Bontus (754) - 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.

ElManana (1893) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2016
Draft at ’A l’Ange Gardien. More bitter, hoppy, less thick, maybe even drier than the original. Decent but give me a regular one any day over this one.

Glass at a l’ange gardien. Hazy orange beer medium head. Aroma is yeast, nutty. Taste is the same some hops. Not bad but prefer the "normal" one.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2016
330 ml unlabelled bottle at Mikkeller Bar, Aarhus. Brown color, large white head. Aroma and flavour very much like the ordinary Orval, with "farmhouse" and "spicy" notes, distinct hops. It is quite impressive that so much flavour can be put into a beer of this moderate ABV.

zinneke (205) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Tap @ l’ange gardien. Amazing aroma, very herbal, grassy, light brett, peach marmelade, cereal and yeast. Taste is fruity with very bitter finish. Amazing beer, reminded me of a hoppy barrel aged beer, very light sourness and very hoppy.
