2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
In short: A soapy/perfumy wild hoppy golden ale. A failed Orval-ish beer. Something went wrong here.
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed approximately six months after purchase, bottle forward to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Partly cloudy golden-orange body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bretty-perfumy, I can see a bit of the funky floral Orval thing going on here but this Ov-ral is definitely more on the flowery-perfumy side of things with also lots of phenols. Intriguing aroma. Taste is a major letdown. Very sweet, the flowery-perfumy character of the aroma turns into a mouth full of soap, tortured hops bringing quite a bit of cheese, way too much Orange Crush™, hospital gloves, chewing on flower petals, to make matter worse the alcohol apparent. I can tell there were good intentions here, they were really trying something, but all the elements of this beer clashed together. Bad timing? Bad bottle? This was a disaster. I had such high hopes for this beer, I was as disappointed as my blind date when we were at the restaurant and I asked the waitress for crayons.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A beautiful cloudy amber beer with a smallish off white head that leaves lace. Some yeasty floccules in the pour. Aroma is an absurdly good combination of tart, fruity wild yeast funk and lots of floral/fruity hops. The flavor jumps on the tongue with slightly sour fruit (green apple/citrus) that blends into a resiny/piny hop bitterness. Just amazing.
