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.

VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 11.2 oz. stubby brown bottle. Served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Thick, one and a half finger head that goes down to a thin ring and stays all the way to the end. It has a nice gold color and leaves some great lacing. Smell: Sweet fruit aroma complemented by some spices, pretty much sums it up. A faint alcohol smell is in there as well. Taste: A sweet fruit taste is dominant, with a strong alcohol kick a hint of hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel: It’s medium bodied with average carbonation. Creamy, smooth, and easy to drink. Overall: The sweet taste and smell combined, and the fact that this is a very easy to drink brew, are misleading. Not that this is a bad thing, but it’s something most people don’t expect on a beer with a this high of an alcohol content. But that’s what gives it such amazing character and feel. This is a must try.

ardeo (124) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle 33. Triple classique mais qui passe très bien à mon ’test’. La mousse est abondante sur un beau liquide orange. Le nez est floral, malté, houblonné. La bouche est onctueuse, moelleuse, de bonne longueur. La meilleure réussite de la brasserie, à mon avis !

veceo (1190) - CROATIA - MAY 21, 2016
Orange/brown color, average sized off white head. Aroma of malt, honey, spices, yeast. Taste is similar with some fruitiness, apricots, maybe plums. Not overly sweet but not rrally excitomg either. Medium to full body, lively carbonation. Good.

sulawang (986) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Visual: Pours pale light golden orange without a significant head, spotty layer of ultra micro bubbles, spread out steady micro clusters of activity. Nose: honey barley malt, tangerine undertones. (lvl-)-pungency Attack: Crisp-micro creamy, thicker smooth mouthfeel Mid-palate: background orange citrusy tangy alcohol mixed with dense (lvl-7-sweetness), honey-sweet, light toasty barley malt Finish: subtle alcoholic heat, tingly residual honey barley malt, very subtle hops. Summary: A solid tripel with excellent balance – not too heavy or harsh, good sweetness and that characteristic honey-floral-candi sugar barley malt flavour.

minutemat (4040) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
330ml bottle @ Radisson Blu Palace Hotel, Spa, Belgium. Pours hazy gold with good off-white head. Aroma is sweet triple yeast. Taste is a nicely balanced tripel with a good vanilla icing sweetness. Really quite a lovely triple.

BlueGaljoen (97) - FRANCE - APR 24, 2016
Triple assez banale. Couleur classique pour un triple. Carbonatation importante. Du houblon, de l’acidité bien équilibrée. Les goût sont un peu trop courts en bouche. Tout est assez banale sans être mauvais.

Bière blonde peu acide qui cogne bien (9 degrés tout de même !). Bue dans une tulipe en grès, je n’ai pas pu apprécier la blondeur de la robe. Goût de miel?
