This is brewed by a small brewery with a brew length of only 100L. The brewer still works in the lab at Orval, and uses the yeast from there for this brew. Along with the Orval yeast this beer utilises Citra hops. For me this is the most exciting Belgian beer being brewed at the moment. Perfect pairing between esentialy an Orval and Citra hops, very exciting. However, not for you hop heads, whilst there is a clear hop presents, we’re not talking massive, very well balanced. If you get chance to get your hands on this, snap them up.

Petit gushing au décapsulage, Mousse blanche très très abondante, très aérée, grosses bulles, très instable, aspect mousse de vaisselle. Bière blonde foncée, orangée opaque, particules en suspension. Nez classique : malt et houblon herbacé, levure, un peu métallique. Bouche sur le céréale avant que le houblon herbeux et amérisant se développent jusqu’à une fin de bouche légèrement aùère et courte. Carbonatation forte, corps fin. Blonde sèche, équilibrée, mais un peu aqueuse et fade, buvable, très classique.

33cl, capped bb. - Thick milky yellow pour & white cap. Cooked rubber, dandelion milk, grasses, eucalyptus and proteins in aroma. Nice and Orval dry in mouthfeel, sadly that rubbery overcooked mint/lettuce quality interfering..a pity, bit homebrewy.

A 33cl bottle in De Bierboom, Brugge on 26th Nov 2016. Misty golden pour, none-stop gushing, white head: very lively indeed. Orval yeast used according to the bottle labelling. Hoppy, piney throughout, pity it was a gusher!

VDuquerroux (1686) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow hazy opaque beer with a medium white foamy head ; good retention ; voluted bubbly. Fruits (citrus), herb, biscuit note. Medium dry bitter refreshing, light sweet. Medium body, thin silky texture, high carbonation, fruity yeasty finish. Overall, a good one !

Swaroga (2221) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Sample. Hazy yellow/orange with a big head. Aroma is really bad with spicy and yeasty off notes. Taste is shallow, yeasty with a very short watery finish. Move along ...nothing to drink here.

Syfher (418) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass, from the fridge. This beer is a nice, interresting discovery. It got a wit, blond taste for a beer with a deep blond color. Great hop taste, with a little more acid aftertaste. The aroma is pretty poor though. Try it !

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2016
Hazy blond body, looks okay. Classical Belgian feel, lots of fruity yeast aromas. Simple taste, very simple hop and malt profile, light bitter. Not bad but hardly interesting no? (33cl bottle from Delhaize Florenville)

Lekker aroma, een beetje bitter zoals het hoort. Schenkt mooi blond uit met een mooi schruimkraag. De smaak is net zoals de geur. Lekker met een beetje bitter
