Cask: Status uncertain. Cold filtered in bottles.
A great golden beer with a fresh citrus, hoppy aroma. This wonderful wholesome organic ale has a dry and bitter finish which brings you right back to earth.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2009
(Bottled) Clear, deep golden with a small, firm and white head. Sweetish and fresh aroma of lemon and honey. Pale-malty flavor with moderate, grassy hop bitterness, and sour-sweetish lemony hints. Lingering, dry and bitter-grassy finish. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. A reasonably fresh and enjoyable summer ale, with maybe a touch of harshness in the hops. A British pale ale ale meets Northern-German pils.

SaintMatty (4677) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2008
Cask (Salamander,Bath) - Golden in colour. Honey in the aroma which is also lightly hoppy and fruity. Fairly hoppy and bitter at first, the taste then becomes more fruity with some grapefruit in the finish.

wyzzywyz22 (1881) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2008
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.

renffisch (723) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2008
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.
