3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Excellent looking, brilliant, pale amber colour, very white head...superb. Peach, tropical fruits and bread in the aromas, really nice too. In the beginning, the taste is elegant and delicate, very well balanced, crispy and rich in nuances to pineapple, apricot, biscuit...Very hoppy and complex. Nevertheless, as the beer gets warmer and developes, it becomes a little bit unstructured, the yeast overcomes all those nuances and began a very flat beer, with barn and horse blanket touches, and an acid twist, that spoil the overall. Very strange. I liked a lot in the first sips, when it was chilled, but it deceived me a lot in the end.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Âmbar alaranjada levemente opaca, espuma branca de boa formação e persistência, apesar do aspecto irregular. Aroma ácido, acerola, champagne, levemente adocicado. No paladar o lúpulo é mais aparente, misturado com a acidez do brett, ambos de leve intensidade. Corpo leve e leve/média carbonatação. Aftertaste mantém as mesmas características iniciais, sem muita variação. Acho que ainda não me acostumei com brett, o paladar fica aguado, acidez predominante, fermento muito aparente, não me agradou.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Kosmonaut, Manchester. Hazy orange shade with a white head. Orange and banana notes in the aroma. Taste leans towards orange, apple and lemon. Surprised it’s just 5%. Dry and fairly bitter finish. Hops certainly factor in. This is almost part pale ale, part saison, part Belgian ale. It makes for an interesting combo.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice looking hoppy fruity Belgian ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle camping in France. Cloudy orange pour, huge white head. Aroma is quite funky, brett, fruity, citrus, some spices and quite earthy with some blue cheese. Flavor is quite sour, slightly bitter and with a decent body, heavily carbonated. A bit heavy on the brett.

Aroma is of bretty yeast as is the flavour. Quite intense carbonation. A strong flavour that lingers nicely in the aftertaste. Very close to Orval.
