3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber color with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, grass and spices. Taste of strong yeast, malts, caramel, herbs, spices and hops. Nice creamy finish, light bitterness, strong full flavors.
Long time I had an Orval, but I suppose it is quite similar. Really Nice brew.

Bottle. Pours an unclear amber color with a big off white head. Aroma is floral, peppers, slight funky brett. Flavour is medium sweet with sour touches. Slight peppery mouthfeel, nothing disturbing though. Decent, well balanced beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a quite clear copper though there is sediment on the bottom of the bottle, oops I guess I should have rolled it... Head is a soapy good couple inches of dull white that leaves fair lace up the glass. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spicy, earthy, and grassy. Flavour is grassy, earthy, mild enjoyable bitterness, Belgian yeast, spicy, some caramel malt, a little funky(which I?m liking) and a bit fruity. This is likely the best Belgian pale ale I?ve had to date!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle, shared with b3crew and dudeabide. Mostly clear red / orange color. Bigger off-white head, kind of rocky. Good retention. Bigger body. Soft, kind of stronger carbonation. Very dry finish. Good earthy, spicy hop. Light caramel malt, light metallic. Light bitterness. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, sort of spicy. Flavor is alright for what it is, I guess.. An OK trappist clone. Carbonation and texture is just too strong for this to be enjoyable, though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Magnum bottle thanks to onkelgobber’s friend.
Appearance - cloudy amber with a generous head.
Nose - definitely like a Belgian Ale, very yeasty and with the sweet malt quite missing in hops.
Taste - very yeast dominated again, maybe some lemon and a faint toffee, but not much.
Palate - tight body, thin but very persistent.
Overall - it got better but it wasn’t very exciting to begin with.
