5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
pours amber with a powerful cushiony head that never seems to go away. Mesmorizing floral aroma with notes of rose petal, lavender, nutmeg, and white pepper. Fizzy mouthfeel. Chalky, floral, and earthy tones combine with exotic hoppiness and finish dry and champagne like. Underneath lays restrained and balanced brettanomyces characteristics. A truly unique,exotic, and unmatchable beer.

Bottled. Had an excellent, citrus flavor with a sharp finish, like a radler. Strong carbonation makes this easy to drink. I was very impressed.

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.
