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.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Pour is initially mostly clear, with an ok fluffy head that fades and leaves pretty good lace. Mostly bready pils malt aroma with light spice and yeast hints. More light bready malts, ligth dough flavors, hints of esters and spice, but malt dominated and maybe some hop bitterness. Overall too clean and one-dimensional for a tripel. Needs more spices, esters, yeasts etc...

ABUSEDGOAT (2653) - California, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Hazy golden body with a small head. The aroma is orange, hint of pears, and had a huge peppery feel. It’s 9% so big surprise. Flavor is quite a bit better than the aroma, and the finish is sweet. There’s definitely some spices in there that I couldn’t get out of the aroma. Lingering aftertaste that starts out nice and ends with alcohol. After it warmed a bit it felt very nice, very light in my mouth. Not like a light beer. But light in a good way.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2005
yellow pour, oaky sweet flavor and smell. malty at times. easy drinking, not too offensive, not really any hop presence in this one. not bad at all, a good beer to perhaps intrigue people into liking good beers. but for someone that has been drinking good beers for a while, this might not do it for you. not bad but not the best.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2005
I really enjoyed this one. It poured hazy gold with a 2-finger white head. Aroma of hopcit, coriander, Brett, and orange zest. Tastes initially fruity, with mid-palate hopcit and floral spices. Finishing notes of apple. Complex, lively palate, with great complexity and well hidden alcohol. Achieves a semi-dry cidery element as it warms.

Sten (742) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2005
Cloudy golden colour with a white head. The aroma and taste are malty and sweet. Very soft with not much body and complexity. You would not say this has 9 alcohol%. But certainly not a bad beer. (Bottle 33cl)

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Pale gold and somewhat hazy, this sported a fizzy head for a while that devolved into a halo-film cover on the drink. The yeasty aroma also had scents of tropical fruits and a gentle floral hopping. Fairly light-bodied and slightly spritzy, it delivers a sweet fruity taste with white and black peppers, a light hop bitterness, and a touch of alcohol. Very nice drink.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Hazy golden-orange color with a tight, creamy white head. Loads of ripe fruit, lemon, yeast and mild spice make up an attractive aroma. Pleasingly smooth, full-bodied palate. Initially very sweet, fruity/banana-like flavors dominate. Finishes with a bit of warm peppery spiciness with a touch of tart lemon and yeast. Very classy and well done!

Hazy orange, floating yeast particles, beautiful creamy white head, lace. Sweet, yeasty and fruity banana nose. Medium to full bodied. Citrusy, yeasty, fruity with a bit cardboard. Finishing spicey bitter with some fruity sweetness. Another very tasty Val-Dieu.
