3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the cafe near the abbey. Clear copper color. Effervescent. Decent head although not nearly as large as the head on regular Orval given similar pours. Very mild aroma. A touch of hops in the nose. No real discernible brett aroma--I’m not sure if they use brett in the Petite Orval. Small malt aroma and flavor. Very nice subdued beer. Good medium mouthfeel. I could drink this beer all night. Remarkable flavor and complexity for such a small beer.

Finally made the pilgrimage and so my opinion is very much coloured. But this is absolutely awesome. So much flavour at this abv, and hugely hoppy! Fresh, vibrant yet already with great fermentation qualities. I adore it. (On tap at l’Ange Gardien)

From bottle @ Hoarders Society Meeting Odense. Pours murky amber with a white head. Aroma of light funk, citrus, very light floral. Taste is watery, thin body, light caramel, very light funk, light peppery. Well, I’m glad I had the chance to taste this, but the regular Orval is miles beyond this one.

Orvals petits, altid været en sucker for the underdog! Potentielt grundet min egen højde.
Kryderi, Brett, humle, lidt altervin - hovedingredienserne i en munks kostplan.
