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.

Bottle shared by dEnk @ The Hague Tasting. Opaque pale yellow color, huge white head. Smell slightly malts and a citrussy hint. Taste slightly malts, citrus, softly bitter. Well I’d say it might be simple but it’s quite decent. Average to medium body amd carbonation.

77ships (4251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Thanks for sharing Sebletitje. 33 cl. bottle sampled. New Belgian brewery, located close to Orval (the brewery in the town Orval) so maybe they are using their yeast as well? Nice ancient theatre themed label. Pours a murky musty orange with little, patchy white head. Smell is sweet grapefruit, plaster, oddly seems a bit vintage, very thick, surplus of yeast, sweet malts and lightly dusty fruits. Taste is bitter esters, too much, thick layer of yeast, plaster, very light cellar notes (odd), overripe, lightly mouldy fruits, grapefruit & peach, bitter herbal in the finish, hint plastic. Body is dominated by excessive yeast. Agreable.
The breweries website is only their logo at the moment - like the old Darkthrone website.

Clear blond beer, irregular white head, little stable, bit adhesive. aroma: bit fruity, some yeast, banana peel, bready touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: little bitter, metallic, some citrus, pretty yeasty, grassy bitter hops, more metallic. Aftertaste: some citrus, very metallic, banana peel, nice crisp bitterness in the end. Luckily.
