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.

Bottle A little thin maltwise considering what the style makes you expect. Pours a big white head on a hazy yellow body. candi sugar and Belgian spicines crowds out any malt.

ulrikolsen (271) - DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
Tap@MoederLambic. Pours clear amber with lazing white head. Aroma has grain up front, straw, hay and biscuit. Taste is surprisingly spicy with coriander, yet malty with light bread, biscuit, grain and ends in a semi-sweet fruity finish.

Val Dieu Triple es una cerveza rubia, no sometida al proceso de filtración y pasteurización. Su aroma es fuerte. Tiene en boca un ligero sabor amargo un suave sabor dulce que proporciona a esta cerveza un sabor único. La última fermentación ocurre en la propia botella y por ello, esta cerveza siempre está evolucionando en el tiempo. En el año 2005 recibió el premio Superior Taste Award 3 Stars en el International Taste & Quality Institute.

ardeo (133) - 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 !

sulawang (1000) - 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.
