The aroma is a fresh hoppy and grassy one. The color is a hazy orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy bitter. The palate is quite filling. A great beer - but not that Belgium.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Was this brewed by Deca for De Ranke all the time? Or did De Ranke do their own brewing in the early years. Well, this was clearly an early version - paper wrapping says Lot # 000001. Pretty, hazy honeygolden with a frothy almost fat head. Very refined spiciness in both flavour and aromas. And calling this "bitter" is no lie. Itís close to paralyzing my taste buds, hence I donít really sense the subtlety of this brew. Pity as Iím really an Orval afficionado. Must come back to this. 100299

6th October 2008. Dry and pretty bitter! Not much else coming from the hops to alleviate the bitterness. Needs to be very cold to be at all drinkable!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blond color, creamy head. Nice aromatic hop in the nose; light cheesy ammonia. Poor malt, but very good hop extraction, tastes really like the flowers. Aromatic palate, of course; dry. Unusual, but I like it.
