COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SAY "OH WHAT" IN DANISH. NOT ORVAL – BUT ÅRH HVAD. Color is Cloudy amber and has a white head. The taste is peppery, malty with a hoppy finish.

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

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!

Smalle (215) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle from Delhaize supermarket. Aroma: quite similar to a young Orval, but the farmy brett aromas are more forward than in Orval (at the expense of some fruitiness). Taste: fresh, again more brett-forward and a bitter finish. Not just a decent "inspired beer", a good beer allround

ElManana (1144) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle bought at Delhaize. Orange with a white head. Peppery, brett, orval-like smell. Taste is much more pepper than Orval, and drier too. Nice, but simply give me an Orval. Bit too bitter.

Köpt på M Bar Go. Klar gyllengul färg med generös vit skumkrona. Frisk doft av citrus och äppelkart. Smak ungefär detsamma.

Создава& это пиво Миккелл& вдохнов& знамени& бельгий& элем Орвал. Мне не показал& что эти сорта очень похожи, во вкусе присутс& специи и немного фруктов. Очень интерес& долгое послевк& которое по иному раскрыв& вкус пива.

Well done ye Trappist monks of Denmark! Nearly prefect emulation and in some ways even improvement on yer Belgian brethren. And three cheers to Delhaize for offering this treat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
