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.

Lekker aroma, een beetje bitter zoals het hoort. Schenkt mooi blond uit met een mooi schruimkraag. De smaak is net zoals de geur. Lekker met een beetje bitter

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass, from the fridge. This beer is a nice, interresting discovery. It got a wit, blond taste for a beer with a deep blond color. Great hop taste, with a little more acid aftertaste. The aroma is pretty poor though. Try it !

Wellbalanced taste... light on exotic fruits, chouffe like hops... Like chouffe, ore bitter but a bit lighter (not 2% though)... surprisingly good

kraddel (5868) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2015
Pours clear blonde, big white head. Smell is dry hay and spices. Waaw, extremely overcarbonated...Taste is bitter , some funky yeast ... Is it because of the location ( and the fact I know where it has been brewed ) or does this really taste very damn simmilar to orval? Not like its actually the exact same taste, but its very comparable.

oh6gdx (24925) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Bottled@fonefan. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is spices, some yeast, fruits, toffee and mild sugary notes. Flavour is very mellow spices, fruits, toffee. Slight burn to it, but very nice and balanced.
