trügerisch hefig-malzig, schlägt dann aber schnell in eine alkoholwarme Bittere um, die mir nicht behagen will. Für ein Triple zu wenig komplex geraten, denn Gewürze oder ausgeprägte Fruchtaromen fehlen im Geschmack. Test vom 10.10.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,9,9,12,9 - 9,30

Dit was voor mij persoonlijk de minste van de Val-Dieu-bieren. Dan zit er aan de andere meer smaak aan.

Tämä oli hyvä. Oli joku toinenkin belgialainen bisse mutta en muista tämän nimeä

Gold yellow color with frothy thick head/small bubbles from a large bottle. Slightly sweet aroma. Light bubbly mouthfeel. Sweet light taste mostly of malts, belgiany yeast flavors, and candy sugar. I like this beer and its a good drink, but its a little understated in flavor and not the most memorable triple I’ve had.

Solid Belgian tripel beer. Very yeasty body, with some notes of grain, hop and fruit.

nool (12) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
I love the look of this beer. It pours very hazy with a very frothy head. It’s like drinking foam (in a positive sense). The flavours are good, but there’s an odd aftertaste that reminds me of the smell of urinal blocks that makes me mark it down.

Bottle. Dark orange, slightly hazy, nice frothy foam head. Large yeast aroma, blue cheese, slight hint of copper/steel. Taste is sweet from the offset, but very robust: like honey and marzipan. Slight boozy kick, a little creamy as well. Misses a sour kick. Mellow aftertaste. Good triple though.

AROMA: dough, citrus, herbs, APPEARANCE: pale, hazy, frothy (extremely), white TASTE: medium bitterness, light sweetness, PALATE: medium body, creamy, average carbonation, astringent, bitter, long finish, OVERALL: very well-balanced triple easy to drink; quite bitter aftertaste.

Moravius (442) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014
Flasche (33 cl), MHD 6/2014, über ein Jahr im Keller gelagert. - Orangegelb, wenig trüb. - In der Nase schwere würzige Süße, Hefe. - Antrunk recht massiv herb-fruchtig, süß, leicht weinig. Der hohe Alkoholgehalt tritt deutlich aber noch nicht fuselig hervor. Noten von Bitterorange, Vanille, Orangenlikör. Gut rezent, samtiges Mundgefühl. Mäßig bitterer Nachtrunk mit leicht krautigem Hopfen. - War mir von früheren Verkostungen als „eher grob gestricktes Tripel ... mit etwas grellen Fruchtaromen“ in Erinnerung, aber die längere Lagerung hat ihm sichtlich gutgetan und ein abgerundetes, harmonisches Bier hervorgebracht. Eine frische Flasche hätte ich allerdings bestenfalls mit 2,5 bewertet.

vickey9 (462) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a orange yellow. Ripe fruits, full body, sticky texture. Taste is rather sweet. Palate nicely overhelmed by tones of plums maturated in alcohol. B@H

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 20, 2014
couleur jaune trouble, petite mousse blanche. Nez fort malté et foins. Gout simple mais fort de levures et fruits jaunes et céréales.
