11.2oz bottle Best before end 20/05/23 poured into a chalice at 53° Fahrenheit 9% ABV. The beer pours mostly bright honey colored amber with nearly white head. The head recedes to an uneven cap and leaves a web of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet pale malt with additional notes of banana and clove. The taste is semisweet pale malt with restrained banana and clove. Mild earthy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with above average carbonation and a dry finish. No trace of the ABV in the aroma or taste. Overall, very good. Nicely balanced & dangerously drinkable at 9%

Pours a hazy golden color with a tall fluffy head and a lot of lacing.

Smells and tastes of bread, bananas and spice. The sweet malt is balanced with a mild bitterness.

Medium light body with light carbonation. Smooth clean mouthfeel.

This is a very good Triple.

De color dorado, con poco mas de un dedo espumoso de buena retención. Cuerpo ligero, de textura sedosa y carbonatación media. Aroma a levadura y afrutado. Sabor con notas florales y algo de cilantro.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Pours a slightly hazed gold with 2 fingers of billowy cream colored head. Fantastic lacing & head retention

S: Pears, yeastyness & appleskins in ample amounts

T: Follows the nose, also Golden Delicious appleskins and dryness up front. Some breadyness & rubber band as this warms along with dryness & appleskins & a little lemon. Finishes with Golden Delicious Apple, dryness & a little juicy fruit ester

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation

Just a well put together Tripel, the only flaw I really found was it needed to be a little more hoppy

L: Cloudy orange/amber with a large, slowly dissolving off-white head that laces the sides of the glass and ends with a thick film
S: Cloves, mild banana, fresh wheat, white peasant bread
T: fresh wheat, hearty malts, some yeast, sugars, maybe some apple/peach/pear, with a subtle banana & clove background
F: MIld carbonation that cleans the tongue and leaves a mildly bitter-sweet aftertaste
O: A truly excellent beer. Not as heavy or boozy as some triples, but that is not a detriment. Val-Dieu has made a very well balanced, drinkable ale that, if not for the 9%, makes an great session sipper. Make up a plate of soft cheeses and enjoy.

On tap at Brewhouse Gallery. Clear golden with a big white head. Smells a little sweet, fruity, a little yeast and candy. Tastes a little sweet with some bright fruitiness. Earthy yeast and some warming spices. Bitterness cuts the sweetness. Medium heavy. Not a style I drink a lot, but it's enjoyable.

L-Pours mid-gold/lighter amber, slight haze (more accreted sediment left in bottle), 2Cm pillowy white head, still holding 10mins later.
S- Aromatic wood/timber notes.
T- Pretty much follows the Smell^, then into a pungent slightly sour+rich fruitiness (reminds me of baked cooking apples or the rich/slightly sour apple in a Brit apple crumble). It's clever, it doesn't hit you with a sense of being 9%, it's well crafted, subtle and more sophisticated than that.
F- You can tell it's pretty pungent but no one facet is really standing out from the whole and declaring itself OTT.
O- It's very drinkable indeed, and I'd be delighted to buy+drink this again.
Bought from BelgiumInABox Antwerp/BE for delivery to me in London/UK. BB: 03/10/21.
The label is entirely redesigned and it's far simpler, really pared back actually and classy looking. 330ml bottle, BB: 03/10/2021. Bought from BelgiumInABox Antwerp/BE for home delivery to me in London/UK.
