Bready, overtly yeasty flavor. I enjoyed the other Val Dieu’s I’ve sampled, but not this one. Flavor was ’off’ to me. Weak aroma, nothing special.

vyvvy (6731) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Pours golden / blond with a large frothy white head. The aroma is very bready and malty with rich toffee and a good amount of yeast. Medium body with fairly crispy with a good amount of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with pils-like malt, rich breadiness and clean earthy yeast. the finish has some hops and pepper. A good beer, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Bottle. Yellow / golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, yeast. Flavour is fruit, yeast, spices, lemon, malt. Nice beer.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy straw gold color with a medium white head. Smells of some citrus, and a little bit of spice, but mild overall. The taste had a definite little funkiness to it, almost a slight sourness that really didnt work for this beer. It was fruity for sure, spices were held to a minimum. The slight sourness had a lingering effect in the aftertaste that realy turned me off as well. Better options out there.

3.2
redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2007
draft @ redlight redlight. Fient citrusy aroma, some sugars, spicy hops. Pours orange/blonde. Citrusy, some dry sugars, hints of noble hops enough to make their presence known and provide a slight bitterness. There’s some fruit evident, slight apple skin flavor, finishes really dry.

Rune (13506) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2007
330ml bottle. Soapy white head with good retention. Pale golden, partial cloudy. Nice lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of spicies and fruits. Taste of brown sugar, ripe fruits and a vanilla touch - in other words overrun by far too much sweetness. Dry ending and soft carbonation (22.07.2007).

3.4
yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle, 33cl. Slightly unclear, yellow-golden beer with a lot of carbonation and a big, white head. Banana-ish, slightly lemony nose and a little fruityness. The flavor is fruity as well, with pale malt and spices joining in. There’s also a little bitterness and yeasty note. Long, fruity finish with yeast and spices, as well as a pleasant bitterness. It is too fizzy in the mouth, and with a medium fullness. I could wish for more complexity in the aroma, it is almost boring, but the flavor is nice. Definately a beer I can drink more of. (070721)

rayg1 (594) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. This one poured out a pretty golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is yeasty and smells like bread dough with a light hint of both spice and alcohol to finish. Taste is again very yeasty but there is some substance and body to this beer yeast, malt, and spice blend well almost as if to challenge Duvel. An interesting one indeed and pretty good.
