3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, best before date 6/10/2016, from Whole Foods Market, SoMa, San Francisco, CA.. The legendary Orval, at last. Pours a bright hazy orange color with a huge white frothy head that lasts for long. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with notes of red apples, strudel, light citrus and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Taste is slightly tart which comes as a surprise. Apple and citrus come as the most obvious flavors. Its similar to a Demi-Sec Sparkling Wine. Intensely tasting but smooth highly drinkable Trappist. Almost no carbonation. It’s a good, refined Belgian Ale but it’s maybe a little overhyped.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of a kind. Appears amber/red with a foamy, almost endless head. Retains an olive kind of bitterness, thanks to its hops and its yeast.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle, from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Nice and fresh, only a couple of months old so much less of the bitterness I remember from my last bottle. Pours hazy amber with medium white head. Nice sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is fresh, hoppy, sweet, with light saison-esque spice and ultra high carbonation. Refreshing and hugely enjoyable beer.

Hazy copper with debris and enormous off white head. Aroma of fermented fruit funk. Light slightly sweet malt taste, some citrus bitter. Herbal spice funk brett in the finish.

It smells amazingly fruity. Definitely dry and leaves a bitter taste that I can't describe.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 19-Oct-2011, aged at room temperature (20C) and drank 28-Feb-2015. Great head but it did not remain for long. Persistent high Aromas of sherry, aged alcohol, aged plums, figs, old hops. No malt aroma detected. Flavors of leather, earth. Low bready, biscuity malt flavor. Alcohol taste is smooth, aged. Acidity is low to medium, not lactic or acetic, but like a good wine. Mouthfeel is medium thin, with good carbonation; little warming alcohol. No astringency. Aftertaste is short, pleasant and dry. A bit odd but I did not pick brett in the aroma as I expected.

For me this is the perfect beer. Golden amber beer with a creamy head that lasts and lasts. The aroma is citrus and hoppy. The taste is slightly bitter but the palate is perfect and well balanced. I love this beer!
