Hopkikker (24) - Lommel, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Cloudy orange to beige. Hoppy nose with brettanomyces yeast, alcohol (Jenever) and citrus. Tastes very bitter, dry, alcoholic and herbs with a sour aftertaste. Only an Orval impression in the aftertaste.... After a while, as the beer warms, I get more ripe fruits aroma, the bitterness is milder and indeed the Orval impression gets stronger

tlind2 (1506) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle@Mikkeller tasting room, Copenhagen. Amber color, full off-white head. Complex aroma with sour notes. Flavor follows after with lemon and hay. Good balance. Very close to Orval, but more hops in the profile. Nice!

Bardzo ciekawe i oryginalne. W smaku podobne do Barley Wine, cho? oczywi?cie ?agodniejsze. Nadaje si? tylko do powolnego spo?ywania ;)

willisread (1896) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy orangish amber with a huge soapy head that lingers throughout. Horseblanket, hay, cheese, lemon, tangerine, wood and some pear all over the nose with the barnyard smells really standing out. Maybe some lacto in there as well on the nose. Taste is fairly similar with a little tartness. As it warms a woodsiness comes to the front and becomes a little overbearing at times. This is very Orval like, but not as good as the original but a nice tribute nonetheless.

Hamirubi (427) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Strong, thick white to beige collar on a blonde, even amber brew. This hazy ale has sharp carbonation, sharp hops and sharp hay aromas. It makes me think of citrus and spices too. The taste is full-mouthed, very powerful too. Beautiful subtle malts, some garden spices I cannot really pinpoint. The bitterness is solid and resembles a stout beer: Think of the roast and the peppery features. The fizzyness, dryness and bold yeast hint at an Orval trappist - it does! -, the sweetness is beautifully balanced. I would not say this beer has no sourness, but it really lingers at the background. A nice Mikkeller brew, for sure!

33cl bottle. Pours hazy amber with a beautiful thick solid head. Aroma is sweet malts, some citrus, yeast, spices and the obvious brettanomices note. Taste is similar, very nice "clone" of the Orval. Dry bitter finish, medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Excellent.

AgentAle (1383) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
Aroma is clove, hay, sour grapes, vinegar and clove. Taste is sweet light malts, clove and fresh hops. Slight funk and earthiness on tip. Pretty well balanced over all.Aroma is a hazy amber with a medium head that retains fairly well.
