Bontus (714) - Flanders, - AUG 21, 2012
Draught @ L’Ange Gardien, Orval. Pours amber orange dark golden, shiny beige head. Looks the same is regular Orval. Nose of dry noble hops, grass and herbs. Imo more hoparoma than regular Orval (the monks are just craving for a light IPA). Alcohol percentage 4,5% said the menu. Taste is primarily yeast/dough, with good carbonation, finish is bitter with a touch of sourness. It is a bit lighter than its big brother, but it’s the perfect session ale, hands down.

olio (8472) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a large white head. Very interesting aroma here, herbal, urinal cake, rowan berries, apricot, some earthy funkyness, yeast and grass. Flavor is somewhat fruity, some apricot and rowan berries again, yeasty and grassy. The aroma is quite interesting in a good way, slightly bland flavor though, as expected.

33 cl bottle @ home
No idea of vintage or ABV, but at least this does not feel old
Aroma has bretta notes, earthy tones and some mild toffee. Flavour has strong urinal tones, tartness, grapefruit, mild apricot and hints of toffee. A bit foamy palate. Also some menthol in the finish. Refreshing and quite good; better than I expected.

Bottled. Pours deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of yeast, fung, grass and citrusy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and pleasant bitter. Light bodied, watery to oily texture. A nice and crisp brew. 🌟🌟🌟

Ik vind dit echt een bijzonder verrijkend bier, heb er uiteindelijk vierhonderd kilometer moeten voor rijden maar het was het zeker waard. Je proeft echt een groot verschil met de normale orval. Bijzonder verfrissend en smaakvol biertje. Stevige dorstlesser, heel jammer dat dit bier niet in de reguliere handel te verkrijgen is.
