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.

Hazy yellow, medium head, sweet citrus nose. Quite hoppy, with citrus and spices against a sweet malt backbone. Alcohol is hidden nicely in the taste, but I feel it going down. A winner.

Hazy lemon honey with a dust storm yeast penetration under a large white thundercloud like, lasting creamy yellow head. Nice lace too. Initially very faint fruity hops and light doughy yeast. As the beer warms a sharper fruity alcohol emerges. The simplest way I can describe this beer is a big bodied slightly sour wheat beer start followed by a long burst of fruity sweetness and whiskey like alcohol. As with the aroma the fruit and alcohol flavours also intensify as the beer warms. Unusual and interesting. Try it.

I shared a magnum of this with a friend. Lots of honey, citric and other malty flavors with touches of bread. A medium head that dies down to what looks like lightly whipped cream. Medium to full body with a powerful stinging, soft-hoppy, peppery finish.

Ernest (7917) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2003 Head is initially large, frothy, rocky, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, light bread), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, dough), lightly hoppy (flowers, lemon), with notes of banana, pineapple, clove, and coriander, light note of alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Not quite enough to balance the sweetness, and although the aroma is a little yeast-heavy, it's interesting and pleasant. Very clean.

caesar (7469) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2001
Pale color with a nice head. The typical triple flavor like a HJ Triple or the superior Karmeliet Triple is absent. It's comparable to the Chimay Triple i guess. Good palate though.
