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.

Pours a huge thick head, was a bit too much for me. Taste was balanced, but a little boring, not much complexity. Also excepted a little more from the aroma. Not great for a Belgian ale, but good overall.

Transfer from BA review on 2-20-13- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served an orange yellow colored brew with only a tiny white head floating atop the brew. The small head fades rather fast to leave only a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is fruity and sweet with notes of biscuit and doughy bread. The fruity aromas are of banana, apricot, peach and some apple. Mixed with these aromas are a lighter yeasty and spice smell as well as a little bit of earthy smell. Taste – The taste starts out with a mix of a bready flavor as well as a strong fruit showing. The fruity flavors are all quite light (in color) in nature with apricot and peach the strongest, but mixed with other flavors of orange and tangerine. A banana flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle and at the end. The banana flavor is accompanied by some sweeter honey flavors as well as notes of coriander and pepper. Toward the end the spice flavors grow more intense and are joined by a lighter alcohol boozy flavor, which leaves a warming and fruity spiced flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly below average side for a 9% abv triple with a carbonation level that is a bit on the lower side. The thinner body was quite nice for all the fruit flavors of the beer as well as the drinkability, although a little more carbonation may have been a bit for fitting for the flavors. Overall – A quite enjoyable triple with sweeter fruit flavors and just enough boozy, spicy and bready flavors to balance out all the fruit. Quite tasty.

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

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.

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.
