From the cafe near the abbey. Clear copper color. Effervescent. Decent head although not nearly as large as the head on regular Orval given similar pours. Very mild aroma. A touch of hops in the nose. No real discernible brett aroma--I’m not sure if they use brett in the Petite Orval. Small malt aroma and flavor. Very nice subdued beer. Good medium mouthfeel. I could drink this beer all night. Remarkable flavor and complexity for such a small beer.

Pours a clear light copper with a whiteish foam. Nose has surprisingly lambic similarities. So bretty and wonderful. The taste is lighter and less sour than the nose suggests but it’s all very ballanced and nice. Like Orval but lighter, less fruity yeast, more bretty and dry. Very fun beer.

Bottle. Gushed a bit. Looks like Orval with a large off white head with good retention and a light hazy almond brown colour. Smells like Orval too, though more fruity. Barnyard, leather, gooseberries, light sourness. Mild flavour with barnyard, dust, hay, wood, leather and dark berries. Light body with lively carbonation, little sweetness, some bitterness, watery texture. Bretty finish. Diluted Orval.

Bière sympathique mais qui manque de finesse sur la fin . Bulle fine mais mousse non persistante. Sympa à tester mais pas à plébisciter !

17/IX/16 - on draught @ l’Ange Guardien (Orval, Florenville) - BB: n/a (2016-1018)

Little hazy amber beer, creamy solid off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit fruity, some citrus, floral. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter hoppy start, fruity, notes, citrus, some grapefruit, slightly sour. Aftertaste: hoppy, bitter, soapy touch, some malts, bit of grapefruit. Nice one! Glad I finally got to try my last Belgian Trappist beer! :-)

Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of green hoppiness and mild Belgian esters. Taste follows with a malty backbone, hops are way more present than expected. Really nice.

ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2016
Draft at ’A l’Ange Gardien. More bitter, hoppy, less thick, maybe even drier than the original. Decent but give me a regular one any day over this one.

Glass at a l’ange gardien. Hazy orange beer medium head. Aroma is yeast, nutty. Taste is the same some hops. Not bad but prefer the "normal" one.
