3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Hazy orange/amber, small but creamy off-white head. Bready, slightly roasted malt aroma, with notes of butterscotch and some citrus hops. Medium bodied. Very well balanced with some sweetness, but also some (wheat?)acidity and a nice bitter finish. Very refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Clear deep golden with almost no head. Aroma has light maltiness, a bit of oxidation, a bit of stale hops and light fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt, light fruitiness and a decent bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Very hazy amber color with a small head and no lace. Fruity, yeasty, a bit sour leather aroma with toffee hints. Sourish, wheaty and fruity, spicy and flowery flavor with lightly roasted malt. Dryish, quite refreshing, light to medium-bodied palate with lemonadeish carbonation. An interesting, well-balanced but quite thin and bubbly "Orval lite". Not bad, but not quite spectacular.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Amber, cloudy with all the sediment floating around, miniscule head. Butterscotch and bready aroma, that comes out almost sickly sweet. Sickly sweet bread flavours. Disgusting-one for the zink.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Decent white head. Lager-like aroma with notes of flowers, hay and honey. Flavour is sourish and thin with some citussy notes. Short sourish aftertaste with metallic notes. Disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Unclear light golden. Rapidly disappearing white head. Good lacework. Weak, lightly sweetish aromas of cream-caramel, cereal and grain/malt. Taste is moderately sweet, slight fruity with an earthy hop presence. Medium body. Soft and quite thin mouthfeel. Short bitter/sourish finish. Not bad, not impressive either.
