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%

Cloudy golden brown appearance with a lively head. Yeasty sour fruit smell - which is more pleasant than it sounds. Bitter slightly salty taste - but balanced with an undertaste of dried fruit and nuts. Lovely on the palate - medium body, with a subtle carbonation and a long finish. A lovely well crafted beer

Fruity. Nice aroma and initial flavor. A lot of foam ever time you pour no matter what you do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2017 Nada que ver con sus hermanas trapenses,ni mejor ni peor,pero destaca por su pequeña acidez al brett

Bardzo złożone piwo. Aromat dziki, brettowy, lekko kwaśny. W smaku natomiast całkiem co innego. Gładki, słodowy, nieco ziołowy z belgijskim charakterem. Obowiązkowo nuta owocowa, w tym charakterystyczna brzoskwinia i przyprawy. Zaznaczona goryczka, na finiszu pojawia się lekki kwasek kojarzący się z piwami dzikimi. Niesamowita złożoność, zdecydowanie najciekawsze piwo klasztorne jakie miałem okazję próbować

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Het is als Hagrid die de deur intrapt om jou je ticket naar je vrijheid te overhandigen en ondertussen je plaaggeesten op hun nummer zet. De marinier die uit de dood opstaat om jou door de nacht heen te helpen terwijl de vijand vergeefs je schuttersputje bestormt. Dit bier komt binnen en je weet dat het goed is. Zo'n bier

Nie spodziewałbym się po Trapistach takiej bomby. Sour, delikatny dzikus, dość wysoki chmiel. Super kombinacja. I to belgijskie, gładkie podłoże. Bardzo dobrze gra to ze sobą. Chcę jeszcze.

One of my all time favorites. Bone dry ale that has golden-brown color and somewhat hazy, yeasty appearance. Refreshing fruity & herbal hoppiness. A somewhat tart aftertaste that lingers on (tart mainly in a stylistic, positive way).
