Bottle @ London Gathering Nov 05. Slightly watery with odd balance between sourness and bitter orangey herbal hops. But all the same just a simple light easy drinking beer.

Bottle @ Chris’. This really is nothing more than a watered down Orval. If you are a big fan of Orval you will probably be a fan of this. Herbal, hoppy and spicy but rather thin. Acceptable drinking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Ange Gardien next to the Abbey: Great deep orange color with hints of red with a small rocky layer of a head. - Yep like it’s brother. Nose is intense and hoppy - just like it*s brother. Alos hoppy and spicey, but it lacks the borthers’ bitterness. But come on people - think about it 3,5% and there is soooo much in it - this is true brewing art! This is the beautiful petit homebrew of God!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy orange coloured, mediumsized head. Orange and lemon in aroma along with wheaty hints. Flavour is weaker than normal Orval, kind of "Orval mixed with water".

Yellow golden, not much head. Citrusy, horse blanket nose - watered Orval aroma. Citrusy, lemony, weak little brother of Orval. Add enough water to normal Orval and you have this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled@Akkurat) Hazy dark amber color with a small, tight head. Quite mild, dry-hoppy, fruity and yeasty aroma. Flowery-perfumy (lavender), hoppy and lightly spicy flavor. Quite carbonated, light to medium-bodied, dry and bitter palate. A quite nice "Orval Light".

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark orange-amber with small head. Beautiful hoppy-flowery aroma, little soapy. Watery-thinnish body with pleasent bitter-dry finish. Easy drinking and with more flavor/aroma than most beers 1 pct. (or more) stronger.
