3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy copper big off-white head. Interesting aroma of citrus and spice and earthy yeast. Taste is not overly sweet or bitter. Good amount of malt, medium body, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish with spice. Overall this was unique and pretty good for a style that’s not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I don’t know, I guess it’s a 12oz bottle, but it could also be 33cl. Pours a mostly clear, bright gold with a frothy, clumpy white head. Nose is a really nice mix of Belgian yeasty esters and nice lemony hops, earthy, cloves, leafy veg, candy sugar, a little bit of birch. Flavor is sweet, spicy, candy sugar, lemons, oranges, mint, birch, earthy, grass, hay. Medium bodied finish. I know this is a take on Orval, but it needed a touch more Brett to be in the same league. As is though, it’s very nice. Complex but drinkable. Could be sessionable if it wasn’t 7% abv.
