COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In contrast to all the others, the Orval Trappist brewery makes only one beer for the general public. It has an intensely aromatic and dry character. Between the first and second fermentations there is also an additional dry-hopping process. Through this the beer acquires its pronounced hoppy aroma and extra dry taste.
Bottled at 5.2% abv - can go up as high as 7.2%

hauxe (941) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2017
From the 2015 bottle. Pours dark orange with a tall, foamy head. Aroma is cherry, citrus, spice .. tomato, kind of funky. Taste is mildly bitter/sour with a dryness that stays constant throughout. Smoke undertones. Chalky. Finishes tart with a hint of warmth. Body is medium with a pronounced carbonation. It’s pretty good and has a fair bit of complexity but I‘m not overwhelmed.

When you realise after ~5000+ ratings that a beer you’ve used in tastings to trach people about beer is actually one you had never bothered to rate... Pours cloudy to hazy orange amber with tall white head. Aroma of herbs, spices, coriander, wheat, dried fruit. Taste is herbal, peppery, slightly funky finish with hop and fruit notes. Light and smooth body with average carbonation.

12 oz bottle. Yeast smells and some alcohol. Pours a cloudy honey brown with a huge pillowy white head. Big round tastes of yeast and leather, slight barnyard and sours all balanced really nicely. Oily mouthfeel with more than average carbonation. Dry finish. A very good belgian.

Bush_Docta (407) - - OCT 27, 2017
Pours hazy, deep amber with a white frothy head. The aroma is mirabelle plum, bubble gum, some caramel and funky notes. The taste is candied fruits, spices, orange zest, peach, caramel, a little tartness. The bitterness is medium, long-lasting. The carbonation is high, body is medium. Very fruity, drinkable and yet quite complex beer.

330 ml Bottle. 07/2017. Pours with a hazy, deep amber color and a large white head. Nose is very herbal, vinegar, ripe fruits, caramel and some yeast. Taste follows the nose with nice hops and a very nice dry finish.
