2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy amber, gorgeous sexy coating with extra strong legs...stinks like rotten apples! (not finding it pleasing)
Rich flavors of dark fruits and burnt bitter hops with slightly sweet apples and lemon. Powerful coarse and dry after taste. Very strong vinous feel and a dry coarse mouth coat.
Overall : Looks can sometime be deceiving... Perfectly drinkable for trying a different taste, but way too spicy for me, or was my bottle too fresh? I will try this beer again after at least 2 years in the cellar, until then I donít see why this beer is so popular.

From a bottle at a fancy restaurant. Great complex flavor. Earthy but sweet and slightly tart. Outstanding balance. Unique in a crowded segment. One of my favorites. Want to try again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 28/08/2014. Amber colour with a long lasting white big head. Fruity hoppy aroma; a bit sour also, yeast. Taste is lightly sweet with a quite an intense bitterness. Rather complex beer with a hoppy and somewhat dry character in the beginning with a finish that is best described as a mix of maltiness, burn sugar and belgian yeast , Full body and lively carbonation.

Iíve never rated orval, thatís weird. Tastes like orval. Itís great, if youíre reading reviews to consider buying orval, youíre in trouble.

Lichtbruin troebel bier met veel schuim wat mooi blijft staan. Daarmee is ook alles gezegd. Smaak is iets zuur en apart, citroen en muffig. Ik blijf dit een bijzonder bier vinden wat niet bij me past.

Bottle from Cornelius (bottled on 24/03/2015). Hazy copper, big fluffy off-white head that gently collapses down to crags. Yeast, dry grass, dried stoned fruit (cherry, prune?). Medium body, initially quite sprightly fizz that fades a little. Some booze, malts, farmhouse hops and light bitter finish. Caramel sweetness and slightly oily. I can see why people get excited.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not quite sure why this gets such a high rating. Itís good but it ainít that good. Rich hazy amber almost orange in colour. Much more bitter than the average Belgian ale with a hoppy spiciness that disguises its strength - in fact 6.2% is rather humdrum in its native land but thatís hardly a criticism. I like it but Atletico Bilbao rather than Barcelona for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dense hazy copper brown with white frothy/rocky head. The head never really settles. The nose is very classic and at the same time truely unique. Yeasty, barn qualities, fermenting hay and mineral, brown plum. The taste is refreshing with mineral, yeasty fruit. Unripe hops delivers bitterness and ballance. A slight sour note is detectable in older expressions and this can bring further complexity. The aftertaste is slightly malty, slightly yeasty, farmy and finishes in a refreshingly bitter way. Iím glad I live in world where there is Orval. Please donít change.
