3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Immediately took over the glass with an aroma that was immediately apparent and a massive white head that lasted fro awhile. The aroma was spicy, peppery, and maybe a little flowery. The first taste was so carbonated it was tough to taste anything but small bubbles. The flavor improved as I drank this. This was a solid belgian but i think i set my hopes to high.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 A very special Trappistbeer, one of his kind due to the special fermentation process. The evaluation when the beer is getting older. I like the beer the most 9 months after filling. A beautiful aroma and a sensational dry mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 52F, Trappist Glass. Bananas, bananas, bananas, lost of fruity esters present in the nose, which was fairly light but again quite filled with bananas. LIght cloudy color, actually supprised me by its light color, with a light and very fluffy head with great lacing. A very light sweet initial taste to compliment the bananas, a bit llike a bannana split, plenty of vanilla, a bit of woodiness, some light chocolate notes, starts sweet and finised fairly dry, with some nice spicyness as well. A medium palate with great carbonation. Nice brew, quite different from what I was expecting, very estery quite good and very unique.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in my Orval glass. Copper orange with a fizzy white head. Some Belgian lace as expected. The aroma gives of lemon-lime, dust, dish soap, and some heavy floral notes. Lots of brett character. Too much in my mind. The carbonation is very aggresive. Very dry. I’ve had bottles of Orval that I’ve really enjoyed, but this particular bottle isn’t doing it for me.
