Pours gold, with big white billowing head that lasts. Strong aroma of yeast, souriness, and some hops. Tons of carbonatoin bring a dry souriness to the nose and palate. Residual bitterness a bit harsh, but the beer is a bit young.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2011
Pours a golden orange color with a huge white head. This head does not go away! It is incredible! Aroma is fantastic, smelling grapefruit and citrus. Taste is similar to a hefeweizen, but a sweet version. Leaves a nice sweet taste at the finish. A little spice is in the flavor as well.
Bottle 330ml. @ home.
[ Re-rate on Orval Appreciation Day 2011 ]. Clear medium to dark amber orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, moderate to heavy hoppy, citrus - grapefruit, fruity, moderate to heavy yeasty, brett, light barnyard - leather. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. One of my all time favorit beers - alwas in the house ;O)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, bottled March 2005. Poured a beautiful amber/orange into a goblet with a huge, lasting, rocky, off-white head. Very clean & pleasant aroma, floral with champagne and horseblanket. Flavor is a bit confused... lightly sour, horseblanket again, just a bit spicy, but muddled with a background strongly redolent of citrus rind. Wimpy, acrid finish. Palate is watery and too fizzy. Not an impressive showing given its reputation.

A great beer.

Very good, but not outstanding. Its taste has a malt yet soapy taste that I find unappealing in most beers. The bouquet is very floral, like a greenhouse. Dry and quenches the throat.
