Tap at beertemple. Pours clear amber with a beige head. Aroma of fresh and wild Brett notes. Sweet pears, fresh hops, ripe apples, honey note on this one as well, some sweeter malts and notes of plums as well. Taste is so fresh and drinkable. Man!! I could session this on dangerous levels. Nice wild Brett notes, citrusy hops, apples, pears and some sweeter malts! Please come to my fridge this summer!

Butter, sour. It has way more of the sour brett flavors than the Orval. It is one of those beers that keeps getting better.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good cream to amberish tinted head over clear copper-amber beer; yeast fully bottom-clinging. Caramel, (slightly) citrussy hops, garden weeds, roasted carrots. Bitter, toasted, caramel - if without sweetness. Finish has some oxydized cookies, and something resiny to metallic bitterness. Light to medium bodied, feels well-carbonated, slick. Bitter pale ale. Ought to be more widely available.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ BeerTemple, small sample. Clear dark golden to amber color, medium head. Aroma is very fruity of citrus and strawberry, hint of horseblanket, some citric acid, slight spicy, some Bretty bubblegum. Bit sweet in taste, bit bitter, slight tart but not much of the citric acid. Very enjoyable beer. Not quite like Orval though, although I get the pronouncation joke :-)

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smell is of red berries, spicy belgian yeast. Taste is a bit spruce, good malt sweetness, and cherry cough drops, aswell as a soapy offtaste which reminds me of an old ragcloth.
