mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Unmarked 33cL bottle at LíAnge Gardien on 9/12/06. Pours just as beautifully as itís big brother, big pillow foam atop a nice amber colored beer, retention is average and the lacing is world class. Very much reminds me of Orval turned down to 7 (instead of itís usual 11), still has all the trademarks, subtle hoppiness, nice tartness, perfect maltiness all just slightly muted. A bit drier maybe and surprisingly nowhere near as light in palate as I was expecting for a 3.5% beer.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2007
Clear light amber beer with only a smale white head. Fresh citrusaroma. Also a bit hoppy and yeasty in the nos. Sweet maltiness in the mouth with a nice bitter aftertaste.

imdownthepub (10625) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Bottle conditioned at Cafe Ange Gardien, Villers devant Orval, Belgium. Amber with big white head. The bottle is unlabelled, the difference indicated by the Green badge on the glass rather than Blue, I love these traditions. Thinner version of the big brother but still hoppy, juicy, mid malt with a apricot fruitiness. Short finish but very drinkable.

JoeinDahlem (1333) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2007
Copper color is less hazy than its big brother. Lightly floral and yeasty aroma. Flavor is light, dry and dusty, with very mild hops and carbonation. Damn refreshing, especially after a hot day exploring the abbey ruins. And I do wish there were more tasty beers with lower alcohol levels.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2007
A Mes rate: What a treat! Every single bit what I hoped it would be. A downable and mellow Orval. Itís never going to be a huge scorer but itís a fantastic beer and at 3.5% perfectly sessionable. I WWWWISH!

Although it has not much alcohol in it, his taste is still very unique as his stronger brother. And even thid beer you can drink after years.
