This is brewed by a small brewery with a brew length of only 100L. The brewer still works in the lab at Orval, and uses the yeast from there for this brew. Along with the Orval yeast this beer utilises Citra hops. For me this is the most exciting Belgian beer being brewed at the moment. Perfect pairing between esentialy an Orval and Citra hops, very exciting. However, not for you hop heads, whilst there is a clear hop presents, we’re not talking massive, very well balanced. If you get chance to get your hands on this, snap them up.
