3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Fergus at the Tropical Croydonia tasting. It pours lightly hazy golden with a thick white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, grainy, paper, sugary and a touch of sherbet. The taste is crisp, bitter, sherbet, lemon peel, cracker, doughy, pepper spice and alcohol boost with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Tastes alright. A fairly basic Belge.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy amber. Bubbly, lively, off white head. Bready. Bretty. Lime. Lemon. Taste is crisp dry. Palate is sharp, and overly fizzy. Hops turn up on the finish. Quite like fresh Orval. Be interesting to know if it ages as well.

Money well spent. Has similarities to Orval but hits slightly different parts of the palate, a little saltier, a little less orangy.
