Bottled 500ml (BB 12/2011)
Served with yeast. Hazy orange color, good white head. Aroma is like in Orval! Horseblankety, honeyish. Light bodied. Flavor is also like Orval! Horseblankety, fruity, peppery, honeyish. Well, I think it was not intended to be like this but I love it!

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2011
Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Golden colour, huge white head. Aroma is spruce, quite acidic and very sour and spicy. Flavour is acidic wood, some spices, and sour and yeastyness. With yeast in it, a very good orval clone... So if you want a good rating, throw in the yeast, just in case it would be infected....

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. A big, dense, off-white head sits on top of a more or less clear, golden body. Rather funky on the nose, lemony and milky, with fruityness and some pale malts. Dry on the palate, and rather effervescent. Lemon and some milky notes in the flavor too, along with citrus peel and a touch of pale malts. Pleasant bitterness too. I’m quite convinced it’s infected, but it has turned out quite successful. Quenching. 111105
