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%

Not my favorite style, but this one wasn’t bad. Exceptionally dry. Excessive carbonation actually makes it harder to drink. But it was well-balanced and not overly fruity.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovo pivo će te naći na svim relevantnim listama najboljih Belgijskih piva. Ali sad ću napisati nešto šta nije samo moje mišljenje. Ovo pivo neće legnuti svakome ! Aroma je OK , karamela i vinski prizvuk. Ali okus ..hmm , za moj gušt tu su spojili okuse koji meni ne pašu jedni sa drugima a najviše me smeta ta 'kiselina'. To je jedino Belgijsko 'veliko' pivo u kojem se nisam našao. Ali ne bih htio obeshrabriti one koji ovo čitaju a nisu ga probali ! Dapače , obavezno ga probajte ! Nadam se da ćete se naći u tom Belgian Aleu broj jedan na Rate Beeru ! P. S. Ustvari ne volim kisele Belgijske Aleove ! I ako hoću popiti nešto kvalitetno kiselo iz Belgije onda ću popiti Rodenbach ! ...e to je brate mili kiselooo :)

Hrc_Cro (632) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2018
0.33l bottle. Cloudy orange color with huge white head. Every time I poured it it has risen high again. TBT basement aromas, yeast, mix of herbs and fruits with even some cheese aroma. Taste is bitter, but there are like three kinds of bitterness that change over the time. Aftertaste is like smoked beer without the smokey part, woody, almost salty.

Fresh and fruity, with a strong, dignified palate. It’s a posh person trying to stifle their enjoyment of a song, standing still and straight, with just the occasional tap of the foot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Úgy látszik meg mindig nem értem meg erre a sörre. Van egy olyan mellékíze amivel nem tudok megbarátkozni. Várok meg egy 15 évet, hátha...

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
