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.

Palidor19 (3180) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Pouring this beer, I had a very good feeling about this one. Its beautiful Golden color with white head loks and smells great. The Head sticks with the beer. A strong prences of yeast, malt and corrinder. The ABV is high but it doesnt feel like a chore to drink.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2006
11.2oz bottle pours cloudy golden with a fluffy white head that stays pretty well and laces down the glass. Aroma is yeast, apple, bannana, and corriander. Flavor is much of the same. Palate is smooth and airy with a nice clean finish. A pretty nice triple. Probably the best of the 3 from this brewer that I’ve tried tonight.

thegreenrooster (4284) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is very citrusy. (is this a triple or a hefe?) Flavor is very musty with a nice dose of corriander and yeast. Alcohol is hidden well. Won’t win any awards but still a nice rep of the style.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Draught at Magnolia in Durham, NC. Clear golden color with thin white head. Alcohol, yeast and granny smith apples round out the aroma. Yeast and alcohol come out again in the flavor. Moderately carbonated.

Wolfenstein (96) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle: Another very effervescent beer as expected from this Belgium. Pale orange hue with a fluffy, long-lasting white head. NIce lacing. Flavor started of very sweet and fresh in the beginning. The palate exploded with bubbles. IT finished rather clean. I was expecting it to be like Duvel, but it was not as flavorful.

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...
