Vignale (3997) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2012
Pours amber with big foaming head. Lots of brett on the nose with typical wood and stable notes. Not as tart as expected pr as I wood have wish, but a little to medium bitterness and dry finish makes it really drinkable anyway. A bit of herbs, but not the bitter ones, stable and wood. Good! pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle as pictured. Poured a hazy gold with decent little islands. Smelled spicy, peppery, definitely like you’d expect. Very dry finish overall. tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle 33 cl, Ölbutikken. Pours clear deep amber with a huge fluffy beige head leaving lace. Aroma is malty sweetish stable horse blanket piny grapefruits and fruity. Flavor is malty sweetish and pungent in beginning very much more fruits grapefruits and spicy peppery bitterness in the middle sustaining all the way to the end where the bitterness just increases. Finishes with a longlived bitter pungent and peppery aftertaste. edgallow (4468) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2012

Bottle. High fluffy white and long lasting head. Hazy orange amber body. Astonishingly sweet fruity green apples aroma. Dry fruity flavor with a peppery note. Low carbonation. Long dry and bitter aftertyaste. Alcohol well hidden.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a big rocky off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.BeerLimey (2155) - California, USA - MAY 24, 2012
The aroma is bready malts with spicy earthy yeasty notes and a touch of brett as it warms.
The flavor is subdued - watery earthy malts and a little fruit with spicy floral hops that linger in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery with lots of sharp carbonation.
Overall, I haven’t really liked the Belgian IPAs, and this is not a great rendition of one (watery, subdued). I didn’t pick up much brett - a little came out as it warmed.
Excellent Orval clone. Intense perfume and orange nose. Balance of sweetness and spice on the palate. Only knocking it down a few points because it’s a clone. But brilliant 6 pack joergen (29192) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle at yespr.
Hazy orange coloured with a huge white head.
Sweet and fruity aroma of citrus, caramel, hops and brett.
Sweet and fruity flavour of hops, brett, citrus and grass.
Dry hoppy finish. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Deep copper/amber body, large fluffy off-white head, good sheet-like lacing. Bretty, to say the least. Wet hay, must, light citrus, wheat, and pale malts dominate both the flavor and the nose. Medium bodied, easy to drink with a nice effervescent carbonation. A very interesting beer that does suggest Orval -- although not exactly a clone. Should be interesting to see how this progresses with time in the cellar. Ungstrup (38381) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemony, hay, caramel, yeast, and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, yeast, spices, caramel, fruits, and hops, leading to a dry yeasty finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
