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.

Val Dieu, quel superbe nom... la vallée de Dieu, et peut-être sa bière aussi... Et en plus du nom, cette bière est une des abbayes reconnues (label légal) et en plus toujours faite à l’Abbaye... Alors soyons respectueux de ce breuvage. L’étiquette montre l’abbaye dans un dessin gravé précis et détaillé sur une couleur de fond de style cépia. Triple de 9% abv. On a placé la barre au bon endroit... très haut. Et la couleur blond doré foncé est aussi des plus engageantes. En plus, le pétillant est par gros bouillons de milliers de très fines bulles. Superbe. En plus (encore) la mousse est blanche, épaisse, et du plus beau crémeux, alors que mon exemplaire est juste à la date en juin 2012, ce qui n’est guère facile pour une triple... Mais toutes les missions semblent remplies pour cette bière, avec succès.. Alors abordons les arômes … des céréales douces, de la levure et une pointe de pêche blanche. La texture est toute en finesse et en douceur. Le 1er goût est sur la gelée de fruits, et un panel de céréales : blé, seigle, orge. Le 2ème goût est un très grand goût de baie jeune avec une pointe d’amertume. La 3ème bouche part sur le fruit épluché avec une pointe de girofle. Mais elle est aussi à l’équilibre entre céréales et levure. Cette levure est dominée par le levain blanc. Très belle. La longueur est constante sur des saveurs toujours très douces. La finale ne peut souffrir de reproches, juste un petit regret sur une complexité qui pourrait être supérieure... mais c’est une remarque d’aficionado...

Wow this is a great tasting triple. Has a very similar appearance to Duvel but with a lot more head and body to it. Has a lot of different flavors going for it. Has hints of banana, and a nice overall balance. Head stayed strong with this beer also, a very enjoyable brew

UPDATED: APR 20, 2009 Garrafa. Coloração âmbar clara turva, com um fantástico creme branco denso, cremoso e persistente. Frutada e floral. Complexa, mas suave. Equilibradíssima. Perfeita! Levemente amarga e adocicada. Suave é a palavra! Carbonatação média/baixa. Completa, sem exageros.

Almost my perfect beer. I picked this up at the local liquer store a while back and ive been dreaming of it ever since. I havent had this in a while as it cost me around $6 a bottle but its a real treat. The thing i remember best is the big nearly brown head and the laceing you can get only from real belgian beer

Nice smooth tripel with thick velvety head. Cloudy straw golden in color, perfect tripel aroma, flavor is smooth and buttery. Head completely coats the glass, all the way down to the end. This is a beauty of a beer....

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2007 Indescritível taste of floral of malt. An WONDERFUL ale Tripel, for to say the minimum........................................... Indescritível gosto de floral de malte. Uma Ale Tripel MARAVILHOSA, pra dizer o mínimo. 2007 - Leitosa, maltada, destaca-se o aroma e o final de hortelã (!). Cravo, damascos, especiarias, fermento e notas florais levemente doces.
