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%

Świetne piwo. Aromat rześki, owocowy, choć mało intensywny. Mętne, herbaciane, fenomenalna piana i przyjemny lacing. Przepyszne w smaku, ale wysycenie za wyzokie jak dla mnie. Mimo kilku minusów piwo jest godne polecenia

Der er tilsat humle efter gćringen, men det giver ikke rigtig noget humlet smag alligevel.

This beer needs to age. This is just a 2014 bottle and it isn’t tasty as it could be. Still pours amber with a huge head. Yeasts are alive and you can see a carbonation twister spinning from the bottom of the glass. Fruity aroma, taste of malts, but not too complex.

Very cloudy amber with huge off-white head that reduces steadily but leaves persistent skim. Aroma of a sour, with green apple, stone fruit and funk. If chilled, let it warm closer to room temperature to open up. Even so, the upfront taste of this nine-month old bottling is must and heavy aromatics tending toward camphor, as though it were poured from a not particularly well-sealed cedar chest. Some pear notes find there way through, and plentiful carbonation provides a satisfying mouth feel and attractively dry finish. But even with aeration, this lacks the complex flavor profile of many other Trappist ales. I’m going to try again with a bottle aged longer, because this one was disappointing.
