3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pour is clear roasted amber with a huge tan colored head and great lacing. Herbal, caramelly, grassy, lightly husky, light band-aid, earthy, and fruity aroma. Taste is medicinal, grassy, light pine, a hint of band-aid, grapefruit, and pine with a medium bitter. Medium body with high carbonation. Definitely get hints of Orval shining through, but needs a ton of work to get to that level.

Tap at bar Animal. Red amber, offwhite creamy head. Dry honey Brett and fruit notes, slightly on the youghurty side. Dry bodied, barn, berries, minerals. Needs a little bit more depth to rival Orvall, but a nice drink nevertheless

Hazy dark orange color, good white head. Horseblanket and fruityness in the nose. Medium-bodied. Fruity, some grassy, grapefruity hoppyness, barnyard. Very good Orval-copy although lacks the depth of the original.
