Bontus (778) - Flanders, - AUG 21, 2012
Draught @ LAnge Gardien, Orval. Pours amber orange dark golden, shiny beige head. Looks the same is regular Orval. Nose of dry noble hops, grass and herbs. Imo more hoparoma than regular Orval (the monks are just craving for a light IPA). Alcohol percentage 4,5% said the menu. Taste is primarily yeast/dough, with good carbonation, finish is bitter with a touch of sourness. It is a bit lighter than its big brother, but its the perfect session ale, hands down.

Bire sympathique mais qui manque de finesse sur la fin . Bulle fine mais mousse non persistante. Sympa tester mais pas plbisciter !

17/IX/16 - on draught @ lAnge 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! :-)

jbruner (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2016
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 (2009) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2016
Draft at A lAnge Gardien. More bitter, hoppy, less thick, maybe even drier than the original. Decent but give me a regular one any day over this one.

SVD (1704) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
Glass at a lange gardien. Hazy orange beer medium head. Aroma is yeast, nutty. Taste is the same some hops. Not bad but prefer the "normal" one.

Sigmund (6950) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2016
330 ml unlabelled bottle at Mikkeller Bar, Aarhus. Brown color, large white head. Aroma and flavour very much like the ordinary Orval, with "farmhouse" and "spicy" notes, distinct hops. It is quite impressive that so much flavour can be put into a beer of this moderate ABV.

zinneke (205) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Tap @ lange gardien. Amazing aroma, very herbal, grassy, light brett, peach marmelade, cereal and yeast. Taste is fruity with very bitter finish. Amazing beer, reminded me of a hoppy barrel aged beer, very light sourness and very hoppy.

josanguapo (1309) - SPAIN - JUN 2, 2016
From trade with BenBreeg. In Teku glass. Playing Tomb Raider 2015. Lots of foam although not gushing. Very acid in nose. Less acid in mouth but still not a thing I can enjoy. Wont miss they dont bottle it anymore
