3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Renatos Pizza joint, Bristol ; (was pleasantly surprised to see Orval in their fridge) Poured a golden colour with an off white head that didn’t linger. Aroma was a fragrant mix of citrus and hop, wee bit of grassiness too. Well poised this fella, with malt and hops tangling nicely to make this a drinkable effort. Dry bitter hop finish. Niice.

lovely bottle from nelsons. Gloden and a tantalising white lacy full on creamy head. really like this one. bit musky in smell but gorgeous and well worth it in flavour. beautiful bitter notes and generally a beautiful pint. definitely the best organic so far.
