3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great smelling beer. Didn’t quite have the depth of flavor I’ve come to expect in a Belgian Ale but that doesn’t change the fact that this beer is quite tasty and far more casually drinkable than any other Belgian ale I’ve had before.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aged bottle (2010) @ Kulmimator, Antwerp. Amber colour, just a little hazy (no particles), big off-white head. Taste and nose became rounded and soft, very much down on sourness (which I don’t particularly like in the regular Orval), with a more earthy, spicy flavour emerging next to caramel sweet malty groundtones. Low carbonated, good body (a bit watery), soft mouthfeel. Not on my toplist but an interesting taste.

33cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a wonderful light amber colour with a perfectly foamy and voluminous off white head which lasts the entirety of the drink. Aroma is somewhat subdued but faintly aromatic; the taste however is a perfect balance of flowery hops and candy sugar sweetness. A very good and unique Trappist.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Precioso color y espuma, maltosa pero amarga y con un ligero dulzor que no se empalagoso como en otras belgas.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gros col, orange brumeux, sens le printemps (herbe mouillé), gout un peu sucrer et amer et pamplemousse mais pas du tout dans les extreme d’une ipa, un peu sec. Bien équilibré.

És una bona cervesa, tot i així, de les trapenses és una de les més fluiexes en quant a sabors.

Very nice pop from the bottle as uncapped, clumsy poor left fair bit of head but it appears to be a highly carbonated energetic beer so not all my fault I feel. Great look, big airy white head that laces the glass superbly all the way to the Finnish. Beer is a warm orangy colour. Aroma of lemon rind with a slight vinegar sour yeasty presence. Little hints of sour, lemon rind as the beer is sipped. Was expecting a big sour yeasty saison like punch in the mouth but was pleasantly surprised at how approachable and easy drinking the orval was to drink. Very nice.
