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%

Bottle from beer hawk. Well, it is certainly an interesting beer. It combines strong sour flavours with sweet, with bitter. It is supposedly only 6.2% but is probably more (definitely feels it), have to drink it like a wine. Red wine, sour raspberry. At times felt this was stunning, at others i wanted to like it but just found it confused. Hmmm.

Fantastyczne piwo, świetny aromat brettw, dziki, trochę owocowy, nieco ziołowości chmielowej. W smaku rwnież petarda. Wytrawne, solidnie wysycone, dzikie, owocowe, chmielowe. Niby proste piwo, bez żadnych ekstremw, ale fantastyczne.

Birra di colore ambrato chiaro, corposa ma al tempo stesso molto facile da bere. Aroma e gusto molto particolare rispetto al suo genere, forse anche grazie alla luppolatura a freddo.

buki (248) - Otwock, POLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Aromat: Trawa, ziemia, woda mineralna. trochę dzikości, pomarańcze, cytrusy.
Wygląd: Złocisty i delikatny kolor. Piana wysoka, drobna, ładnie obklejająca. Szybko opada
Smak: Białe wino, białe winogrona, trawa, ziemia, nalewka ziołowa, pomarańcze, cytryna, woda z saturatora (naprawdę nie mam lepszego porwnania :)).
Odczucie w ustach: sporo gazu, jak na belga ok. Goryczka duża, trawiasto-ziołowa, przyjemna, średnio zalegająca. Alkoholu całkowity brak, aż musiałem sprawdzać czy przypadkiem nie kupiłem czegoś innego! :D. Bardzo orzeźwiające, lekkie i sprężyste. Gładkie i smukłe.
Oglnie: Sztandarowy belg. Legenda tego piwa nie bierze się znikąd. Warto sprbować, tym bardziej, że chodzi u nas w cenie regularnych piw (~13PLN).

Evilman (222) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2017
This is without a doubt a good beer if you like hops and bitterness. Not necessary my cup of tea ( or beer if you prefer) to begin with, as I usually prefer stronger Abbey or Trappist ones, still, its obviously a pleasant one with a strong character. Quite a lot of bitterness at first, then much smoother in mouth. The end was way more pleasant to me. If you like IPA beers or classic Belgian ones, youll surely like this one a lot.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2017 Birra di colore giallo dorato/ambrato. Schiuma cremosa e di media persistenza. Allolfatto sentori di prugna, spezie e zeste. Al palato corposa ed asciutta con note di frutta secca, spezie, zeste, zagara e malto. Nel finale piacevolmente amara. Una grande trappista perfetta con i formaggi

33cl bottle from local Alko, Viikki. An excellent product. This effort of brewing in its style reminds me of saying: Dont join an easy crowd. You wont grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform and achieve are high. Jim Rohn Nice unique brew with all the farmhouse hints.

33 cl. bottle at P-Cube, Trezzo sullAdda. Cloudy dark orange/light copper colored with a frothy off-white head. Yeasty and slightly funky aroma, sour fruits. Taste is again slightly funky and soursweet. Almost no bitterness. Lively carbonation with medium body and creamy texture. A pleasant finish: somewhat sour, a bit funky and dry. This is indeed a very nice beer.
