Smooth and light aroma. Beautiful thick appearance. Good and easy taste, not too bitter. Palate could be stronger. Overall nice summer beer at the terrace.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
the aroma of sour fruits, maybe citrus... some hints of farm... dogs, pigs, sheep... what about the taste?.. it’s rough, with notes of pine needles, grapefruit peel, key lime and some spicy grasses... it’s strange, it’s not the traditional Belgian ale, it looks like Belgian IPA, rather rough one...

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hoppy brett aroma. Murky light brown color with off-white head that disappears immediately. Flavor is astringent, woodsy and bitter with some dark burnt caramel. Medium to light bodied. Oily. Fizzy carbonation. Very astringent.
Overall, this is a borderline offensive attempt at copying Orval. It is missing all of the subtlety and balance of Orval. I’m not going to go so far as to say that it is appropriation, but if you’re going to cash in on the reputation of a different product (as you can clearly see from the rating that they are) you better deliver. This beer does not deliver.
