Copper tone with a dirty yellow head that stays as a creamy layer all the way, dense lacing. Spicy and sour aroma. Taste of spice and beligan yeast. The aftertaste is a bitt bitter, like tonic water.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky deep amber orange colored beer with big white head dissolving quickly leaving lacing. Aroma has apple, toffee, barnyard and resin. Flavor is yeasty and peppery with toffee and some crisp apple. Palate is only slightly sour, thicker than medium and soft but with sparkling carbonation and stinging bitterness. Finish has heavy herbal bitterness. Aftertaste is resinous, almost licoricy, yeasty and peppery, plus slightly soapy. To me it’s more modern than Orval. Anyway, a decent crisp sourish Belgian ale.

On tap at Three Floyds. Poured amber with beige head. Funky tart aroma like a sour. Light carb med bod. Tastes barnyard very dry. Not as sour as aroma lets on.

Aroma of fruits, malt, yeast, Brett funk, peppery notes, fresh hops. Flavour is light sweet with a wonderful moderate to medium bitter finish. I love Orval and this is certainly a nice approximation.

Flaske: Orangebrun let diset med et stort skumhoved. Duften er brettet med en god del frugt og tydelig humling. Humlingen går stærkt igennem men det fungerer rigtig godt. Dejlig øl.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a fairly transparent fuller orange with very light caramel head. Smells tart, semi-sweet, and a little funky; kind of sour. Tastes like it smells, but with just a damp brett presence and no sourness or tartness. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Interesting brew, not great by any stretch though.
