Koelschtrinker (12665) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2015
Trocken hefiger, leicht kaffeeartiger Antrunk. Steigende Bitterkeit, die aufgrund der Trockenheit weniger stark wirkt als sie eigentlich ist. Der Kaffee bleibt, die starke Bitterkeit gefällt. Erhöhte Karbonisierung. 12/12/9/11/10/11

kevinator (1389) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Nice touch to a popular style. Malty and spicy aroma. Tan brown with a golden hint and nice creamy head. Medium weight with a sharp finish. Full flavor of malt with pepper and a hoppy end.

33cl flesje via Delhaize, Kontich Alcoholpercentage van 6,8% Uitgeschonken in Leffe glas Uiterlijk: oranjebruin troebel met mooie, volle schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: aroma van zuur fruit, smaakt gistig, kruidig als koriander, flinke hopbitter in nasmaak, licht fruitig als grapefruit Conclusie: eigenlijk het eerste bier van Mikkeller dat niet in mijn straatje past, te weinig fruitig, teveel bitter en ben absoluut geen fan van zuur ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berlinoise2go (666) - NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy. Huge, offwhite head, slowly diminishing, leaving a wide and thick band of lacing. Aroma of citrus, cherry, dust, brett, vinegar, caramel. Medium body, average/soft carbonation. Cherry-fruity, lightly tart and mildly bitter taste with pale ale ’dustiness’. Fairly astringent bitter finish with Orval-like dryness.

Well, it is supposed to be a copycat of the Orval, but other than the aroma, the beer is not as close as expected from its model. This one has less "sugary-fruity" (the pear) taste and more "watery" in the mouth. A good find, but nothing exceptional.

florent.janssens (210) - - MAY 12, 2015
Très trouble. Arôme similaire à l’Orval. en fait tout ressemble un peu à l’Orval. Son goût est un peu plus amère et plus épicé. Bonne bière, un peu décevante au palais, elle est trop floteuse.

Ulysse (300) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2015
Strong yeast aroma. Abundant uneven foam made of tiny bubbles. Rather spicy in the mouth especially the aftertaste.

huineman (417) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 12, 2015
Pours dark amber with greenish white head. Aroma is bitter orange, yeast, dirty water. Aggressive carbonation. Watery, unstructured, unbalanced. Abrupt finish. Bad. I love Orval, but this is nothing like it. I may lose friends by saying this, but just adding Brettanomyces doesn’t make Orval, nor anything close. Huge disappointment.

Bière Ambrée qui se la joue "Orval" en moins maltée mais en plus amer et surette. Son nez est fort parfumé: senteurs de malts caramel moyennement torréfiés, aux relents crémeux voire savonneux avec un houblon très fleuri. En bouche, le corps malté assez léger et court aux saveurs d’amande, de noisette, laisse une belle longueur surette et amère sur les papilles. C’est moyennement rond mais doux avec un arrière gout crémeux. Dommages, les brett qui jurent un peu trop de façon agressive. Pour palais avertis!
