The Brewery: The Cistercian Abbey "Notre-Dame du Val-Dieu" was founded in 1216 by monks from Hocht, near Liège.
Origin: According to legend, the uninhabited valley in which they settled was so hostile that the local population nicknamed it "Valley of the Devil". The monks renamed it "Valley of God", which later gave its name to the Abbey. The Abbey of Val-Dieu is the only Belgian Abbey to have survived the French Revolution. The Christian community of Val-Dieu still occupies the place and is united to the Cistercian Order. It is the only Belgian Abbey beer 100% brewed in a living Abbey, just like the famous Belgian Trappist beers.
Food: Ideal as an aperitif

I tried this one because my wife loves white beers. I find it tasty despite normally I prefer hoppy beers. I found it very good with tasty cheese and appetizers, or during a hot Summer. Definitively a good beer but not my preferred one.
