Bitter, small hop punches, if you think orval is bitter, then expect much more. Good to drink a couple of them in a row!

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Clear golden/yellow with big head.
NOSE : moderately intensive aromas of fresh yeast and hops like peach, citrus zest, soap. Sweet cereals, lactic aromas.
SIP : creamy with decent carbonation. Sweet cereal start with fruity and soapy background. Gets for a moment acidic but transforms quickly into dry and bitter flavors like lemon seed. The bitterness goes deeper in the finish and even more in the aftertaste. Interesting how it evolves. After couple of sips the bitterness getting more and more strong.
OVERALL : interesting beer. Hop aromas are moderate but the bitterness is deep and getting stronger with every sip. It really pushes me to take another sip to get some of that malt sweetness but since it gets more bitter each time I have to accelerate with my sips. Nice.

Golden coloured brew, ok head. A bit unpleasant mouthfeel, sharp bitterness, and some sourness that gets trough. Expected more from this beer.

Bottle. Golden color. Soft floral hops in the aroma. Decent floral citric hopflavor. Hints of cardboard. Floral hops and a hint of caramel in the finish. Past its peak way before the best before date.

Goudgeel bier, grof schuim maar wordt snel minder. Aroma is citrus fris. Smaak is bitter met klein fris zuurtje. Body is redelijk.

Blonde dorée voilée, effervescence fine et légère, col blanc fin. Les trois malts et cinq houblons se font successivement sentir avec de la douceur, de la bonne amertume et des notes de fruits et d’épices. Plaisir garanti!

Spicy, fruity aroma with plenty of hops that manages to intrigue, but does not appeal much to my tastebuds. There was something in the aftertaste that reminded me of urine... Maybe I should blame the waittress, because it was from tap. She did take a little detour to the toilets. Very bitter finish. I salute the effort, but it’s not for me
