COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In contrast to all the others, the Orval Trappist brewery makes only one beer for the general public. It has an intensely aromatic and dry character. Between the first and second fermentations there is also an additional dry-hopping process. Through this the beer acquires its pronounced hoppy aroma and extra dry taste.
Bottled at 5.2% abv - can go up as high as 7.2%

Bonito color miel, turbia. Aroma a limon y flores. Buen cuerpo. Carbonatacion agradable. Sabor con toques de limon y herbales, en un conjunto complejo con un final fuertemente seco, amargo y duradero.

Oval uit de fles. Flinke schuim kraag . Troebel. Zoet met een lichte bitter. Zelf een rokerige toon. Interessant biertje

Color is a lovely orange red,not haty,but not penetrated by light either.Aroma is almost like a wine full scent of alcohol an fermentation.

Hard to describe, as the taste of this beer changes pretty dramatic as it ages in the bottle. Can be quite sour, dry and bitter and unlike other beers I know. Good with sour bread with Belgian cheese. One of my favorites.

Karaktervol, super onderscheidend. Nog geen bier geproefd met zoveel diepte in de smaak. Wat romig maar een prikkelende smaak op de tong. Bittere nasmaak. Ideaal voor een herfstdag.

VictorCosta (11) - - JUN 3, 2015
Colar muito encorpado e de boa duração. Aroma marcante, levemente adocicado, lembrando um pouco de especiarias. Bom corpo, mas cerveja muito suave na boca. Pouco amargor. Algum amargor no retrogosto. Aparência com alguma turbides. Excelente cerveja. Suave e saborosa.

drmet (220) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Gutes Bier Zitrus,Banane sind präsent -Kaugummi,honig und leichter malzcharakter -gut carbonisiert zu leicht und wässrig im abgang mit starker hopfennote. Kann nicht ganz mit den Top Trappistenbieren mithalten aber auf jeden Fall nen Versuch wert.
