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%

Maybe my allergies are kicking in, but i don’t get the high aroma ratings, i bairly smell anything. Nice hazy golden orange color. Ok tasting, but i prefer the Rocheforts. Not to spicy, a drop of lemon, and the normal ale flavors. Easy to drink, besides the initial quick spark to the tip of your tonge. A good solid beer, but i’m not overly impressed.

11.2oz bottle, 4.79. Aroma is sweet and medicine like. Notes are of orange, raisin, cherry candy, and a little smoke at the end. Pours a huge white, rocky, frothy head that’s mostly diminishing. Body is a hazy medium amber. Flavor is moderately sweet and lightly acidic with an average finish. Palate is light to medium with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. I could see people really liking this beer but it reminds me of a fizzy orange DayQuil.

Hazy golden ale with a small head. Smells of ripe summer fruit. Full of flavour, sweet & sour, apricots, apples.. A classic.

RATING 100. This one is one of my favorites. It was between this and Yulesmith Winter for rating 100. I’ve been drinking this since the days when I could walk to the moan and dove. This light trappist beer has a great sour funk that I found amazing as I was beginning to get into the trappist ales and cantillon lambics. The aroma is citrusy lemon and peppery. The mouthfeel is creamy and light at the same time. The flavs include citrus, barnyard funk, nuts, and slight pepper. The sour funk flavor is this medium bodied beer is what makes it so unique and amazing. The finish is buttery sweet with a touch of hops. The dry finish makes me want to buy a case of this excellent beer. Tonight I get to start working on 100 more with a Yulesmith Winter.

Bottle. Shaken up in it’s travel from Belgium to Alaska to my fridge in Panama. Tons of foam. Every thing about this is intense aroma and balance. Fruits and spice weren’t as strong as I’d like, and have experienced in Belgian ales, but was there. Easy going, and I was sad that the bottle ended. I do think that there are better Belgian ales out there though...
