A taste from a bottle @ Belgian embassy of Finland. Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is slightly tart malts with some yeast. Flavor is sweet tart malts, fruits, yeast and a hoppy finish. Finally a beer that even remotely resembles Orval. Great. JaKeAFC (1283) - ITALY - AUG 28, 2017

Bottle. Color: Amber, thick frothy off white head. Taate: Alternating sweet and sour notes, herby, fruity, hints of yeast. Lightly hints of caramel and hop, finish is more to the bitter side.

Another massive whale pops out of Maakun’s cellar, big thanks! Slightly hazy dark golden amber with thin head. Sweet malts, molten plastics, andives, dandelion. Light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium body. Light spiciness. Weird stuff. Orvals asshole maybe. Maakun (6434) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2017
Bottle shared. Slight hazy golden with off white head. Some cardboard, apricot, light caramel and sweet malts, dusty herbs, grassy, light fruity hops, sweat. LOL at this being anything close to Orval. Light sweet and medium bitter. Just medium bodied. It’s not horrible but not very good either. stijnemans90 (237) - - FEB 4, 2017
Ik had de amber. Erg slap, beetje spa rood, of op zijn best spa fruit. Erg waterig dus.
